Best Baby Carriers for Hiking – [Take a Hike with Baby!]

Before you hit the trails with your tot, you’re going to need one of the best baby carriers for hiking of some sort. As much as you think you can carry your child on your shoulders for the entirety of the hike, save yourself the pain suffering, and get yourself a hiking carrier that fits your needs.

If you think your love for hiking and exploring the outdoors is a distant memory now that you have a little one, that’s not the case at all! In fact, fostering a love and appreciation for the outdoors is a great way to raise your children! There are few things that make me happier than hiking with my little ones. Fun au naturál rather than manufactured fun encourages creativity and imagination (you’d be amazed how many things a stick can be) and with no technological distractions (phones, tablets, tv), you can create stronger bonds with your little ones all while getting exercise and fresh air.

Picking the right hiking carrier is important but might be hard to navigate. They vary in price, weight, support, storage, and of course, the bells and whistles they offer—so let us help you. Below are six of the best hiking carriers on the market right now for varying needs.

When Do You Need a Hiking Carrier

It’s never too early to start hiking with your little one. In fact, fresh air is great for baby and especially a postpartum mama. You can get away with a sling or wrap for the first few months of your baby’s life since they’re so small and you don’t need the kind of back support that hiking carriers provide. Your baby will need the head and neck support that they don’t though.

Once your baby gains some pounds and some head control, you are going to want something more supportive and comfortable. There are soft carriers and structured carriers.  A soft carrier (I recommend the absolute best one below), gives your baby’s head and neck support, so you can start using those around 4 months, but to use a structured carrier, you will have to wait until your child is at least 6 months old or can easily hold his or her head up.

I should also mention that some of these carriers are pricey, but the good thing is that they last until your child hits about 40 pounds (about three or four). They are all incredibly durable so you can use them for a few years for multiple children, which makes for a long life for these packs. If you use them enough, you will definitely get your money’s worth.

Features To Look For in the Best Hiking Carrier

Hiking carriers come with a variety of features to pick and choose from. so decide what are important to you. Features that hiking carriers can have are:

  • Integrated sunshade – one of the more important features I would say. Keep your baby out of the sun and in the sunburn free zone
  • Storage– definitely important to consider if you plan on hiking alone. You’ll need plenty of room for water, snacks, diapers, and extra layers.
  • Weight – every pound counts when you’re hiking up and down hills while carrying a child and gear on your back.
  • Child headrest – If your little one can sleep on the go, the headrests on some of these packs are key.
  • Ventilation – Keeping cool, especially in warm summer months makes hiking more enjoyable

Best Baby Carriers for Hiking

Deuter Kid Comfort Baby Hiking Carrier

best hiking carrier

The Deuter Kid Comfort is supportive and comfortable for both parent and child.

Deuter has won awards for their stellar hiking carriers, and for good reason. I’ve tried other Kid Comfort versions, but they really got it right with this one. The comfort level is on point, it’s extremely supportive, and the ventilation is unparalleled; making it perfect for hot summer hikes. Deuter also knows that the most important part about hiking with a child is keeping them happy, which is why I assume they made a well-padded soft headrest for when it’s nap time on the go.

If I could tweak it: I would make the pockets around the waistband slightly bigger so I could more easily fit my phone and kid snacks. I also wish there was an easy way to stow away the sunshade as it is not integrated into the pack.

Weight of pack: 7.1 pounds

Weight/age range for the child: Max weight the carrier can hold is 48lbs with the child and gear. Deuter makes no specifications on the age or weight of the child.

Storage space: 3.7 gallons

Sunshade: Included but not integrated

Headrest: Yes

Ventilation: 5/5 stars

Price: 200-$290, purchase here!

Kelty Journey PerfectFIT Elite

The Kelty Journey Perfectfit Elite is a robust pack for the most seasoned carrier.

Ooh she’s pretty. This hiking carrier not only looks the part, but it plays the part. It’s well padded for optimal comfort, easily adjustable to fit the shortest to the tallest parent, and my personal favorite: the storage. It has huge pockets on the hip belt to keep your phone, keys, a selfie stick, heck, even a snack. On the back, it has a backpack with two pockets with mesh inserts to organize everything you need on your hike. Beyond that, there is a large pocket underneath the child seat that’s made of a material that wipes clean because, hey, messes happen. Its sunshade is also beautifully integrated into the pack.

