Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, hip belt of doom for me I am a tall slender man. I do not have much padding around the hip area, and this pack really dug into my hips. The bottom edge of the belt is hard and jabs into you, and for the tightness to be correct it is pretty painful after a few hours walk. Maybe it's just my body type but this was a deal-breaker for me. Other than that, the pack is great and well designed, with integrated sunshade, foot straps and other adjustments. I opted for a Deuter pack primarily for this reason, and also when your kid falls asleep in this, the front pad is not as cush as the Deuter pad. There is also no side entry in this one, another killer feature deuter has over this. Just my personal opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carrier for the plus sized mom the biggest reason i chose this pack was the hip belt length. After 4 kids im pretty much an "apple" shape and was concerned that Id bend wrong in the Deuter and break the buckle. But the Osprey had at least 12 extra inches of slack, which makes me feel confident about wearing this pack. I also like the torso adjustment, its fast and easy to go from my extra short torso to my husbands extra long. The included sun shade is awesome, especially for the arizona weather. I have only worn it for about an hr and a couple miles but both baby and I are looking forward to the next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took on week long trip to multiple National Parks. We used this pack for a week of National Park visits last week for spring break. It was amazing. It was comfy for our 6month old and for myself while carrying him. The built in sun shade is a life saver! It also had a good amount of storage for bottles, diapers, wipes and more. Over all a great purchase for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Easy to Use My 2 year old son loves riding in this. He can hike so long on any given trail before getting tired, so I just throw him in the backpack for a bit until he is ready for more. Straps and child harness are both really easy to adjust. Sun shade is really convenient being integrated into the bag and their is enough storage for all the needed child stuff. Putting on the bag isn't to bad with one person, but can be a little awkward. The carrier part folds in for packing purposes or to make this a normal backpack, although as a normal backpack the storage would be lacking. Don't forget to leave the kickstand out when walking or you may hit someone next to you with it like I did (ouch!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive child carrier I purchased the Osprey Poco AG a few weeks ago after doing extensive research on- line and visiting a few camping stores. In the running were Phil and Ted's Escape and Kelty Journey and Pathfinder. (I actually borrowed a friends Escape and was very surprised that it was not the pack I ended up purchasing) I couldn't be happier with this "pack". Since purchasing my daughter and I (15mos, 22lbs) have hiked the MD Heights trail, parts of the C&O Canal, around Catoctin Mtn and Cunningham Falls. Additionally, I find myself using this around town for our daily walks with the dogs instead of using her stroller. I may trade this in to get the Poco Plus or Premium (as long as I can do so when 20% discount is offered) just for a little more storage and the removable pack. Hope this review helps. Cheers! PS Comparing Phil and Teds Escape to the Poco AG, I found that I just couldn't get the Escape to fit well enough to enjoy a long hike. The escape shifted a bit when my daughter would move around. The Poco frame and hip belt fit perfectly,distributed the load well, and I couldn't feel a thing when my daughter moved around. (I am 5' 10, and weigh about 210lbs)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Osprey vs Deuter We have 9 mos old twins, so we needed two child carriers. After some nominal online research (let's face it, there's not much free time with twins), we settled on the Osprey and the Deuter. We ended up with one of each and here is why: I am a 5'4" female with a small frame. I just couldn't get the Osprey to adjust to my torso length. It supposedly adjusts from large all the way down to x-small, but somehow I couldn't get the thing to actually stay on the the x-small setting, it kept slipping to small. And that's not small enough for me. So even just the 15 min I was wearing it in the store I could tell that my lower back was not going to let me go on a hike with this thing: since the backpack didn't adjust small enough, the top of the pack "hung back" too far and my lower back had to compensate for that. And coincidentally, the mesh back of the Osprey, while beautifully "aery," has no lumbar support at all, it's just a straight mesh back from top to bottom. I like the Osprey for its simple harness, large pockets, and included sunshade. The whole