Just because you have a new baby doesn't mean you have to forgo hiking with your little one until he or she fits into a kid carrier. The Sherpani Emi Baby Carrier has a front pouch for carrying your child backward or forward. Plus, unlike other kangaroo-style carriers, the Emi has a swivel hip-belt and a detachable daypack for snacks, diapers, and other trail necessities. Having a backpack counterbalances the front pouch, which evens the pressure on your back and makes it more comfortable than other front carriers. The backpack holds your hydration reservoir (not included), so you don't have to take the pack off a pain in the rear when carrying a baby to get to your water.

A new take on the traditional infant baby carrier, the Sherpani Emi Child Carrier has a unique design that features an attached backpack to keep all of baby s necessities close at hand, yet out of the way. With the Emi, the baby rides comfortably in front of the child carrier while the baby's gear is stowed in the backpack, leaving hands free for other duties. This newly design child carrier is not only convenient, but the backpack acts as ballast, with equal weight distribution on front and back. Translation: This baby carrier is comfortable for both baby and parent.
