Win An Osprey Poco Plus Baby Carrier!

Win me!

I am of the mind that you always need to bring your stroller with you when traveling with a baby. But having seen this (relatively new) baby carrier from Osprey, I’m tempted to temper that sentiment. Depending on your destination, and the type of traveling you’ll be doing, the heavy-duty Poco Plus baby and toddler carrier just might really leave your hands free and without the need for wheels.

The carrier itself weighs under 7lbs, and can carry a maximum load of of 22 kg/48 lbs – which is child, gear and pack combined.  But you must not use the Poco until baby can sit upright unassisted and weighs at least 16lbs (7.3kg). The harness is easily adjustable for when baby grows, and there are stirrups for older and taller passengers, to help with dangly (and kicky) feet syndrome.

Some nifty features of the Poco Plus include:

  • A built-in sunshade
  • A size adjustable hipbelt with zippered mesh pockets
  • A large zippered lower compartment for diapers, jackets, and bulky items
  • An inner mesh security pocket
  • Two stretch mesh side pockets
  • A stretch mesh pocket on upper front panel that offers quick convenient storage
  • A zippered stash pocket on the upper front panel
  • Cell phone pocket on shoulder strap
  • Cord loops allow the quick attachment of the optional Daylite daypack

I adore Osprey’s Vector Series luggage – so much so that I included it in my 2012 Gear Guide – and am super-bummed that they are discontinuing it. However, the Poco series of baby carrier backpacks is quite new, and so well-received that I’m sure they’ll be around for some time.

I’m delighted that Osprey has offered to give away a Poco Plus to a Have Baby Will Travel reader! I’m giving Rafflecopter a try for this giveaway. Let me know if you hate it and I’ll go back to the old fashioned way. In the meantime, this giveaway is open to residents of Canada and the US (sorry, Quebec and Puerto Rico) and all the details are in the nifty Rafflecopter widget. You have until October 30, 2012 to enter.

This looks like an amazing infant carrier backpack, and it’s valued at over $250.00. Good luck – and please tell us where you take it on your travels!

    both!

    both in our case, but what’s up with the limited view of family in this poll? “Who does the babywearing – Mama or Dada?” I know babies with fantastic 2 Mamas, 2 Dadas and other variations.

    • Corinne at 22:04 #

      Good point, Erica – as do I. That’s really just laziness on my part.
      I’ll endeavour to be more inclusive in my language from now on.

  7. Carrie E at 22:03 #

    Both – depends who is hoding the other one!

  8. Sarah at 22:08 #

    I get the backpack with essentials (aka snacks) and he wears the kiddo. Now that there’s two I imagine the snacks will go in the carrier with the smaller child. Even out the odds that way!
