    • What are the differences between the 3 styles?

      The difference in the models is merely for the adult wearing the Freeloader.  The Freeloader is built using hiking backpack technology and should be fit to the size of your torso.  For this reason we sell a small, medium and a large. We have a sizing chart on each of our product pages.

    • What is the difference between the small med and larage

      The sizes are based on the length of the wearer's torso. To get an optimum fit and get the most comfort from your Freeloader Carrier, measure your spine using our size guide. (Look for a teal button on this page titled "Size Guide" or visit this link:
