MEC Shuttlecraft Kid Carrier - Infants to Children


See available carriers


The Shuttlecraft is a fully-featured upgrade to MEC’s long-lived Happy Trails Kid Carrier. Our designers spent years streamlining the design and tweaking the features so it's simple to use and meets all current safety standards that other brands often bypass. The harness is padded, easy to adjust, and fits a variety of heights and back lengths. The back panel uses breathable perforated foam and mesh to keep it airy. The fold-out kickstand keeps it super stable for loading and unloading a wriggling child. The kid harness is super-soft, adjustable, and is colour coded to help you check that it's adjusted safely. Includes a removable sun hood, storage compartments and a rear-view mirror for catching all the backseat smiles as you go.
