Four Position 360 Baby Carrier - Grey is rated 4.5088 out of 5 by 228.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating design I just got one for Christmas 2014. I do not normally write reviews but I hoping that this will help to fix this problem. I read the other reviews and I was hoping to overlook the Velcro because of all the other nice features. I do not mind it sticking to clothing or it waking my baby when I take it off. However, if you do not get the perfect fit rapping the Velcro the first time it is nearly impossible to tighten on your own (with the small buckle) and when you do it makes the fabric chunky/uncomfortable. It is a problem because the weight ends up on your shoulders and it becomes uncomfortable over time. I would love this back pack if it was not Velcro. I am very sad and do not know what carrier I will get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable-The only carrier you will ever need Hey Parents, I have almost every carrier known to man and I finally found and bought the one I should have bought first!It replaces my Moby Wrap, my Bjorn, my Mama's and Papa's and my Sling carrier. It is comfortable, allows me to wear my baby forward facing in a way that does't damage her precious hips and she can face in and go to sleep if we are out past her nap time.She never slept in any of the other carrier after she turned 8 months old but she sleeps like a newborn in the ERGO 360.My back isn't killing me after 3 hours even!All I have to say is this is the only carrier you will ever need to buy, don't waste your time or money on anything else.I'm so relived to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only carrier you need. As a longtime fan of Ergo, the new four position 360 is a great update on a classic product. I loved introducing my baby to the new front-outward position, enabling her to see the world in a whole new way while still safely tucked into the carrier. The structured seat is incredibly supportive, and switching positions from front-inward to front-outward (and vice versa) could not be easier - it's literally just a button on each side. And when in the front, hip or back carry, you'd never know this wasn't your favorite classic model. The four position 360 is also incredibly comfortable for me -- the wide velcro strap feels supportive and secure, and the shoulder straps are cozy and well-cushioned. With four options of carries to choose from, I can't imagine why I'd ever need another carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect do-it-all carrier I've been looking for the right carrier for 6 years. I even joined one of those cult-ish (weird!) baby-wearing groups and borrowed several different types of carriers. Now with my 3rd baby bean I've found it. She likes forward-facing (beware of joining a baby-wearing group if you have a child that likes to look out and see the world), the bjorn is a pain in the back. This isn't. It is absolutely perfect, except maybe for the velcro. Buckles are better, (I borrowed a regular ergo from a friend for a time and can attest) don't fix things that aren't broken, dear Ergo. Otherwise, bravo on making a forward-facing carrier that is comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All position solution carrier I've tried my share of carriers and slings. Ergo by far is my favorite but I'm torn between this one and the sport. We live in hawaii and the performance is awesome but as other reviewers have stated, the straps are stiff and scratchy if you don't have on sleeves. The 360 is great for the forward facing feature, head support, and seat adjustment. However, the Velcro hadn't won me over. It's so loud and once baby is on I find it annoying to try and adjust. I've kept both since my husband likes the fit of the performance and the fabric is great for the summer. I'm petite and the straps on the 360 are very comfortable. I spent a month visiting family and I wish I wouldn't have bothered lugging my stroller, the carrier was so much better and versatile for trips out. I loved the weather cover and the bib were great for our little teether

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the ability to carry facing out I bought this as an upgrade to the baby bjorn, for my baby who likes to face out. It is very comfortable; I appreciate the lumbar support. Baby seems to like it as well! I like that the seat for the baby can be adjusted (my baby didn't like the wider setting). The clip behind the back is hard to do/undo -- I wish that it were designed so that the straps attached in the front so you didn't have to reach behind your back. I have to loosen the straps to reach the clip, so each time I use the carrier I have to loosen and then tighten the straps. A clip on the lumbar panel would also be faster than velcro to put on. But it is worth it to have a carrier my baby likes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why the Velcro??!! We have the original which we used for 3 months. Than the 360 came out and we decided to "upgrade". We love that the front area is no longer super long which made it hard to sit for people with short torso like us. I'm 5'1" and my husband is 5'9". The 360 is great just like the original however we HATE the new velcro waist strap. It's loud when you take if off, sometimes it