How about an Action baby Carrier? It is a lightweight SSC so it is cooler and more comfy compared to bulky ones. My DD and DH was also a sweaty, but DH can still wear DD for a long time in this carrier and DD loves being in this. It only cost $98 (standard size- Weight limit-15-40lbs), $114(toddler size-Weight limit 15-45lbs.). By the way, I'm 5'2, DH is 5'9 and we both can use our ABC. Hope this helps.Goodluck!!

I heard the boba air has very little padding. That is the only thing i'd be concerned about.

dechaoui ErgoBaby Performance carrier has been good to us in the hot and humid DC weather. My daughter is also a big baby. I would put an ice pack in the front pouch (where the hood is stored), carry an umbrella for shade, and periodically dampen her legs with a water bottle.

DD was a winter baby (Nov 13) but she's super hot blooded all the time so when summer hit and she was 7/8 mos and 20 + lbs and not walking, I carried her everywhere in my ring sling with no issue.  I've got a single and double layer linen, neither of them were too hot here in CT or even while visiting my sister in SC.

I am due on August 4th. I run hot so even when it cools down, I need something light weight as well.  ESP also runs warm so I found most of the slings too hot for the two of us. Back then, HotSlings made a soft mesh fabric sling that was perfect for us. The photo is from a trip to Hershey Park in July. I can't find the mesh Hotsling anymore but ....

 

 

 

 

There are more choices now.

This list some light weight slings.  I am considering the TaylorMade Water Sling

which can be used out of the water up to 35lbs

If you don't mind me asking, how tall are you? I am 5'1 and I am worried it may be too long on me.

I am just wondering what would be the best SSC for hot weather?

I live in Santa Fe, NM so although it is mild until end of May/beginning of June I am having a baby in the end of April/May sometime. I've been EDD for this baby is May 7th. I have a Maya ring sling for the beginning few weeks. My firstborn son was a hot box. Like, sweaty from a few weeks to now. He is almost four and still sweats even at winter in bed. So, if little brother is anything like big brother I would like to have a cool SSC for the summer. My goal is to spend $200.00 or less for a SSC. 

Also, this baby will be around 7 lbs due to his big brother being just under 7 lbs, and 19.5 inches long. My firstborn also tended to fatten up really fast before 4 months breaking 16 lbs and at 6 months 22 lbs.
