I was recently sent a phil & teds Metro Baby Backpack to review. This carrier offers superior functionality for when you need to keep your hands free or when a stroller is just not an option. Backpack has loads of storage to hold everything you need and more. Stable, self standing fold out base for controlled loading is super handy. Tough, washable, waterproof nylon 300 & 600 denier fabric that with hold up on all your adventures and is easy to clean. Slide-adjust harness system (infinite adjustment in 2-single steps) makes it super easy to keep your baby secure. Folds flat for easy storage when not in use. Sunhood with removable wind and rain cover is included as well as a padding changing mat for easy changes on the go. My husband thought this carrier was light and comfortable and Luke enjoyed it too. It is great for walks in the woods when the terrain will not allow a stoller. Also great for tight places where you want your baby close and secure. It was super easy to load and unload Luke from this backpack carrier and it is so compact when not in use it is easy to store on the top of a closet, in the trunk or under the bed. If you are looking for a backpack carrier that is lightweight, comfortable and will go the distance, you should take a look at the phil & teds Metro. The retail price on this backpack carrier is $179.99.
