I beleive you are talking about the Pea in a Pod pouch, correct?
While hemp is a natural fiber, and therefore more breathable than polyester fleece, I'm still not sure you're going to want that for a hot Texas summer.
My DD was born in July, in Boston, and we had a heat wave that August. I used my Maya Wrap cotton pouch and it was perfect. Very breathable and lightweight.
Honestly, I would recommend one of those. In the winter, I simply wore her in that under XL sweaters and I would wear DH's raincoat and I could keep her warm and dry.
I am, however, going to get a fleece pouch for my October baby on the way. I haven't decided yet on a Pea in a Pod or the KKAFP (see my thread here on that subject! - ugh, tough decisions!!!).
If you can afford it, get both. Or, get the cotton Maya Pouch and you can probably sell it when winter comes.
