There’s nothing better than getting out in the fresh air and exploring nature with your little one, especially on long hikes.  The Thule Sapling, an innovative child carrier backpack gives your child the best view and a comfortable, secure ride. It’s comfortable for the parent with all the smart features and resilient materials you’d expect from a Thule hiking backpack.

With two options to choose from, the Thule Sapling and Thule Sapling Elite, both available in the Thule Slate and Cobalt colours, provide comfortable carrying thanks to smart features, giving you peace of mind that you can safely bring your most precious cargo along on all hikes and outdoor adventures:

The back panel and hipbelt are quick and easy to adjust so you can walk great distances and comfortably share the load between parents without losing your rhythm, while the plush, height adjustable, ergonomic seat efficiently distributes the child’s weight.

A convenient water reservoir pocket and zippered compartment provides additional storage for essentials and added convenience when on the go.

Little ones can rest their legs on the stirrups and the deployable sunshade keeps them cool and protected from the harsh sun.

Dual access loading allows you to load your child from the top or side of the carrier and a breathable back panel provides padding and support at critical contact points, allowing air to circulate around your back, keeping you cool

The mirror on the Thule Sapling Elite also lets you monitor your precious cargo and the Sapling Rain Cover (sold separately) ensures that your little one will stay dry in the wet conditions.

Thule Active with Kids products make it easier for you to live an active life with your kids and the child carrier backpacks are tested to the limit and beyond to ensure that you and your child are free to enjoy your day on the trail.