gets stuck in weird locations and can pull on certain clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Carrier I bought this carrier for my wife a month and a half ago thinking it would give her a new and easier way to carry our 4 month old daughter, but that I probably wouldn't use it much. Turns out, I might actually like it more than her. It's easy to use, easy to clean, comfortable, versatile - really, I couldn't ask for more. I can't wait for our daughter to be big enough to use the back position. We spent the extra money to get the 360 because of the outward facing position and it is totally worth it. Our daughter loves to see what's going on and even lend a (not-so) helping hand every now and then. If you're considering the Ergobaby 360, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs improvements I really like all the features 360 can do. However, for the price and coming from Ergo I expected a better design. As an example, if you child is facing forward, most likely she will touch the ergo fold part with her mouth, which will become all wet. So it would be nice if that part was removable to wash. Also the shade to place on the top of the child head could also be removable because it creates a volume when zip up. Another issue is that there is different buttons to change the setting of the seating position, however when you do it doesn't like and feel nice. The ergo became out of place looking like done incorrectly. I do love ergo carriers, but I thought that the 360 definitely need improvements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and comfortable I am very happy with this carrier. It is comfortable for the baby and for me. The outward facing option is great and my daughter loves it. A well made product, it is worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have multiple carriers, and this one is far superior. My little guy (actually not so little - 5 month, 18 lbs) is super comfortable facing both in and out - and I'm also very comfortable. I've worn my baby facing in for almost 2 hours on a hike, and had no back or shoulder issues. I have not had the same experience with other products... I would definitely recommend this carrier - wish I had it sooner! My only wishes: a pocket for cell phone, etc... and some teether pads to fit between the buttons...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from VELCRO AND NO POCKETS = NOT RECOMMENDED The velcro is too loud, so I can't "wear my baby down"-- i.e. get her to sleep then put her onto a bed. There's no way to transfer baby! The Velcro sound upsets her even when she's awake. A pocket is absolutely needed to carry keys, cell, and pacifier. Previous model had the perfect sized pocket. I can't go for a walk to get exercise with this model. I keep my old model for walks and for wearing baby down. I am annoyed because I paid so much for it, and yet these are two major problems, and really, I need both the old one and my new one for different purposes now. I do like how high the head support can now go, and of course, the forward facing ability is why I bought it, and that's how Ergo advertises the new-and-improved model, so those things are great, but expected. I'd love to hear from Ergo why they got rid of the pocket and why they thought velcro was better than a clip. Also, I'd love to see Ergo do something else besides a snap button for the head cover. The snap noise is really loud too. Often, I'm putting it on or taking it off when baby is asleep, and have to soothe her after I snap or unsnap the head cover.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design The Velcro waistband design is awful. It sticks to sweaters etc & is difficult to put on by yourself. I will go back to using my old design one since it's much better. The useful front pocket is also missing on the new design. Customer service at ergo is great & I hope that they fix the design because I love baby wearing with my old ergo

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My only problem….. I am such an Ergo fan. We got our 1st Ergo when my son (who is now 5) was born. It lasted up until very recently which speaks so highly to the quality and longevity of the carrier itself. It was completely a no-brainer for hubby and I to get a new one when baby #3 arrived and he was going to need it longer than our tried and true carrier was going to last. We immediately got excited to get the 360 with the outward facing option which we hadn't experienced before and were excited to give our new little guy a chance to experience. When we received our 360, we were thrilled. The ONE issue both hubby and I have is the stinking velcro! This does nothing to enhance an already amazing product. In fact, had I known what a pain in the butt the velcro would become, I actually wouldn't have purchased the 360 at all. For those who are wondering, the velcro is something you are forced to undo and reattach every use whereas on older carriers, it clipped so you could easily unclip it and leave it to fit you again in the future. The velcro is well made and holds strong but is very hard to adjust if you didn't get it quite right the first time you fastened it. I am so sad to write this review on anything negative but this one thing has really impacted our level of satisfaction with Ergo….

