I use a mei tai with wrap straps on a regular basis and LOVE it. I'm curious about the onbu though... Why do you like it? What are the benefits?

from what i understand an onbuhimo doesn't have a waist strap so all the weight is on your shoulder's because you make the the bottom tight by threading it through rings on the panel so a mei tai may be more comfortable because it distributes the weight more evenly to both your hips and your shoulder's
