Osprey Poco Kid Carrying Pack

The linked pack is an update, but I've been out on the trails with my almost four year old and 15 month old and have carried them both a ton. This pack is amazing if you've got kids. I can carry the 38 pounder and he can even fall asleep when his "little legs are getting tired". Every parent who's seen it has wondered what it is and who makes it. Tempted to get another one as the littlest gets bigger so we can go for even longer hikes.

Lots of hiking these days in between teaching remotely.

Osprey makes good stuff. I've got a couple of their small MTB packs and they fit perfect.
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

Can it handle a 185 lb older gentleman?

How much of said gentleman's weight will be carried by his legs wrapped firmly around your waist? Need to know before I can give an educated answer.

You might need to request longer straps for the stirrups and a touch more reinforcement. Otherwise, you're good to go.

When I saw the title of this thread I assumed there was a rockabilly star called the Osprey Poco Kid and there was some news about his posse.

Come on dude. Texas camping trips are a no go due to quarantine.
