    We have a Littlelife. I also hear good things about Macpac.

    Whatever you go for spend as much cash and time deciding as you would for a high end long distance trekking pack. You will be carrying a lot of weight in it and a good belt and harness is mandatory.

    Can recommend Macpac. Very comfy having a proper rucksack back with lots of adjustments. Kids used to love it being carried apart from when they'd pinch my hat.

    Macpac vamose ( I think that's how it's spelt) quality bit of kit, carry kids upto four year old and they spread the load well over your back. Not cheap but you can wear them all day with no issues

    Macpac's can be cheap if you sell them later. Bought my vamoose for £90 off ebay a few years back, just sold it to my boss for £80. Was really comfy but I found that it got very little use in incleement weather – the tots staying still just don't stay warm.

    ebay buys are fine, but check that the model fits you first. Macpacs are too short in the back for me (but then I have a monster back and short legs). Others may be too broad or narrow in the shoulder. Take the time and get a good fit.

    we have the older version of this
    littlelife carrier

    Use it everyday, it is excellent. Massive storage pocket for lunch, nappies etc, usefull instep for supporting rucksack when loading kiddie and by far the most comfortable fit of any pack I have used (including top end expedition packs) Simple design that works well, worth every penny!

    macpack very good

    We used our macpac for three kids over 10 years … really good quality. Make sure you get one with the sun canopy and rain cover though…enjoy!
