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 had a cheaper carrier that I received at my baby shower. As my daughter grew, I began to have trouble carrying her because I would have so much back pain. After reading about the crouch dangling, I knew I needed something better! So I read lots of reviews and settled on this one and I could not be happier. I love that the waist straps helps to distribute my daughter's weight and now I can carry her for much longer without the pain.
I bought one month ago, it is great and my baby now four month old like it very much. Just when I open it, the sound is too loud
I bought this for my second son as I continued to get backaches using our Bjorn and everyone raves about the Ergo. I like the styling and it is comfortable but the 360 has this HUGE velcro band that you use to close it vs. a clip. It literally scares my baby everytime I take it off. I imagine this was needed to support a forward facing baby but that doesn't make it any less annoying. It can be hard to get the velcro closure lined up so some of it is usually showing and getting caught on your clothes. That said, the forward facing is worth it to me.
I've been using this carrier for a month now, and it has taken some getting used to since I was using a plain wrap before. Others have commented how "easy" it is to get baby into this carrier compared to others they've seen/tried when they see me doing it. It is definitely quick and easy! I also LOVE the fact that it offers an ergonomically correct forward facing option. I only have two gripes. The strap on the back of the shoulders is not the easiest to do on your own. I know this may be different from person to person, as some may have longer arms than I do, but I just can't believe how frustrating it is sometimes. Tightening it and unhooking it is simple though. My second gripe is that I still feel quite a bit of pressure in my upper back (where I already have pain) when carrying. I may need to do more research on what I could be doing wrong, but I feel like it should be distributing my infant's 16 lbs a little better.
From ordering to receiving, we were handled with care; the gift was excepted with joy. Thank you for hands on care for the product design
