Bulky strollers can be cumbersome when you're taking a hike. Using a baby carrier keeps your arms free and your child safe, plus it prevents you from navigating uneven surfaces with a stroller. Here are three baby carriers to consider for taking your child along with you on hikes.
This carrier ensures a comfortable trek with cushy shoulder straps and buckles across the chest and waist to evenly distribute the weight. It also includes a removable drool pad, toy attachment loops and compartments for diapers and other supplies.
The Deuter Kid Comfort Pro fits securely while keeping your back fully ventilated. It has a sunroof, a rear-view mirror for a view of the rider, a locking kickstand to set the carrier down, and a removable daypack for diaper changes.
This model has extra padding for lumbar support, an adjustable canopy for sun protection and can accommodate children as they grow. The lightweight carrier collapses for easy storage and has a built-in kickstand for loading and unloading.
