Lots of avoidable back and forth

We have not gotten to use the carrier yet, as we had to buy the extra straps after receiving the carrier and discovering that they were not long enough to hold my son in. I really wish the website gave measurements for the straps that hold the child in. We had to pay shipping for the straps, only to receive an email saying that we have to ship the carrier back in order for the straps to be sewn onto the carrier. They did say they would reimburse the shipping we were charged for the straps, and they will cover shipping the carrier back to us, but we still have to pay to ship it to them after already paying shipping for the carrier in the first place. It's just a lot of back and forth that could be easily avoided if there was a notice on the website to measure the child straps like there is for the size of the carrier.

Excellect carrying, zippers need work

Perfect for carrying the worlds heaviest toddler. Found that the side pocket zippers wont work when work, have to take the pack off to unzip or zip them. Not a huge deal but it makes pulling the phone out for pictures on hikes a hassle when alone

We love this carrier - it’s given us tons of freedom!

This carrier has been perfect for our bigger than average two-year old, who at 24 months already weighs 37 pounds. We desperately wanted to go on longer hikes with our kiddo, but traditional hiking baby carriers max out around 40 pounds, making it not worth the investment. The Freeloader gives us a much longer window for use - plus, it’s comfortable on (especially if you’re familiar with properly wearing hiking packs - otherwise it might take some getting used to), evenly distributes weight and my kid seems comfortable too. We’d definitely recommend!
