Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product, worth the wait. It was a long journey to get the one we wanted, but ultimately, we're happy with our purchase. My wife had researched carriers for about a month before we decided on the one we wanted. We stopped by a local store and they carried an array of choices EXCEPT for this one. So, we ended up ordering online, thinking we'd possibly have it by memorial day sow e could enjoy some hiking. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and it was about 9 days later before we got the notification that the item even shipped. When we received the product, we discovered that we needed an infant insert/pillow. Why wasn't this suggested during checkout!?!? So, back to the store to buy the $20 item ONLY to find out they were giving them away for FREE if purchased with an ergobaby carrier... but they didn't have the one we wanted..... We've been using the carrier non-stop for the last few weeks and love it, despite the minor setbacks. At least I'll be able to guide my friends through their purchase. Our baby loves hanging around in the carrier and can last about 2 hours before getting too fussy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely in love ! It's been over a month of using my carrier and all of us, baby, hubby and I, are so happy with our purchase ! So easy to use! Super light, not bulky ! Baby's super comfy and loves the closeness ! We carry baby everywhere, hiking, walking running errands, around the house.. She loves it ! And she falls asleep in it which I never thought would be possible ! Plus I take advantage if the hood and nurse her discreetly in public :) best part is it supports her correctly so I never have to worth about it messing with the alignment if her body or holding her by the crotch! It's a great carrier !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Just bought this before St. Patrick's Day and we are very happy we did! We have the newborn insert for our 3.5 month old, likely will be out of it soon but for now he needs it and he is 75th percentile (in case anyone is debating getting it). Went to go see the Chicago River get dyed green and he slept comfortably, no issues for a good majority of the 4-5 hour adventure. Stayed plenty warm even in the 35 degree temps. Dad didn't even get tired or have any back pain. Also took it to opening day and I could even sit comfortably with him in it in the front position. It's a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Looking forward to enjoying it more once these amazing Chicago summers start up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I bought this a few weeks ago at Babies R Us and am so very glad I did. We ended up not buying the infant insert and turns out we didn't even need it. LO curls up and sleeps against my chest in it. Love how durable and EASY to use it is. My friend had a carrier of a different brand and it was VERY difficult to get on and put the LO in the carrier. I am so very happy with our purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for South Florida I bought this after borrowing a friend's carrier. My baby loves it, and I love the light, vented fabric. It will be great for the hot South Florida summers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For Hot-Mamas!!!! Ok, let me start this off by mentioning just how warm bodied I am. The maternity nurses said my room was set to 63 to make both me and baby comfortable. And our professional baby photographer at the newborn photo shoot said she'd never met such a hot bodied (temperature) mama and baby!!! Ok, with that said: this is the only carrier I can use! I've tried the original, only works in cold weather and even then ill sweat enough to soak a bra in front and top of my pants in back. I've tried the Lite Moby wrap, ya no way in heck. Even hotter! SO... The Ventus! It's works the best. Not 100% but as good as it's gonna get!!! A trick....I take a very thin muslin burp cloth (it's about 15"x15") and I tuck it into my bra straps and let it hang down in between me and the baby. That way, when I sweat in warm weather, it absorbs the sweat without the baby getting his clothes wet or his head/face!!!! This saved it all together! Buy thin muslin burp cloth, oh, and I use this same trick between bubba and his car seat! Infant car seat. Used to sweat and scream and sweat some more! But the muslin fixed it immediately and now he just sleeps in it the second he lands in there and we get on the road (or jogger stroller) Hope this helps!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for summer and travels It's exactly what we need for traveling and summer. I like the way it holds. My daughter likes it too. I miss the little pocket that they feature of their other carriers. Also it would be nice if the hood was longer. It's a little tight on my daughter's head. she's 11 months and not a big baby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase! I bought this for my second son after trying everything else-I'm petite at 5'2 and always had trouble with fit...we tried the Bjorn, slings and wraps with no luck until now! Baby loves it, it's easy to put on and fits my frame perfectly! Already recommending to friends and family!
