Up to all day hikes with no problems. Normally top end carriers with all the storage that you would need and often a zip-off or removable bag for versatile storage options (i.e. easy to nip for a pub lunch without having to empty all of your baby's gear from the bottom pocket!). Additional comfort features on the harness for the wearer to ensure a comfortable fit. View our guide to choosing the best child carrier for you.
May lack some of the additional harness comfort features but still up to all day hikes. Plenty of storage, but lacking the versitilty of zip-off or removeable bags. View our guide to choosing the best child carrier for you.
Still a very good harness system for a great level of comfort but, as there's not much need for it, some of the storage space and maybe some other extra features have been removed. View our guide to choosing the best child carrier for you.
Great for travelling and sometimes come with a specially designed bag to put the carrier in. However, they still offer a good level of comfort and are very popular with customers who want a smaller lightweight carrier with little fussiness about it. Normally best for customers who fall within the average height range of 5'4" to 6', but there are some exceptions (see individual model information).

These carriers are what they are – ideal for short walks, trips around town, or holidays where space is a premium. They often have limited, if any, storage and usually have no size adjustability. Therefore, those at the taller end of the height spectrum may find it more difficult to get a good fit. View our guide to choosing the best child carrier for you.
