The Soul Slings Travelling carrier has been sent travelling by the lovely Carrisa at Koala Slings. I have had the carrier for a few weeks and i have to say i really love it even more than the buckled carrier i tried. Off the shelf Mei Tai retailers are becoming few and far between. Retailing at £63 the Soul Tai is very reasonably priced.
What i thought?
I had forgotten how amazing Mei Tais are, they fit so well and can be adjusted to put in more or less support as needed. I like to wear mine on my back, tied tiebetan. It makes for a super weightless carry and in terms of longevity a wrap tai type of Mei Tai, like the Soul Tai, could effectively last until 4 or 5 years old.
It was just as comfortable on my front, the width of the straps able to support the carrier further for a weightier child or give security to a small infant and warmth in times of colder weather.
What i didn’t like?
There wasn’t anything i didn’t like about this Mei Tai, comfortable on front or back, i liked the look and feel of the carrier, made from 100% cotton so very breathable and easy to look after in terms on washing and drying.
Would i recommend?
Bottom line, yes. There will be folk who don’t get on with Mei Tai’s but stick with them, they are functional and very comfortable. Once again with this carrier i got asked about it regularly, so clearly others liked it also.
