  • I bought this before taking my 4mth old on a plane trip. Moby was too tedious and ergo too bulky. This worked great for travel but not something I really use anymore. Mar 21, 2019

  • We got this with our first, and still use it with our second! I love how travel friendly it is, and that it folds up nice and tight when you aren't using it! It's comfy, and easy to clean too! Jan 18, 2019

  • This worked great for a 2 month period. After that, the material began cutting into my baby's chubby thighs. It was light weight and cool, which I loved. I just wish we could have used it longer. Aug 28, 2018

    Built for quick trips and easy to stash in my diaper bag. Not the most comfortable due to the straps but definitely great for sitting with baby in airplane/airport or trip to the store. Aug 26, 2018

  • The material is thin. Very portable since it can be folded but it's cutting into my baby's thighs, leaving red marks. Jun 14, 2018

  • We have several carriers and this is by far our favorite! It's so compact! Fits in the diaper bag when not in use. Fits comfortably on my petite frame and husband's broad build. Baby loves it too Jun 06, 2018

  • I am a “stream lined” parent and I don’t like having to carry a ton of things. This is the lightest and easiest to use sling I have ever used. Apr 20, 2018

  • LOVE THIS! We had the Boba Wrap originally, but switched to this after baby was always too warm. This has made several trips with us, including HOT Las Vegas, and he and I both love it. Apr 13, 2018

  • This is great for its packability! It folds very compact, so is great to keep in your bag, for those just in case needs. It dries quickly. It's not padded so not super comfy as an everyday option. Apr 06, 2018

  • I wanted to love this bc it folds so small but it was so uncomfortable, I only used it once. There is no padding on the straps so you feel all the weight. Jan 22, 2018

  • Lighter carrier, useful during summer months, near water activities (dries super fast), and as a back up when space is limited Oct 23, 2017

  • What's not to love?! This carrier is comfortable, packable, lightweight & keeps baby cool! Our Boba Air came with us everywhere from the park to vacations around the world! Oct 09, 2017

    Love my boba air! I have the new 2017 one with the extra padding on the shoulders and legs. Folds up right in my purse. Great for travel. I take it everywhere because it doesn't take up space! Aug 15, 2017

  • I loved this when my son was 6mo-2.5. It was light-weight, easy to take with in the diaper bag, or in the backseat. It also worked well in the rain, not absorbing all the sweat. Great back up too. Feb 16, 2017

  • Expensive and terribly uncomfortable Jan 04, 2017

  • Baby gets too hot in this carrier. Jan 02, 2017

  • I love, love, love how small this carrier packs down, INTO ITS OWN POCKET no less!. The straps, while they don't have padding, are nice and wide so the weight gets distributed evenly. Must have! Dec 13, 2016

  • I got this to keep in my car. Works great for quick trips and convenience but its not as comfortable as my ssc. Oct 20, 2016

  • Perfect light option for hot Texas summers. Maybe not good for long time baby wearing, but for a short trip out! May 20, 2016

  • Great for travel with smaller kids, and useful even later on. We even used it snowshoeing with our three year old daughter and it was great - still comfortable, dries quickly. Apr 15, 2016

  • My husband loved this carrier because of its portability and simple fabric. Jul 13, 2015

  • Great for QUICK carries, like a trip to the grocery store. Gets very uncomfortable very quickly though. Apr 16, 2015

  • I live on a subtropical island so it is hot and humid. The white Boba Air is lightweight like a windbreaker and can be rolled up and placed in my diaper bag. Mar 23, 2015

  • Husband's go to carrier. Lightweight material is great for mitigating the body to body heat generated by carrying. Easy to use. Mar 20, 2015

  • Love this carrier - lightweight and grows with my baby. Dec 08, 2014

    Not the most comfy for me or for baby !! Oct 10, 2014

    Great travel carrier and diaper bag back up! Sep 25, 2014

    We have the heavier ErgoBaby which is great for my husband who is 6'1" but I prefer the Air Carrier - very light in weight and fits our baby perfectly. She loves being carried in this when we shop. Aug 19, 2014

  • I keep it in the car for quick trips to the store. Lil dude doesnt get too hot (we live in Louisiana) since it has a pretty breathable material. Not for long hauls since it digs into his thighs Jun 06, 2014

    This is a great carrier to keep in the car or your diaper bag because it's so compact when it folds up. I don't recommend it as a carrier for a long bout--just for quick stops like the supermarket. Mar 03, 2014

  • It is exactly as it says. No padding, it is more of a backup carrier for when traveling. It is still way too big for our 12lb baby. Feb 01, 2014

  • I love this carrier, because it's small enough to fit in my diaper bag when I'm not using it. Jan 31, 2014

  • While this carrier is great because it's so compact it isn't sturdy enough for a newborn (even though they say it is at 15 lbs) but better for a baby who can hold their head up. Definitely wait til your baby can do this before buying. Jan 09, 2014
