    Game Changer

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Being an active person, a littler person can make it difficult to get out and enjoy doing what you love. This pack makes it easy. It's super comfy for both me and my little dude. Its light and sturdy, has plenty of storage for the type of hike I would be going on with a kid. All the features are amazing, the sun shade, the drool pad, the hydration sleeve.. I could go on. I've used this in the mountains, or something as simple as yard work. It's nice to have adjustable straps so that I can use this for a long period of time as he grows and grows...and grows.

    Game Changer

    I can hardly wait!

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

    I just bought this pack for our Anticipated Grandchild and parents. We had many wonderful hikes with AG's mother, who grew out of a very simple (but red also) REI kid pack 30-some years ago. I can hardly wait!

    Hi Jane! I feel th esame way! We just had a baby boy a few months ago, and I cannot wait to get out with him in the Poco! I also have a 12 year old boy, and the Poco came out after he was way too big, so I am psyched to use it!

    I hope your family enjoys this pack, and thank you so much for choosing Osprey!

    Awesome pack

      My wife and I purchased this pack after our first child and we are very happy with it. The harness (if adjusted properly) distributes the weight extremely well, and adjusts very easily. The sun shade is also great for keeping leaves, branches, ect from hitting your kid in the face while hiking. Works great to keep the sun out too. The drool pad can be washed and there is plenty of storage for diapers and what not. I'm 6ft and the pack fits me great. My wife however is about 5ft 2in with a shorter torso. Even with harness adjusted the the smallest setting, the bag is just slightly too large for her. Just something to watch out for if this is for a potentially smaller hiker. The pack is definitely geared towards "hiking" due to its aluminum frame. I only say this bec I know there are other carriers that are more for an urban environment and are less supportive. Love the pack, worth every dollar!

      Awesome pack

      Great review, Clayton. Thanks for taking the time to write. I now have an 8 week old and I am psyched to give it a try. Your point is a good one about the very small hiker. However, there is only so much travel this pack can have to accommodate small and large people. I wish we could hit it all, but its very tough to do!

      Thanks again,

      selfies are tacky

      but whatever. I like this photo because it reminds me how adjustable this pack is. This pictures features a 6 month old who's in the high 90 percentile for height and weight. I have a friend who puts his two year old in the same carrier.

      The Poco kid carrier series (plus, premium included) are highly adjustable for both mommy/daddy and baby/kid. That's fantastic.

      Perfect

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this so I could get outside with my daughter and pass on my love for the outdoors. It has a ton of well-thought-out features. I'm happy with the size, too. I think the premium would be more space than necessary for day hikes. My daughter seems to like it, too, as she almost never complains while hiking and will usually take a nap or two while we're out.

      This is near Clyde Lake (overlooking Wall Lake) in the Uintah Mountains of Utah.

      Best of the child carriers

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I can't say enough about how pleased we've been with our Poco Plus. We actually bought the premium at first, but sold it to a friend as the storage options on the Plus seemed (and have been) more convenient for us (we never used the day pack). If you get in a store and actually play around with this pack and its competitors, you'll start to understand the advantages. Firstly, it's extremely comfortable for the parents, regardless of torso length or waist. My wife is tiny; I've got a spare tire. The pack fits us both and takes hardly any time to switch between. The integrated sun shade is easy to deploy, provides a little bug protection, but most importantly to us, protects against branches (or at least lets you know when that downed log you're ducking under is about to take off junior's head). The downsides to this pack are nit-picky, but the drool pad is a pain to remove due to tight toggles, it's a little tricky to route the tube for a hydration bladder if you use one, and the hipbelt pockets are worthless if you do have the aforementioned spare tire. Oh, and if you like to hike with the kickstand IN (which means a smaller profile/less bumping into stuff when you turn), you effectively lose that bottom storage area, which is a bit annoying. Gripes aside, this is still hands down better than any other kid carrier I've tested (and I used to work for a major outdoor retailer, fitting people for packs). Also, the front haul loop is tapered, so you can clip on any toys or pacifiers your kid might need. Not sure if Osprey intended this to be so, but it's a great feature in our books. Love the pack and are now on child number 2 with it. Our oldest is going on 4 and weighs around 30 pounds. I'll take the pack with me when we do longer hikes for when she hits the wall, and it still holds her like a champ.

