Osprey Poco AG

The Osprey Poco AG offers a fabulous child carrier. Osprey incorporates its super comfortable suspension system with ventilated back panel, hipbelt, and shoulder straps. Many features make this a highly coveted child carrier. With my growing quiver of active grandchildren born to my adventurous children, I decide to purchase a few child carriers. The Osprey Poco AG was my first purchase this past December. There are several models in the Osprey child carrier line. I opted for the entry level pack,… Full review

Osprey Poco Premium

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. My wife and I hike all the time with our daughter and she absolutely loves riding in this pack. It's super comfortable for her and has so many pockets to store her toys and baby gear. 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… Full review

Osprey Poco

This product is well made with great supporting accessories. There are too many child carriers that are made for a stroll in the parking lot to the trailhead and back to the vehicle. Once parents or grandparents leave that parking lot it is critical that the equipment used provide the additional safety and protection needed in the outdoors. Of course it is also critical that the unit be comfortable for both the youngster being carried and the adult doing the carrying. Previous to having children… Full review

Deuter Kid Comfort III

Very solid and comfortable for me and my little one! Super adjustable to get the right fit, and plenty of storage space. This is a really solid all-around child carrier. My toddler has really taken to this ride, and enjoys being on the trail. So much so that regular naps are not uncommon when she needs to in the pack. I'm a taller guy (6'5") and I had seen somewhere that there may be challenges, but this still has a really good fit. There is an adjust for varying sizes, and accomdates me well. This… Full review

Osprey Poco Plus

Our little guys loved going on adventures last year in it at six months old. And we've already gotten out a few times this late winter/early spring with our now 18 month old. He LOVES being in the pack and it makes getting around with him a ton easier. This will be season two for our Poco Plus.

Kelty FC 3.0

Pros It's comfortable, my kiddo likes ridding in it. Plenty of pocket room for carrying diapers,snacks and such. It comes with a sun shade and changing pad. The ability toadjust the child harness is fast and simple. Cons The lumbar height adjustment pin is held in place by a spring. But the location is in a bad place, my kid can kick the pin causing the pack to drop a notch or two. It’s a bit aggravating when my 25 lb kid causes that sensation of miss-stepping a curb. Simple fix is to remove the… Full review

Deuter Kid Comfort II

We recently bought the Deuter Kid Comfort 2 backpack child carrier. We bought this pack to carry our 6-month-old daughter on our frequent hikes. The Kid Comfort two has brought our family closer together and our daughter seems to love riding in it. Anytime we put her in the pack she smiles real big and begins to kick her feet in excitement. She is constantly looking in every direction on our hikes and has not fussed or become upset. My daughter asleep in the Deuter Kid Comfort 2. Take note of the… Full review

Deuter Kid Comfort II

We got the Deuter Kid Comfort II on the recommendation of a friend and we couldn't be happier. It's comfortable to carry, has a hydration bladder pouch, and enough storage that if I was hiking by myself I'd have enough room for gear/diapers/food. My husband and I often switch who carries it and it's super easy to change the torso length and adjust the straps. We found it be much more comfortable to carry than this other Kelty carrier we borrowed from a friend. It seems to be very comfortable for… Full review
