This is my dream carrier.
I've ordered this carrier as a replacement for my Eco AngelPack. There was nothing wrong with my existing carrier, but I always wanted an Ergo and can afford it now, but couldn't then (it is pricey). I chose Ergo performance because I was promised it weighs less than standard ergo and I loved the green colour I received the package promptly and I have to say that I am delighted with the carrier. It has nothing majorly different from my AngelPack, but it is better in many ways. For example, ergo is all in one piece - you can't lose a chest strap. It's easy to pop on and off. And there's A LOT of extra strap length. \Unfortunately my old carrier didn't have very long straps, so hip carry was not possible. The booklet was very helpful, explaining how to get baby on back, front or hip. Overall I'm satisfied with it. Rain hood is also nice. Bottom line - it is expensive, but I feel it is comfortable and well made so worth it. Service was very good too.

I am delighted with my Ergo Performance. My baby is a really 'hot-blooded' little boy and both he and I were overheating with wrap carriers. We both stay nice and cool with this.My husband really likes this carrier as it looks quite sporty and he has found it really comfy to use (6"1, size Large). I on the other hand am only 5'2"/size 10 and also find this carrier very comfy. Of note, the shoulder straps are different to the original - they are not thick and squishy but firmer and thinner. However, I have never found them uncomfy even after hours. They are also more tapered and come in closer together. I was worried this might mean they rubbed on my neck. However, having tried both the Performance and Original I found these actually a much better fit - the original straps are very bulky and wide-set and meant it kind of hung off my outer shoulders and pulled. So some smaller ladies may find the straps rub on their neck but I've actually found this a much better fit.Although this is not a 'waterproof' carrier, I have survived 30mins in a big downpour. I had my regular-sized waterproof coat on over and was able to do this up at the bottom (below the Ergo) to cover my son's legs. I put the Ergo hood up, tucked his arms in and scampered home! I was impressed to find an essentially dry baby underneath when I got in, who had enjoyed the adventure! The lightweight nature of this carrier also meant it then dried out quickly.Overall, a functional, versatile carrier which is comfy for 2 very different sized people and also very easy to adjust between us.

This is a fantastic sling and although it is expensive i think its worth every penny. My 4 month old is a hefty 21 lbs and carrying him in the baby bjorn was really hurting my shoulders. However with the ergo i can carry him for ages in the front carrying position without sore shoulders. It takes a little while to adjust all the straps to a comfy position but once adjusted its very easy to use. My baby does seem more comfortable with me using it then my husband, he seems to sit a little too low in the sling with my husband using. I'm sure a bit of strap fiddling would resolve this minor issue though. The pocket is really handy for wallet/ phone but i'm now in debate whether to splash out on the cargo pack or not....

I had been searching for a carrier which was both comfortable for baby and me for ages. This it it. The best recommendation I have ever received. It is gentle on my back and my daughter settled into it so quickly.I have also found it easy to put on.

Using it for our ten week old with the Infant Insert. Easy to use, although requires a little practice to get the hang of it. Very very comfortable to wear!Baby seems very happy in it too.

This is lightweight and comfortable to wear and great for when your baby becomes too big/heavy for the baby bjorn. You can hardly tell you're carrying a baby as the weight is well distributed. The only trouble I'm having is getting my 7 month into the back carrying position - it's tricky on your own, but I'm sure with practice we'll master it!

The Ergo may be pricier than other carriers but it's worth every penny! I wish I'd bought it sooner. It spreads baby's weight well between your upper and lower back, rather than straining your shoulders as alot of other carriers do. Really quick to pop on and off and no hassle at all to get baby in to the right position. The pockets are also roomy enough to get a couple of nappies and other bits and bobs in.
