3.0 out of 5 stars Even when you order the darker backpack the light one gets shipped to you.
By Ashley on March 11, 2018
So I gave it a three just because the color we chose was the dark one and we got the light one shipped to us. Not a big deal so that’s why we didn’t return it. But other than that my husband said he liked it. It felt confertable. And my son didn’t cry at all. He even fell asleep in it on our way down the hike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Husband loves it
By gwynromero on July 15, 2020
Got this for our summer camping trip. Our daughter is a tall 19 mos and has outgrown her other carrier. Husband is a big guy and this pack fit well, felt sturdy, and the kid liked it also! Its nice that she sits up so high and has a better view. And the pack holds a lot of stuff.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 29, 2020
A little fiddly. Take some time to get to know how are the straps and adjustments work. My advice would be that you act confident when putting your child in. And take your time in putting on and getting it off.

Loads of carry space. Really please with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Da ist der Junior sicher Aufgehoben
Reviewed in Germany on March 5, 2019
Da wir nach der Geburt unseres Juniors wieder aktiv werden wollen und sich der Kinderwagen im Gelände eher schlecht macht, ist eine Babykraxe das einzig richtige. Nach dem man in Ruhe alles für den sich selbst als Träger eingestellt hat und da gibt es wirklich einige Riemchen, Gurte, Rückenhöhe, Schnallen usw., kann es losgehen das Kind mal Probesitzen zu lassen und dann ebenfalls alle Einstellungen vorzunehmen. Ich muss ehrlich sein, ich dachte ich setzt meinen Sohn da rein und gut aber so ist es nicht es gibt zum Glück sehr viele Sicherheitseinstellungen damit den lieben kleinen auch nichts passiert. Mein Sohn ist jetzt 9 Monate alt und kann schon selbständig Sitzen. Das wird auch vorausgesetzt.
Ich kann es auch nur so anraten, denn da das Kind auch in der Babytrage sitzen muss.
Auch zu empfehlen ist es am Anfang nicht die längsten Spuren zu gehen, denn es ist für die Kleinen anstrengender als man denkt, denn auf einmal gibt es so viel zu sehen das es vorher nicht gab und das starre Sitzen nicht zu vergessen.
Was kann ich also zusammenfassend sagen:
+ Sicherheit für das Kind
+ genug Einstellmöglichkeiten für den Träger
+ ausreichend Stauraum für Windeln, Esserei, Trinkerei und was man sonst noch so für eine Tagestour braucht
+ Rückspiegel für den Rückblick
+ abnehmbarer Daypacker damit auch der Partner was zum tragen hat
+ Sonnenschutz für die Kleinen
negativ ist einzig nur, dass der Regenschutz nicht dabei ist. Aber das ist auch nur ein kleiner Makel.
Kann ich voll empfehlen wenn man keinen Kinderwagen, keine Trage oder Tuch benutzen möchte.
