Quite honestly, your dh may have problems with just about any soft structured carrier -- I think the BabyHawk is a better bet for him in terms of potential fit, but it's not guaranteed. You'll just have to try it and see -- a lot of really big guys have better luck with non-structured two-shouldered carriers such as mei tais.

I was undecided between the same carriers as you are but the deciding factor for me was that I don't like how the the Beco has that piece in between mom and baby. I nurse all the time in my carriers and I didn't think that would be comfortable.
The Oh Snap crosses in the back, and I like that fit a lot.
I would second the suggestion to consider a Mei Tai too. They fit a variety of body types easily.
