Summer vacation is easy to pack for, right? It’s flip-flops, sundresses, and…oh wait. When you’re going to the mountains, the weather can swing from blazing hot to frosty cold. Plus, unlike the beach, there are tons more activities—which means needing tons more gear.

Here’s how to pack wisely so you and your kids enjoy your high altitude getaway.

Transport

You won’t want to head home when you’re hiking with your toddler in the new Osprey Poco Premium ($299). This high-end kid carrier can carry up to 48 pounds and brings the storied pack company’s lightweight frame system to the kid carrier category. Until now, Deuter dominated the market with its Kid Comfort series, and those are great. But I love the integrated shade in the Poco and the kids’ harness, which is less like that of a carseat harness and more like a backpack. Plus the zip off backpack and the ample storage are supremely useful.

If walking or hiking is her favorite sport, she can take her little one along in the newly designed Osprey Poco Premium Kid Carrier ($299). Osprey sent me a Poco carrier to try, and I was amazed at how lightweight and comfortable it was to use, even on two-hour hikes. The pack weighs under eight pounds and the supersupportive hip straps make carrying a toddler easy and back pain free. The back mesh panel prevents getting all sweaty and the torso length can be easily adjusted with a quick slide up or down in case dad wants to have a turn carrying the kiddo.

There are tons of compartments all over the pack — I love the phone pocket on the shoulder strap. Two other awesome features are the removable day pack to keep snacks and extra layers and the built-in sun shade that also protects in light rain. It comes in three colors and if you want to see the pack and if you want to see the pack in action, watch this video.

SNEWSNet.com – Featuring Poco Premium – April 23, 2012

April 23, 2012

When Osprey set out to create its first line of child carrier packs for 2012, it didn’t want to compromise on what the brand is best known for — comfort and fit.

That presented a challenge for the designers of the new Osprey Poco series. They had to consider the comfort and fit of at least three different people — mom, dad and kid.

So when SNEWS received the new Osprey Poco Premium (MSRP: $299) to test this spring, we threw every size of person at the pack with a patient baby in tow to give it the full test. Minus a few nitpicks, it’s one of the best child carriers we’ve tested.

The Poco’s ability to easily and quickly dial in fit and comfort for all is its highlight. The torso height adjustment is extremely accessible and can be set anywhere along a 6-inch adjustable range. This all made switching from 5-foot, 4-inch tall mom to 5-foot, 11-inch tall dad multiple times during hikes a breeze. With additional adjustments on the hip belt, shoulder straps, and load lifters, all of our testers were able to properly shift the bulk of the pack’s weight to the hips and maximize comfort. To each of us, if felt like our own custom-fitted pack. The only complaint came from our tallest of testers at 6 feet, whose back of the head would brush up against the child’s sunshade while looking up.

The Osprey Poco Premium, part of Osprey’s new child carrier line, has great ventilation and is easy to adjust. We love the detachable daypack of this deluxe model, which also has a changing pad, built-in sunshade and various compartments to carry everything from snacks to your cell phone.

Style: “My first impression? Sleek, light, functional and attractive.”

“It is very similar to a nice backpacking pack — lots of straps and levels to adjust. It is easy to adjust to four torso sizes (xs-large), which is great, but it takes a bit of time to find the perfect size. The same goes for some of the other straps.”
