We are planning a family trip to the Poconos this summer and could use a good/sturdy carrier for hikes and other periods of extended walking. I currently use an Ergo for travel, but it is starting to see some wear and has become less comfortable as my son has grown.

Ideally, the carrier would be easy to use, have a high weight limit (40 pounds or more) and comfortable to use.

Long story short, I would love something that will last me well into the preschool years.

Thanks!

For hiking, I like the deuter 3. Works great for my 35lb daughter when she starts to get tired, and it holds snacks and stuff.

yes, check out the baby eearing forum! i have both a toddler tula and a preschool size kinderpack (very similar to use and feel of ergo) and a big hiking backpack thing and the ergo type are so much more comfortable. i would recommend boyh tula and kindrrpack for comfort and length of use.
