Give your child a parent's-eye view of the world when you put them in the comfortable and secure dark shadow/slate Sapling Elite Child Carrier with Removable Backpack from Thule. Kids will love the height adjustable seat, stirrups, and included sunshade. And because parents get thirsty too, there's a hydration reservoir sleeve and tube. Both parent and child will appreciate the dual access, side and top passenger loading options, and bar for balancing the carrier in an upright position. Two, large, zippered compartments and several mesh pockets are useful for transporting all the stuff parents can never leave home without – such as extra clothing, snacks, bottles, diapers, toys and other essentials. Once loaded, on-the-go load stabilizer straps keep everything comfy.
One of the best features of the Elite Child Carrier is the removable backpack. This provision is especially useful in restaurants and other places where one might wish to store the carrier, yet still be able to bring necessities such as a bottle and valuables with them. The backpack has shoulder straps, chest connector, pockets and compartments for organizing gear. When attached to the carrier, the backpack forms a sleek, attractive and aerodynamic package.
Parents will appreciate the rear view mirror that enables them to make eye contact with their child and make sure everything's okay. An adjustable, padded hip belt with zippered pockets helps reduce fatigue and provides a convenient place for storing your phone, wallet, glasses and perhaps an energy bar or two. The shoulder straps and back panel are adjustable and padded as well. Grooves and air mesh on the back panel promote airflow and help wick-away moisture to keep you cool and comfortable. For added stability, there's an adjustable sternum strap.
