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.

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 love everything about the Ergo 360, except one thing. The Velcro is too noisy when taking it off with a sleeping baby. Perhaps a double clip would be better. Otherwise, it's a versatile carrier!
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!
I have purchased almost every baby carrier made. Seriously. I own a Baby K'tan, a Beco, a Baby Bjorn, Baby Bjorn active, a Moby wrap, a mei tai, and a ton of slings in various makes and models. I like many of them for various reasons, (not the baby Bjorns, though, they break my neck and upper back) but the Ergo 360 wins the award for the coziest of them all. The infant insert is an irritating joke and the directions to go with it are painfully pathetic, especially given the cost of this beast, but you simply can't beat the carrier itself for being functional and ergonomic. I have seven children, so I'm not new to this carrier business, either. I'm just sad it took me until my seventh child to find this carrier. Save your money on all the other trinkets and bells and whistles for baby and buy this carrier, it is a lifesaver. My only request to the company is to please take the time to provide written instructions. The pictures are helpful, but a trouble shooting section on what to do if you face issues would be helpful. I had the baby in the back position and felt like the straps on my chest were choking me. After messing around with the straps I finally found a comfortable position, but it was irritating that the instructions weren't more helpful.
I have had two other types of carriers and neither even remotely compares to the comfort of this Ergo. My 9 month old will still fall asleep in it-she is 18lbs and I have no problems carrying her. It also washes very well. My four star rating is due to the expensive price, even though I think it is worth it!
Upgraded from the original and couldn't be happier. so comfortable, even when baby is facing out, i dont feel any change of weight balance likein a bjorn. only negatives are that it doesnt have the pocket anymore and baby drools all over the it whilst facing out .
