Best Carrier for Summer?

I have an ergo (I think it's canvas material), and a moby wrap. I like them both (both comfortable on me), but they both are extremely hot now that summer is arriving. What would you suggest for a good cool summer baby carrier?

My favorite go-to carrier for summer is a thin linen ring sling. They are easy on and off and I like to scoot my 7 mth old from a hip carry to back carry very easily.

I have an Elllaroo Mei Tei and that was great for the summer but tricky with a newborn.

Try the baby wearing forum and see what they suggest. FWIW, I preferred having a sling that didn't have preset fastenings - it's quicker and ultimately easier and more versatile to have ones you tie yourself.
