  • One of our best baby purchases. We use it hiking a couple days a week and even just for walks around the neighborhood. It’s easy to adjust and fits great! Jul 22, 2021

  • Comfy for adults wearing it and for tots riding in it! My daughter loved having a higher vantage point. May 19, 2021

  • This is amazing! My son giggles every time he’s in it. I live he’s secure, he loves being high enough to see his surroundings. Structure comfortable for longer hikes. Feb 13, 2021

  • I use this pack to carry my daughter around the zoo. It is easy to adjust between my husband and I when taking turns. Super light weight, easy to fold and carry around. Nov 28, 2020

    Holds a lot of stuff and a lot of toddler, but is very heavy for long hikes and gets really sweaty Sep 15, 2020

  • Love love love these carriers! Great for fairs, hiking, anywhere a regular baby carrier might make you and baby hot.. this will not! I still use this with my toddlers! it disperses the weight well! Sep 06, 2020

    My sister has used this for both of her children, and is still using it for her almost 5-year-old. It is a great thing to pack for international travel. It is a lot easier to navigate than a stroller. Jan 17, 2020
