I can't find the original thread either, but here's (http://thehappyhoopywooljunkie.blogspot.com/2011/08/how-to-spot-fake-ergo-baby-carrier.html) a great website that explains the differences.

Yeah, some company is manufacturing counterfeit Ergos. There are some differences, but they are made to look like real Ergos, with their logo and everything. They're unsafe to use with babies :sadno:.

Usually it'll say Minizone on it somewhere, but there may be another company faking Ergos so it may not say that on all fakes.

You also have to be careful when buying on what you think is the real ErgoBaby online store, because there is normally a fake store too. www.ergobaby.com is the REAL one and then anything else is fake. http://www.ergocarriersales.com/[/url] which I assume is a fake website eventhough they aren't saying they are the real ones, but I doubt that Ergo would be wholesaling to a company that knocks off the price by that much. Most serious companies who wholesale will only let you have a deal for a week or two and only for like 10%, nothing like that website is doing.
