|“One size fits all.” That’s probably something you never thought you’d hear from Osprey, but in this case, it’s a necessary requirement for the product (and an excellent design challenge). The pack has to fit both parents, and it needs to adjust very quickly to accommodate either.|
The trampoline tensioned mesh backpanel will fit anyone’s contours and maintains airflow for excellent ventilation. Soft, supportive shoulder straps have strategically-placed ventilating holes and breathable spacer mesh contact surfaces.
|TORSO LENGTH ADJUSTMENT
Release the cam buckle in the center of the backpanel and the ventilated shoulder straps are free to glide up and down over a 6” / 15cm adjustment range. The screenprinted scale makes it quick to position accurately. Lock the buckle down and the yoke is fixed securely. It’s the fastest, easiest adjustment system out there.
The fit of the hipbelt is critical to comfortable carry. Remember, kid carriers are often freighting loads that exceed typical backpacking weights. Our design allows the belt to be adjusted while wearing, with pads able to extend 3” / 7.5cm on each side. Simply separate the overlay pad and pull it forward. Press down on the hook and loop fastener to fix the pad in place. This Osprey exclusive design ensures excellent fit and load transfer.