If I could tweak it: This one was so close to checking all the boxes, but I wish it had dual access where a child could get in from the top or the side. With this pack, your child can only get in from the top. For small infants and toddlers, this is fine, but once they get bigger and heavier, it’s a little more difficult to get them in and out.

Weight of pack: 7lbs 4oz

Weight/age range for child: 16-40lbs (approximately 6 to 36 months)

Storage space: 6.9 gallons

Sunshade: Integrated

Headrest: Yes

Ventilation: 4/5 stars

Price: $300, current pricing here!

Chicco Smart Support Hiking Carrier

best hiking carrier

I love the price tag on this carrier!

Chicco exchanges all the bells and whistles that a hiking carrier can feature for a low-cost option for parents. Being half the price of other hiking carriers on the market (and in this post), it’s a good option for parents who want a structured carrier without the hefty price tag. The comfort and support does not match that of the more expensive hiking carriers, so this is better for parents who take short hikes here and there. And bonus! It does come with a small sun shade which does end up coming in handy.

If I could tweak it: I really wish there was some sort of storage. There’s not even a pocket on this to hold a phone or a water bottle.

Weight of pack: 6.5 lbs

Weight/age range for child: 17-40lbs (approximately 6 to 36 months)

Storage space: 0

Sunshade: integrated but small

Headrest: No

Ventilation: 3/5 stars

Price: ~$130, purchase yours here!

Thule Sapling Elite Child Carrier

The Thule Sapling Elite carrier is comfortable, has an incredible amount of storage, and looks sleek.

Comfort on fleek (translation: wow this pack is comfortable). This carrier does three things exceptionally well: support, storage, and adjustments for any sized adult. The support is equal to that of the Deuter and Kelty packs. They’re all incredible on that front. For storage, the Thule has about the same amount of storage as the Kelty pack, but a cool feature is that you can zip off the pack on the back so your hiking buddy can bear the weight burden. Lastly, in terms of adjustments, it does so like a breeze so you can easily switch from a short person to the tallest.

Thule really nailed it with this pack and made the hefty price tag well worth it.

If I could tweak it: This pack is nearly perfect except the support stand that pops out to load and unload your child isn’t very sturdy.

Weight of pack: 7.9 lbs

Weight/age range for the child: 16 lbs weight minimum and able to sit upright without assistance. The maximum carrying capacity for the pack is 48lbs with child and gear.

Storage space: `~7lbs including detachable backpack

Sunshade: integrated

Headrest: Yes

Ventilation: 5/5 stars

Price: ~$350, check it out here!

MiaMily HIPSTER

Best Hiking Carrier

The MiaMily HIPSTER is the best option for soft hiking carriers. This should be your go to if you’re planning on                             hiking while traveling as it’s small enough to pack. It also has storage for a solo hiker.

My biggest complaint about this baby carrier for hiking is that it did not exist a few years ago when my son was an infant. We lived in New York City, and when I would go on walks with him using a different carrier, I would say, “I wish there was a pocket on this to fit a small wallet, my phone, a diaper or 2, and a water bottle”. Now, thanks to an innovative mama duo, what I always dreamed of now exists.

And they made it better than I could imagine.

This soft carrier wouldn’t just be used for hiking, but everyday use as well. What’s great about using it for hiking is that it does offer a good amount of support, it doesn’t weigh much at all, and for a short hike or one you’re going on with a pal that can carry a pack, you have all the storage space you need. If you’re looking for a soft carrier instead of a structured carrier, or one that you can travel with that doesn’t take up much room at all, this one’s yours.

Additionally, you will definitely get your money’s worth as it’s an everyday carrier for the smallest infant to a 44lb kid!

If I could tweak it: I wouldn’t. They nailed it.

Weight of pack: 1.9 lbs

Weight/age range for the child: 3 months old to 3 years old

Storage space: Not specified, but about a gallon, I would say. There is this youtube video that shows how much it can fit.

