Just what we needed!

I bought this for my husband who is 6’ 6”. He’s never been able to comfortably carry our toddler in a carrier before-the longer torso option was exactly what we needed and now our hikes are even better!

Not sure this is even a real company

I purchased the backpack for $320.00. But accidentally bought a size s/m. So I reached out to try to return it. It took a few follow up emails to finally get a response on how returns work. They don’t answer the phone either. The guy said they would invoice me for shipping and then send a label but he gave me the instructions to send minus the label so I paid $40 to ship it back as fast as possible to make sure we got it in time. As i said, original mistake was on me. I never get confirmation that they got the pack and then I get an invoice for $17 to ship it. I try calling 3 or 4 times in 2 day period and no answer. Finally I get a response that they did get it, and they did ship out another pack (still waiting on it). They have me some lingo about why I have to pay for the cost of shipping but said to ignore the invoice. I buy a lot of stuff and I have to tell you, this is crazy. I can’t see how or why anyone would invest in this company. The customer experience is awful.

Perfect for our kiddo

My hubby and I are pretty avid hikers and needed something bring the toddler in. Pros Easy to use even while wearing it. High weight limit. Stirrups were a plus. Read a review about how the stirrups didn't always come in the standard pack so I was happy they do now. My daughter was comfortable enough to fall asleep on the hike. This happened 2 of the first 3 times we used it. I was comfortable too. I am fairly well versed in hiking packs. This is basically the same. Cons. I wish I had trained up a bit more before our 6 mile hike. I just sort of went for it and my muscles were soar for the next two days. That subsided on my next hike. But wish the company had maybe given me a heads up to work out more prior to hitting the long trail. All in all I would recommend it if you like to hike on trails the with your toddler.

Excellent Carrier, Excellent Customer Service

We used this carrier to carry my 45 pound son during a road trip to Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Park. It took a little bit to get the carrier comfortable for my wife and I, but once we figured it out, it was definitely better than the previous 2 carriers we've tried. I was impressed with the quality of the materials and how solid the construction is. I highly recommend this carrier, it is well worth the price!

Great pack

We are happy with the product. Very expensive though as a Canadian with the exchange, shipping and duty (cost us $600 CAD!). Wish there was a Canadian Distibutor
