Child carriers to bring your little ones on adventures

Being a new parent doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the outdoors. A child carrier lets you stretch your legs and get back to the trails you love while introducing the newest family member to the beauty of nature.

Child carriers are specialized hiking packs designed to carry the most precious cargo of all: your child. Outfitted with a harnessed seat and ample padding, it’s a bit like giving a piggyback… only way more comfortable. Shoulder and waist straps keep your kid close and distribute the weight. The kickstand keeps things stable as you load and unload, even with a wiggly passenger.

Comfort, safety and convenience are engineered into every child carrier. Hipbelt pockets hold snacks, toys and other must-haves. Reflective details increase visibility at night. Hydration-compatible packs make sure you’ve got enough to drink while you’re out. And adjustable straps mean that both you and your child will be locked in tight, even as your child starts to grow. Finally, don’t forget the accessories – some packs come equipped with a sun hood, but if they don’t getting a sun roof or rain cover attachment will keep your child comfortable and protected from the elements.
