ERGObaby Performance Carrier Review

I received a gently used organic ERGObaby carrier around the time Kaylee was born. I used it all the time until I left it on the floor, and Brian accidentally stepped on it and broke the waist buckle (he has a heavy foot). So I was thrilled to have the chance to test out their new Performance Carrier.

We spend a lot of time outdoors since we live in a beautiful mountain town next to a lake. If I know we’re going to be out in the heat for long periods of time, I like to have a carrier with me that I know will breathe so I don’t feel like I’m wearing my own personal heater.

The ERGObaby Performance Carrier is great for outdoors activities! The outer layer of the carrier is made from high-performance Ripstop water-repellant polyester. I was surprised by how soft the fabric is. It seems to conform nicely to the girls’ bodies.

The carrier’s lining is made from mesh in the Charcoal and Blue models to provide extra wicking (I have the Charcoal). Whereas the Gray and Green models have a 100% cotton lining that is also designed to be moisture wicking (just not as much).

The stitching is also heavy duty. It’s reinforced at all fabric intersections for extra durability and at critical intersections in the interior for added safety.

Additionally, the Performance Carrier is super lightweight (at only 1.21 pounds), so I don’t mind wearing it buckled around my waist in anticipation of one of the girls wanting to be worn while we’re out.

I like that the sleep hood is also made of the same water-repellant fabric as the body of the carrier. Kaylee loves to hide under it when the sun is too bright, or when she’s just not feeling social. It’s very adjustable, so it should fit just about any child you might want to carry.

The hood has its own little zippered pocket for storage, but there’s quite a bit of space in that pouch, so if you’re not using the hood, you can easily stash a couple small belongings in it too.

There’s another large zippered pocket just to the right of the hood storage compartment that holds quite a bit. I’m sure you could stash a diaper and wipes in there in addition to your phone, keys and a small wallet.

One of the features I really love in this carrier is how padded the shoulder straps are (there’s nothing worse than straps that dig into your shoulders). The Performance Carrier’s shoulder straps are padded with 1” high-density premium foam, and expand from 27” to 49” in length.

The waist strap is also lightly padded with 1/4” high-density EVA foam, and expands from 23.6” to 51.18” in length. I love that the waist buckle has the extra security loop as an added safety feature.

It’s a very comfortable carrier for both parent and child. The design ensures that your child’s weight is evenly distributed between your shoulders and hips, so you’re always comfortable. It will fit adults who are 5’ to 6’5” tall, depending upon body type.

Because you can only use the ERGObaby Performance Carrier in the inward facing position, it properly supports your child’s hips, pelvis and spine. It’s designed to be used with a wide range of ages and weights, from 7 to 45 pounds.

You can use the carrier for front, back and hip carrying. I’ve gotten so comfortable with the back carry (and the girls love to be front carried) that I haven’t tried hip carrying yet. That’s next on my list.

There is also a wide range of compatible accessories that ERGObaby offers. I got to try the Cargo pack, which snaps right under the large zippered pocket and velcros to the waistband so it’s very secure. You could easily stash 2 water bottles and all of the snacks you need for a hike in it.

Overall, I love this carrier. It’s comfortable and durable, and will be one of my go-to carriers for long walks and hikes during the warm summer months!

Be sure to check out the ERGObaby Performance Carrier and connect with ERGObaby on Facebook and Twitter.

Ergos are the BEST carriers! Granted, I haven’t tried them all, but I’m in love with ours. I wish it were a bit more breathable, because I always end up super hot in it when carrying my hot natured baby around, but it’s still extremely comfortable.

There are so many great features of this carrier! Now, if I can just convince the hubs to get me one…

it’s nice that you have so many pockets, i would be nervous with the mesh being hard to clean though, or easy to rip.

I have always wanted to try and ergo but have never had the extra money to spend on such an expensive carrier. I love that this carrier is made to hold their hips in the proper place and not be a “crotch dangler”. Plus, how awesome is it that its so breathable!? My moby can get super toasty even in the house!

Great review! I’m loving the cargo pouch on this performance Ergo. I also like that it can be worn on adults up to 6’5″. My husband is 6’4″ and hardly anything baby related, think strollers and such, are made for anyone that tall. :) This would make for a great carrier for my family.

Hello! I know this post is from a year ago, but I just thought I’d ask…Do you know if the grey and green / charcoal and blue still made with different materials where you said mesh lining vs cotton? Also, any opinion on “scratchiness” of the shoulder pad material? I’ve read some other review and some mention it, some don’t. I will be wearing w/ sleeveless a lot, so I’m curious. Thanks!

Reply

207 Chrystal Johnson November 29, 2013 at 10:35 am

I’m not sure about the current materials. I’d check with Ergo directly on that. I didn’t notice any scratchiness personally, and I do wear tank tops a lot during summer.
