A child carrier that gives you the freedom to move

A child carrier backpack with an innovative, machine washable child seat that provides complete leg support to maximize comfort on any adventure.

An innovative child seat to maximize comfort

Comfort is key when you are out with your kids, so we have created one of the most comfortable backpacks on the market. We call our unique child seat system ErgoRide, it provides complete support underneath the child’s legs to disperse their weight. The result? Longer hikes in comfort and no need for the stirrups that are used on most carriers. Compared to stirrups, our child seat ensures your child's legs are supported even when they kick or move around.

Easy to wear, easy to use

The lightweight Thule Sapling is super comfortable for parents to wear on long hikes, too. The fully adjustable torso and hip belt provide a perfect fit and the carrier is easy to switch between parents on your trip. Also, the opening of the side panel makes it easy to get a squirming child in and out of the carrier. The convenient side zippers let you easily access the 22L gear compartment while wearing the pack.
