    You'll only carry them 'til they're eighteen.

    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.

    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.

        Cadillac of Kid Carriers

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is not the pack your parents used to tote you around in when you were a little kid, this pack has a ton of tech built into it and it is worth a little extra coin. The adjustability is awesome and the kid carrier holds our little guy perfectly. The harness system is perfect for our son and comfortable for us as we carry him. The shoulder straps and waist belt fit great for both my wife and I and are comfortable for longer hikes. There is very little sway when snugged up properly. It is great for walks around the neighborhood or bagging peaks with your little buddy.

        Justin - Excellent! Thank you so much! My little guy LOVES ours and when he sees it, he starts to hyperventilate with excitement, because he knows an adventure is right around the corner!

        The kid stays in the (hiking) picture

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

        Friends of ours who live to be outside just had a kid. Obviously they are stoked, but the thought of having to tone down the outdoor activity was daunting. Problem solved! They can cart the little dude everywhere. Pack is super comfy with plenty of space for all the stuff a youngin needs. The little stand that pops out is also a huge bonus.

        Love it

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Gave this to my Sister and Brother in-law for their little girl. They have loved it so far. It takes a bit of adjusting to get it to fit right but once it is adjusted it is awesome and comfortable. She loves the sunshade and where the kid sits its soft and comfy. She like all the mesh because it keeps her girl cool and don't make her sweat, it's super breathable. Its so comfy her little girl took a nap in it.

        Love it

        Beyond comfortable!

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

        The new Poco AG is a breakthrough when it comes to kid carrier technology. I threw it on with my son Apollo in tow, and expected comfort, but not like this. I have been a rep for Osprey for 22 years (full disclosure), and I can honestly say that the AG technology that Mike Pfotenhauer and his design team developed takes carrying a load (whether is a 20 pound kiddo in the Poco AG or a 40 pound load of gear in the Atmos AG) will blow your mind!
        Here is my wife Anne demoing the pack in our kitchen, ready for a spring hike on Saturday in the foothills outside of Denver.

        Beyond comfortable!

        Brother loves it

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

        Bought this for my new nephew so he can share in the outdoors and it seems to have gone over pretty well. My brother says the level adjustment within the seat so my nephew will be able to enjoy it for some time. My brother also reports that it's really comfortable when carrying a future outdoorsman.

        David - Thank you for passing on the review from your bro. I am just going to be able to get out to use it soon, as my little guy is now 6 months old and sturdy with his head.

        Thanks for writing!

        Unanswered Question

        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.