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this carrier! I bought this carrier maybe 6 months ago and I absolutely love it. My daughter hated facing towards me, she would always try to turn herself around so she could see what was going on and now she always faces forward so no more cranky baby! I do hate the velcro though not only does it stick to everything but I find that my shirt rides up and the velcro scratches my back. The buckle is so much easier to use and faster to get on. The other thing that I miss that my other ergo had is the zipper pocket on the front. It was so useful. But really this is a great carrier and I definitely would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best in the market! This carrier is not only cute, but also it is strong durable, versatile and really comfortable for a baby. It is worth every penny! I started using it with my newborn baby with a baby insert and then when baby was old enough, I started experimenting with the positions. My baby loves it.. as soon as she sees me putting it on, she smiles and laughs out of excitement. She loves the front view, and husband too. We do pretty much everything with this front pack. We have traveled in airports, been to the supermarket, run errands in the house, walk in nature and even breastfed with baby in it! I will wash it today or the first time and see how it goes. Thank you for making such great product! ♥

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WHY WHY Velcro??? LOVE the forward facing, but HATE the velcro and lack of zippered pocket. Come on, Ergo! Velcro wakes the baby that I put in the Ergo specifically to get to sleep!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great versatile carrier! I got to try one of these out recently and I was really impressed by all of the features! My guy is too big to face forward now (and I like the snuggles anyway) but we did try that way just to see how it worked. What I love about this one is that if your little one is going through a phase where they insist on seeing the world, you can do it with this...but you aren't stuck with something that you will need to size up with a few months later. You could use this for a small baby, because of the way the base cinches in, but it was also really comfortable with my 22lb 11mo old because of the structured waist and the cool "bucket" type seat. It would also be really comfortable for back carries too. Since I'm picky about my carriers, I also love that this has a hood and the nice fold-up headrest, so that it really does work for a wide range of sizes. If you're looking at that "other" carrier that you hear a lot about, I would urge you to try this one instead. It will last you a lot longer, and is far more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it really so comfortable for us both I loved it really very comfortable for us both. Pity no pockets, it really needs this and the shoulder straps don't go so well on small shoulders like mine. But I have sorted that out now. I wore it all day for a few days in a row with a huge 8 my old in it and no lover back pain. So I am over the moon. Still, needs a pocket. Even just one....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What I always wanted.. Not so much for baby. My baby loves to be in the front facing position because she loves to explore and is very curious. But she finds it very uncomfortable in between her legs. We prefer our soft, cozy, comfy organic ergo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trade in Your Stroller for an Ergo 360! I had the opportunity to try out the Ergobaby 360 recently, and I cannot say enough about how much we love this carrier! Quality construction, ease of use, fantastic ergonomic support for both Wearer (no more backaches and shoulder problems here!) and Baby, a cool design, portability (a huge plus for us!), and easy adjustments between multiple Wearers are our most favorite features. Add a sweet, content baby who falls asleep on-the-go? Win-Win! We are a family of World Travelers, and our Ergobaby 360 is the new #1 item on our family packing list. We don't leave home without it! Whether doing errands around home or on a day hike in the Alps, the Ergobaby 360 is our first choice for transporting our infant daughter. The beautiful part? We won't have to pause our activities with our older daughters for a midday nap, since Baby is so comfy sleeping in the Ergobaby carrier while we are out-and-about. Give it a try - we Guarantee you will love it as much as we do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Comfort I tried out the ErgoBaby 360 carrier and loved the comfort. My kiddo and I were both very comfortable and I could easily move around hands free. I love the grey and tan color!