PARENTS! What’s your preferred method of transportation for your young ones?
There’s always been an association with child carriers and hiking—we’ve all seen that super parent marching uphill with both a young one and gear onboard for an epic day hike or even an over-nighter. But that’s not all carriers are great for!
More and more parents are starting to question and replace their strollers with child carriers. Why? Turns out the convenience of a carrier goes beyond just hiking.
- Accessibility. A lot of places around the world aren’t stroller friendly. Staircases etc are everywhere… Accessibility can be a huge issue!
- Price. Strollers can get expensive quick. Kid carriers can as well… but are almost always a fraction of the price. You can get a super high-quality carrier for around $400. A stroller will be between $600-1000.
- Space. Strollers are massive and can take up your entire trunk. A carrier is significantly smaller…
- Functionality. Carriers now have an equal amount of pockets and storage space for all your needs. They have also been engineered to perfection so that your child enjoy’s the experience. Yes, they will sleep really well in them!! 😉
