The Fly Tai is a very adjustable and has a lot of great features. The Fly Tai is made from a Fidella Woven Wrap and has no plastic or metal accessories. The Fidella wrap used is very soft, passes glide easily, and is a good weight for year round wearing. The padded waist is very soft and completely flexible The Fly Tai has wide top straps to spread across your back for a comfortable and supported front carry. One great feature is that the waist strap and the top straps have different shapes so you can tell them apart when both knots are behind you. The waist straps are rounded and the arm straps are angled.
I found I needed to cinch the carrier almost all the way to use with my three month old so I think it would fit best for bigger babies and children. The wide woven wrap straps will allow the caregiver to preserve the ideal carrying position of support from knee to knee for a very long time so the average-sized child would be able be comfortably carried for a long time. I loved this carrier with my two year old and found it supportive and comfortable for us both. He even tucked his arms inside the carrier and took a nice nap - I am a big fan of any carrier that comes with sleepy dust!
