Hello Mission Critical, I just received the S.02 Backpack. I get what you were thinking. I can use it anywhere and you have built-in pockets and add ons like a hydration pack so I don't throw it away when my kids grow up, and provide a space that is safe for sunglasses and a laptop so my baby bag can be used as a regular bag later. And provide TWO places for a bottle/water bottle! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!! I used to love trying to figure out which side I can put my bottle on and to top that you made them deep so my tall water bottles won't fall out. How am I now supposed to feel like a complete ******* now that I cannot look like a fool trying to put a bottle away or bending over and having **** fall out? You are making it too easy. I have 3 kids 7, 2.5, and 1 and I am now going to be obligated to carry stuff comfortably while not looking like a person carrying babyshit in an non-practicable bag with solely one purpose. Plus now I am going to have to keep this bag for a while since you actually made this bag to last and made it more versatile so it's not just a "diaper bag". I have a Timbuk2 Rogue backpack I use daily, and an AER Travel Pack 2 for traveling, and now they are obsolete. What the **** am I supposed to do with them? You are basically replacing over $300 of gear with your backpack. I am ****** that did not purchase this sooner. I currently have the S.01 Balance Kit and damn it feels good and I don't feel like some sort of ****** putting it on and actually feel like a BADASS *** Dad wearing it. I want to thank you for altering my order (color) for the S.01 order I placed previously so quickly. I haven't posted many pictures wearing and using it because my family is soo Damn Good Looking you would probably use them on social media. I don't know if you have heard of Zyzz ( Australian Bodybuilder RIP 8.9.2011) but we are very "aesthetic" and your product only intensifies our exquisite looks. Thank you again for a quality bag that not only looks good, feels good, and makes me tingle all over when I put it on. Sincerely, Jason
Really great and my son loved it for his new baby daughter. Ordering was easy Peasy and it arrived with no issues
this carrier is the best! My hubby LOVES that he can carry the baby & the toddler in the same model of carrier. He also likes that its not a girly mom carrier. We use it for our toddler on hikes and look forward to using it more with the baby this winter since she will be so little!
My husband loves it!
