    Take your little explorer along for the ride with the Possum 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 Possum 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, the Possum Child Carrier has a 13 litre storage capacity and is perfect for adventurous families. It’s also compatible with our optional child carrier accessories: the Sombrero sunshade, Rainbow rain cover and neck pillow. Please note, this child carrier has a 20 kg maximum weight limit.

  • 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 clean — wash with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics
    Do not tumble dry, iron or dryclean

Sunshade is included?
Azy M on Dec 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question Azy. Optional accessories include:
* Sombrero Sunshade (code 114439)
* Rainbow Rain Cover (code 114440)
* Neck Pillow (code 114118)
Hello Macpac, are the sunshade and raincovers available and do they fit the older versions of the Possum as well? Thank you.
Hellothere on Mar 23, 2021

This may depend on how old the Possum is. Updates over the years may mean they are not compatible. We are currently out of stock of the Sombrero, which is needed to use the rain cover.

What is minimum age for this if using neck pillow?
Rosa M on Jan 5, 2021

There is no minimum age as such, but the child should be able to sit up unsupported.

Does the 20kg max load refer to the child being carried, or the combination of child and whatever is put in the 13 litres storage?
Benito on Oct 13, 2019

The 20kg is the max load for the child carrier seat.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
Hi, from what age/weight can this be used? Thanks
Cecile on Sep 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cecilie,

We don't have any specific age/weight where this can be used. The Possum can handle loads of up to 20 kilos.

Kind regards,
Macpac Team
I have an older Possum and wonder if the 20 kg capacity is the same for that one?
Christian L on Jun 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Christian - thank you for your comment. Models as far back as 2008 had a capacity of 20kg. There is a small production tag somewhere that has the production date on it. All the best!
I have an older possum child carrier that the backpack harness has come away from the back support. Can this be replaced?
David A on Apr 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello David. Please being the pack into any Macpac store and they will be able to assess your options, more likely than not we can sent the pack to our repairs team to have broken pieces fixed. We hope this helps. Thanks.
