Can anyone recommend a good baby carrier - not too expensive?

We are going to Wales and want to carry our DS (2 stone at 14 months so fairly large) on our backs since the buggy won't be suitable. Ideally it needs to be waterproof and comfortable for us and him.

Does anyone have any recommendations. We need to be able to buy it quickly, too

You might also find this useful to take along as well. Not great for a long day out hiking but really light and easy to use if you are taking a short trip out or just getting in and oput of the car for short trips. Ds 18 months rides in this all the time and it is really comfortable.

We got a Vango one from a camping shop (Imp? Elf? Goblin? Something like that anyway!) which was substantially cheaper than many we'd seen in the parenting catalogues (about £60 incl sun and rain cover). It was good and we used it until about 2.5, although I guess that some of the more expensive ones would be more comfortable if you're going to be walking all day, every day.

We've got a vango swing, I bought it second hand on e-bay but its in really good condition and i would recommend it. There are loads on e-bay.

Thanks everyone - went out a got a Macpac Possum after reading the reviews. DS seems to like it and it's great becaues its comfortable for DH to use (I'm not going to be the one carrying DS!)

Let's hope we get lost of use out of it as it was certainly not cheap once you have bought all the accessories to go with it.
