I have been obsessed with finding a new carrier for mason. The eurgo was so good to us but reality: mason is growing up! So I've been on the search so I didn't have to spend $$. I finally found one on Craigslist in our price range jumped on it. Come to find out it was my good friend Laurie selling hers! Silly. Anyways I love it and it is perfect whether or not I'm hiking a mountain or just containing the beast! It's a Kellty kids carrier. It comes with a sun/rain shield and a backpack. It also stand on its own when its off your shoulders.
Mason looks less than thrilled because it means he doesn't get to run in the mud anymore! (I let him do plenty of that before he went in!)
