Sherpani Rumba Superlight
I have to say we don't leave home without it. When we go hiking, our 3-year-old daughter, who weighs approx. 35 lbs, sits comfy and she loves it. My husband is 6'1" and I'm 5'3" and I carried her on my back (steep hills and down) for four miles with no problems, except my legs did get tired towards the end. The next day I felt great. Also the storage area is much bigger than expected which is a bonus. Really Comfy!! We love it!!
Max. Load Carried: 25 lbs
Height of Owner: 5'4"
This is a super comfy carrier that looks great. My only concern is that the sunshade is very hard to put on and looks flimsy. My toddler could easily rip the thing off and toss it on the ground. That being said, we have the replacement topper, which may not work as well as the original.

The Rumba Superlight is a lightweight alternative to the award-winning Rumba. It differs in having slightly less volume for storage and comes in one torso size with a maximum capacity of 55 pounds with child and gear. As the name implies, the Rumba Superlight baby carrier is considerably lighter than other baby carriers on the market, weighing in at just 4 lbs. 8 oz. - great for around town or ultralight backpacking trips. The Rumba Superlight features an exclusive Five Point Chest Plate that prevents slouching and holds your baby upright comfortably and securely with padded foam and five security straps. This baby carrier is designed to comfortably fit both men and women with torsos ranging from 17"-20" and comes with a sun/rain hood in the same color as the nylon on the carrier. Sherpani has switched its design slightly this year by using tubular aluminum framework, making the carrier more stable while on the ground.
The ultralight, backcountry-worthy Sherpani Rumba Superlight child carrier is sturdy enough for day hikes yet also suitable for trips to the market or summer festivals. Manufacturer recommends child weight not to exceed 50 lbs., with total load (child + gear) not to exceed 55 lbs. Fully padded bucket seat and sides; seat is fully adjustable to raise or lower child for your comfort, and provide views. 5-point chest plate is a soft foam harness that supports child securely with 5 fasteners, 3 that unbuckle for loading/unloading. Sewn-in shoulder harness and one-size waistbelt accommodate parents of similar size. Topper sunshade/raincover protects little one from the elements and guards against unruly branches; when not in use, stash Topper in bottom pocket against back of carrier. Removable foot stirrups let child balance him/herself in the pack or sit right up after they've slouched over to one side. Large mesh back pocket and zippered lower compartment tote toys and essentials. Carrier frame is made from a tubular aluminum bar that increases stability when sitting on ground. Constructed of ultralight nylon fabric with ballistic nylon reinforcements for durability.
If you're not stoked on a carrier that weighs as much as half-a-kid even when it's empty, grab the Sherpani Rumba Superlight Kid Carrier. This lightweight backpack adjusts for 17-20inch torso sizes, and the waist belt fits 29-42inch waist sizes. These adjustments keep you comfortable, while a Five Point Chest Plate holds your baby comfortably upright with padded foam and five security straps.
