Why we made this
A Macpac classic, the Possum 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 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 read the warning and instruction labels 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 clean — wash with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics
    Do not tumble dry, iron or dryclean

Brilliant all rounder hiking pack for you and your little one!
Absolutely love this pack. They've thought of everything, even comes with a little mirror to check on your little one when they are on your back. Very comfortable to wear and lets us go places we would never be able to otherwise. Such a great way to get your post partum fitness back while showing your little one the beauty of the natural world. I love all the storage space in this pack and how easy everything is to adjust. Thanks MacPac!

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.
