Hey, I just wanted to answer your question and not get lost in the thread below. I love my K'tan. I get comments on it a lot when I wear it out and about. P is a big baby at five months (99th percentile) and I still hold him comfortably in it without hurting my back. That is the question I get asked the most when I have him in it. It does get hot in the heat though. I haven't tried the mesh one to know if that is any cooler though. I generally wear it indoors. The thing is that it stretches after about two or three wears. Which is fine with me because P likes to nom on it, so I would be washing it anyway. I can put it on and take it off my by myself in a matter of about a minute now that I have it down. P is so used to it that he looks for me to stick him in there sometimes. I saw somewhere online where someone made a tutorial on how to make your own. So if you can sew that might be an option for you that is less expensive. HTH!
