I have searched high and low for the perfect baby backpack carrier, and now I found it. This backpack carrier from Evenflo is a dream come true. I have horrible back pain and this is the only one I have tried that distributes the weight across my back and not in one place. My son who is almost two and very big for his age fits nicely inside the backpack and enjoys watching people as we go on walks or out to a family hiking location. There is a great amount of padding and the shoulder straps provide much needed support. There is a convenient waist pouch to store keys or anything else a mommy may need for a trip out with the little ones. This sturdy backpack carrier does have some wieght to it since it has an internal metal frame, but that is what makes it durable and comfortable. I would suggest this product to any active parent.
