    Osprey Poco Plus Child Carrier is rated 4.9444 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy we found Osprey! I researched every baby carrier out there :) I actually never came across the Osprey until we went to REI to try on the Deuters. We are so happy we found Osprey. The middle of the line bag (Poco plus) gives you just as many features as all of the other brands top of the line carriers (I.e. sunshade, padding, storage). There is a great storage space for the sunshade and it covers the baby so well! There is a big compartment for storage and a few little pockets. It seemed like the only difference between the poco plus an the premium was a detachable day pack...which we didn't not need for $60 extra. I think you can even attach your own day pack to the poco plus. My husband fell while snowshoeing and the baby was snug as a bug. I'm not sure i would recommend for babies much younger than 4 months, but it worked beautifully for our 8 month old. No regrets! I can't wait to use it a million more times!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Baby Carrier My daughter just turned 1 and we bought this in preparation for a camping trip to Zion National Park. It's a great, great baby carrier. The sun shade is awesome, the unit is sturdy and with an additional daypack can carry a lot. I even put my hydration bladder inside. There's almost nothing I don't like about this product. A couple notes: 1. The cell phone pocket on the front isn't going to hold a large smart phone. Keep that in mind. A Nexus 4 doesn't fit and something like an HTC One won't either. 2. The side belt pockets aren't terribly convenient to get to. They're okay, but not great. 3. I strongly suggest getting this model over the Premium. The only differences are that the Premium comes with a build on day pack and a changing pad. You're better off getting something like an Osprey DayLite pack which will connect to this carrier and will be useful when not using the child carrier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pack for child and parent I have been using the Poco Plus for about a month with our 9-month-old and it's working pretty well. This is the first Osprey pack I have owned and am impressed with the style and construction (they also manage to put their logo in about 10 different places). The pack has lots of options for adjusting to your and the child's size, although we aren't expert backpackers and so may need a trip back to the store to customize the fit. The baby seems to enjoy being in this carrier; the longest we've hiked so far is about 1.5 hours. We still use the Ergo for around the house and errands, but I'm looking forward to using the PP for walks and hikes as it gets warmer and she gets bigger. The Pros: Comfortable straps and easy to adjust for torso length Lots of mesh so everyone can stay cool Easy to get baby in/out and strapped in with over-the-shoulder harness Kickstand locks easily Built-in sun shade Easy to put on by myself Plenty of pockets Stirrups will be nice when she is bigger The Cons (mostly aesthetic): Shoulder and hip strap pockets are pretty small (iphone in a case just barely fits) Top zippered compartment has a narrow opening Bottom compartment is attached to frame so it gets compressed when kickstand is closed We also purchased the Deuter KCII since it was sale time and I wanted to try both; we ended up returning the KCII before taking it on a hike. For comparison's sake, here are the differences I noticed just from trying it on at home: KCII shoulder straps are more stiff and the torso adjustment takes a little longer I couldn't manage to get a snug enough fit for the baby for my liking (could be user error since they claim 6 months and up) Seat seems more comfortable for long rides but it might also get hot for baby (no mesh like the PP) Hip pocket is a better size

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Child Carrier I chose the Poco child carrier because I already have an Osprey pack that I used for hiking and camping which I am very pleased with. I wanted to buy a child carrier from a company that had experience with pack construction with leaves only a few companies which Osprey is one of. I have found every feature to be well thought and perfectly executed. The fit is just as comfortable as their hiking packs and very adjustable (I am 6'4" 230lbs and I have been able to get it to fit just right). The space underneath is enough for a day's worth of supplies. I also got the rain cover and it fits great and packs down small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Carrier! We use this carrier often on long walks, hikes and even bouldering. We worried that our 8 month old, chunky son would find the narrow seat uncomfortable, but he preferred it over the Deuters. It is lightweight and easy to use once you figure it out. The sunshade on the poco plus is a great feature, we love how easily it slides into place and then tucks back in. The bottom compartment is a great size and in combination with the other pockets holds everything we could need for a day hike. It took some getting used to, but our son loves riding in it now, especially since he sits so high up on my back. The only problem is that my wife finds it slightly uncomfortable because the straps are stiff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poco Plus saves a back! For those who have tried the front carriers, rejoice, there is a way to carrier your child and not kill your back. The Poco Plus has everything you need. I spent two weeks carrying my son around Venice, Italy and have not stopped using it. While it was ideal for Venice, don't bother taking a stroller there, too many bridges and stairs. This is so comfortable and easy to use, I use it every day for walks as well as just carrying my son around .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Osprey 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.
