I ordered this specifically for a vacation and it definitely got put through its paces. It's been used every day for the past 12 days. I typically wear our 10 mo old in a sling, but it's not great for long stretches of time. I needed something that my husband would use as well and that wouldn't hurt my back after hours of wearing while traveling and walking. This definitely worked out well for us. It was easy to adjust the sizing back and forth between my husband (6', 190 lb) and myself (5'6", 130 lb) - which we regularly did. I like that it had the proper hip support as my husband likes to have our daughter facing forward when he carries her and he did frequently. My husband used it on a four hour hike/ excursion with no problems or complaints. I used for a long period of time (five hours) when we were transiting from one city to another by walking, train, water taxi, and all while rolling/ carrying luggage. I admit, that I would forget that I was carrying her as there was no extra strain from the straps. What I loved is that it is so comfortable. If she fell asleep while we were out and about, we would use the sleep hood to keep her head from flopping around. I loved that my husband would wear it and that it was easy to adjust between my husband and me. Also, we had no issues using through airports, unlike my sling which has metal rings. That being said, I have a love/ hate relationship with the velcro. I love that the velcro makes it quick to wrap around the waist. I hate that it would get caught on the sweaters I was wearing! So be warned if you are wearing something that velcro can attach to! There are some moments when undoing the velcro is just loud. (e.t. Visitng a church/ museum to look at the art work, and daughter started to get fussy in the stroller - pulled out the folded ergo and undid the velcro to strap around my waist...it sounded like it echoed through the whole building and all attention on me). I'd probably need to step out of the room if she's sleeping if I needed to undo the velcro. The carrier itself can also get hot. It's rather thick, so I don't know how much I'll use this in the summer or in temperatures warmer than about 78degrees F. I also did have some trouble reaching the snaps to connect the sleep hood. Maybe my shoulders just don't rotate like that. My husband normally had to help me, although he never had problems when he was wearing it and needed to use the hood. I will say that the first time I used it, it did hurt my shoulder/ neck, but it had to do with the way I adjusted the back panel. Once I figured that out, it wasn't a problem. On the whole, I really liked this carrier. I think it was a great buy and couldn't really find another on the market that matched our needs for the carrier.

Can't get it on by myself, and won't adjust small

I tried this on in-store. I'm 5'1, with a lot of post-preggo weight. Even with my extra weight, I can't get the shoulder straps to adjust small enough for me. I also couldn't get it on by myself--the back clip was too low, and thus really challenging to get into my grip to do up. Both my daughter and I were really uncomfortable in it, and in the front-facing position her knees weren't above her hips (which is why I'd get this carrier over another one). I decided to go with another carrier. The fabric felt quite nice, but would likely be a bit thick for warmer months.

I have a 4 month old baby girl. She is quite heavy but with Argo baby carrier I don't feel any back pains as I used to feel with other carriers. I am so(!) happy with my new 360degrees argo!!
I do not normally write reviews of products. After extensive research I decided to buy this carrier. I didn't want to purchase such an expensive carrier, but it is completely worth the money. My baby is 12 weeks old and is in a Pavlik harness to correct a dislocated hip she was born with. Even in the harness, she fits in the carrier and loves it. She falls asleep everytime I use it. The carrier will be great after she is out of the harness too as it keeps her hips in the correct position. This carrier is awesome:).
Velcro is Cool, not dirty I used to have the original ergobaby carrier and loved that. I was hesitant about the 360 because of all the reviews on the velcro getting lint and ruining clothes. After one of my friends purchased the 360 and told me the velcro didnt bother her at all was when i upgraded. The leg positioning is a lot easier than the original, and most importantly, my 5 month old baby is comfy too in both the front outward or inward positions. The velcro is just on the outside flap and is super comfy for long walks. I was having problems with the original digging into my back after a 1 mile. Also, i have 3 hairy dogs and have yet to see dog fur on the velcro. Please provide a drawstring pouch to store these carriers. I have the ergo wrap and love how it folds in itself.
This is the only carrier my baby likes and I like that she is ergonomically positioned. I was worried about spending so much but its been worth it!
We are very happy with our purchase, but having used the original Ergo before those, are missing a few details. For one, I looooved the pocket on the front. It came in so handy when just popping in quickly into a store: I could just drop my phone, keys, and a credit card in there and go. I also think the additional padding makes this carrier hotter than the original. I got the gray instead of the black to cut down on it, and we live in a temperate climate, but it's proving to be too uncomfortable for our little one when we travel to warmer locales (which we do regularly). I have a love/hate relationship with the velcro. The thick band provides even more back support, but the velcro is loud! I'm getting used to it, though. Overall, it was a worthwhile purchase for us because our baby looooves facing out, if even for a short period of time.
