Great child carrier!

I really like this carrier. It's worth the extra dollars for a carrier that my back is comfortable in.

Great child carrier!

Amazing child carrier!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned this product for a couple years now, and I absolutely love it. It has fit my daughter for 2/3rds of her life, and I think I'll be able to port her around in it for another couple of years at least.

Construction
The pack is solid and well built. I've used it on a number of climbs around the Wasatch front, and it has held up incredibly well. It looks like new, and shows no signs of stress or wear and tear. Even the areas I was initially worried about (the sun shade and the webbing attached to it) have held up just fine. The stirrups get a bunch of use from my daughter, and they've held up very well. Overall the construction is great.

Comfort
This pack has a number of adjustments that really help it stay comfy over a couple hours. The vertical sizing really helps the most. I have it on Large (5' 10") and it keeps the weight of my kid and everythign we're packing perfectly balanced on my back. My wife, who is nearly a foot shorter, is also very comfortable using this pack on the smallest setting. It's versatile and adjustable. The shoulder straps are well padded and the cross straps make it a dream to pack.

Storage
There is a large compartment under the child seat, and it holds a surprising amount of items. I'll usually pack half a dozen water bottles, a bunch of cliff bars, some chips, candy, keys, and a couple phones and am never at any risk of running out of room. You could pretty easily pack a 4 person lunch.

Child Carrying
I end up feeling a bit like Kronk to my daughter's Yzma while porting her around, but she is always comfortable. The sun shade is huge to me as we get a lot of sun on the trails we hike here in Utah, and I don't need her getting hot/burned and having a bad time. The stirrups allow her to move a round a bit and see more things without me having to turn every time to show her. It's comfy enough that she's fallen asleep in it on a couple of occasions.

All in all this is a great pack that I highly recommend. It really changed hiking with a small child, and it's worth dropping a few bucks on this pack if you even only go hiking a half dozen times a year.

Amazing child carrier!
Responded on

I started shopping around for one of these for my cousin's 8 month old. The fact that you just compared this to Kronk hauling Ysma means I am done shopping and this is the one I need.
Research over.

Well done, Sir. Well done.

Comfy and Convenient

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My sister and brother-in-law needed something besides a baby wrap to carry their little guy up the trail, and they absolutely love this. Definitely something I'll buy if I ever have a little one!

Hiking anyone

This pack is great. Easy to get on and off. My son loves it. I love the fact that it so light and has so much padding. Must have.

Comfortable and Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this backpack for my sister. Osprey a no brainer but I was worried the bag wouldn't fit her (5'2") or her husband (6'). The pack was a great fit for both of them it turns out! It's very comfortable for my nephew and he loves riding around in it. I recommend getting the Poco Sun shade as an add on since this pack doesn't come with one.

Great Child Carrier

All my other bags are Osprey bags so it was a no given when I was looking for a Child Carrier to try the Osprey one first and it was a hit. My son loves it and we love using it.
