Find-ability: Ahoi is a limited release that was sold out everywhere and is very difficult to find
Kokadi Ahoi is one of the wraps everyone talks about and just has to have. It has a huge following, and the print has been very popular since its release in 2012. Anything with a sea-faring theme seems to be the big thing lately. Imagine my surprise when I had the chance to wrap with Ahoi!
Pros: I have had a couple cotton Kokadi wraps by now: Firescales and Love In Your Heart. Each of them has had the same medium thinness, with a nice plush feel on top of my shoulders. It holds BabyT’s 20 pounds gracefully. I have come to really love the Kokadi for this reason: constancy. Each wrap, though some more or less broken in, has the same supportive weave, squishy thinness and is soft to the touch.
The pattern on the Ahoi wrap makes for a really cool look when wrapped. I love how the lines and pattern mix-and-match in across BabyT’s back, especially in a back wrap cross carry (BWCC). There aren’t many patterns like this that I truly find to be “pretty” or “neat,” as my personal preference is for wraps that just have the weaving pattern. The Ahoi is different though. I like it’s subtle patriotism, and the colors and pattern mesh beautifully.
Cons: Trying to find this wrap for sale is another one just like Kokadi Love In Your Heart– next to impossible. The frustration in attempting to find one, coupled with the inflation on a hard to find (HTF) wrap is enough to drive someone batty. Again, this is not a blemish in the functionality or wrapability of the Ahoi, but something worth being mentioned.
The Wrap Up…
I am beyond thankful that I was ever even able to get my hands on Ahoi! What hard to find (HTF) wraps or carriers do you have, or have you been in search
