I bought this for my husband for his 1st Father’s Day and he loves it! I looked at other tactical baby carriers and I would say this is by far the best quality and great looking carrier. Comfortable for our son as well. Convenient to have, rather than taking the stroller out all the time. My husband says the back of the carrier somewhat gives him back support and is very comfortable. The only thing we prefer is having the leg straps flexible or stretchy to be able to use. It’s a bit short and not stretchy, so it makes it hard to place it on the button hook and if we do place it on its hook, the leg opening is too small and tight for our 3 month baby. So we have no use for it, but the carrier still works perfectly without it!
We received two competitor-brand baby carriers as gifts, one hand-me-down and one new. The hand-me-down was bulky and made my husband sweat. The newer model was less bulky, but still warm to wear. After wearing, my daughter's face and hair would be wet from my husband's sweat. I purchased this carrier for him (before we knew we'd be getting the newer competitor carrier from a friend), and he prefers it over all of our carrier options. It's the thinnest of them all and not bulky. My husband especially loves that there's fabric between our daughter and his chest, unlike any of our other carriers. Having something between him and her keeps him cool and keeps her dry from his sweat!
We are still waiting for baby to arrive; however, we are very impressed with the quality, sturdiness, and apparent ease of use. This seems pretty user friendly.
