MEC Happytrails Child Carrier Backpack - Infants to Children


See available carriers


This MEC Kid Carrier features a real backpack suspension system – with a lushly padded hipbelt, and a shoulder strap attachment point that is infinitely adjustable for any user up to 183cm in height – making your child easier to carry in the backcountry.

The 5-point child-restraint harness is the safest we know of, and its straps are fleece covered for comfort. The diaper bag clips off to become a daypack. A sun hood is included at no additional charge. Happy trails!
