Osprey Poco LT Child Carrier

The “LT” is the latest addition to the Poco family. A lighter and smaller version of the Poco and Poco Plus packs, it has everything you need to keep your little one (and yourself) happy on the trail.

A zippered compartment holds snacks, layers, diapers, etc., plus, it has a deployable sunshade to keep kids cool. Moreover, the back panel adjusts quickly so it’s easy to pass the pack to a person of a different height and size when it’s their turn.

A new parent on staff has been testing both the Poco LT and Poco Plus for months. While both are stellar child carriers, he prefers the Poco LT for its relative comfort, weight, and packability. The Poco LT feels a bit more like a regular backpack due to the smaller size, yet it still carried comfortably in his tests with kids from 17 to 25 lbs. He also found it easier to lift and get onto his back than the larger model. Best of all, his daughter loves it since she is up high and can see her surroundings.
