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 got this to replace my other carrier which had to be tied on. I wanted something quicker and easier to get on and off for traveling on the airplane. I'm not 100% sure on this yet. I've only used it a few times so far. My son just turned a year old when I bought it, so he's already into the phase where he isn't crazy about being held all the time. I used this in Jamaica on our trip, I hoped the vented back side of it would help keep us cooler, but really it was in the 80's while we were there and so it was warm for us anyways wearing him. He did fall asleep in it when he was tired though, so he must be fairly comfortable in it. I'm just not sure if I feel like he is sitting up high enough. I haven't tried the back carry yet with him. Maybe we will like that more now that he is bigger.

Comments about Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier - Graphite:

I purchased this product for my future hikes and also to be able to tolerate the hot weather here in Hawaii. It was actually my friend's advice as she has both the original and this product. She said the original can be quite hot here. I tried this product, and other famous & popular brands'. This one felt most secured (for me) and it really feels breathy.
One advice I would like to give the moms who are considering to use the infant insert with this. Unless you have to carry your baby in these, I would recommend to wait till your baby is actually big enough to be carried without the infant insert. I purchased it hoping I could carry my son around in the house 1. to be able to use two hands and 2. to practice carrying him in front. I don't use them at all. Maybe he is almost too big in the infant insert, he does not seem comfortable in it.
Otherwise, I like this product very much!

    Use it everyday to walk the neighborhood with my baby! It's awesome! The only thing I didn't like is that the infant insert is sold separately.

    Comments about Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier - Graphite:

    I love my ergo, I've used it alot for the outdoor and plan on keep using it. The only thing I don't like is the bottom panel. It's ok and in the right place but once baby is in it kinda makes it sink. So it comes lower
    I just need to adjust it higher then I would think then it's great. Oh and I wish it had a pocket to carry my cell phone like my boba 4g does.

    Comments about Ergobaby Performance Ventus Carrier - Graphite:

    I am a first time mom who is 5'5" and 110 pounds, and wanted to be able to carry my baby around when I am home to get work done around the house. A family friend gave us the BabyBjorn, which fit nice and tight, but once the baby was more than 12 pounds, it became incredibly back-breaking to carry her around - even if it's just for a small period of 10 minutes. I tried other Ergobaby models (way too big for my frame), Beco carriers, Onyababy carriers, Boba carriers, lillebaby carriers and the Action Baby Carrier, and decided on this model. Most of the other models worked for front carrying position, but couldn't be tightened enough for long-term back carry position for a small framed person. The Ventus fabric really is the most breathable among the performance fabrics out there, and if I adjust the straps to the smallest it could be, my 8 month old baby can actually be nice and snug when I carry her on my back. My baby is at 90th percentile for height, and 50th percentile for weight to give you an idea. She also has very good upper body control, and often falls asleep when I carry her on my back. You should know that the tiny zipper pocket does not hold more than the sleep hood. So, you will need to carry your phone, keys and wallet in another bag even if you just need to run out for 10 minutes. This carrier also does not allow the straps to criss cross in the back, so it is not as ergonomic as the beco gemini/soleil when baby is being front carried. The hip-carrying position is also not a comfortable option for the little one due to the positioning of the shoulder straps. It is right at her neck, so that she cannot really look forward in the direction you are facing while in the hip-carrying position. Even with these minuses, I would still recommend this product for the summer season, as it allows me to carry her around without her over-heating. And it is the only performance carrier that fits my small frame. It does not allow baby to face forward in the front carrying position like the Beco Gemini, Lillebaby, or Ergobaby 360, but because of how comfortable, truly lightweight and sleek it is, I am thankful to have it around!

      The back was too high and cut righ into the baby's neck. It was not comfortable for them at all. And my babies are 12 months old. I will be returning it for a regular ergo.

        Nice and light weight. Great for summer. But only good for smaller babies. Would be nice if came in a toddler size. I don't feel like my child will feel comfortable in it for an extended period of time as it would hurt her legs.

          I bought this carrier because it had a better overall rating and it was the carrier that had the highest weight limit (important to me because my son has health issues that can effect/delay his ability to walk).
          pros: loved the cover that you can unzip to keep sun and wind off baby. I also liked the mesh design
          cons: I didn't realize I had to buy an insert for early use because my son was below the accepted weight range for safe use without the insert; item is expensive and then for some users, add an additional 30 for the insert :(

          The size is much bigger than the ones offered in the market, if it could be designed in a smaller size to make it easier to use and store. I will still have to buy another one from a different brand like Chico (easier to use and doesn't cover all the body).
