Awesome back pack

Comments about Phil & Teds Phil & Ted's Parade Lightweight Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

I love this backpack but due to my daughters fare skin, having the option to buy an canopy attachment should be available! We spend many hours riding in this pack and I highly recommend finding a backpack with a sun shade canopy. This may be unrealistic to ask but is there any way to design an attachment to buy in the near future? thanks

Comments about Phil & Teds Phil & Ted's Parade Lightweight Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

Could do with more padding, especially on the shoulder straps. There is literally almost none so after about five minutes the straps really dig in to the collarbones. Ours has also got quite a loud squeak which is a tad annoying. I think another good feature would be some foot stirrups of some sort for the baby. On the plus side, I love the way it looks, my 15 month old seems to mainly like it too. I like that it's not as enormous as some wired baby carriers. Love the orange colour. Love that it folds up really compact. Love that I can put baby in myself safely when on my own. To conclude, with a few tiny adjustments I think this carrier would be perfect. For the price it's pretty great.

I bought Parade for a summer trip and we are going to use it with our 1 year old in airport when we can't use a stroller. Parafde seems to be a good quality product.

One Great Pack

Comments about Phil & Teds Phil & Ted's Parade Lightweight Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

I just purchased the Parade model and took it for a spin.Wow! The comfort for my son was appearent and for me? It's fabulous. (And that's a tall order for a nearly 50 year old 'new' parent). He was secure, I had his weight distributed through my hip, not my shoulders, and we were comfortable for more than an hour. I look forward to many more opportunities 'to share a ride' with my infant son. Storage was ample, the wallet&key compartment is an added bonus, and the mini pack? Who needs a diaper bag? My only concern is the last of sun shade. We spend a lot of time outdoors at farmer's markets, nurseries, and sights and the added protection of a sun shade would have made this carrier perfect.

Awesome carrier in its category

By JasCon

Comments about Phil & Teds Phil & Ted's Parade Lightweight Backpack Carrier - Blue/Grey:

So after reading all of the reviews both good and bad I took the plunge and ordered it this Tuesday. I was surprised that despite the international shipping it arrived fast on Friday night. Took it out for a field trial going around the mall the next day and this carrier was awesome. It was comfortable for me and my 11 month old baby. He was all smiles and never wanted to get out of it for the 2 hours we were going around. Weight is nicely distributed and allowed me to move freely. It was easy to fit, just a few tugs at the straps and it's ready to go. Felt just a bit of discomfort from the strap that goes across the chest. I will place a strap foam across it to solve the problem. Otherwise the paddings on the back and waist strap are excellent. I also liked the looks. It's stylish and sleek enough that we did not look like we were going hiking in the woods. My baby liked it so much that it doubled as a high chair when we stopped to eat. I even got glances from other parents and whinings from other toddlers who wanted to get on it. This type of carrier is not commonplace where I live. The moment it arrived my two year old nephew wanted to go horsey horsey on it, I obliged and he absolutely loved it. I took him around the block and gave me a bit of a workout. The only flaw is indeed what other users also reported in Amazon. The moment it arrived I already noticed a bit of wearing at the point where the elbow joint at the back pressed against the fabric when the carrier is folded. It could have been solved by giving more allowance to the fabric such that it did not hit the elbow joint when folded. I did not want it to develop into a full hole so I Macgyvered it by placing duct tape at the inside where the elbow meets the fabric and on the outside. I will try to find a darker gray duct tape so it could be hardly noticed. I think this solved the problem. You can see what I am talking about on the third and fourth pics. I could have rated it 5 stars if not for this flaw. As mentioned I dod know about this flaw but the good points about this carrier outweighed the flaw. With the problem solved I am looking forward to more adventures with my boy as we go around the island.
