I have a really active little nephew and I love taking him into the outdoors to burn him out when I'm babysitting! I don't like carting the stroller around when I know he's not going to be in it for long, so we use the metro carrier for him to jump in when his little legs get tired (they do eventually!). When he's not in it, it's super lightweight and comfortable enough on my back, and it has enough storage to double as a backpack for all our gear. I think this is the best piece of kid kit my sister owns!
Good back pack
I've used this back pack a few times. It is well made and has nice features. My husband finds it to be extremely comfortable to wear and use. However as a small female I've found it to be not super comfortable to wear. It feels like my daughter is too far from my back, and so I have to lean forward to compensate. It feels unstable. I plan to buy trekking poles to use with the backpack. With the pack sitting on the ground, it will tip if the child leans one way. Don't forget to buy the rain/sun shield in the same purchase to save on shipping!
Easy to use and lightweight.

I purchased for my 19 month old granddaughter to use initially on our family vacation in the mountains. Worked great on the trail and during our shopping trips. She loved it. No more stroller for us.
Brilliant Baby Carrier
I did a lot of research for the perfect carrier for us.
We live in a small town so I wanted a carrier that would be great for popping down the town but also for taking the dog for a walk to the woods and the beach.
This carrier fitted the criteria exactly and I am not disappointed at all.
My partner is 6 foot 3 inches and I am 5 foot 4 inches and we both find it extremely comfortable with our little boy in it. He loves it, he is 7 months old and gets so excited when he see's it.
My partner works away a lot so I also wanted a carrier which I could get on and off easily by myself and the metro is perfect. I have even had to remove it in the middle of the woods, due to my sons hat obscuring his vision and it was easy to get back on again. My little one is not a small 7 month old either, he is fairly heavy but its so comfortable.
Its also compact for having in the car.
Brilliant all round carrier, would not hesitate to recommend, in fact I have already done so to a number of friends.
Full featured coolest kid carrier!
We got the Metro in limited Graffiti pattern. Easily the coolest packing parents on the hill. It fit a full day hike picnic for a 2 kid family and still had good room for the kiddo. The shade hood is necessary for hotter climates. The aluminum kickstand is sturdier than it looks. Great weight distribution for ma & pa. Excellent for a bugout pack for prepper parents!
