Frequent questions about baby hiking carriers or Panda Child Carrier

I use Manduca/Baby Bjorn/Ergo baby. Why should I get the Panda?

Soft carriers are great for small babies. But once your child can sit on her own and is more active, Panda will be more enjoyable experience for both of you. Read more about it here.

Is the backpack carrier heavy?

Panda weights only 2.8 kg and because it is the fully adjustable backpack, you carry most of the weight on your hips. So ones your toddler can sit upright, Panda is more comfortable than other types of carriers.

How long can a child be in the carrier?

We recommend less than 2 hours. But your toddler might want to play or be active even sooner.

Do you deliver to the rural areas ?

Yes we do. Just expect, that it might take 7 business days to deliver the carrier.

How long does it take to deliver the carrier?

It depends on your location. Adelaide is usually within 1 business day, Melbourne and Sydney up to 3 days, Darwin and Perth up to 5 days, rural areas up to 7 days. Check our Estimated delivery page.

When can a child start using the carrier?

A child must have a good head control and sit upright unassisted (usually 6-8 months of age)

How tall can a child be?

It mostly depends on the height of her/his upper body. We tested Panda Carrier with a 6-year old girl as tall as 4.5 ft. The seat was in the lowest position, stirrups on the longest straps and the girl felt comfortable even under a sunroof.

What is the maximum age of a child?

The real limit is a weight of a child. On average, a 4-year old boy or a 5-year old girl are approaching the 20 kg limit.

Can the carrier travel as carry-on luggage?

Unfortunately, it can't go on-board of an aircraft. It travels as a free child luggage with the majority of airlines (e.g. Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin). Read more about it here.

Which hydration system fits into the carrier?

We recommend using hydration bladders with up to 2 litres of water. You can buy a hydration bladder in the accessories.

Do you provide a pouch or a travel bag for the carrier?

Major airlines will give you a free plastic bag where you can put the carrier for safe travels. It is more convenient than a dedicated bag. So, we don't provide a special travel bag/pouch.

Does the carrier pack flat?

The cockpit packs quite flat, and you can fold the kickstand, plus you need space for shoulder straps and a hip belt.
