Good for short distance hikes. Seems a little rickety for lack of a better word. When on long hikes becomes very uncomfortable.


  • Plenty of comfort for the child


  • Poorly padded on the carry side

I don't know, maybe it's because I'm such a large person (6'2" 280 lbs) but this thing is rough on a back. When we hike I normally carry a fairly heavy pack, so I know it's not the forty pounds my son weighs.

If only hiking a few miles it's great. I certainly wouldn't go more than that. Absolutely couldn't beat the price as it was a baby shower gift.
