Review: Easy Feel Products SSC

Easy Feel Products is a company out of Gurgaon, India that I was introduced to through Tandem Trouble!  During my time as an ambassador for the brand, I’ve had a great amount of time to use this carrier and it turns out that I like the carrier a lot! Even after my ambassadorship is over, I will be using this carrier. Now onto the review!

I first received this carrier in the Terrracotta colorway in February when Minerva was eight months old and she was just big enough to fit it comfortably! Then it was super easy to carry her comfortably. As she’s grown, she has continued to feel weightless in this carrier. She is currently 20 lbs and about 29 inches long.

The padding in this carrier is phenomenal! It is firm and molds to my shoulders. The  position of the shoulder strap adjuster makes this extremely easy to adjust in front and back carriers which is part of why I like this carrier so much. This carrier also has perfect fit adjusters (PFAs) which help the carrier fit more snug and also makes nursing in the carrier easy for me.

Minerva could ride arms in and out in this carrier. This carrier does not allow you to cross straps or hip carry.  The weight  range is 15-45 lbs (7-20 kg) and it comes in a wide variety of  beautiful designs. It is made of 100% handwoven heavy bottom-weight cotton Ikat which is very light weight yet very sturdy and comfortable. It is excellent in warm weather. It is also easily machine washable.  I recommend this carrier to wearers of all skill level.

Review: Soul Onbuhimo

 

Soul is a wonderful company based in Bangalore, India that has taken the world by storm! They offer so many various carrier styles. From slings to buckles–they’ve got it all! They even have some pretty sweet accessories to match their carriers. I first came across them on Instagram a couple years ago and since then I’ve been watching them explode! Recently I was sent a Maze Blues Jacquard Onbuhimo to try out.

Since Minerva is my main wearee, I tested this out mostly with her. I did wear this some with Maxine (40 lbs) and she fit in it well! Minerva is about 20 lbs and 28 inches tall.  She was juuuust big enough to fit well in the carrier. With onbuhimos, all the weight is carried in your shoulders, so one of the most important aspects of the carrier for me  is the padding. Soul hit it out the park with this padding. I have tried a few other brands of buckle onbuhimo and this one had the squishiest padding. It reminded me of memory foam. The padding is thicker than in their buckle carriers which is a good thing.

The Soul onbuhimo has perfect fit adjusters (PFAs ) which help get  the carrier to fit better. With Max, I preferred them all the way out. With Min, I liked them all the way in. The chest clip can be moved up and down to get to a comfortable spot as well. Everything on this is easy to adjust . The Soul onbuhimo fit great in my diaper bag and since there is so little fabric, it is pretty ideal for warmer weather as well. I got to wear it in 90 degree Virginia heat–it was not that bad!

Onbuhimos are recommended for wearees who have sufficient torso control to support their heads and sit up independently. I found that the carrier fit me pretty well. I am plus sized, so that is pretty important for me. It fit me with Maxine  with plenty of webbing to spare and made me very happy!
