Born for the outdoors.

Show your mini-you the beauty of trails and the joys of hiking with Thule's Sapling Elite Child Carrier. This carrier's fully adjustable suspension allows a customized fit for both parents, and breathable padding at the back panel, shoulders, waist, and child seat ensure comfort for babies and hikers. The backpack's main compartment is large enough for water, diapers, clothes, rain gear, and hiking essentials, and you can remove it for extra convenience once you've reached your destination.

Thule also equipped the Sapling Elite with a sleeve dedicated for your own hydration reservoir, and the sunshade deploys whenever your child might be getting a little too much sunshine. There's also a mirror so you can see the smiling face behind you, removable stirrups for baby feet, and adjustments at the seat to accommodate your ever-growing wee one for seasons. Stabilizer straps make sure your precious cargo doesn't loll to one side, and dual-access loading allows you to slide infants in from the side or top.

fantastic child carrier

    I bought this as a gift for my brother. My nephew loves it!! It has lots of storage places and its comfortable! My brother(6'0) and sister-in-law(5'4") can both wear it and have a snug fit. Great purchase and gift.

    Go Adventure with your little!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This was a gift for my friend for her new little one. She loves how comfortable it is on her back and the weight is perfect. Her daughter Sunny, really enjoys being in it. Keep adventuring and take your little one out with you!

    Go Adventure with your little!

    Best carrier

      Love this carrier. It's fits all types really well both myself (5'6) and my husband (6'2) can get a nice snug fit so there is not bouncing or rubbing. The deployable canopy is a must for year round hiking! We really liked all the extra storage this one comes with, plenty of space for extra diapers, food etc.
