Product name: Beanslings
Brief description of product: Mei tai carrier with padded waist and wide, lightly padded straps. Detachable hood.
Store/Site of purchase: thebabywearer.com FSOT
Price: $125 including shipping (a little more than many of them go for, I believe, as this included the cost of expensive Marimekko fabric)
How long have you used this product? 2 weeks
Fit/Sizing: medium-boded carrier with long straps. It should fit from the newborn through young toddler stages (I'd say, up to about 25 pounds maybe, and 32" or so). For the wearer, should fit nearly any size, from petite through plus-size due to the generous shoulder straps. The shoulder straps are wide, which may scare away some petite moms. However, they can be folded over in a back carry, and they are so moldable that they don't look big even on me (I'm small).
Performance: Awesome. Just awesome. Really sturdy, well-made, comfy. The wide straps really spread the weight out and make it great for long wearing. I love that the hood is detachable for when I don't need it. The curved headrest provides great support for my baby while still allowing her to have her arms out so she doesn't feel squished.
Customer Service/Communication: n/a as I bought used.
Would you purchase this product again? Absolutely, and I am already!

Additional Comments: I think this is one of the best mei tais out there for the money, especially for older babies. It is as supportive and well-made as many of the very expensive ones available (of which I have tried quite a few) at half the price or less.
I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?):
