Item # BCP02500NL

Made of durable, lightweight, and breathable fabric, the ERGO Baby Performance Carrier is designed for all active moms and dads. It features a high-performance polyester exterior, ideal for outdoor activities in all climates; a breathable mesh lining, keeping babies and parents cooler and more comfortable; and a cooling panel for extra wicking. The attached sleeping hood stores easily in zippered pocket. This stylish, streamlined 3-in-1 design offers a smooth, supportive fit for parents and babies of most sizes, and can be used to carry babies from newborn to toddler on the back, front, and hip positions. The ergonomic design of the Performance line ensures that your baby is in the correct sitting position to encourage proper hip, pelvis and spine growth. It does this by distributing most of the baby's weight between the hips and thighs. The design also considers the health and comfort of parents. The carrier balances the baby's weight to the parents' hips and shoulders, reducing physical stress.

easy to use & lightweight
March 10, 2015
Works better than babybjorn active. The latter suits smaller babies when they are not too heavy. Ergobaby feels lighter when carrying baby. Only thing is that it cannot face forward, but I heard it's not good to face front for long.

very comfortable for dad and baby
September 7, 2014
I decided on this Ergobaby carrier because I liked the way it looked. All the Ergobaby carriers look good but this one is a bit more sporty. This carrier works really well for walking around when my baby doesn't want to be in the car seat. It is not front facing but that doesn't seem to matter because she can look around, but most importantly look up at me and feel safe. Wearing the baby both on my front and side is very comfortable. The carrier does a good job of distributing weight so there is not back strain when wearing this for hours. I have taken it with me to Hong Kong and its been warn by several members of my family with ease. For example I am 6'3" and my wife is 5" and it easily adjusts to both of us in a snap. The only thing that was a mystery to me is there are two claps at the front that don't seem to hook to anything, I'm guessing that is for some optional attachment. I believe this is a comfortable carrier for baby because when his is fighting sleep I will put her in and walk around. In about 5 minutes or less she is usually out with her head resting on the shoulder straps. I love being able to have my hands free and still keep an eye on the baby. She likes to watch me to do chores.
Easily adjustable Comfortable Easy to clean
Best Uses:
Rock baby to sleep while being able to have your hands free to catch up on chores. Travel.

Love this carrier
August 28, 2014
This is a great baby carrier. I love how you can adjust it one time, and then just throw it on quickly and easily, knowing that your baby is really secure inside. It's very uncomplicated. I like the performance carrier because I feel like it keeps my baby a little bit cooler and more comfortable. I use this everywhere - walking, grocery shopping, at the mall, at outdoor events... everywhere! I like how you can pull the hood up and snap it to the carrier if baby falls asleep. It's also very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time because the weight is distributed evenly. This is really the perfect carrier.

Definitely the most comfortable baby carrier I've used. Baby seems happy in it, though sometimes I think he'd prefer to be able to face out and look around. He can sleep comfortably in it.
No option for baby to face out
Best Uses:
Comfortable to carry baby around, even for long periods.

Baby Likes This

This carrier is light weight, easy to use, and is comfortable for the baby. He likes falling asleep in it. For the parent, it does to strain the shoulders and hips a bit (baby is 15.5 pounds) after a while. But overall it's comfortable, especially having the little one so close and nestled. We use a rolled up blanket for him to sit on, to boost him up. We didn't get the infant insert since at 4.5 months, he'd outgrow it quickly, if he wasn't already too big for it.
Light, breathable, keeps cool

Fantastic Carrier
December 28, 2013
I got this to replace a borrowed organic Ergo that needed to be returned. I loved the organic one and was reluctant to veer from that product because it was so soft an cozy. But, we live in a very hot climate, are active & also have a 40lb 4yr old, in addition to a 20lb 9mos old, so the performance seemed like a better fit for our family. So far I love it. It's lighter & cooler than the organic, though, as expected, not as soft. But it's still soft enough & provides that snuggly feel with the little one. I have numerous carriers: a Bjorn classic, which my husband loves, a K'tan that I liked with my older daughter, a hotsling which was nice for 0-4 months, a ring sling which was great for 4-8 months, and since 8 months old the Ergo is all I want to use (I wish I'd had one with my first)! I've even carted my huge 4yr old in it & it was relatively comfortable (like the 45lb weight limit). I'd highly recommend an Ergo, in general & specifically the Performance model if you live in a hot place and/or have heavy kids & an active lifestyle.
Lightweight, cool, comfy, easy/discreet to nurse in
Straps a little scratchy but payoff is cooler & more supportive
Best Uses:
Hiking, shopping, housework, travel

Great Carrier
December 21, 2013
I love the look (and color) of this carrier! My baby is not due for another 4 months so I haven't really gotten to try it out, but the blue is beautiful and it is light weight. The shoulder straps are ergonomic and nicely padded. I've read other reviews where people said they strap mesh material is "scratchy" but I do not think they are - and I plan to wear it with tank tops the majority of the time.
light weight compared to other carriers breathable material holds kids up to (I think) 45 lbs!

Great Design
December 16, 2013
The Ergobaby Performance carrier is extremely easy to use. Our 4 week old fit great and didn't appear to get too hot while in the carrier for a little over an hour walking around shopping. This carrier is extremely easy to use and adjust.

Love this carrier!!

I had the bjorn but it hurt my back. I returned it and got this one!! Its a great carrier!! My baby loves it and so do I. It gives you tummy to tummy time so when you are out your baby feels safe and will remain quiet. I love the fabric. Its very well made. There are lots of pockets. I love that feature so I don't have to take a bag into the store. I also love the nap/rain hood. You will not find a better carrier.
