Best carrier for daddy?

I have a Moby wrap and Chinado (like Mei Tai) for myself, but I'm not sure how much my hubby is going to like tying those around himself. I'd like to get him a backpack style carrier. I can't help but think that most of them look so uncomfortable to wear though. What does your other half prefer?

My husband uses an Ergo. He was willing to try my ring sling when DD was a newborn, but now the Ergo is all he'll use.

My hubby and I share a Boba. We took turns at Dollywood (4 times this year) and it worked out great. Easy to adjust, too.

My husband self-selected a Moby when we first had DD because he loved keeping her close.

My DH prefers the boba also. He'll wear either kiddo in it.

DH uses the ring sling, boba, and the ergo. Just depends on the activity of the day.

When you refer to Boba and Moby, are you talking about the wraps or the carriers? DH hasn't shown aversion to the Moby wrap, but I'm worried it will be too warm for him since he gets hot easily. The carriers look a bit more breezy.

Boba is a carrier with buckles. Moby may have come out with carrier but most of the time people are talking about the wrap when they mention Moby. My dh hates wraps. He says it takes too long to put on and get it right.

My dh will use a ssc. He can carry our three year old, where I get too weighed down when I do.
