Could anyone recommend a baby carrier backpack that would fit 6ft 7in DH please? We are going away on holiday and plan to do a bit of walking. DD will be 10mo by the time we go away. Thanks.

Hey! Our boba 4g fits my DH who is a similar height, but we haven't tried it with the baby in yet! I'm interesred to see what gets recommended in terms of proper backpack carriers.

DH is 6'4" and wears DD in a Manduca happily. We also have a MacPac for more rugged walking, which is a hard, structured backpack carrier.

We use a MacPac for hiking, I would have thought it fits most men as it's bloody massive (fits my 6 ft brother no probs)! The kids love it because they sit really high up- they love being taller than mummy. Is there a decent hiking shop near you where he could go and try a couple for size?
