I liked the color selection of the original, but it seemed as though it would be the hottest of the three styles. It's soft, comfortable, and obviously is loved by many baby wearers, but is a thick fabric. This attests to the quality of the wrap, but not the most comfortable to wear during the summer. It stretches as described, but just enough for mom and baby to be comfortable. I feel that as he grows, it will stretch more with his increasing weight, thus fitting us for a while. I had to go down a size on this style because his bottom was below my naval/hips.
The Breeeze was my least favorite of the three. There are very few colors to chose from, and half of the wrap is the same cotton blend as the original. The mesh section of the wrap reminds me of gym shorts; it only stretches a little, and feels a little scratchy against the skin. It would definitely make the wrap much cooler for baby or mom, but not both. This was true to size for me, but may be too small for others.
I ended up liking the Active the best because it felt as though it would be the coolest during the summer heat. I do NOT like the color selection, but I do like the UV protection and the fact that the fabric wicks moisture (not tested, but assuming due to the item description). I put my hand in the fabric of each of these wraps, and this seemed just as cool as the Breeze, but for both mom and baby. This wrap seemed to stretch the most of the three. I have to go down a size with this one, but I do think it is the best option for us (despite the stinkin' color choices).
Previously used a Moby, but too hot and too complicated to get any in and out so I just didn't walk until they were big enough for a stroller or my Osprey Poco Plus. I didn't know what I was missing.
If you tense your shoulders then, yes, it will make you sore. Took me about a week of daily walks to learn to drop my shoulders and let the carrier do it's job. Since then I haven't been sore at all. So easy I can use it for a quick house cleanup when baby is fussy and comfortable enough to wear for a 2 mile walk while pushing a double stroller and walking a large dog on a hands free leash.
Got the coral and love the color. Accurate to the pictures. Plenty of color saturation without being obnoxiously bright.
I WISH I'd had this for my other kids (I now have 3). I am thrilled I decided to try this one.
For sizing: I am 5'4" and pre-pregnancy I weighed 140, now at 2 months post-partum I'm at just over 150. I got a Small and it's perfect!
Seemed a little tight at first but after second wearing it stretched a little or I got better at getting us set up. I've been using it for a month and I use it at least 4 days a week.
I live in FL so it is very hot. I have tried the Boba wrap, this and the Baby Bjorn. This is the winner in heat and compact ability. It is also the easiest to get on and off and wash.
My baby girl loves being in it too. Especially if she isn’t feeling well. Then she is on her mom while I walk around and do things or dance with her depending on her mood. She also takes great naps in it letting me be hands free to work (I work from home). Normally I can put her down to sleep, but due to acid reflux, she doesn’t always take good naps. This wrap helps me help her get more sleep during the day when her reflux if acting up.
Overall, I would recommend this one over the others especially in hot weather. As soon as I get the legs out figured out (instead of having her legs in like a frog, I’m sure I’ll like it more. Currently when I have her legs out, the wrap feels too tight between her legs and on me and she does not feel secure.
I think to get the full benefit of this kind of carrier it is important to do the following things:
- Get the right size. I am about a size 12 with 36D chest and the size Small surprisingly is the best fit for me. The baby will sag if you get your actual t-shirt size.
- Watch the official K'tan video and Youtube videos on how to use this properly and check for fit.
- Practice with a toy baby or teddy bear first, so you don't feel rushed or fragile about your baby's moving body.
- Take it slow when you use it the first few times. Take the time to spread out the fabric all around you just as you would smooth out your t-shirt or dress before going in public. Give the connecting loop in the back a good tug to center the whole thing.
- Once your baby is secure, try gently bouncing on a yoga ball for a few minutes and watch your babe peacefully fall asleep!

I've found lot of sling and had one but is so uncomfortable to wrap specially for me now...I'm going on holiday by plane and was looking for something more wearable and confy for both.
I just opened now the package and tryed it. Soooooooo nice. Beautiful color and exactly my size!
I will recomand this K'tan to my mums group
This is excellent at keeping both of us cool in the sun and is much tighter than the standard one which means I don't have to keeping pulling down the cross at the back or redoing the separate band every 10 minutes.
Excellent product and highly recommended from a babywearing Dad!
Este portabebé sirve bien para un rato, pero si piensas caminar mucho (más de una hora) yo consideraría otras opciones (me encanta el Lillebaby Complete), Baby K'tan ya por mucho tiempo caminando me empieza a doler la espalda.
