Rated 5 out of 5 by from we love our pack! After researching packs, we settled in this one because we liked the foot straps. We were hoping it would slow our wiggly son to feel like he could shift his weight and get comfortable. He loves the pack and even fell asleep in it once! I have used it on long hiking (long with a toddler being 3 hours) and on shorter walks around the neighborhood. The cushioning, foot straps really do make it comfy for him. Some have complained about the hip belt but I don't find it to be uncomfortable. I am 5'1 and wear the pack on the smallest settings all around, and I would assume that fit really matters. The pack is very adjustable and I find it to be comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hip Belt is a Deal Breaker Bought this a week ago and it is going back to rei. After a Couple of short 3 mi hikes the hip belt had cut into my hips, and when I say cut I do mean break the skin and blood. I have never had this issue with backpacking packs with as much or more weight in them. I had also previously been using an older Kelty carrier a friend had given us without any problems on much longer hikes. It was also difficult to get a full hydration reservoir in the pack, but I was able to get a camelbak reservoir in. Did like the compartment where the child sits. Easy to get my 18 lb 9 month old in and out. Liked that the pack flattens. The sun shade was nice too, just raise and lower with the bottom compartment empty to avoid jamming.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hip Belt is Awful, Awful, Awful! I just bought this pack during the Memorial Day sale, 2017. In less than 2 miles the hip belt was becoming unbearable, and by that I mean creating sores. I have a 33" waist and have worn multiple brands and types of packs. Never have I had an issue like this before. I've contacted Osprey and they're supposed to be sending new foam to fix the issue. REI, it would be awesome if you would send the new foam with the 2016 packs instead of leaving it to the customers to contact Osprey to fix this problem on our own. You know it's a widespread issue, contrary to what one of your staff responders indicated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Uncomfortable Hip Belt!!! I loved the previous model (2015) but this new model is really frustrating! The belt DIGS INTO YOUR HIPS and is so uncomfortable when hiking. I don't know who suggested it or why it was suggested to change the design of the belt. The previous design was so comfortable and is why I loved the 2015 model. The 2016 design is great other than the stiff hip belt. PLEASE go back to the 2015 belt. For this reason I am returning the 2016 model. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pack! This is both a great hiker and also better than a stroller. Super comfortable, and you can tell a lot of thought went into the design of everything. I use the removable backpack as a diaper bag when we aren't using it. Then I slap it on the carrier when I'm out with my daughter alone, as an added convenience. If you get a Spring 2016 backpack because REI can't guarantee the date of manufacture, and you find the hip straps uncomfortable, contact Osprey and they will send you the new foam!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Backpack is great, but AG not so much We bought this backpack as a transition from a soft carrier for longer hikes with our two boys. The backpack overall is great, but the AG didn't work at all for me or my husband. The AG hip straps dug into our hips which became painful on longer hikes. We sent it back for the non-AG version and are VERY happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pack but painful We bought this to be able to bring our 8 month old along on hikes and backpacking trips. It is a great pack but the hip belt is stiff and digs in the hips. I bought 2015 and 2016 models and i do like 2015 hip belt better. came on site to see if next years model was available to see if the hip belt changed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome Features!!! - Still carrying thin hip belt I just ordered/received on; Manufacture date was Jan. 2016. REI still carrying 2016 Poco. Hip belt does seem thin. Going to see how it goes. Kind of disappointed. I waited to buy it this year due to the complaints. Don't forget the 1yr REI Satisfaction Guarantee. Buy it, see if it works. If it doesn't, REI has your back. Aside from the hip belt, which may or may not bother you, the pack is Awesome! Easy adjusting, plenty of storage options, and lightweight!

Questions & Answers

Reviews of the 2016 model's hipbelt are concerning. When will the 2017 models be available to know if the issue has been resolved? I'd like to purchase a carrier for my 6 mo. old ASAP.

Asked by: rpeytonp
A small number of customers have 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.

How can I get a pack manufactured after fall 2016 with new dual density foam belt (ref Support answer below)? Had to return pack due to hip pain. Local store only has 11/15 packs and says there is no way of ordering new ones and to contact Osprey direct. 

Asked by: DisappontedDad
​Unfortunately that information is not available and we encourage you to contact the vendor Osprey.

What is the main difference between the poco ag, the premium and the plus versions.  Thanks. 

Asked by: Bgreenb3
The biggest difference between the three Poco AG models is gear capacity. The Plus and the Premium models will have more gear storage compared to the regular Poco. The Premium also features a removable daypack. All three models will have built in sun shade.

I see the Osprey packs have a removable drool pad. Is the child seat removable? My child is always having blowouts and wetting through his diapers and just wanted to have an easy wash seat if needed. 

Asked by: amorg
​The seat on this child carrier cannot be completely removed.

I'd like to buy this today with the member discount! But is the hipbelt problem fixed? In other words, am i guaranteed a post fall-2016 one with the dual density foam?

Asked by: RAHUL
Due to numerous variables, we cannot guarantee you will receive a pack manufactured after fall 2016.
