I love my Ergo carriers, I have two! The first one I got, which I used for my older son, was an Organic Ergo. While I love that one, it's not ideal for traveling and during warm weather. And since we love to travel (usually to someplace sunny), I thought this would be a great addition. Unlike my organic, this one is so much easier to pack. On the plane whenever I take off my organic, it was always too bulky to fit in any of my bags so it always ended up on the floor, yuck. This one folds up into its own pouch, and so thin and lightweight, I don't have to worry about my baby overheating. The trade-off: the straps dig more into the shoulders because there is very little padding. I don't mind it; it's still great overall!