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would be perfect - if it wasn't for the VELCRO We bought the 360 and were thrilled by its many useful features. But the velcro made it totally useless. Like so many others have pointed out, it is a bad, bad design feature. It sticks. It makes adjusting difficult. It wakes the baby. Etc. How on earth could you go from the perfect waist band on the original - to VELCRO? It wasn't broken, so you shouldn't have "fixed" it. We returned the 360 and got the original instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, nice looking; annoying velcro closure I bought this for my second son as I continued to get backaches using our Bjorn and everyone raves about the Ergo. I like the styling and it is comfortable but the 360 has this HUGE velcro band that you use to close it vs. a clip. It literally scares my baby everytime I take it off. I imagine this was needed to support a forward facing baby but that doesn't make it any less annoying. It can be hard to get the velcro closure lined up so some of it is usually showing and getting caught on your clothes. That said, the forward facing is worth it to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baby loves it! I bought the Ergo two months ago and wear it constantly. I love so much about it that's it be faster to say what I don't like about it.... -The Velcro. It's winter and it's hard to put on without catching it on my sweater. I knew this going in it and it was not a deal breaker for me.... I just think I would have preferred buckles. However, I enjoy the ease of the Velcro. It's sort of love/hate relationship! If the Velcro is what you are on the fence about.... Buy it. It's too wonderful and it's such a small negative. And winter doesn't last forever!! -I wish it had a storage bag! I always throw it in my car when we are on the go but I wish it had a bag that attached to my diaper bag or something. OR an easy way to roll it up to keep it together. The straps are everywhere!! - I feel like it pins my baby's arms down but she doesn't complain about it so maybe it doesn't bother her? Those are the only negatives about it. Otherwise, I LOVE IT!!!! When baby is fussy, I put her in it and she calms down immediately. People at the store always laugh because she has a huge grin on her face the whole time and loves facing outward! I haven't tried hip or back carry, so I can't speculate on those. I wear it at home, friends houses, on the go, parties, you name it! I would suggest this to EVERYONE!!! I love the grey color! Don't forget to look for ergo promo code online. I paid $144 with free shipping and no tax! I have given 4 out of 5 (I would have done 4 1/2 if that was an option). Always room for improvement and I think should be Velcro optional and come with a sack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Construction, Though Hard to Use I am a new baby-wearing dad (he's 6 months old now), and I have experience with wraps (moby and home-made), the Infantino 3-way carrier, and the older regular Ergo. Here's what I think of this after having the Ergo for a couple months now. We wear baby A LOT. We have lots of work to do around the house, and my wife works from home. While baby is happy to play by himself for a time, he does get fussy. In the carrier, though, we can get 2-3 hours (between feedings) of uninterrupted work done. It is a game changer. PROS High Quality Components The construction is very high quality, it has had no trouble standing up to the rigor of parenting. If I were to make a bet on the first thing to fail, I would say that it would be a button, since they take the most stress during use (more on that in the cons). It is nice that the buttons aren't particularly structural, and if they did fail it wouldn't be catastrophic. The straps even come with attached elastic bands to manage excess length. The integrated shade cover is awesome, and also works if baby is overwhelmed by the environment (shade from chaos as well as UV). The Infantino, by comparison, is much more likely to fall apart under heavy use. Comfort This is by far the comfiest way to wear a baby that I have found (front or back). It feels very secure and sits well on my body as well as my wife's (even though our body types are very different). She has been able to breastfeed from the front-wearing back-facing position. It's great. Good Baby Posture The Infantino carrier didn't keep baby in good posture while front-facing (and was only passable rear-facing). The Ergo 360, however, keeps baby's legs at the right angle to the body for healthy posture. It's hard to describe, but while the baby was "hanging" from the Infantino, he is "riding" in the Ergo. Much better. SO/SO Buttoning/re-buttoning the leg pads to change between rear and front-facing is annoying. I understand why it is necessary, but clips would have been easier. Basically, you should be able to do any adjustments to your carrier one-handed, and while that is