So far, so good...we love it! The adjustable straps for me and my child were a requirement when I researched packs as well as the overall safety factor. Osprey has met my expectations with this product!Numerous packs offer the padding against the back and around the waist, which is comfortable in some conditions, but it does not allow for air flow in order to cool contact points. The webbing design of the Osprey is sturdy and allows an open-air condition to reduce sweat. This feature was one of the "selling factors."Yes, there are numerous child carriers on the market, but if you want what is best for your child, I highly recommend the Osprey Poco Plus or Premium.
Kid loves it and so do I. Adjustable enough to go from me (190 lbs) to my wife (120 lbs) with just a few pulls of a couple straps. Enough storage to ensure this is the only pack on a day trip. Shade cover is probably the best feature on the pack, easy up and easy down, and protects the kid to perfection. I haven't abused it as far as trying to destroy it, but built like tank. Lighter then most regular packs I have worn (Without the kid in it). If you want your child to experience the outdoors, this is the best option. Comfort, durability, and mobility.
"My newest go-to piece of travel equipment!"
It doesn't take more than a second to adjust the pack to fit you or your passenger's preferences. The built in sunshade works as advertised. I wont use the changing pad that is included since it is kind of annoying to put back into it's storage spot. The removable pack is small and dainty and wont fit my frame. The only down side to this purchase was that I had to order the optional rainfly from another website. My daughter absolutely loves it and due to how comfortable and mobile I feel using it, I have decide that the next time I have to travel overseas I am using the Poco instead of a stroller.
"Just in case you need to bring the kid and everything he/she owns."
This thing is large. No way around it. It will double your front to back footprint. The good thing is you have lots of room for gear. The detatchable pack is great for overnight cloths and such. I would leave it attached to the pack though. It is too small to carry around whithout being made fun of. The child section has many straps and buckles to secure them in for a custom fit. With the built in sunshade you save $30 and have a place to store it in between uses.
