When your back and hips hurt, hiking isn't fun. Especially when you've got a squirmy little one on your back. So osprey incorporated their award winning ag (anti-gravity) backpack suspension system into the poco ag plus child carrier. Lightweight aluminum stays provide load stability and the mesh shoulder harness and back panel combination keeps you comfortable for the long haul. Child safety and comfort is paramount. The child cockpit is fully framed and padded and the butterfly harness is fleece-covered. When you set the pack down, the base is extra wide and has a locking foot bar for stability. Two large, reinforced grab handles ensure secure pickups. The child seat has built-in safety leg loops. Adult comfort is also a concern. The fit-on-the-fly hip belt means both parents can enjoy proper fit during the same walk. Parents can also share the weight with a removable day pack. Other features include an integrated sunshade to protect sensitive skin, a myriad of storage pockets, and a removable, washable drool pad.

extremely well made, very comfortable and tons of storage! We've tried several packs over the years and this by far has been superior to all others. it's easy to adjust for various body types/sizes, both for the passenger and wearer. The child foot slings were genius, they make for a much more comfortable "ride" for the passenger. Their legs aren't dangling as with most packs (which eventually cuts off circulation and pain). we've hiked for hours with these and the kids are quite comfortable.
There were so many positive reviews of the old version of the Poco, combined with the great reviews of the AG system, that I thought this would be a winning combination. Unfortunately the combination of two great products did not workout in this case. When I first got the pack, I fitted it based on the instructions that came with the pack and both my husband and I had a terrible pain in the side of our hips, so bad that we cut our walk short to get the thing off our backs. Upon closer inspection we found a hard ridge of plastic on the bottom edge of the hip belt which was digging into us causing the pain. We contact Osprey, who were nice but weren't able to solve the problem. We took the bag to REI and even though we didn't purchase the pack from them they were nice enough to help us with the fit. REI informed us that people either love or hate the AG system. They help us adjust the pack to achieve a better fit, which centered around lowering the shoulder straps (lowering the saddle...
We absolutely love this pack. We've been using it since my baby was around 4 months old. She hates being swaddled or carried against your body so wraps and ergos aren't really an option. Oh how she loves being in this pack though! We use it for walks, day hikes, and even around the house when we need to get stuff done but she wants to be carried. It has a bunch of pockets that remove the need to carry a diaper bag while using it, folds down to a reasonable size, is super lightweight, and has a ton of adjustment settings so that my mom (5'3 using the XS setting) and husband (6'2 using the M setting) can both comfortably use it. The pack is also adjustable to grow with your baby. We'll definitely be using this for YEARS to come.
