Why we made this
A Macpac classic, the Vamoose child carrier has been taking small children along for the journey for years.
  • Product Description
    Take your little explorer along for the adventure with the Vamoose. This market-leading child carrier is a Macpac classic, and has been taking small children hiking for years. In recent years it's been updated with a simplified frame, reduced weight, improved stability and a fun and colourful ‘Kiwi’ cockpit print. The Vamoose is all about comfort, for both parent and child, with a sturdy hip belt for excellent weight distribution and an adjustable seat with a three stage hook-n-clip system that ‘grows' with your child. Strong and durable, it can handle loads of up to 20 kilos and has a storage capacity of 19 litres with a detachable day pack. Easy to remove, this day pack can be unzipped off the carrier for convenience and a lighter load. The Vamoose package includes our Sombrero sunshade and Rainbow rain cover, and is also compatible with our child neck pillow (not included). Please read the warning label on your child carrier carefully prior to use.

  • Care
    You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush
    Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap and Nikwax Tech Wash®
    Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
    Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty
    Always try to keep the zip teeth as clean as possible
    Wash zip teeth with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics

Fantastic carrier for NZ tracks
This carrier is fantastic! Parents AND baby love it. It's very comfortable to wear, the straps and the belt are nicely padded and easy to adjust. We can easily swap carrier with my husband even if we don't have the same build.
There is plenty of room to store everything baby and parents need. We don't even use the second backpack that attaches to the top of the carrier. The sunshade works well and the mosquito net is a great feature.
The carrier also folds reasonably flat for storage and it's not too big so I'm pretty sure it would fit in the plane for the holidays overseas.

If I had one thing to complain about it would be the lack of pocket for a camelbag. That would make the carrier's life much easier!
Alright I have a second thing to complain about: the colour. It's a child carrier but its colour is a dull mud green so sad it's depressing to look at. The Possum model is a nice blue colour, why go for grey-green on the Vamoose?

Quality Product
Really impressed. Very comfortable. Very versatile and functional. I'd use this pack three days a week lugging my 6 to now 9 month old lad around the farm and can't recommend it highly enough!

Thanks Macpac for providing such unbelievably good value!
