Back pack was so easy yo set up. I like how sturdy the whole thing feels when its on. My nephew has been loving the hikes. Only complaint I have is my nephews heavy. The little shade canopy two thumbs up. I will definitely buy from Albee Baby again.

Great design, but a bit heavy
I used a Kelty product when my kids were young. It was great. Light, easy to get the child on and off. Easy to clean. With a grand son here, I thought it would be a great addition. We live in NYC, and with subways, cabs, walking along streets, uneven pavement, etc. the pack is a great alternative to a stroller. There are much more serious packs for serious hiking (and much more expensive), but that's not what I was looking for. I looked around. Kelley still makes them (see Kelty Mijo Kid Carrier), but the local store had this Chicco model and I needed something quick. It's pretty good. Not as light as the Kelty I used to use (don't know the weight of their current carriers), but it's light enough and has a sun shade on top, which is a big plus. Price was great. The "kick stand" on the back is, in my opinion, a must. Without it, t's hard to load and unload the precious cargo.
ProsSun shade, low price, stand.
ConsA bit heavy.
Best UsesCity walking. Light hiking. Great on your back.

This product is very similar to an item I used we carried my children around. It has more bells and whistles then my carrier but then updates are appreciated.
ProsStand to help move child in and out of carrier without laying them down.
Best UsesChild is tired and work isn't done. The child gets needed attention and work is finished.

Good product for the price
It fits well, and is comfortable (at least for shorter hikes). If you are going to be hiking for days at a time it may not be the best option.

Great carrier
In the early 1980's we had a frame carrier we used for our baby, starting at 5 months of age up to about 4.5 years. She loved it, would happily ride in it all the time -- she was up high and could see the world, could move around but was kept safe by a safety strap, she was close to one of us, and she could just put her head down if she wanted to rest. Fast forward and a dear young friend has just had her first baby, lives in an urban area and walks everywhere, so we got her the Chicco support backpack. This is wonderful, lightweight and distributes the baby's weight so it is much more comfortable to use than a soft pack carrier. I know it will have a lot of use. We have recently been licensed to foster babies and bought this backpack to use with the little ones we care for. If you have one of these, you don't need a stroller...
ProsLightweight, sun protection, distributes child's weight well, is reasonably easy to put on and take off without assistance, and little ones love the ride.
ConsCan't think of any.
Best UsesEvery day, any time. Great for walks, while shopping (except if trying on clothing), even in the house when doing chores and your child wants to be close.

Different from the one's in the 80's but super good differences.
I love this although I wish the sun cover or whatever it's called was removable and maybe it is and I just haven't figured it out yet. It does fold back out of the way. Still, I should probably read the instructions again. I am indeed glad I read them at all since it's been 30 years since I had one of these things. The one I had in the 80's was simple, plop baby in and go, but this one has safety buckles for baby, straps on the chest and around the middle for the adult, and the sun screen cover. It's not as simple as I had previously but it’s certainly a lot safer and I expect nowadays no one would offer the kind they did in the 80's. And of course nowadays why would anyone want less safety so I'm very satisfied with the carrier. Bonus, this was the cheapest one I found. I don't want to scrimp on my granddaughter but I already purchased a front baby carrier and a cloth back baby carrier, the latter which ended up being a waste of money as she absolutely hated it (am giving it to Goodwill since I waited too long to return it). That's why I thought the backpack version I’d used so long ago would be ideal and thankfully it is! Baby grins and looks around and is quite content although she does like you to keep moving, short pauses are fine but if you want to stop and text a bit that seems to annoy her (young people and their texting! I'm amused, but my daughter has a beautiful, plump breastfed, diaper rash free, happy 10 month old charmer so if she must pause to text hubby, who adores his girls, then I guess texting is a good thing). Also it won't be used every day so I didn't want to dish out a couple of hundred which is what most others seemed to go for or nearly that amount. For the price it's really a wonderful deal. And I imagine it's probably on a par with the more expensive ones. At any rate it's super comfortable, easy to deal with (my daughter and I can easily set this onto a table or put it on the floor and have no problems slipping into it when we're just by ourselves), and it's super safe for baby which of course matters the most. I'm super satisfied and highly recommend!
ProsBaby loved this whereas she hated the cloth baby back carrier I got for her. It's also super easy to use compared to the cloth one which might be one reason she enjoys it.
ConsI wish the sun cover or whatever it's called was removable but maybe it is and I just haven't figured it out yet. It does fold back out of the way. Will read the instructions again if I can recall where I put them.
Best UsesWalks, outings - how I wish more people would use these instead of those gigantic strollers that are always in the way. Also around the house. When I'm not there to help/watch baby and when my daughter's hubby isn't my daughter has put baby into the carrier and taken care of household chores. She still uses her front carrier for baby sometimes but obviously some things you do around the house you don't want baby right in the mix, literally.

Wonderful backpack carrier
This backpack carrier surpassed my expectations! This product is attractive, sturdy, safe and easy to use. I bought it for my husband to use with our granddaughter--she loves being outside, and so does he, and this will allow them both to be comfortable while exploring the yard and beyond. So glad I found it on-line!
ProsFrees up your hands while hiking or walking with baby. It is lightweight and so glad it has the canopy for sunny days.
ConsHaven't found any yet.
Best UsesFor hiking and walks
