Really? Is there any strain on the neck? I would think that since there is no padding at all that long term wear would start to be a bit of an issue. I only ask because I have 2 vertebrae out of alignment in my neck and don't want to cause more issues.

Could you post up close pics of the carrier or of you wearing your 2 year old? I can't seem to find any online that are upclose.

I just wonder if it will be hot since nylon doesn't breathe.

That's what I wonder, too. We have some chunky kiddos and love Boba.

Re: New Boba Air?

I was under the impression that nylon breathes...hence the reason I use Dappi nylon covers.

Re: New Boba Air?

Nylon does not breathe. It can't wick away moisture and allow water/sweat to evaporate. That means the sweat stays between you, baby and the carrier.

I think I just talked myself out of buying this carrier unless some other mama that lives in a humid, hot climate says it works wonders to keep ya cool

I found this re: nylon

And I'm guessing they called it "air" for a reason...

IDK? I can't wait to hear the reviews from you mamas who have it on the way. Especially those that live in super humid climates

I think it would make a great back up carrier.

Re: New Boba Air?

I tried it on with my 2.75 year old today. First off I was surprised how it was just like an anorak rain coat. He insisted being on my front so we tried that. I will say the back clips were reeeeally digging into my shoulder blades but he is too big to be on the front. I was surprised how well it seemed to hold his weight. I do not think it would be comfortable for long periods of time though. There is just no padding. I am still torn. I could see where it would be a good diaper bag carrier but I don't know if I would be comfortable all day. The shape and design pretty close to the latest boba which I like.
