Comparing different ergo models

 

What is the difference between the ERGObaby Sport Carrier and the Performance Carrier?

FABRIC: The ERGObaby Sport Carrier is made from a blend of 35% cotton/65% polyester, while the Performance Carrier features an exterior of 98% lycra/2% polyester (Grey) or 70% nylon/30% cotton (Green). Performance carriers also have a CoolMax panel for extra wicking, and a mesh lining.

WEIGHT: Due to the difference in fabrics, the ERGObaby Performance Carrier is about 1/3 lighter weight than the ERGObaby Sport, Original, or Organic carriers.

WAIST BELT: Both carriers have waist belts that can extend an extra 5” past the length of our Original or Organic ERGObaby Carriers, accommodating from 25” to 48”. The waist extension accessory is compatible with the ERGObaby Sport Carrier, but not with the Performance carriers.

SHOULDER STRAPS: The ERGObaby Sport Carrier’s shoulder straps are straight, as the Original and Organic Carriers, and can extend to 27”. The Performance Carrier’s shoulder straps are contoured; feature thinner, non-water-absorbent foam; and extend to 23”, like the Original and Organic ERGObaby Carrier’s straps.

SLEEPING HOOD: The ERGObaby Sport Carrier’s sleeping hood is detachable. The Performance Carrier’s sleeping hood is attached, and stores in the zippered pocket.

CHEST STRAP: The ERGObaby Performance Carrier’s chest strap is on a slider, for easy adjusting.

Who Should Buy the ERGObaby Sport Carrier?

With the combination of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, the ERGObaby Sport is an ideal choice for parents in warmer climates. The vent below the hood pocket also keeps both parent and baby cooler.

Parents with larger frames love the ERGObaby Sport, since the shoulder straps extend an extra 4” (to 27”), and the waist belt extends an extra 5”(to 48”). The waist extension can also be used with the ERGObaby Sport. However, the ERGObaby Sport can also accommodate smaller parents, since the waist belt cinches to 30”, making it an ideal choice for families with babywearers of different sizes!



Will the ERGObaby Sport Carrier fit people with smaller frames?

For petite people with waists measuring 30” or less, we recommend wearing the waist belt around the hips. If the ERGObaby Sport Carrier is still too loose, we recommend one of our Standard or Organic ERGObaby Carriers.
