  • Excerpt: www.sherpani.com Retail price: $169.95 Specs per manufacturer: The Sherpani Rumba Superlight Child Backpack Carrier is a lightweight alternative to the award-winning Rumba Backpack Carrier. As the name implies, the Sherpani Rumba Superlight backpack carrier is considerably lighter than other child carriers on the market, weighing in at just 67 oz. minimum weight. Great for around the city day trips.

2007 Sherpani Rumba Superlight Child Carrier REVIEW

Backpacking Light
8 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Citation "2007 Sherpani Rumba Superlight Child Carrier REVIEW," by Doug Johnson . BackpackingLight.com (ISSN 1537-0364). http://backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/2007_sherpani_rumba_superlight_child_carrier_review.html, 2007-08-08 03:00:00-06.
  • Pros: 5-point child harness is comfortable and secure, Framed pack carries up to 45 pounds with reasonable comfort, Baby stirrups increase leg circulation and help get out the “wiggles”, Self supporting for easy loading and unloading, 1500 cubic inch pack bag, large outside mesh pocket, and lash points provide sufficient storage for ultralight backpacking, Topper installs easily, provides good sun protection, and includes an attached rain cover for downpours
  • Cons: Perforated shoulder straps fold and pinch after extended usage, causing discomfort, Raincover doesn’t protect child’s arms and legs, A full ¾ pound heavier than the manufacturer’s claim weight, At 5 pounds 14.1 ounces with the topper, it’s still not an ultralight pack (but it’s still among the lightest on the market)

Baby Carrier
21 November 2008
  • Excerpt: The Sherpani Rumba is an extremely durable, practical, and stylish baby and child carrier that is suitable for both short jaunts as well as long hikes. What parents will love most about this Sherpani model is how much extra storage room it has, lessening your load! The Rumba not only has a storage pocket at the back of the carrier but there is also an entire pack that can be taken right off!
