Nailed it!

I've been using the S.02 Baby Carrier Echo Kit for the past 3 weeks now with my 4 month old daughter. This is a great product. I love the adjustability of it. It took me a few walks to get it dialed in, but once it was adjusted appropriately, it carries extremely well with no undue neck or back strain. The carrier has been designed as a piece of gear with high quality material and quality buckles. The ability to attached a backpack to it is a game changer. I no longer need to bring an additional pack when we go on hikes. Also, it is pretty stylish. Love the product, I recommend it highly.

Highly Recommend!

This carrier is incredible! After much testing, we find that it's so much easier to get our little guy in and out of this than it is in other carriers. They did a great job making the adjustments and release system super user friendly--definitely something that is missing in other brands. The material is incredibly durable and comfortable. From a little t-shirt to a bulky jacket, we can easily adjust the straps accordingly. Cannot say enough good things about it!

Fantastic Carrier

We recently had our second child and I now have this item. I wish I would have had it for our first child. It looks nice and it fits very well, and I use it almost every time we leave the house together, and even sometimes at home. I have not yet purchased any of the attachments, however I will be looking into it in the near future. I most definitely recommend this item to anyone!

Outside Doing What We Love with Mission Critical

My daughter Lilli loves being outside. As soon as I get the baby carrier ready, her face lights up and she giggles and pumps her legs. I love being outside as well, and have always taken Lilli on walks with me or outside to do yard work. After she was born, I found an old baby carrier with these horribly precarious straps that made her Mom super nervous. The Mission Critical Baby Carrier S.02 has been a godsend! It's super easy to get her in and out of it, and both her and I are comfortable wearing it. Most importantly, we feel like our daughter is safely secured while strapped in. I can move confidently along the trail and don't have to worry if I bend over to grab something. The many accessories are cool too! I can cover her head with the sun visor, or secure her more tightly with the added leg strap supports. I can also loosen them to allow her more freedom. The Mission Critical Baby Carrier is intuitive to the wants and needs of both the parent and child. Baby Lilli and I love our new carrier. Thank you Mission Critical for providing a safe and versatile method for us to spend time together, outside doing what we love.

Quality Carrier:

My arms have been eagerly waiting our little one to turn 12 weeks so we could finally test out our S.02 baby carrier and it hasn’t let us down. The straps and clips are easily adjustable and allow simple customization of fit to insure both carrier and carried are comfortable whether you wear on your front or back. Ease of use doesn’t compromise quality, the little one feels safely secured and it is simple to get even the most wiggle of munchkins in and out. The look is rugged yet stylish so I’m comfortable wearing out whether we are on a hike, headed to a farmers market, wondering aimlessly around the block so the crying stops, or schmoozing it up at a winery. The material seems ready to take on anything that can be thrown it’s way (rain, mud, beers, or even baby goop) and be easily wiped clean. Would highly recommend this carrier to anyone’s baby list must haves.

Amazing carrier!

This is the best baby hiking carrier! My husband and I were avid hikers pre-baby and worried that we wouldn't be able to continue with our typical, rigorous hikes post-baby. With Mission Critical, we can still do it all. We love how comfortable it is and how easy it is to adjust - no other carrier comes close. If you want to stay active with your little one, this is the best carrier.

Disney trip

I recently acquired a System 02 and took it for a test drive on a 5 day family trip to Disney in Orlando, FL. This carrier met and exceeded all of my expectations. My wife and I have a three year old and we had all the standard Phil and Teds, Ergo baby carriers, etc. Our newest member is 14 weeks old and the System 02 was a game changer for me. Super comfortable on my back for long days trolling around theme parks. Very breathable and comfortable for my son, facing both forward to catch some views and backward when nap time hit. It is definitely the carrier most aesthetically targeted for dads. I had multiple compliments and inquiries as to where I got it. I do not have any accessories yet but I really could have used a day pack or backpack attachment instead of lugging around our standard diaper bag. I highly recommend this for any high functioning family with plans to take the kids out and about.

Best baby carrier I’ve even owned!!

Wow, this baby carrier is amazing. It is by far the most comfortable carrier I’ve ever used. I have had back and neck problems including 8 surgeries and this carrier is padded and distributes the weight smoothly so I don’t suffer while enjoying time with my little munchkin!!! I would highly recommend this carrier and love the attachment bags, best baby gear on the market by far!

Takes a load off

Love the Baby carrier and so does my son. Very easy to get him in and out off. All of the weight comes off your shoulders with the strap around your waist. Can easily carry for hours on end. Ideally I would have pockets or attachments to carry supplies

A do-it-all carrier that I don't need to think about

Like many new parents, we have owned / borrowed / tested a lot of carriers. I've always been looking for a do-it-all model that I don't need to think about; one I can strap on at any time, in any weather, with any combination if clothing (kids and mine). One of the main issues with other more general-purpose carriers is the constant fiddling with adjustments as uses change. Strapping on while holding screaming, sleep-needing kid is like spilling your coffee on yourself while squeezing into behind your steering wheel after your tiny spouse had slid the drivers seat all the way forward. This carriers quick-adjust/release system gets right into place while juggling the wiggler, and the hiking-pack material just feels right. I know you can wash most carriers, but getting mud, salt and oil on cotton always puts me on edge; this one can take some abuse. The add-on packs are great too. Instead of slinging the city-slicker diaper bag on top of shoulder straps, I can just click the supplies on and off for a walk in the yard or a hike down the road. I've had a fair amount of gear from ultralight tech companies like Gossamer and ULA, and this clearly drew design influences from the right places. I haven't tried the S01 versions, but I prefer the styling of the S02 - less millitary police, more long-distance runner. I can't see why I'd need anything else at this point, anyways.

EXACTLY What I Wanted

When I first tried this on, I knew it was the right choice. Strong. Durable. Comfortable. Everything I needed to keep me and my daughter moving in style. I love how sturdy the material, straps and pockets all are. You can tell they're made with attention to detail. I have zero worries about this thing breaking on us. It's also soft in all the right places - for both of us. It's doesn't dig into my hips or shoulders, nor does it feel too rough on her sensitive areas. The padding makes a huge difference. I picked the gray, but I could also see how the black would be a nice choice for me - given my style. Maybe I'll get a 2nd one. So yes, I LOVE THIS CARRIER!!! THANK YOU!!!
