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.
