Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Comfortable Picked this up last month for our 1 year old. So far have gone for a 1 mile, 2 mile, and today 3.5 mile hike with our daughter. I could go 10+ with this pack no doubt and no have any complaints. My daughter never cries, and it's extremely comfortable in action. Love the Osprey has a lifetime guarantee should it break no questions asked whether you bought it in 1970, or 2016. Started to rain today about 1.5 miles in, popped out the sun/rain fly that came with it and it worked like a charm. Love all the adjustable options on this pack, really makes it comfortable for baby and me. Have humped many of ruck sack marches with USMC with full combat load, this pack it great! Trust me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The hip belt is a dealbreaker. I heard such great reviews of the Osprey Poco Plus. When I heard they were coming out with a new model in 2016, I was more than excited to order the newer model and figured it could only get better. When I received the pack, everything on it was as described. I loved all the new features and thought this was the one. When I took it out on a short 3 mile hike, the hip belt pressed against my hipbones to the point where it was painful to walk. I'm a larger guy at 5'10" 180lbs with a 34" waist, but the natural position of the hip belt seemed to be more fitted for someone with a 24" waist. I carried my 21 month old daughter (who weighs 25lbs), and it was a miserable experience solely due to the hip belt. I made sure the hip belt was fitted correctly, but still ran into the same pinching issue. In comparison, I have a 65 liter pack which I normally load 50lbs of gear and have never had any issues with the hip belt. After reading other reviews from other sources, it seems that this model has a hard plastic sheet inside the hip belt and that may be causing the discomfort. Ultimately, I had to resort to an older model, which was much more comfortable. When I returned the Osprey Poco AG Plus, the REI employee said that it seemed as if all the new models of the Osprey Poco AG sold have been coming back for a return. I hope Osprey corrects this issue. Then, it would be 5* hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this carrier My husband and I bought this pack to share while carrying our 8 month old on hikes. I loved it so much on our first hike that now I take our child and he gets the gear. It's very sturdy and well balanced. It doesn't shift as I change directions like other packs. Our child was very comfortable in it awake and asleep. I love all the pockets and thought that was put into a child's need for the pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed We did a lot of research, and tested one of our friends Osprey Poco Plus that was two years old and loved it. So we waited 2 months for our REI membership coupon, went to the store multiple times to test out the pack. And everything we heard was this pack was the most superior child carrier pack. I had read a couple of bad reviews about the 2016 model hurting peoples hips, most claim to be bigger individuals. But I am a slimmer person with a 30" waist and not much in the line of hips. I have used multiple different backpacks and child carriers and have never had this happen to me. I finally got the backpack I had been waiting for and went for a short 4 mile hike. Before the first mile I was feeling the pain and irritation. Half way through the hike I knew I had to take back the pack I had been waiting to get for months. When I got home, I noticed I had bruising on both of my hips. Osprey really dropped the ball changing the hip belt this year. Idk if it's worth waiting to see if they change the belt in the next model, or go ahead and try another child carrier. This pack is going back to REI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second one This is the second Osprey Poco I have bought for my daughters. I bought the first one 2 1/2 years ago and it proved to be extremely useful and sturdy My daughter, son in law and grandson all loved it. My grandson spent many many hours sleeping in it. I proved itself very durable and safe as on a short hike one day my daughter slipped and tumbled down an embankment. She ended up with a few scratches and bruises but my grandson didn't have mark on him and slept through the whole ordeal. So my other daughter is having another boy soon and I will make sure he also has the same comfort and safety that the Osprey Poco delivers. There are a few improvement to the 2016 version: Entry into the seating area now opens from either side. It already had a lot of storage but the new version has even more storage on the back and better access., Sun shade fastens a bit differently( some like it, some don't). There are other changes and improvements but i still would of bought the Poco even if it was exactly the same as the first one. Almost forgot it is great for taking the baby hiking. I mean real hiking not just a stroll through the park. A 5 star + product, keep it in good condition and there is a good used market for them. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Used this for the first time yesterday. Took our 1 1/2 year old son on a 5 mile hike to a waterfall. He was extremely comfortable and enjoyed being able to go places we wouldn't typically be able to take him. My husband said that it fit well and was very light weight. After reading some other reviews about the hip straps hurting, he said he could see how it could hurt if you wore it wrong. I was also very please with the assistance I received when in the store. I went without my husband and the women there was very attentive. She helped me fit the pack to my body and put a 10lb weigh in it for me to see how it fit with weight in it. Very pleased all around. We were also impressed when we realised the chest strap had a built in whistle on the clip. This was something we didn't see advertised but is an extra plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Child Carrier I bought this backpack in preparation for hiking in Colorado. I did a test run in my neighborhood to adjust to my comfort. Very well designed, conformable, and lots of little storage compartments for the extras needed when hiking with a 11 month old. The almost toddler loved the ride and fell asleep in the pack, might possibly need some sort of a pillow to keep the head from bobbing not sure one that one. Something else to point out, this pack has a compartment that is able to hold the the Osprey 100 oz. water bladder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice gear I bought this three weeks ago. Used it for several hikes in arches national park. Carried my 2 1/2 year old and he loved it. The stirrups were awesome. He slept quite well even in it. My one complaint is that the hip belt was tight, but I think it is due to my size. 215 lbs, I am sure it would be amazing for smaller frames. But as is I don't have any regrets and it was the best one I tried out.

What are the added features above the standard Poco AG??

Asked by: MattG
Just bought one last night. Compared standard Poco AG and Poco AG Plus. Did not look at the Premium. Went with the Plus. Main differences I saw in the Plus: - Larger lower zippered storage compartment. - Additional zippered upper storage compartment. - Additional side storage pockets. - Medium sized zippered storage compartments on hip supports/straps (this was the selling point for me; I can easily reach small items without a need to put them in my pockets or have someone else carry them for quick access.)

Would this pack fit someone that is 5 ft tall.

Asked by: Ruckus
The most important measurements to take into consideration when sizing a backpack are the torso length and waist size. REI puts these measurements in the specs tab on backpacks we sell. The link below is a great article on how to find your torso and hip size for a backpack.