pack is very intuitive and I feel like twin 1 is very secure in it. My husband, who is 5'11", chose this pack b/c it's so easy to load the baby and it fits him very well. For the price, it's probably the best "bang for your buck" if you can make it conform to your body. I chose the Deuter for myself b/c it had the lumbar support I needed and is nicely padded. It allowed for better adjustment for my frame size and the extra padding in the lumbar region meant that as my lower back compensated for the backwards pull of the backpack, my back was supported. The compartments are as spacious as the Osprey, and unlike the Osprey the Deuter has a zippered pocket on the waist belt large enough for my phone. The harness is secure but I feel like the Osprey's might be more so. It is also more cumbersome than the Osprey b/c you have to go "digging" for the buckles somewhere down between the carrier and the front of the baby. The side entry is nice and maybe once twin 2 is older and able to follow some simple commands like "Hold still for a sec!" it might be easier to buckle him in. Or not b/c he'll also be larger. Twin 2 is rather small and only 1 pound over the lower weight limit, which might be why the shoulder harness doesn't feel as secure; his shoulders are simply too narrow. So I moved the chest clip to his back to hold the shoulder pads closer together and this works like a charm. I could also just have swapped babies and put the larger twin in the Deuter, but I relegated the 3 lbs heavier twin to my husband and his Osprey. The sunshade is an accessory that costs another $25 or so, which is another thing to consider with this pack. It fits nicely for stowing in the lower pocket of the pack once folded and doesn't take up too much extra room, assembles as quickly as the Osprey's, and provides plenty of shade. It has a small rain cover as well that folds out separately which the Osprey doesn't have. The latter only has a mesh side that is part of the sunshade every time it's deployed, so your child is always looking through a mosquito net of sorts. At the end of the day, my husband and I took the boys out for multiple hours of hiking and scrambling over boulders and both babies were secure and comfortable. And both babies loved it in their respective packs. Bottom line: the pack that fits you best is the best one for you. It doesn't matter how easy it is to use, what extra gimmicks and accessories it has, and how "secure" you feel your child is. If the pack is so uncomfortable that you dread putting it on your back, are in pain the entire time you are out trying to enjoy the hike, and can't move for 3 days after your trip, the pack's not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carrier for our quiver Little munchkin fits great in this carrier and we use it quite often. Construction durability seems to be standard Osprey: 10 of 10. Super easy to adjust the seat height as she grows taller, the sun shade is fantastic and the stirrups seem to be a neat addition. Haven't had the need to jam the pockets full of snacks for a long day hike, as the little one can stand about 1 hour hikes at max right now. That being said, there seems to be ample room...maybe 2 nalgene's in depth/size. I'd recommend this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great pack, not so great belt I love the pack, the materials, its construction, the integrated sun shade, the availability of storing a water bladder and the storage compartments. I don't like the hip belt, not very supportive. I need to chinch it really tight and at that points it hurts badly. I don't like the side pockets. The mesh is really hard and you can't fit much in there. All in all I'm not sure I can recommend it. If they change the hip belt it's definitely a winner

I've just bought a poco AG backpack. I love it, but the hip belt is really rough and not supportive.  I read that a new model with a better, more comfortable, hip belt should be released in 2017. If that is true, when should I be able to find it at REI ?

Asked by: Marco hiker
A small number of customers found the hipbelts to be stiff or uncomfortable, but this has not been a widespread issue. However, carriers manufactured after fall of 2016 now have dual density foam which may improve comfort.

What are the dimensions of the current Osprey Poco AG child carrier?  REI lists this pack's dimensions as "unavailable".  I am interested in how high the back sticks up.  Reference: Deuter III is way too high, may hit trees, beams, etc.  I am 5'6" tall.

This child carrier measures 29 x 15 x 17 inches.

Is this pack compatible with Camel Bak bladders, or does it require an Osprey branded bladder?

Asked by: Pope_Peanut_IX
Yes, I have a 70oz camelbak reservoir installed in the frame area, and I remove it for refilling. I'm sure a 100oz, or any other brand reservoir would fit too. You just have to work it in there by flattening the reservoir a bit.
