Performance Baby Carrier - Charcoal Black is rated 4.6364 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first try! I bought this one since the summers in GA get extremely hot. It's so comfortable, I use it for everything, vacuuming, grocery shopping, running errands. I think I find excuses just to use it. I have a very bad back and after carrying him for a while my back hurts, after several hours of using it I don't feel any pain. This product was life changing for me, I had a baby bjorn before and after one day I never used it again, both baby and I were uncomfortable and my back was killing me. I recommend this for any parent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great carrier especially for hotter climates We bought this Ergo Sport about two months ago and I don't go anywhere without it. It stays in my car. Living in Hawaii we had an older version of the Organic Ergo and then decided to upgrade to the Sport for the reviews on the mesh, hood, and overall fit. the Sport is great even my husband wears the baby to the store. i have noticed that both me and my infant are cooler and don't sweat as much. Its great for at the grocery store so I don't have to lug around the carseat, push a stroller, and I still have use of both my hands. The chest strap (I use in the back) makes me confident that when I bend over to grab something the straps will not fall off and my infant is secure. The curved straps make it more comfortable to wear for a longer period of time and its great on my shoulders for support but it does make feeding while carrying a bit more difficult.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design save your money We bought this with high expectations, however the first time my husband put it on he immediately disliked it. It is impossible to put on or adjust one handed. All the adjustment straps and claspes are located behind your back and very difficult to adjust. Next to impossible for my husband whose shoulder was injured while in the military. If you have limited flexibility don't bother. Another discouraging thing was the fact that our baby girl found it to be uncomfortable. First time she ever fussed in a baby carrier. While the wider straps are nice and it seems more comfortable the adjustments and placements of straps really make the product subpar. Save your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't live without my Ergo! Bought my Performance Ergo when my son was a year old. Three years later, I am now using it with my daughter. It is great for traveling and going around town. I carried my 22-lb son in the Ergo up and down San Francisco hills and it never hurt my back. We have taken it to Costa Rica, Mexico, and the Dominican and it's never gotten too hot. I live in Texas and use it in lieu of a stroller all year round. It's absolutely perfect. My kids love it as do I. I love it so much it's my go-to gift for friends and family having their first baby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Carrier For Cool Or Warm Weather This carrier is wonderful! All my friends had been telling me for awhile to buy a carrier and they specifically named Ergo. I finally bought one about 1.5 months ago when my little one (baby #3) was 6 months. I wish I had bought one sooner! I feel extremely connected with my baby and my little one loves the closeness. My babies tend to run on the warmer side so the Performance Ergo was the perfect choice for us. My baby has been snuggly warm all bundled up in the cold weather and when we had the warm snap that hit 80 degress, my baby was still comfy thanks to the cooler design of this carrier. I've taken many long walks and haven't even noticed the additional weight from carrying my little bundle of joy. The shoulder straps are very comfortable for me and I am 5' 9". I have also breastfed my baby in this carrier with great ease. Thank you Ergo for creating such a wonderful product for both parents and their little ones!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I Asked for this as a baby present for my second child since my 1st daughter did not like my other 2 carriers and I wanted something that was fast and easy to put on. I have been using it since my second was 1 month old and she loves it. We go for walks everyday, use it grocery shopping, at the park, in the back yard and I will be using it all this upcoming weekend when we are camping. I am still using the infant insert since she is only 2 months but I am sure she will still love it when she gets bigger :) . I love having both hands free so I can chase after my 2 year old!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite We are a baby wearing family. We do not even own a stroller. I own/tried 4 different kinds of carriers. I had to use our other carriers when my baby was 4-5 months and younger, because we really did not like the infant insert, but once she could fit into her Ergobaby Performance sans insert, we hadn't used any other carrier since. She is 1 years old now, and we still use it every time we leave the house. Anyone that asks us about our carrier, I sing praises on it. We love it very very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WE LOVE OUR PERFORMANCE CARRIER! It took Simon a few months to be ready for this carrier, but once he hit 6 months, he loved it! He's a huge baby and it's hard to carry him around, but with this carrier it's a breeze. It somehow distributes all his weight on my hips, so it feels almost like nothing! I like the clean simple design and that it's very gender neutral so my hubby wears it all the time too! Huge fans of all things ergobaby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for