Child carriers











































































































































































Fun for the whole family

Love to hike? Bring your youngest family members along to jump-start their love of the great outdoors. Child carriers are a fantastic way to securely carry your baby while keeping your hands free. Check out MEC’s collection of child carriers to find one that meets your family’s needs.

Most child carriers feature a sturdy frame, a secure harness for your youngster, and an adjustable suspension system (like the ones on hiking backpacks). Some even come with zippered pockets to store snacks and other necessities for the day.

Add-ons and accessories

If you plan on using your child carrier frequently, look into accessories for child carriers to help make your baby more comfortable. Add-ons such as rain covers, sunshades or bug nets protect your tiny passenger from the elements.

Is your kid ready for a carrier?

Children need to be old enough that they can sit upright without assistance before they can safely ride in most child carriers. Check with your doctor if you’re unsure if your infant is ready for a carrier.
