Gear Review: Piggyback Rider
We won a PiggyBack Rider on Instagram a few weeks ago, so I was ecstatic to try it out on the trail and share my thoughts on with all of you here.
We received an Explorer toddler Carrier with Adult and Child Hydration, Storage, and Safety Harness. Here is what is in the package:
- Hydration bladders (1 for you, 1 for them)
- Safety harness for child
We took our rider out for a hike and I admit it was nice during those times she asked to “get on my shoulders” to direct her to my back instead. I liked how the small storage space made for light trips and forces you to not bring so much stuff out. It was very comfortable and we were out for 2.5 miles of trail. I also appreciated that the carrier and harness together are less than 3 lbs.
The PiggyBack Rider is perfect for that in-between stage if your toddler is age 2-5 and needs an occasional break during hikes or when out and about. The weight limit is 50 lbs so I imagine we will be able to use for quite some time during other events, family outings, and longer hikes. I’d love to hear your thoughts if you have one or are looking to buy one.
There’s some great how-to’s on YouTube, but here’s a short instructional video below if you are curious and want a peek on how it all works.
