The K'tan active is a very convenient product that I’ve been using almost every day since purchase. I find the K’tan easier and much quicker to use than the ordinary wrap for my 2-months-old that wants to be carried around all the time. I don’t need to re-tie it each time and don’t get tangled in the meters of fabric like I did with the other wrap. I’m able to wear it all day and slip the baby in and out quickly as needed. Big help in keeping my hands free and good for my back as baby's weight is evenly spread. Helps baby go to sleep, and I can even exercise at the same time. Furthermore, my husband is able to wear it as well whereas he couldn’t master an ordinary wrap. The Active K’tan is much cooler than the cotton wrap, so we don't get as hot and sweaty especially with the spring coming to New Zealand where we live. I also love the bright blue colour. It’s great how the sash transforms into a bag, easier to fold away than other wraps.

I live in Texas so I needed a carrier that would not overheat myself or baby. This carrier has delivered that and protects from the overbearing sun. Baby does not feel hot to the touch or sweat in the carrier (except where her head lays on my chest which is to be expected). My only issue is the sizing. I have other K'tans in different sizes so I've had an issue finding a size that is complete for our needs. I ordered the Medium and baby is secure where she needs to be without being too tight on us. The issue is nursing is not possible due to the inability to position baby securely in the wrap and still nurse. I have the Breeze in a Large and nursing is much easier, but general wearing I do not feel that baby remains in a proper position. I plan to order a Large Active and Medium Breeze and try those sizes to see if the fabric makes a difference in the fit and nursing ability. I wear a size 14 pre-pregnancy, but my weight distribution is even throughout my body. My chest is larger, but baby fits securely to my chest without being pushed too far out. I would recommend the Breeze for hot, sunny places.

I never used a carrier with my first child because I couldn't figure out the large wraps and the buckle-style carriers were uncomfortable and bulky. I was due with my second child and wanted to explore my options for a carrier when I stumbled upon the Baby K'Tan. WOW! This offers a wrap-like carrier that's EASY to use and fits right in the diaper bag so I can easily carry it whenever I need. Since it's a fitted style, the carrier doesn't loosen while you're wearing it meaning you're not constantly re-tying a wrap or readjusting. My son is nice and snug and I don't worry that he's going to fall out. I ordered a Medium and had to return for a Small and the return process was incredibly easy. The customer service at Baby K'Tan is phenomenal.
My son is now almost a year old and he still loves the carrier. It's great for infant use and beyond adding to the value of the product. I highly recommend the Baby K'Tan to all my friends! I ordered the Active in black.

I live on the mid Atlantic coastline where summer months are unbearably humid, and I wanted to get my baby out and about (she was born at the end of May) but the carrier I got for my shower has a bunch of buckles and straps and was okay, but my daughter was always sooo sweaty when I took her out, and later I also learned that it was unsafe positioning. The active k'tan is extremely breathable and comfortable for the both of us. I feel better knowing she is safely positioned. It takes a few tries to get used to (like anything else), but once you get the hang of it, it is almost just like popping out a stroller.

My baby and I have been using the original k'tan for months and love it! It's so easy to get on and off! Being able to use one carrier for multiple positions is fantastic! I decided to get the active version so that we would have something that wasn't quite as hot for the summer time. The fabric is so light and breathable!

I love the material of this active K'tan. I live in swampy humid Georgia and my Boba wrap was getting both of us overheated and super sweaty. I miss the stretchiness of my Boba b/c the active K'tan is not as stretchy, but it kept us both cool and dry. I recommend this for summer months.

I got this for my 3rd child after previously using the regular black one. This is much more comfortable during the summer and just around the house. Super easy to use especially when I go out. I can put it on before I load the kids in the car and quickly put him in and run my errands. And I love the color.

I was given another wrap as a gift and found it incredibly difficult to maneuver and to get my baby in correctly. A friend pointed me to the baby k'tan and I have been so pleased. Having the k'tan fit to size makes a great fit from the start and easy to get baby into the different positions. I particularly like the mesh fabric so that baby doesn't get so hot now that the weather is getting warmer. I use it a the time! Highly recommend this product!

I ordered this as I have recently had my first baby and needed an alternative to holding her all the time. I had a Moby but it was too much fabric! I love the K'tan....it's easy to use and my little girl doesn't seem to sweaty. I recommend the cradle hold for new babies :)
