Hi Is the back strap/clip (on the child harness) adjustable to slide down to be positioned mid back/torso for example instead of up by the shoulders- I'm scared my child with low tone would "slump" out of it and fall off. Thanks
Yes - the back horizontal strap has the ability to slide up and down depending on the need and height of the child. Thanks for your question!
My grandson has quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy everything is so expensive for him is there any discount for this my husband would like to go for walks with Jackson and me but he is 5 years old and we are senior citizens on a fixed income

My son has cerebral palsy and is getting a bit heavy (~50 lbs) for riding on my shoulders. What are the "special needs discounts" your site says to ask about?
Please email us at email@example.com and we can discuss the discount!
What is the difference between the small medium and large?
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: https://myfreeloader.com/pages/size-guide)
Fantastic! We are currently stationed overseas for 3 years and trying to travel as much as possible. With a 2 year old this can be a challenge but the Freeloader carrier has been a game changer! It is super easy to take on flights and store in the overhead compartments. It is also a breeze to wear even when the child is not in the carrier which is my biggest complaint for the other bulky child carriers. My daughter also seems so much more free in the Freeloader whereas in the other carriers she seemed so confined and seemed annoyed that her arms were often pinned in. My only wish is that is had a thin lightweight bag to pack it for taking in on the plane to contain the straps. We LOVE it and are excited to take it on our many adventures to come!
We bought the carrier for a 2 week trip to several national parks. During the first week we hiked over 50 miles with a 40 pound kid in the carrier. We wouldn't have been to do all we did if it wasn't for the carrier. There are a few options I'd like added (water bladder storage, more storage in general) but otherwise it is a great product. It folds up easy for transport and the kids love riding in it.
We have a 60# 4 year old and were a little skeptical, but this carrier definitely did the job! We hiked up Glacier Point to Avalance Lake this carrier was a amazing! Our 4 year old never takes a nap, but was so worn out from all the walking she did that she even fell asleep in it! Worth every penny!!! On the down side, one of my older children forgot to grab the freeloader sometime after we went through security and right before we got on our plane. So unfortunately lost and found has still not found it and some else is probably enjoying now!
The freeloader is great and does what it sets out to do. I never would have thought my 3 year old would have been able to fall asleep in it but he does every time! The only thing I would suggest is that the company should make a tutorial video... not on how to load a child but on how to adjust the straps.
