Osprey Poco vs Deuter Kid Comfort

If you need to bring younger people with you, these backpacks might be a great help.

The Osprey Poco is designed with a child carrier to make bringing along your kids much easier with additional harnesses and a seat belt to complete the experience. Buy it if you want your kid to stay buckled up during the trip.

The Deuter Kid Comfort is intended for those who want their kids to have a more relaxed camping experience. Campers and trekkers who want their kids to have more space should buy this.
