Osprey Poco AG Plus Child Carrier

When your back and hips hurt, hiking isn’t fun. Especially when you’ve got a squirmy little one on your back. So Osprey incorporated their acclaimed AG (Anti-Gravity) backpack suspension system into the Poco AG Plus child carrier. Lightweight aluminum stays provide load stability and the mesh shoulder harness and backpanel combination keeps you comfortable for the long haul. (Max load – 48.5 pounds.)

Osprey’s Poco AG Plus.

 

And of course, child safety and comfort is paramount. The child cockpit is fully framed and padded and the butterfly harness is fleece-covered. When you set the pack down, the base is extra wide and has a locking foot bar for stability. Two large, reinforced grab handles ensure secure pickups. The child seat has built-in safety leg loops. The Poco is so well-designed that you forget you’re hauling 20 or 30 extra pounds on your back. And it’s so comfortable for our tester’s one-year-old, that a hike in the Poco is guaranteed quiet time. Talk about a win-win.