Sunshade: none

Headrest: No, but your child can sleep comfortably resting against your body

Ventilation: 3.5/5 stars

Price: ~$130, buy yours here!

Piggyback Rider

The Piggyback Rider is a good option for parents with older children. It’s small, it’s lightweight, and it’s fun.

This is not your average hiking carrier. I wanted to include this as an option because it has many benefits and it’s great for older toddlers and kids. In terms of weight, it only weighs 2 pounds and is extremely compact, so bringing it along on an adventure or stroll for a “just in case” moment isn’t difficult. Additionally, kids really enjoy riding it because it’s fun, and their vantage point is not what they usually experience as they’re higher up than in any other carrier. This is great for older children who no longer fit in any other hiking carrier, but don’t quite have the stamina to hike a trail start to finish.

This is a barebone, incredibly lightweight carrier that barely takes up any space. It is really great for traveling and can be used off the trails when you’re exploring a new city or taking a stroll in the park.

If I could tweak it: With the harness, your child is secure on your back, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off completely. However, I wish it had foot straps that kept your child’s feet secure.

Weight of pack: 2 lbs

Weight/age range for the child: 2-4 years old (up to 50lbs)

Storage space: None

Sunshade: No

Headrest: No – the child would not be able to sleep with this carrier

Ventilation: 5/5 stars

Price: ~$75, purchase here!

New Addition! Baebi Carrier

One of our other Rookie Moms loves this carrier so much, that we just had to add it on to the list! They are a nature-loving crew that loves hiking, camping, and exploring. Unfortunately, the great outdoors can be a hard place to manage when you have 4 under 8 trying to run off of every mountain they see. Making sure their 7 month-old is securely tucked into a carrier allows the extra hands to help their other children explore safely. The BAEBI Carrier was the most secure, comfortable, and structured carrier this mama had ever used. Both her and her little guy love the thick padding. They also really appreciated the easy but secure snap system, which allows you to get your baby in and out easily. It has become their go-to carrier for all things outdoors!

Weight of pack: 2.2 lbs

Weight/age range for the child: Newborn to 6+ Months

Storage space: Tons of convenient pockets & they are zippered. 

Ventilation: 5/5 stars

Price: $160, buy yours here!

Make Travel Easy With The Best Toddler Travel Beds!

Traveling with a toddler can definitely be challenging! This is especially true when it comes to bedtime and figuring out where your toddler will sleep. Hotel beds can be high & dangerous, but the floor or a roll-away bed can be just as tricky. Whether you’re visiting some of the best places to travel with kids or staying with family, here are the 8 best toddler travel beds! They will give your child a comfortable, fun, and safe place to sleep when traveling. The beds on this list are easy to set up, break down, and carry along with you making them must-haves no matter what your destination is. 

Best Air Mattresses for Traveling Toddlers

Air mattresses are a great option when traveling. While you could go with a simple twin-sized air mattress, I would recommend getting an air mattress made specifically for toddlers. This is mainly because these will have built-in inflatable rails or bumpers. This will ease your worry about keeping your toddler from falling out of bed during the night.

Toddler air mattresses are basic and easy to use, so they won’t add any stress onto long travel days! If you’re familiar with inflating and decompressing an air mattress, these work just the same. Some even have technology that makes it easier to deflate and compress them.  This way they easily fit back into a carrying case.

The Shrunks Toddler Air Mattress

best toddler travel bed   

This toddler air mattress is the gold standard. It is one of the best inflatable toddler travel beds. It is a standard air mattress with the addition of simple, low bumpers on the sides for added safety. The design makes it easy to get in and out or to check on your child throughout the night. The middle portion has a space around the edges for tucking a sheet, making it easy to get ready for bed and pack up.

The Hiccapop Inflatable Toddler Bed

best toddler travel bed

The Hiccapop Inflatable Toddler Bed comes in 2 pieces giving it higher bumpers for extra security. The middle portion of the bed comes out completely to make it easy to add sheets and can be used separately as your child gets older and doesn’t need the bumpers at night. This mattress inflates and deflates quickly so you don’t have a lot of setup before bed.

