Woven RS Recs?

I'm interested in purchasing a woven RS for the new baby. I hated my Moby with DS and it looks like a woven ring sling would give me a great combo of breathability, support, and ease of use for when we're out. I'm just not sure what the best brands are for this, could anyone give me some recommendations?

Re: Woven RS Recs?

For easy to find and inexpensive, you can't beat a Maya--a used Maya can be as little as $30. (Just make sure that you get the lightly-padded shoulder--the old-style shoulders can be annoying to use.)

However, I LOVE LOVE my Sleeping Baby slingified wrap. She sells several types (BBSlens and Easycares are the two I can think of) but you can also find a shortie of a wrap that you like and send it to her to turn it into a ring sling. That ends up being a bit on the $$ side, but not much more than you'd pay for a NIP Maya. I have a Girasol Fresh Grapes that is DD's legacy sling, and I'm going to be having her do another Girasol for this next babe so that #2 has a legacy sling as well.

Storch and BBSlen also sell slingified versions of their wraps with their own styles of shoulders.