theoretically possible here, it's not easy. It also seems to be a perfect case for clips since you don't even need to change the length... Front-facing front-carry, baby can't hold her hands together or reach her face if her arms are under the arm-straps. If they are over the arm-straps, then it seems less safe for baby. The downside is that if you want to give baby something to play with or to interact with him while you are doing something (teaching is great!), he won't be able to get very hands-on with it. This isn't a deal breaker, but I do wish that the front were narrower somehow to allow baby more ability to grab things and/or put them in her mouth. CONS The Ergo360 is rough on people who aren't flexible - The safety strap clip is directly behind the carrier, so you have to reach all the way around yourself to clip it if you are front-wearing. It's VERY HARD when it's behind you. If you bought this carrier, you intend to use it front-wearing (or you wouldn't have bought the 360!), so this happens a lot. As a result, I forget to clip it and it becomes a trip-hazard. While you can also do it before baby goes into the carrier, it's easy to forget. - Same problem with the arm-strap connection clip, only this one *CAN'T* happen before baby is in the carrier. You need to somehow get to the clip in between your shoulder-blades while the baby is pulling down the carrier on your front. You can lay baby down on a bed to get some extra reach, but for those who are very inflexible, you will need to use a bed to rest baby on, let the strap out really far and clip it in front of you, then put your head through and tighten it. It's not awesome. - Same problem with the shoulder straps. You have to reach behind your armpit and grab the strap to tighten it. You can't do it cross-body because the angle is wrong and it won't tighten. - This is less a problem with baby on your back, but that is a trick all its own. The instructions use a balance, lean, and twist maneuver for getting baby on your back, but if you are a new mom who is still sore from birthing, this will be terrifying and perhaps impossible. Back carry is the best carry for getting work done, and if you can get baby used to it, you will be much more productive. We have found that using a bed is the only way to do a back carry without fear or falling. However, this isn't mentioned in the guide (IIRC), but it should be. It seems kind of tone-deaf to have a product that requires so much flexibility in a user that just had major physical hardship. The safety clip should have been on the side, and rethink the arm-strap clip location. Ultimately: it's easiest if you do it together, so if you can find a carrier-buddy to help get baby in and out, that works best. Other than that, the only negative is that it's expensive and Ergo doesn't do any kinds of coupons or rewards to help lower income people get access to (potentially) a life-saving tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall very good Great distribution of weight, barely feel any pain in my lower back. Breastfeeding is totally possible in this carrier, when baby isn't too focused on whats going on out there. Easy to take baby in an out. The velcro makes it a little harder to put on because you have to make sure it aligns. To front carry her is greay, but she gets a cloth burn on her chin because i guess she isnt tall enough yet, but meets the weight requirement. Its a little annoying to remember to change the buttons on the front if we decide to carry her a diff way. I do wish there was a pocket on it like the others and wish it came with a bag or folded into itself because its a little bulky to keep in the car for when we go out. Other than that its great, im glad i purchased this carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait!! We have been waiting for ERGObaby to make an ergonomic carrier that supported a front-outward facing baby. My daughter sits comfortably almost like she would if she were sitting in a swing so I do not worry about her hips. She loves being able to see the world. We can walk for an hour and my back doesn't feel strained. My only problem is that she doesn't sit quite high enough for her chin to always fit comfortably on the folded chin support. Definitely not a deal breaker though. Thank you for this fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I was going to purchase the original when I heard of the 360. I have the bjorn but it killed my back even when my son was still small so I knew I needed something different. Of course as soon as I decided on the 360 they sold out EVERYWHERE, but to me the forward facing option was a must have so I waited for it to return to stock. I must say, it was definitely well worth the wait! My son loves it and he really loves the forward facing option. I haven't mastered the side or back options but I can't wait to try them.
