The 15-month-old adores it

By P in ME

from Undisclosed

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

Comfortable, easy, more "storage" space than we thought -- and our daughter is positively giddy to be in it. As other reviewers note, the only downside is the need to readjust between parents/grandparents/etc. On the flip side... highly adjustable! We're into it, and glad we purchased this backpack!


Great Backpack

By Gaby

from Undisclosed

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

This backpack is awesome! It`s a lot more compact than other leading hiking backpacks, yet it offers most of the same features. We live in the city, but do go on hikes often. When I grab the pack out of storage and start loading it up, my son runs over and tries to climb into it himself. He obviously thinks it`s fun and comfortable! I use it for outings to the park or actual hiking trips. We had a small issue with one of the seams on the original backpack we received. I contacted Phil&Teds and I have to say, this company stands behind their products! The agent was very helpful, and with the warranty we managed to get the problem taken care of. Great customer service! Thanks you.


A really cool piece of kit

By Nits

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

I have a really active little nephew and I love taking him into the outdoors to burn him out when I'm babysitting! I don't like carting the stroller around when I know he's not going to be in it for long, so we use the metro carrier for him to jump in when his little legs get tired (they do eventually!). When he's not in it, it's super lightweight and comfortable enough on my back, and it has enough storage to double as a backpack for all our gear. I think this is the best piece of kid kit my sister owns!

Good back pack

By 5kd15

from Undisclosed

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

I've used this back pack a few times. It is well made and has nice features. My husband finds it to be extremely comfortable to wear and use. However as a small female I've found it to be not super comfortable to wear. It feels like my daughter is too far from my back, and so I have to lean forward to compensate. It feels unstable. I plan to buy trekking poles to use with the backpack. With the pack sitting on the ground, it will tip if the child leans one way. Don't forget to buy the rain/sun shield in the same purchase to save on shipping!


Easy to use and lightweight.

I purchased for my 19 month old granddaughter to use initially on our family vacation in the mountains. Worked great on the trail and during our shopping trips. She loved it. No more stroller for us.

Brilliant Baby Carrier

By ionajane

from Kirriemuir, United Kingdom

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

I did a lot of research for the perfect carrier for us. We live in a small town so I wanted a carrier that would be great for popping down the town but also for taking the dog for a walk to the woods and the beach. This carrier fitted the criteria exactly and I am not disappointed at all. My partner is 6 foot 3 inches and I am 5 foot 4 inches and we both find it extremely comfortable with our little boy in it. He loves it, he is 7 months old and gets so excited when he see's it. My partner works away a lot so I also wanted a carrier which I could get on and off easily by myself and the metro is perfect. I have even had to remove it in the middle of the woods, due to my sons hat obscuring his vision and it was easy to get back on again. My little one is not a small 7 month old either, he is fairly heavy but its so comfortable. Its also compact for having in the car. Brilliant all round carrier, would not hesitate to recommend, in fact I have already done so to a number of friends.

Full featured coolest kid carrier!

By DBoyer

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

We got the Metro in limited Graffiti pattern. Easily the coolest packing parents on the hill. It fit a full day hike picnic for a 2 kid family and still had good room for the kiddo. The shade hood is necessary for hotter climates. The aluminum kickstand is sturdier than it looks. Great weight distribution for ma & pa. Excellent for a bugout pack for prepper parents!

I love my metro back pack!

By Farm Mum

from Undisclosed

Comments about Phil & Teds 1011651 1011651 Phil & Ted's Metro Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

It is really comfortable (I have tried using a Mac Pac back pack and a Katmandu one) the shoulder straps are far more comfortable on my metro. My partner is really tall and I am short, it takes less than 20 sec to adjust the straps depending on who is using it. The base loading technology is great especially when you need to take the pack off when your out and about. It has just enough room to pack in a change of clothes/food drink etc. You can use it as a backpack and pack it for a day at the beach and when James is tired of walking he can just hop in. The sun shade is great in the summer, and its great wind/rain protection in the winter I have used my metro pack almost daily as we live on a farm, it is really handy when you have to shift stock, put up fences, feed out and do jobs that you need two hands for. When James was younger I pruned our Feijoa orchard with him in the pack. We recently went on an overseas trip to Europe and Canada. It was great at the airport and would fit in the overhead locker. We took it everywhere we went! At the suspension bridge park in Canada it was great as push chairs were not allowed and it would have been a long way to carry him! It must be comfortable for James as he loves getting in it and will go and get the Metro when he wants to go outside! He prefers it to the push chair as he is up high and gets a better view. Thanks for making a great product.