 

The Best Fold Out Cots & Pop Up Beds For Toddlers

Some of the best options for toddler travel beds are cots and pop up beds. These are easily foldable and collapsible bed options. You can set them up quickly and can be used as benches or extra seats at a campsite or in the backyard. These are a good option for those that are looking for a bed specifically for camping or if you want something that’s easy to store, easy to set up, and doesn’t take up a ton of space. Using these in a hotel or at a friend’s house allows you to fold it back up during the day to save space in your room while making it easy to set up for bedtime.

Privacy Pop Bed Tent

best toddler travel bed

How cute is this tent bed? It will truly give your toddler their own space. Both sides can be left open or closed (with plenty of ventilation), which comes in handy if you’re in a space where others may be staying up later than your little one. Keep in mind, the mattress and the bed frame are not included, this is just the tent piece. However, I appreciate this because it gives you the freedom to set it up any way you would like. You may want to look into one of the air mattresses above to place inside, or you can simply make it cozy with blankets. 

Kidco PeadPod Plus Portable Travel Bed

best toddler travel bed

This may be my favorite toddler travel bed on this whole list! It is so easy to pack up and take on the go with you. It is super lightweight and the mesh will protect your toddler from insects as well as allow for great airflow. Another great feature of this pop tent is that it offers UV protection meaning you can also use it for protection on sunny days. This travel bed does come with a sleeping pad that can easily be removed for cleaning. 

Regalo My Cot Portable Toddler Bed

The Regalo My Cot Portable Toddler Bed has a very simple design that easily folds out. This is one of the best toddler travel bed options because it gets your child off the ground but is still low to the ground. You can put a fitted sheet on this bed as well. It can also be used as a fun place for your child to sit and hang out for movie nights or sleepovers. This cot is well worth the investment because it has multiple purposes, such as for camping, or even in a playroom, as opposed to a toddler air mattress that may have more limited usage.

Joovy Foocot Child Cot

Another fold out cot option is the Joovy Foocot Child Cot. I love the fun colors this one comes in! It is very easy to set up and provides plenty of room for your little one to spread out. It also comes in its own travel bag complete with a strap. The bed itself has two storage pockets for keeping an alarm clock or comfort items during the day. This is a great toddler bed to add to any hotel room, cruise ship cabin, or guest room.

 

Inflatable Bed Bumpers

Another option to create a safe toddler travel bed is to use inflatable bed bumpers.

OlarHike Bed Rail Bumpers

These two inflatable bumpers are waterproof and have straps to tuck under the mattress to keep them right where you want them. These bumpers work with a wide variety of beds. They are designed to make it easy to place them anywhere in the bed. You can create a smaller sleep space, or use them to simply separate the bed. Everything in this set packs up easily and you can store it all in a suitcase. You can inflate these bumpers with your mouth, so you won’t have to carry separate tools or pumps.

Oh Baby! Inflatable Bed Bumper with Air Pump

best toddler travel bed

These follow the same concept as the bumpers above, but I love that they come with an air pump and little bag. These bumpers are so easy to travel with, you probably won’t even notice the addition in your bag. These do not have straps to attach them to the bed, so you will have to make sure they are firmly in place by covering them with the sheet and firmly tucking it under the bed.

Day to Day Double Strollers

Uppababy 2017 Vista Stroller

best double strollers

You seriously get the best of both worlds with this stroller; it is lightweight, has all the accessories you could ever want, and is so easy to convert into whatever you need it to be. The stroller comes with a bassinet seat, which is even equipped with proper ventilation and depth for overnight sleep making this stroller perfect for travel. If you have multiples you will be able to attach 2 bassinet seats or 2 infant car seats. However, if you have a toddler and a newborn the stroller can be adapted to that as well. Just you wait, there is even more. The 2016 Vista Stroller can even hold a 3rd child with the Piggyback Ride-Along Board attachment, which allows a walker to hop on for a ride. This stroller has an answer for every scenario on top of being slick and modern in looks.

