Boba Air Review & Giveaway

I have worked with Boba twice now in the past. I have done a review for their carrier and for the their wrap. When they released a new product the Boba Air I knew I wanted to try it out right away. 

The new Boba Air is a very lightweight Nylon material. It's so lightweight and thin that it folds inside itself and has a pocket to store it in. It stores up so small you can put it in the diaper bag your purse, or even leave it in your car. 

 Looks the same as any other structured carrier

 Still has the sleeping hood
You can see the zipper to the storage pouch here. It's the green line above the Boba Air tag.
 And even I was able to get it back inside it's pouch!
I haven't gotten any action shots of us using this yet, but I can tell you that it's totally amazing!!! This is perfect for summer because it's much lighter than a regular carrier. About 1/3 of the weight. 
This has been my go to carrier on these hot summer days. 

I have worn Emerson in this for hours at the zoo. I have worn this at the fair a couple weeks ago. I have worn it to the grocery store and today I wore it to Avery's Meet the Teacher day. This carrier is awesome!! I leave it in my car so it's always on the ready and I always have a carrier with me.

The best part is it's wipeable. Emerson is a sucker. He sucks on the straps of all carriers. With the regular carriers they don't wash up easily and shouldn't go in the washing machine too often, so I got the sucking pads, but it's just one more thing to deal with. With this I can bring it home, wipe it clean. Or even submerge it in a soapy water so all the  adjustable straps get clean too. 

All around though I love this carrier. 
I do wish it came in colors besides black and I also wish it had some mesh on it for those really hot days. To make it breathable would be great. 
Other than that, love it! It's lightweight, fits the same as a regular carrier and just feels great on. 

Price: This is the best part! It's just $65!!! The regular carriers are about $120!!

Overall: ***** love it and I'm so glad to have it in my collection. 

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Boba in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Boba for allowing me to review this product  and for offering a giveaway

Thanks for the giveaway! We can't afford one, but I would love to have something I can carry my daughter around in instead of having to lug out the stroller. She's a runner, so I have to always have her by me when we're out in crowds. Following on my pinterest: Samantha Herrmann
