    Only active members receive annual dividend notices.

    by fromGreat hiking pack with the kid Great pack, the only issue I had was after a couple miles of walking or hiking the childs seat falls and the child in down really low in the seat. I had to stop and adjust her seating.

    by fromWorks very well We purchased this so when we go to yosemite we can take the little one along. We wanted her to get used to it so we first started going on walks and instead of the stroller we would use this. Its a good construction and is easy to get the kid in and out of. the back pockets work well. We also use it when we go to Disneyland it sounds weird but its way better than a stroller. it makes walking around nicer. I would recommend this to everybody.

    by fromTypical Osprey Product Well thought out product. Lightweight enough, fully adjustable and stable. I guess for a longer hike the child should be a little older but our 4 1/2 month old girl loves to be in it on real short walks and around the house. Ultra padded and of course the Osprey guarantee is the best. (Not that this product will probably ever wear out like some that would most assuredly get more use). Overall very happy with the purchase. Taking it on vacation this summer.

    by fromOsprey Gets it Right I have two Osprey daypacks. This Child Carrier is just another example that Osprey has it right when it comes to a design that makes carrying the pack comfortable given the weight it is expected to carry. It also was well thought out in features: sunscreen, pockets for storage, kick stand. Construction is sturdy.

    by fromWe Enjoy Using This Carrier I've taken my almost two year old son (25 pounds) for several 3+ mile trail hikes, using this carrier. As soon as he sees this carrier, he beams out a smile and exclaims "Hike! Hike!" It's comfortable for both me and him. This product is designed so well, I am impressed each time I use it, by the abundance of very cleverly located zipped or elastic compartments, by the storage capacity of the large under-the-seat compartment, by the built-in sunshade, by the easily adjusted stirrups for the little one's feet, by the remarkably effective ventilation for the adult's back, by the stability of the carrier when standing alone on the ground, by the location of the handles + design of the shoulder straps that combine to result in the ease with which the carrier can be lifted from the ground (with the child strapped securely in) and slung around onto my back - without assistance from another adult. My only criticism relates to one instance when my son fell asleep during a hike and his chin abraded against some exposed nylon while he slept, somehow avoiding the softer cushioning that is intended to protect the child in that area. I love using this carrier.

    by fromGreat way to hike For its first use I went for two 6 mile hikes along the North Shore of Lake Superior during a camping trip. Lots of up and down hiking. I'm 6'5" and the carrier fit comfortably with the maximum height adjustment. The little one who is 13 months old liked it too, falling asleep during both hikes. The sun shade is a great addition and stores neatly in its own pocket. Nothing bad to say about this product! I hope to use it on many more hikes.

    by fromExcellent Child Carrier Pack The Poco Plus is excellent. I am 6' and 210lbs and the pack fits perfectly. It sits so well on my hips that I almost don't even feel the weight of the pack. My kid loves to be in it and often even falls asleep while out and about. The construction is sturdy giving me peace of mind that my kid is safe. The built in sunshade has come in handy many times. The pack has decent storage to hold all the kid necessities (diapers, food, sippy cup, etc.). I highly recommend this pack.

    by fromThey thought of everything! Hard to imagine a better child carrier. I got this about 4 months ago and have used it for a couple hundred miles now. My son was 12 months old when I got it. He loves riding in it and hasn't made so much as a peep in discomfort even after being in it for six solid hours (with one short stop for a diaper change). It's very adjustable and comfortable for me even with a large waist (about 42"). They really thought of everything. Hydration sleeve, storage, sun shade, fasteners for the rain cover, comfort, secure fit for baby they can't wiggle out of, etc. I have two minor complaints: the zippers on the main storage compartment get caught on the overhanging fabric. I would recommend Osprey trim that back on the next model. You'll have to be very careful not to snag the zippers. The other issue is only that I would have made the storage compartment a little smaller and added half an inch to the hydration sleeve width. A 3-liter Camelbak bladder will fit in it, but it's very tight. 2-liter bladders are much easier. But when you're carrying 35 pounds of baby+pack+water, you're going to drink up 3 liters pretty quickly :) Complaints not enough to ding the review any stars, so I still rate it 5 stars and highly recommend it!