Baby Jogger 2014 City Mini GT Double Stroller

best double strollers

If you’re looking for a double jogging stroller that fits all your needs, from grocery shopping to off the beaten path hikes, this is the one for you. The wheels are built to last and the hand brake is super user-friendly. A huge bonus is that the seat backs are longer meaning they can accommodate taller kids, so this stroller will last you as long as your kids will even want to sit in it. Did we mention it’s specially built to increase airflow? If you’re in hotter weather this is definitely something to take into account.

Joovy Caboose Ultralight

Joovy took their original stroller kept all the sturdiness and versatility, but lost 4 lbs to create the Joovy Caboose Ultralight.

On top of that it folds up easily and small enough to fit in most car trunks. This stroller reclines all the way back for nap time because Joovy understands that missing a nap can turn ugly real quick.

Stroller Weight: 23.5 lbs (WOW!)

Age Range: 90 lbs

Chicco Cortina Together Double

The Chicco Cortina Together is the perfect option for anyone who needs a double stroller on a budget. It’s reasonably priced and grows with your family, from infant car seats to some of the tallest seats that exist in a double stroller making it comfortable for older children. We love that the storage bag is very large and can be zippered shut. It folds up fairly well but isn’t the best in the game. The shades are also a bit disappointing, but these are small sacrifices to make when you consider the lower cost. The stroller is still made of high-quality materials and will surely get the job done.

Stroller Weight: 34 lbs

Age Range: Up to 40 lbs in each seat

Baby Trend Sit n Stand Double Stroller

best double strollers

Baby Trend kept mama in mind when they finally made a double stroller with a snack tray and cup holder not only for each child but for you as well!

It is a great option for parents who think their child will be growing out of a seat soon but may want to add it back on for particularly long trips. You can easily fold this stroller with one hand because with two kiddos you need all the free hands you can get.

We know that the name of this stroller has probably already caught your attention, and we are here to assure you it will actually be a much smoother ride than one from a donkey. This is the perfect day to day double stroller if you need something narrow but sturdy and capable of converting into different configurations. It is one of the few double strollers that won’t leave you worrying about fitting through doorways or aisles. Say hello to all those errands you’ve been missing! You can attach two bassinets, two seats, or one of each. The seats can also face forwards or backward, just in case someone needs a little extra attention. It is not the easiest stroller to fold up, but if it’s something you use every day you might not even need to get into that.

Stroller Weight: 33 lbs

Age Range: Newborn to 37 lbs in each chair

Best Double Umbrella Strollers

Chicco Echo Twin

This is probably my favorite of the double umbrella strollers. It’s pretty sturdy meaning it will last you through some great adventures and/or errands, but still has the compact feel that you want. This stroller is little heavier but ergonomically easy to tote around with a handle, and at least you can count carrying it as your bonus workout. It’s made to fit just about perfectly through any door frame. It has literally everything on the checklist from maneuverability to the 5 point harness, and that’s why a recommend it so highly.

This stroller has pretty much everything on the checklist, including a great canopy and amazing underneath storage.

UPPAbaby G-Link

There is both a 2016 model and a 2018 model out right now, depending on your budget both make a great choice. Biggest perk, it’s only 24 lbs so you should be able to carry it anywhere.

Some of you are probably big fans of the tandem stroller. Well, this double umbrella stroller is actually a tandem which is pretty rare. It has a lot of checklist items like reclining seats, super compact and easy folding mechanism, and a 5 point harness. Although the seats are a little small and the leg room squishy, so it’s best for smaller or younger kiddos. Bonus, you can fit one car seat in it if need be!

Kolcraft Cloud Double

best double strollers

This is another really well-priced stroller making it worth checking out. It’s especially great if you are making this purchase in addition to your other stroller.

The seats recline a bit, it’s easy to maneuver and transport and the canopies are pretty large.

Maxi Cosi Dana for 2

best double strollers

I love the sleek all-black look of the Maxi Cosi, but more than just looks it’s really easy to push with a middle handle for extra control and has super roomy seats for your babies. It can hold two newborn car seats, which is a pretty unique and useful feature. Its main downfall is that it’s not the lightest of umbrella strollers.

BOB 2016 Revolution Flex Duallie