      Baby loved it

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

      We bought this back pack for our 1 year old son, so we could take him to a trip to Peru, and I have to say it was our savior! The paths in Peru, especially in Cusco and Machu Picchu, are pretty narrow and they are not meant for baby carriages, so we needed something we could put in our backs and at the same time would let us walk free; this back pack offered all those things and more. It has a lot of pockets so we were able to carry baby food, water, diapers, sweaters and so much more on them, without having to take an extra bag. Also, it can stand by itself, so we could put the back pack with the baby on it on the floor and rest from time to time. And our baby loved it, he didn’t mind being on it at all. The only downside I encounter is that it weighs a little bit more than I thought it would.

      Awesome pack for enabling the outside

      • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I expect this to get my wife and I back into the woods with our son and enable much more activity.
      The Poko Plus apears to be pretty great. It's lighter than other options with more storage. I do wish i'd paid more attention and gotten the Poko Premium as i think the extra 600 cu in. would be vital, but the option to put a Day Lite pack (700 cu in) on the back should be fine. I want to stowe diaper bag contents as well as sport crag kit and maybe some food/water.
      It's relatively easy to set up and adjust though some clips have stowaway capabilities that make them less easy to adjust but hide them from little hands. The drool pad is awesome for a teething 5 month old. The hip pockets are pretty small. Maybe fit a knife, compass, small snack or two, but little else. The cell phone pocket on the shoulder is a bit small for most smart phones. Probably better for a point and shoot (do people still have those?)
      The best feature is that it's adjustable so my 5'8" wife and I (6'3") can trade duties.

      We have a winner

      I think prince Rainier is happy with the new kit. That looks says it all. For a kid barely out of the womb, he's sure taken to being outside. We've been taking stroller walks for a while now, and he lights up like nothing else. But now with the Poko Plus, we'll probably try a new strategy.

      We have a winner

      Little Dude Loves It!

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      My son loves riding along in this kid carrier. Everything on the pack is really well thought out. The incorporated sun shield is awesome. Storage is plentiful but also allows for the excuse that your significant other should carry some of the gear in their pack, since you are carrying the kid. Pack is comfortable and very easy to adjust for both the parent and kid sizing. Hauled the kid around Yellowstone recently and the whole family had a blast!

      He loves it so much that this week when he saw the pack he started to cry until I put him in it. I then had to haul him around in the pack while I mowed the lawn. Least we were both quite comfortable.

      Great Ride For The Little Man

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I've packed my little man through quite a few hikes ranging from a couple miles to around ten. He's loved every moment of it and after configuring the pack to fit, it's not too noticeable on the back. I love how it's easy to adjust so the wife or I can have it for within just a few moments... Great pack, would recommend for anyone looking for solid child carrier with great adjustability.

      Best Baby Item Ever!!

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      This thing is legit! Best money I've ever spent on a baby item! The pack fits great, and it holds the child nice and snug against your body. This is way better than a front baby carrier. Its not only good for hikes but it's also great for walks around the neighborhood, I prefer it over the stroller. The bottom pocket is great for stashing a jacket. The canopy doubles as both a sunshade and a rain cover. You won't regret buying it. Do yourself a huge favor and buy this over a baby bjorn.

      Best Baby Item Ever!!

      Love this pack

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I'm a small woman at 5'-1" and I had some reservations about the comfort of lugging 30 lbs on my back. But as soon as I had this adjusted properly, I knew this would get the job done. Yes, I generally take a rest on our hikes, but I'm not in agony even after several hours, and the next day I'm not crippled. Without fail, every time people see us they have to comment on how cool the carrier is.



      When he sees this pack, he comes running. That says something to the comfort for the child. The leg stirrups are a nice touch, my nephew just won't use them yet. The key to this model over the regular one is the built-in sunshade. I use it all the time, sunny or not, mainly to keep branches away from his face in those tight spaces (or when I forget to duck). There's room for a water bladder, and more than enough room in the bottom opening when the kickstand is out to store diapers, food, and a few other supplies.



      I love that he gets excited when he sees the carrier. It's our special time together, and I hope that exposing him to the outdoors now will bring him a lifetime of enjoyment.

      Love this pack

      Great Product

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I used to carry my son in a Chicco Smart support backpack, but when he was about 6 months old he looked so uncomfortable when he fell asleep in it. With the Poco Plus, he is much higher on my back, and really enjoys the view. He is about 26 lbs. and fits in it just fine. Most importantly it is comfortable for me, and I guess him too, because he will still fall asleep in it.

      Whats the age range for this carrier?