mom AND dad We bought the ergobaby performance carrier while still being pregnant in early 2014. Dad wanted a carrier that could fit him and that we could use for easy hiking and daily life as well as one that would be easy to put on/off. So far, baby is 3 1/2 months old and still using the infant insert with success. Baby loves being close to mom and dad in the carrier. So far, Mom recommends it: good quality product and surprisingly it follows us particularly during shopping instead of carrying the infant car seat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this backpack in lieu of a bulky, hiking backpack. I love that I can use it daily for basic chores: watering garden, grocery shopping, food prep, vacuuming, etc. A friend recommended it & after trying it out, I was so thankful I'd opted for the versatility & ease of this pack. Additionally, my baby loves it! She laughs aloud every time I move her from my side to my back. The front-back-side options are nice; however they can seem overwhelming at first. Once you determine the position that works best for both parent & child, it becomes a breeze to utilize. I have scoliosis & it is very comfortable to wear. The biggest downfall for us is while hiking or being outside in the heat. The body-to-body contact makes sweating inevitable. Yet, it is nice to feel my little one resting her head on my back. I am thankful, daily, for this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for small people with small babies! I absolutely love my ergo, with my 18 month old. I am a very petite person (4'11" and 95lbs) and both of my babies are in the 1st percentile. I purchased this carrier when my now 18 month old was 6 months old, and I've used it with her ever since! I also have a 4 month old, and I usually wrap her and tandem. I was out and about and I didn't have the wrap with me so I tried to use the ergo with my 4 month old. Although she is big enough and I can position her correctly, I can't get the straps tight enough to feel secure! I have the shoulder and chest straps as tight as they can be and I can still lift the shoulder straps a good 3-4" off of my shoulders! I planned on getting another ergo soon because I really hate wrapping, but I guess I'll have to wait until she can fill out the carrier! Other than that, I love it! I live in texas and it's not near as hot as wrapping! Great carrier, but I wish it was a little smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Carrier I have purchased! After having my second child close after my first I bought this Ergo and have never looked back. My husband is broad chested and the Ergo fits him perfectly so he can finally share the load!! I live in Australia in a sub-tropical climate and this carrier is just perfect for both the baby and our toddler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know what I would do without this carrier. The material on the performance carrier is much more comfortable than the standard option. It is very comfortable for me and baby. I've worn my son in it since he was 9 days old, he is very happy when he is in his "safe place" as we call it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this carrier! I bought this to take our five month old to Texas to meet the rest of the family, and it's been a life saver. It was a breeze getting through the airport, and makes shopping much easier. I used a wrap when he was smaller, but this is much easier on my back and shoulders now that he's bigger. The material is great too. It's much sleeker than the original ergo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Carrier We have had this for two years; from infant to toddler. I love it! My son loves being carried around now that he is older on my back so he sees everything. Great breathable material. I'm very excited to be able to use this for this long and have no tears or issues. And I get to wear him for a few more years. No toddler leash for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and comfortable I bought this after using the Bjorn since birth to now (bubs is now 4 months old). I much prefer the ergo as it is so much more comfortable on long walks and my baby is so cosy in the infant insert. Love the hood to help her sleep as well. Only wish we'd bought it sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy ever! I've had our Ergo for about a year now, it is amazing! We love it. I have a 17 month old, and he is always so happy when he is being worn, we've recently switched to the back carry and he loves being able to see what's going on!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Impossible to put on I was so excited to get this product! I have two kids under two and thought it would free up my hands during the day. I first tried it when my daughter was 5 months old without the insert. She could hold her head up and sit up on her own. the first problem is that I couldn't really put it in by myself...once I finally got myself in it I couldn't adjust it at all. I had to play the game of taking it off to adjust and out it on again and again. Me and my daughter were over it. She is now 7 months old and is in the 70th percentile for height. I used it to go to a baseball game and my husband was there to help me get in it. So yes I was comfortable in it however my daughter hated it. I am 5'1 and 120 pounds so I am not a big person. This product doesn't really have comfortable leg holes. Her legs were pretty much doing the splits the whole time. I switched it to the hip side and she like it more however again that was never something that I could have accomplished myself. My husband had to pretty much do all the work! Not a fan!
