Lightweight and well designed. I don't believe there are any features that they didn't incorporate to make this pack perfect for hiking with a little one.
- Adjustment straps
- Storage space
I personally love how relaxed she can be in there which makes it easier for me to focus on my hiking. I have done several 10+ mile hikes with her on my back and she does great, always comfortable and able to catch some z's.
I use a 3L hydration bladder that doesn't seem to give her any issues riding in the back as well, considering she's a little bigger than when we first started hiking with her; she's a 2-year-old so much heavier, but I'm still able to stay comfortable myself even with all the added weight.
I have used almost every feature in this pack except the changing pad. The removable backpack is nice for when we go hiking and then decide to go to the beach right after, super easy just to remove the pack and take it with us.
The only downside that I have discovered to this pack is that when we go for long backpacking trips and pack up the car with all of our gear and whatnot, the pack tends to take up the most room. It makes it more of a challenge to fit things properly in the car. That only really becomes an issue depending on the car though, so not a really big issue.
