The Freeloader Child Carrier was conceived of while co-founder Erick Jansen was traveling through the streets of Paris with his then 4 year-old daughter Sam. Sam was mostly capable of hiking through the city each day, but inevitably she would hit a wall and the adventure would end for the day. He wanted to build a carrier that would allow for all of the family to be together and join the adventures all of the time. He resolved to build a lightweight, portable child carrier that was surprisingly compact, but could fold-down for ease of use. Something versatile, compact, that helps extend the adventure without compromising comfort, safety or ease of use. A carrier that would allow the entire family to join the adventure all of the time!
