    Poco AG 20L Kid Carrier

    The Osprey Poco AG Kid Carrier makes packing your little adventure buddy as comfortable as possible thanks to a full-wrap aluminum frame, tensioned mesh backpanel, and soft harness system for supreme comfort. You'll also appreciate the adjustable hipbelt that can be dialed in to deliver a precise fit for you, because you'll be the one doing all the hard work.

    To be sure your kid stays as comfortable as you do, Osprey included a secure and fleece-lined harness that can be adjusted as your kid grows, and threw in removable stirrups with safety leg loops to be sure your precious cargo stays on board when the trail turns steep. When it's time to let Junior explore the mountain, the Poco can be easily set down on the wide base, and even has a locking footbar to keep the pack upright so Junior doesn't end up face down in the dirt. Toss plenty of snacks and juice in the zippered main compartment and be sure to throw your camera in the additional large zippered pocket so you can catch that precious moment when your kid discovers deer scat tastes nothing like raisins.

    • Carry your little adventure buddy along in stable comfort
    • Anti-Gravity suspension system evenly distributes weight for comfort
    • Lightweight aluminum stays provide load stability
    • Mesh shoulder harness and backpanel combine for all-day comfort
    • Fleece-lined Exoform harness adjusts easily for growing kids
    • Fully framed and padded child cockpit protects your precious cargo
    • Built-in sunshade adds protection against harsh UV rays
    • Base is extra wide and has a locking foot bar for stability
    • Item #OSP004V

    Heavy, but comfortable. Best I've found

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I was gifted the Poco AG Plus, which has a bit of additional storage, but is functionally the same as the Poco AG.

    Every kid-carrier pack I've tried is heavy, and this one's the same. 7 Lbs is a big pack. But this one is as comfortable as it gets for me. The adjustability let me get a perfect fit, and that makes longer hikes with the kid quite pleasant. The straps are padded, but not so much as to be bulky. The kid carrier section is easily adjusted to the quick growth of a toddler. And its relatively well padded so when they inevitably fall asleep it's on a padded surface.

    We now use this instead of a stroller at events and things where getting around with a stroller would be a pain. Its got enough storage to keep what usually goes in the diaper bag, and it collapses down relatively small when its not in use.

    My only real complaint is the hydration setup. You really have to fish the bladder down into the "anti gravity" back system, and then your water gets hot quicker than in other packs because its literally touching your back when the bladder is full. Thats not enough to make me wish for a different pack, just something I'd like to see change on future versions.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Osprey always pays attention to the details and they thought of everything with this carrier. Highly recommend to anyone who is trying to get their kiddo out in nature early and often!

    great pack for hiking with baby

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    This backpack will not disappoint. It is lightweight, comfortable and perfect--even for a 6-month old who is on the small side. Looking forward to many more hikes with our little one in this pack.

    Feels like the best of the best.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I picked this up as a gift for a couple of close friends who recently had a baby. She is still a little small for it but it will not be long until the whole family can get out again. I will update with a better review once they get some use out of it.

    Envy of the baby shower.

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

    I bought this as a gift for a BFF's recent baby shower. She yelled when she opened the gift. Needless to say, it was a hit. My friend and her husband tried it on and examined all of the pockets and adjustable features and couldn't stop smiling. This was a big wish list item and they are both super excited and happy about it. Osprey rarely disappoints.

    Great support!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This backpack provides great support for your back, and great support for the baby in the back. We look forward to many hikes with our family

    Simply The Best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I purchased this carrier for my wife a year ago. I was hesitant, but after countless miles from the mountains to the local park, I can tell you that this is simply the best carrier out there and worth every penny. Extremely well designed and handles the load perfectly. This pack has allowed us to travel to places not imaginable with a small child.

    LOVE this pack - Tried Deuter first

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    I originally ordered the Deuter Kid Komfort II. I bought that pack based off of the excellent reviews. When I received it, I wanted so badly to love it that I almost convinced myself....until I had an opportunity to try on the Osprey Poco AG. After trying on the Osprey and looking at it’s features, I immediately knew that I should’ve gone with the Osprey. The Deuter is a great pack, as shown by all the great reviews, but the Osprey won out for me. Below are the reasons why:

    1) The fit of the Osprey was much better. I’m a thick guy, and found that the lower end of the shoulder straps of the Deuter dug into my sides which wasn’t comfortable at all. I also really really like the air vent on the back of the Osprey. The Deuter’s bulky padding didn’t add any extra comfort and would’ve been miserably hot once the heat of summer sets in.

    2) My kid loves the Osprey over the Deuter. I like how the Osprey provides a rigid capsule that he sits in without being sandwiched in by all the straps and padding. The shoulder straps on the Deuter were difficult to buckle and really pissed my little dude off when I had to wrestle him around to get it buckled. The Osprey’s shoulder straps and buckle are WAY more convenient and easy to buckle.

