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 ride with the Vamoose Child Carrier — designed to be safe and stable, this child carrier is all about comfort for both parent and child. With a colourful 'kiwi' print, the Vamoose has a breathable Explorer harness with a wide, padded hip belt for effective weight distribution and overall pack stability. The adjustable child seat, with a three stage hook-n-clip harness system, ‘grows' with your child and helps to keep them secure on the go. Made from durable fabrics with plenty of pockets for extra gear — it has a 19 litre storage capacity and a detachable day pack — the Vamoose Child Carrier is perfect for adventurous families. Easy to remove, the day pack unzips off the carrier for everyday convenience or when you need to share the load. The Vamoose Child Carrier includes our Sombrero sunshade and Rainbow rain cover for unpredictable weather days. It's also compatible with our child neck pillow but this is sold separately.
    Please read the warning label on your child carrier carefully prior to use.

    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

This is an amazing pack. We love the comfort, baby loves it, and it looks great. Delivery was prompt. The only thing that we do not appreciate is the lack of instructions for the shade cover. This was a key feature that we looked for in a pack and the instructions do not include how to install. We do not live near a store so heading in to ask for help is not an option, and besides, it really should be included at this price point.

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!

Hi there, where can I find the cover for the pack (as shown in the pictures) not the rain cover, just the cover?
dee l on Dec 17, 2019

The cover on the picture is the rain cover - It is in the backpack on the back with the sunshade in it also.

Kind regards,
The Macpac team
