I actually bought mine at a consignment store, but had seen one around and knew i wanted it... now i don't know what i would do without it. i am no avid hiker, but we like to be outdoors.

with the birth of our second (and last child) in december, we decided it wasn't worth it to buy the land yacht double stroller or double jogger, so have been using the front carrier with the older child in the stroller... my poor back!

have to say, i just got back from a 4 1/2 hr zoo trip with the 8 month old in the pack, pushing 4 year old in the stroller... only sat with the pack off for a 30 minute lunch break and i feel GREAT! will be taking the baby bjorn to the consignment store next week :)