    3) Sunshades. Had to purchase separately for the Deuter, and it sucked. Unless the sun was directly behind us or above us, it didn’t do much for, it didn’t keep it’s shape very well and looked stupid when it was on. The Osprey is built in and provides excellent shade for my little dude. It keeps it’s shape and looks much better.

    I was very lucky that allowed me to exchange the Deuter for this pack even though I was just outside of the return window. THANK YOU!!

    The Deuter is a good pack, but I found the Osprey superior in every way.

    Ospery baby carrier

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I bought this as a gift for my friend who recently had a baby and he loves it! Here's what he has to say. "This pack was way better than expected. The weight distribution is great, I barely notice my daughter on my back. The extra storage is really nice if your just going out for a day hike. Best of all my daughter loves being in it."

    Incredibly well thought out

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Ergonomics for this carrier are amazing. They've taken soo much into consideration over the years. Wouldn't have thought less of Osprey though. All the way from the stand up stirrups for the little guy, to the well designed frame, compartments and structure are of outstanding quality and design. Shoulder straps and waist belt are very comfortable and add great comfort and stability to the whole pack. The ability to stand the pack up is great and the pack is very stable, but you do need to be aware of the size of the child and capability of child's movement before leaving them in the carrier.

    A major upgrade!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We have a 9 month old that we take everywhere with us. Prior to using this pack she was in a front carry Baby Lile (which we loved). Now that she's bigger, she wants to engage in her surroundings more and we want to go on bigger adventures. So it was time to step it up.
    After talking with other adventuring parents we decided to go with the Osprey AG Premium (we wanted the most carrying capacity to take it on back packing trips. )
    Since getting the pack we have hiked around 50 miles over much more rugged terrain than the front carry would safely allow. We can even do a little boulder scrambling! It's super comfortable. The firm hip belt allows for great stability. The kid cockpit is roomy and the stirrups lets our little one feel like she is part of the action.
    As for the storage capacity, we love the "trunk" and the removable day pack is small but we can put several extra layers in it. We have been playing around with different ways to attach backpacking tents or sleeping pads to the external frame, but may need to keep working on a final answer. 1 did do 1 small overnight backpacking trip, but my husband ended up carry all of our group gear, so we are still working on how to make this the backpacking rig.
    All and all we would chose this every time for its ease of adjustability, comfort for both parent and mini, and the stability and confidence it inspires to get out into more rugged terrain and environments (sunshade is also a major plus)!

    Great Pack

      We have a heavy 18 month baby using this pack. He seemed very comfortable and secure. We loved the built in sun shade, and have used it as rain protection too. We love the extra cargo space built in the bottom. It holds a lot. The only things we didn't love about it is the water bladder holder was a little difficult to get your water into and it seemed to fit my back better then my wife's.

      Everyone needs one.

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

      I bought this for a family member and now all the other family members with kids want one. Everyone loves it. It is super comfortable. My sister in law even wore it to more efficiently stack a wood pile so she wasn't chasing the little one around while doing. Many uses!

      Awesome pack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you're looking for a solid backpacking bag to put a child inside then look no further. This osprey bag is solid! Can go on a walk all day with my nephew who weighs 24lbs with no problem. It has great support for your back and shoudlers solid bag would recommend!

      Happy Kid, Happy Dad

        I'm a bigger guy - 6'2, 200 pounds. Have had this for 3 months. Use it for hiking around the bay area with my daughter - from around 1yr old. So far very happy with it. She's very comfortable in it, and I've carried her on 6-8hr hikes with it, definitely tired at the end of the day but manageable. The sun shade on it is terrific - pulls out and stows away super easily and provides great protection but still gives her a view. The cargo compartment is big enough for a diaper changing kit, a bit of food, foldable dog bowl, 2 water bottles, and 2 compressible jackets. Dog leas fits nicely in the hip belt netting. Seems well built/good quality. One FYI, not sure how this compares to other carriers (not sure if you can make a carrier small), but it's a big hunk of equipment - my wife is very small (100 pounds) and not sure she would love hauling our kid around in this thing.

        Hi David - I think she would love it! I do, although I am larger, this is one of the lightest carriers on the market, while still meeting the most rigorous safety requirements. The adjust-ability of the pack will fit her well I am sure.

        Osprey Rep

        Is this easy to pack in a suitcase if traveling? I need a good baby carrier for hiking but need to fly to the destination. Baby will be 9 months old.

        Hi I saw that Osprey poco recently had some recalls on child carriers manufactured between 2012-2014. What model is this pack? Thanks!

        We have a 6 year old daughter with Down Syndrome who weighs about 45 lbs. Would this carrier support her or do you carry another style that would allow us to haul her around on hikes?
        Thank you!

        Hi Kellie, maximum weight on the carrier is 48.5 pounds. Depending on how tall she is I think that this option would work for you. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any additional questions and I would love to help.
