Product Description

The Ergobaby Performance Collection Ventus Carrier is the perfect lightweight companion for active parents and built for adventure. Inspired by the Latin word for wind, this carrier features a moisture-wicking mesh lining that provides plenty of ventilation for ultimate breathability so both baby and parent stay cooler. The curved shoulder straps maximize parent comfort in the back carry position. The slightly longer back panel is ideal for carrying babies (6 months+), allowing the carrier to be worn longer. Durable, lightweight and super cool, the Performance Collection Ventus Carrier is the perfect companion for any adventure.

Ok I'm new to the baby carrying world and I researched every single carrier out there. Tried the MOBY wrap but too much fabric and baby wasn't comfortable. Than read about the Ergobaby products I knew it would be love at first ride. Borrowed the carrier in the Original style and it felt really good. Does get a few tries to get used too and baby did not like it at first, but it was because I wasn't placing him in right. So don't worry if you think your baby doesn't like it at first 3rd time is always a charm. Than thought hard on each carriers advantages and decided to get the Performance Ventus. My goodness is baby ever happy! Compared to the original this one feels so much more padded and light! Baby fell right asleep first stroll around the neighborhood. The mesh makes it so much more breathable as well especially now that it's summer. This is now my go to for shopping. No more lugging around strollers. So if your baby is om the warm side I would really suggest this carrier over the others hands down.

I rarely leave negative reviews, but I had to for this product. I am super bummed that I wasted so much money on it. I used only a ring sling with my first child, but wanted the option of an SSC with my second. After a lot of research on SSCs, I chose this one because of the Ergo's excellent reputation, recommendations from friends who love their regular Ergos, and we would be moving south when baby was a few months old. I thought this would be just like a regular Ergo, but more breathable. It is definitely not. I purchased the carrier when I was pregnant, then a natural infant insert after baby arrived and was just 6 lbs 11 oz. I used it a few times with her as a newborn and it was relatively comfortable to wear. She fit snugly in the insert and seemed happy in there. She grew very quickly and soon the insert wasn't necessary, but the little pillow was. This is when I realized just how weirdly shaped this carrier really is. Getting the little pillow placed and her with it was ridiculous. It moved around inside. It wasn't quite high enough for baby to see anything outside the carrier. I even tried using blankets to boost her instead, which was a little easier to maneuver, but still uncomfortable for both of us. The older she got, the worse this situation was. She is now 9 months old and we moved from NY to GA a few months ago. First, it's still quite hot, mesh or not. Second, she is huge for her age (she was 28 inches long and 18 lbs at just 6 months old) but STILL her head doesn't stick out of this carrier. She will arch her back, pull on the straps and strain to see out or scrunch her body down and shove her face under my arm to look out the armpit hole. She is not happy in there like she is in the ring sling, wrap, or even the cheap SSC I picked up to use around the house instead of this one. We both love baby wearing, just not this awful carrier. One-size-fits-most seems like a great selling point for this carrier. My husband and I would both be able to use it! But despite being an average size adult woman (5' 6" and 150 lbs), I have to tighten every strap on this (save the waist) all the way down as small as it will go. Again, the front is so long that it just swallows my baby. As you can imagine, having her trying to peek out by whatever means necessary is really uncomfortable for us both and frustrating for her. Not what you want when baby wearing. The carrier is well made and straps are secure, but easy to adjust, just as one would expect from the Ergo brand. It's an ill-fitting, massively long carrier. I wish I had been able to return it once I realized it was just never going to work for us. In the image she was 20 lbs. and had rolled receiving blankets plus my hand holding her up higher.

Comments about Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier - Graphite:

It's difficult getting my baby in the carrier without assistance from another adult. I am not able to get the baby into the carrier on my own. The carrier also does not fit my husband very well. He does not have a large build either.

    "Must Have" baby gear!

    By Nursesmith2008

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier - Graphite:

    Our Ergo carrier changed my life! We had a "high needs" baby if you will. If he wasn't being held he was fussing. Between soothing him and nursing on demand it became impossible to get anything done around the house. I bought an Ergo out of desperation. From the day it arrived until he turned about 11months I used it daily! It went everywhere we went. I especially loved that I could nurse him without having to stop what I was doing and sit down. He is now 15 months and I still pull it out on cranky days when he wants to be clingy. Best baby item I purchased!

    Comments about Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier - Graphite:

    This is a great baby carrier, and it has an infant insert that fits your LO snuggly inside. It's pretty supportive and does come with instructions on how to properly place your child inside comfortably. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it does take some use to getting it on and putting your child in. An extra set of hands is definitely helpful until you get the hang of it. Overall though, it's a nice carrier.

      The carrier is very simple and our son loves falling asleep in it. I wasn't sure how to put it on at first, but it was very simple once i got used to it.
