The adjusting is fool-proof (basically non-existent), just as I like it in such carriers; however, in this particular one I lack the possibility to cross the shoulder straps. Well, nobody’s perfect (but of course, you can have your carrier sewn with the buckles that enable it). 😉 Unfortunately, this property decides whether a carrier is comfortable for me (yes, I repeat it everytime, I am a strange, stubborn carrier cross-head) and despite the thick shoulder strap padding, I did not feel like carrying my 10kg-weighing daughter for longer trips. However, speaking from experience from most of the “normal” wearers from our local group, MoniLu is generally considered to be one of the most comfortable carriers when speaking about the shoulders straps. The waist belt is very comfortable for me, being ideally tough without tendency to bend, it spreads the weight of the wearie ideally.
