  • useful for transporting baby outside of a stroller. I don’t love putting it on. Jan 19, 2020

  • Slightly cooler than the original ergo carrier, but not much. Do like that it has mesh to help baby’s body breath a little better. Jan 01, 2020

  • So nice to use this and be hands free, very supportive and easy to use by yourself! Also great for my husband when he wanted to carry our son and bond! This was the only way to calm my son down. Nov 28, 2019

  • Most comfortable of all carriers, I could wear it all day. I used it mostly w/ infant insert when baby was smaller. Now he prefers to face out but I’ve lent to a friend (who loves it!) until baby #2 Nov 23, 2019

  • Liked it but didnt feel like it allowed for my son's legs to really have some freedom. I felt he was pinched a bit. He is also a big kid, so I have to believe that is also to blame. Nov 02, 2019

  • I recieved this as a hand me down and liked it but not for long wearing. My lillebaby is better for extended hours of wearing as it has a pad for lower back Oct 30, 2019

  • Baby is nice and secure but it's bulky and gets hot. I'm petite so it feels too big on me. I do love the pockets and the sunshade /privacy panel. I hate that I can't forward-face baby in it. Oct 21, 2019

  • I have this and gave it to gramma as her primary carrier. The pockets are roomy and the carrier is low profile. She uses it for hiking and everyday use. The downside is no lumbar support. Sep 19, 2019

    Wish I had gotten one where baby can face forward. This always leaves me and baby sweaty and there are so many straps hanging down all over the place. Sep 13, 2019

    Cant wait to use it on my baby when theyre older. Doesnt like newborn insert but i like its design Jul 06, 2019

    Love but wish it had forward out facing option like the 360. Otherwise comfortable & easy to use & clean. Relatively cool on hot summer days. Jun 21, 2019

  • I Bought this specifically because either I or the baby get sweaty when baby wearing. I like the mesh to keep everyone cool. Apr 28, 2019

  • I love this for summer hikes. The air flow is nice but you don’t lose any support compared to the original ergo. Mar 07, 2019

  • This was a miss for us. You can’t have your child facing forward, which I wish we had known. He also never really liked being in it. I know some people swear by these, but just didn’t work for us. Feb 13, 2019

  • Easy to get on when alone. Baby seems very cozy and comfortable. I am a plus size woman and this has plenty of wiggle room with adjustable waist band! Feb 06, 2019

  • This carrier is amazing! The ease of wearing it is great and I know she’s sitting correctly. I use the hood all the time to reflect the sun as we live in NC and it works well. Aug 07, 2018

  • I did NOT like this carrier. While its easy to use, the mesh part on the shoulders is so irritating to the skin. You also can only wear it forward facing towards you as far as I know. Not worth it. Jul 02, 2018

  • This is much better than the original ERGO that we also have. It is lighter so both parent and baby don't sweat, yet still warm and comfortable. Jun 26, 2018

  • Used this carrier a lot when my baby was little. Super comfortable for me and him. No complaints! Jun 15, 2018

  • Lightweight and cooler option that the original. I never used the hip carry, seemed too finicky. I don't wear much anymore(30lb, 3 yo) but I'm hanging on to this in case of zombies May 03, 2018

  • Comfortable carrier for both wearer and baby. Fabric dries quickly and tends to be slightly cooler than some of the other options. Front pockets surprisingly large to pack snacks or extra diapers, etc Apr 20, 2018

  • This was a favorite of my husbands and use it for light hiking and walks. Mar 26, 2018

    Initially I hated this, I hated the straps and how it sit. After finding the right adjustments for me and giving it some time, we worn it out. Secure, comfortable, and a must have for any busy mom. Mar 01, 2018

  • It's a sturdy carrier, but being small framed I could never get it to feel comfortable. Feb 11, 2018

  • I really like this carrier is super comfortable and great for when my baby was little. Now she likes to face out so we had to get a different carrier. Jan 24, 2018

    I prefer the regular Ergo to this one, but my husband prefers this one. He says it is cooler (also, more masculine). We like the pockets for the hood and other items. Definitely useful. Jan 23, 2018

  • I love the ergobaby carriers, I have had serveral, but this one isn't very comfortable for me. The mesh on the shoulders is very painful after a while when you have on a tank top. Jan 22, 2018

  • Had high hopes but this came up short. I don't know one baby who wants to face inward after a couple of months. The cool mesh doesn't keep anyone cool. Go with the 360! Jan 19, 2018

  • We love the ERGO performance backpack! It's much more breathable than the original (good for summer and better for water) and provides better neck support for the baby. Dec 20, 2017

    Not as breathable as they say. The original is much more comfortable. Next time I might buy the 360 carrier. Nov 22, 2017

  • Awesome product for travel and lightweight. Used for a trip to SE ASIA during super hot conditions with our then 15 month old. Only complaint is seat is not quite as wide as our organic ergo. Oct 19, 2017
