The built-in sunshade, butterfly harness, adjustable child seat (complete with safety leg loops), and adjustable and removable foot bar further contribute to the comfort of your favorite hiking partner.

Great kid carrier

I've used it several times
True to size
6` 0"
275 lbs

We had a different pack that my wife loves but the kid was going to outgrow it soon and it fit me horribly so we bought this Osprey pack. I’m a bigger guy with big shoulders and it fits me well. The kid is comfortable in it and loves being in it. There’s padding in key spots so he doesn’t smack his head of anything hard. Plenty of places to put stuff, so no need to bring a second pack or a diaper bag. Highly recommended. Only gripe would be I wish the shoulder straps were a bit wider, they dig in slightly, but the more I use it the less I seem to notice any issues.

Love love love!

This is hands down the best child carrier I have owned. It fits both me and my husband very well. Our son falls asleep in it so quick. Its a perfect addition to the family. It takes the weight off your shoulders and back (unlike other carriers) If you’re debating on getting it, just do it!

Love It!

I've used it several times
True to size

We just got this and have gone on three day hikes. It is immensely comfortable for carrying our 7 month old, we had been using a baby b j o r n front carrier which is great for short bits but would eventually hurt our backs on longer hikes. This carrier doesn’t hurt my husband or my back at all. The baby loves it and talks or sleeps the whole hike. Also love the sun shade. The storage is great also, really looking forward to some longer hikes when summer comes. The only 2 complaints, and maybe we will figure these out with more use, the carrier won’t adjust to the ‘Large’ setting for my husband, the bars inside are to stiff to let it slide all the way up. And also the straps on the front hips are very long, excessively so, that you have to tuck them in to the front straps so they don’t dangle. Otherwise it’s totally worth every penny, and also backcountry is awesome we got it in 3 days from ordering.

hip belt incompatible with my bodytype

I've now purchased both the 2019 poco AG + .(antigravity suspension) and the 2020 Poco + with the airspeed suspension. Returned both. A stellar product in every way except the hip belt. The 2019 was excruciating after a few miles and then put my legs to sleep; the 2020 was slightly better, but still brutal despite multiple adjustments. Too stiff, unpadded and constraining for me.. I've carried heavy packs from multiple brands for many years without issue. I'm a wirey/skinny 5'7" 125 lbs male (posting on wife's account). Kid is 23lbs or so. My taller/heavier but still wirey neighbor had a similar experience with the AG. I imagine it fits many people very well though, and if that had been the case for me I would have given the pack 5 stars.
