Like I've mentioned before, I love carriers because they eliminate the need for a stroller on short trips. The Action carrier allows me to travel with my 4-year-old without the need for a stroller. My 4-year-old is very independent and loves to walk but when we go to Disneyland or fairs he gets tired of walking by the end of the day. It's nice to have the Action carrier on hand so he can hitch a ride or take a short nap.
Action makes a variety of carriers made for babies or toddlers. I have the toddler carrier which is 3 inches taller in the body than their regular carrier, as well as offering an inch longer hood and 2 inches smaller in the shoulder webbing (because they are used mostly for back carries and gives you a tighter fit). The base of the “seat” is 19 inches across. All of the webbing on the toddler carrier is the same as their standard carrier.
The Action carrier has held up very nicely. I feel like my child is safe and secure. I especially love that it can hold a child from 15-45lbs! That's a lot of weight and a great work out for mom or dad! The Action carrier has a clip that sits just above you hip to alleviate the tension on your shoulders.
And a chest clip that helps secure the carrier and not having the shoulder straps slide off your shoulders.
The flip hood that is attached is nice but my son is so tall that it didn't fit over his head. Another thing I wish it had is a storage pocket of some sort. I love to travel light and don't always like to carry my purse. But the over all look, feel and function of the carrier meet my expectations.
Good luck to everyone that enters this great giveaway!!
