phil & teds Metro Backpack Carrier: Father’s Day Pick

Get Out and PLAY Event – Day 18

The more I learn about Phil&Teds, the more I covet every single item they make.  From the moment I started thinking babies, there was one children’s company that just stood out in every way.  Maybe it’s their modern and minimalistic design, or maybe it’s the fact that my husband is like a {unpaid} salesman for the company, but it always seemed we came back to Phil&Teds whenever we were discussing our ultimate baby wish list. 

20410_5Now that we’ve got two kidlets to chase after, the idea of “hands free” is not a luxury, it’s a survival skill.  With two kids comes two sets of gear and accessories, as well as twice the opportunity for disaster, all of which forces you to be prepared on a level you never thought possible.  Phil&Teds understands that gear that is smarter and more efficient makes everything more fun, which is why even those without children are likely to have a soft spot for this fun company that set out to change parenting on the go. 

Our latest love is the Phil&Teds Metro Backpack Carrier that is perfect for the urban wild as well as the great outdoors.  Made with heavy duty rip-stop and waterproof materials with a serious metal framed 20410carrier, the Metro makes it possible to take your tyke anywhere that you can go, and is bound to be the daddy pick of carriers.

Features of the Metro Backpack Carrier we’re raving about: a custom fit with a fully adjustable back height and hip belt which means mama and daddy-o can both use it, a slim profile that makes it ideal for crowded spaces as well as enjoying nature, a lightweight aluminum frame {4.4lbs} that holds plenty of gear along with baby, and a small folded profile that doesn’t take up excess space when not in use. 

20410_2In addition to all these features that make it a top pick for performance, the Metro is also supremely comfortable for you and for baby even for long excursions.  It comes with firm padded shoulder straps and ventilating mesh back pads for you and a super soft and adjustable child seat for the little one that makes it one of the most comfortable carriers we have tried.  Should weather threaten your good time, the Metro comes standard with a sunhood as well as a removable wind/rain cover to keep your little one protected and secure.

When brainstorming the best uses for the  Metro Backpack, we had  no shortage of Metro with Baby places that a slim profile backpack carrier would be the ideal choice.  From outdoor concerts and festivals to beach walks and rugged trails, the Metro Backpack is the perfect choice for anytime you want the luxury of walking at adult speed with little ones in tow but don’t want to look like you just came down from the mountains.  We extensively tested this throughout the past month at various locations in the Pacific Northwest and found that the Metro is great and roomy without feeling like overkill for just a quick walk to the cornerstore and back.

If you are going for the Mountain Man look and feel, Phil&Teds has the Escape Backpack Carrier that is ideal for storing extra gear for the great outdoors.  With a zip off Inside of metro carrierdaypack, hydration pack, and roomy cargo areas, it would be the ideal choice for the rural parent.

No matter what your adventure, Phil&Teds has you covered this Father’s Day and beyond.  You can buy the Metro Backpack Carrier at the Phil&Teds direct or at numerous local retailers throughout North America and the world over.  Still not sure what Dad of the Year would like?  Get him a Gift Voucher from the Phil&Teds site
