Sherpani Rumba Baby Carrier Gets You to the Crag!

By: 0 Comments

So you had a baby.  Yep, this is a big deal for sure but you are still a rock climber so you have some things to sort out.  First, you have to get that baby to the crag.  When your tyke still has a wobbly neck–up to 4 months or so–you’ll need a front carrier or a sling, but once they have control of their head, it is time to invest in a larger carrier.  Our pick for the carrier with the best feature set is the Sherpani Rumba (7 lbs. 8 oz., $229).  First you get a comfortable, super-beefy expedition suspension system that has many adjustment points including the on-the-fly adjustment system to make it easier to switch users.  A five point system allows you to secure your baby easily in the seat.  A series of cargo pockets allows you carry up to 2800 cu. in. of stuff–the most cargo space of any carrier.  The kick stand allows for a secure stand alone position.  A well-designed sun shade/rain cover is included, as are stirrups.  The carrier is rated to 70 pounds:  50 for the kid, 20 in cargo.  Sherpani also offers the Rumba Superlight which offers a trimmed down feature set and price tag (4 lbs. 12 oz., $169).
