Thule Sapling

 in style BLACK


Go for amazing hikes and share the views with your child using the Thule Sapling child carrier.

This hiking baby backpack keeps you and your child comfortable thanks to Thule’s unique ErgoRide support system. In addition to the traditional support under your child’s bottom, it also provides extended support up underneath their legs to disperse their weight better.

A fully adjustable torso and hip belt gives you the perfect fit to comfortably carry your child and lets you quickly swap the pack from parent to parent. The dual access also makes it easy to load or unload your kid from the top or side panel opening.

The Thule Sapling has an open and airy feel to optimize weight and provide ventilation, so your child stays cool and comfortable. The back panel and sitting area are ventilated as well to make sure the parent stays cool and comfortable too. Plus, there is a deployable UPF 50 sunshade to keep your kid shaded from the sun.

Easily carry everything you need for a hike—the Sapling has a 22 liter gear compartment that you can access while wearing the pack through convenient side zippers when your kid needs a snack. The carrier is also hydration compatible (bladder sold separately) and features a drink tube exit port from the storage compartment. And when you need some additional storage or weather protection, the Sapling lets you easily add on other accessories (sold separately).

After a successful hiking trip, the ErgoRide child seat and drool pad are fully removable and machine washable for easy cleaning.

The Thule Sapling lets you share your love of nature with your little one.
