Most Helpful Reviews on the Chicco Smart Support Backpack Frame Carrier.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … I am over 6 feet tall and on the large size for a woman so I usually have issues with things fitting my body size. I have a long torso and this pack actually fits me the way it is supposed to!… Also, the stand is very easy to collapse and extend…. AND the wind shield is GREAT and not included on many models that are $100 more than this Chicco! The only thing that is lame is the bag on the back of the pack…. (read more and buy it at
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – … My son never seemed very comfortable in it either. We are 5′ 7″ and 5′ 10″ with average builds, so I assumed it would fit us. In addion to that, the frame makes it bulky and hard to bring places…. (read more and buy it at

One disadvantage is that the carrier frame would probably fit someone 5’5″ or taller…. (read more and buy it at

The kickstand is also very sturdy…. I almost gave it 4 stars because it has great features, but rated it 3 because it’s so big it just sits in our garage instead of being used frequently due to the bulkiness…. (read more and buy it at
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – Bad pack for 5’3″ and 5’10” people. This is probably a great pack but not for my husband or I. We tried it on in the store with the help of 2 sales associates. It hits me too low and my husband too high and you can’t adjust everything. The sales people said that this is a common problem for a lot of people of average height…. (read more and buy it at
