CarlaAndJames:nevermind, I read the lowest reviews and it looks like they are fake! Shame on Amazon, I wonder if there is a way to let them know they are selling fake carriers??
This is not the first time I've heard of Amazon sellers selling fake carriers. Be wary, particularly if the price seems too good to be true.
I had a similar question a while back http://community.thebump.com/cs/ks/forums/thread/69576751.aspxand I got the black Ergo Sport for $85. It was through Amazon, but sold by Sparkles Gift and Party Shop (which sounds really sketchy).
I was nervous but when it came I really scrutinized it and used a few blog posts that had real/fake comparisons. As far as I can tell, we got a real one.
The final thing I did was google both the merchant and the word Ergo (you can look up official dealers by location, but not by shop name as far as I can tell). Well, a blog post from the actual Ergobaby blog came up, listing a promotion and in it is a long list of participating stores. Now, my assumption is that these stores are selling real Ergo products (otherwise, Ergo would not be promoting them, right?) So I felt really good seeing the shop mine came from as well as Mod Parent which was another Amazon vendor that a poster said wasn't authorized to sell.
So, I am apt to use this as an "ergo dealer list." Here is the post:http://blog.ergobaby.com/2012/06/get-your-kicks-with-ergobaby/
I don't think I would order through Amazon unless the seller was on Ergo's list of authorized sellers. I've read too much about counterfeits lately and don't want to take the chance.
Is this an old post?
