    Ask a Question
    • Hi, Is the child supposed to sit facing the carrier or facing backwards. If the former, how do you ensure that the restraints don't easily slipped from the child's shoulders? Thank you Cesare

      The child sits facing the same way as the adult wearing the Freeloader.  There is a five point safety harness plus to additional straps that go over each leg.  The shoulder straps should not slip off of the child's shoulders.  To ensure this, on the child, the horizontal strap that connects their two shoulder straps needs to run across their skapulas.  This keeps the shoulder straps in place on the child.

    • Hi, how long would it take to shipp it to Germany ?

      Typically it takes between 6-8 business days to get to Germany.  Occasionally, Customs will delay it a bit more however, that happens very infrequently.

    The Freeloader has been just what we were looking for. Our family has always like being outdoors and going on hikes. It gives us the ability to continue going when in the past my son needed to be carried and we turned around. The pack itself is comfy and feels like my Osprey pack I use for backpacking. I just wish I had this when my daughter was younger.
