  • The mesh is wonderful for outdoors and the beach, but it left marks on baby’s legs when I used the active ktan for over an hour. I prefer the original cotton fabric, even when it’s hot. Sep 19, 2019

    The best baby carrier. WAY easier than any of those complicated wraps, much better than the Ergo Baby. Highly recommend and liked that this one was breathable for summer weather. Jul 31, 2019

    Best K’tan in the whole line. I’ve tried the breeze, and the fabric was still too hot (even in winter). This is breathable and comfortable. Easy to use and stays secure. Way better than full-on wraps! May 07, 2019

  • I tried other wraps and was always frustrated by how long it took to put on. Not to mention doing it in public was a pain, this one gets the job done I seconds! Love wearing my baby with ease! Apr 07, 2019

    Love that this is lightweight and breathable. It has the look of a wrap but is much easier to use. You do have to buy it for your specific body size so you may not be able to share with your partner. Mar 25, 2019

  • It’s okay, I had my son in the summer so I wanted something breathable. I had a hard time getting the straps right and not twisted. Would use for spring/fall, too hot for 100+ degree weather. Jan 07, 2019

    So soft & breathable w/put tons of fabric that you have to figure out how to wrap! Love it for carrying my newborn! Feels so natural for them - similar to in-utero! Great for skin 2 skin. Nov 24, 2018

  • Baby loved this for the first 3 months, but I think that now the same snugness that he loved before, he really hates. Oct 30, 2018

    This is the best carrier for a newborn summer baby. Lightweight and easier to put on than a wrap. I use this all the time - easy to wear and wash. Wish they had more color choices. Sep 23, 2018

  • Don't use it nearly as often as I thought it would. I like how its easy to wear and no confusing knots to tie. Sep 20, 2018

  • Takes Some practice but once you get it it’s easy to get on and get baby in. Love it to help me carry baby on my hip. He loves facing out too. Fabric is nice. Used it in 105 degrees w/o overheating. Aug 05, 2018

  • Love to use this bc it’s definitely cooler (I live in Florida) and easy to put on(no wrapping needed!) Perfect for walking around in the store when I have to push a shopping cart at the same time. Aug 03, 2018

  • Love the material it’s breathable but it was difficult for me to use my baby was not a fan of it Jul 11, 2018

  • Like the ktan for a diaper bag wrap-easier to wrap than a standard wrap and great for on the go. Material seems breathable as well. Jun 16, 2018

  • So easy and quick to use even more so than the structured carriers. At 8 months I am still enjoying this and very breathable in south heat. May 26, 2018

  • Easy to put on and comfy enough to cuddle on the couch. Baby loves it, even after 13 months. It is washable and fits in the diaper bag. The active material glides over clothes easier than the original Apr 27, 2018

  • Great for use with newborns, especially in summer! I love the UV protection, and uneven used it in the splash park while playing with my toddler! Feb 15, 2018

  • I liked this when baby was little. Good as a hip carrier/sling now that she's older, but she doesn't like it as a front carrier since it's more restrictive than a structured carrier. Very easy to use. Feb 05, 2018

  • Love the breathable mesh! Great for carrying baby outdoors, even in Houston! Dec 23, 2017

  • Mine doesn't look like this picture, but the Active version is a must for hot climates! Baby loves riding around in this thing! Oct 04, 2017

  • Much better material when you live in Florida Sep 16, 2017

  • I love the K'tans. The only thing I didn't like about this is that it's bigger than my normal K'tan so the baby doesn't sit as high up. I should have gotten a smaller size but we still make it work Aug 07, 2017
