Congratulations. Your first child was just born. Now, before you even finish that cigar, let’s get one thing straight: your whole life just changed, your routine is now scrapped, everything from when (if) you sleep to how to see the world to how you drive, has now just changed. Thankfully, there is gear to help ease this transition — from big to small, and everything in-between, including the child-carrying, non-bjorning, Osprey Poco.
The Poco comes in three trims, base, plus and premium. I chose the plus because it had all the things I needed and nothing more. The base doesn’t have a sunshade, side mesh pockets or the on-the-fly adjustable waist straps, and the premium was a little too much, offering a zip-on/zip-off daypack and changing pad (I’m not an extreme enough hiker to need either of those).
