The North Face’s Japan branch has released its own take on a baby carrier.
Inspired by mountaineering backpacks, the carrier is a sturdy, lightweight unit that can be neatly stashed inside a drawstring pouch. Worn on the chest or back, it's essentially a harness that allows hands-free transport of children ages one to three years old.
An explanatory video, somewhat confusing for childless viewers, demonstrates the myriad ways — thanks to an abundance of adjustable straps and buckles — that the carrier can be worn. It's even constructed with a built-in hood to keep your baby's noggin safe from the elements, as well as a mesh compartment for essentials.
