NOMIS Kid Piggybacker
Product DescriptionThe multi-award winning Piggyback Rider engages parents with their children in active transport, year round on every outing (at the ball game, hiking, or just around town) by creating a mutually enjoyable, effortless way to carry toddlers at your back. While the uncompromising engineering of the Piggyback Rider remains unchanged, a number of intelligent updates to the previous NILOC model have been made. These include a more robust foam core for comfort, a utility pocket on the front, a rear zip pocket for small item, basic child safety harness and a completely redesigned multi-use storage bag. The innovative, unisex design incorporates standard backpack adjustments to distribute the child's weight at your core, while they stand firmly on the tempered aluminum bar supported by the shoulder carrier. For safety, the child holds integrated grab handles and is secured by either the basic or deluxe safety harness. Children love the height advantage, rest, quality time and longer adventures, while you walk with a natural upright posture. Ride the bar!

Top ReviewsI have a LOVE HATE relationship with the Piggyback Rider

I wanted to LOVE this, I really did. And I can see where it may be great for younger riders, but certainly not up to 60lbs. It may support that much, but in no way, shape or form can anyone comfortable carry that much. I read the reviews, many, many times about it nor being comfortable for heavier riders, but I figured I carry my (just) 4yo, 46lb son on my shoulders anyway, so how much more difficult could it be? I said to myself "It will be different for me." I even thought it may be easier, since I was used to hiking with his weight on my shoulders anyway. And I saw a youtube (video with a 7yo rifing comfortable, so I thought I could even use it for my (almost) 6yo. That couldn't be further from the truth. My son is "tall" so I'm told, and even at just 4, I had to position the bar just under my butt for him to not be falling over my head. This left no room for his feet to be on the bar comfortably (guess my butt is as wide as the bar) Now, again, I wanted to LOVE this, and I did......just NOT for anyone over, say 35lbs. I took my sons friend for a "ride" and he was easy, but again, shorter and much lighter. The reason for this purchase was for my kids to have a "rest" during the 5k races they do with my husband and I. Sort of a "jump on, jump off" situation. My final analogy......for a younger child, this may be your answer! For an older child, not so much......
Really wanted to like it--but didn't

I live in a crowded Asian capital where strollers are impractical (if sidewalks even exist, they are likely to be blocked by telephone poles, street vendors, etc.) My youngest is three--too big for most carriers but too small to walk for miles in tropical heat. The Piggyback Rider seemed like a good alternative to carrying him in my arms or on my shoulders. I really WANT to like this product because there doesn't seem to be anything else on the market that meets my needs. But my first attempts to use it, for about 15 minutes at a time, have resulted in sore shoulders and a tired back. I'm not particularly big (5'5") but I am athletic and my toddler is unusually small (26 pounds). I'll keep trying to adjust it and hope for better results.
UPDATE: Just couldn't adjust it to make it comfortable. Without a waist strap, my child's entire weight was on my shoulders. I was sore for an entire day after using it for an hour. I returned it. :(

I have twins, 3 year olds. I'm a mommy who buys, researches everything just to make it easier and comfortable for twins even if it last a year it's worth it to me. From carriers which are too hot for me and the twins it wasn't working. Then purchased hip seats for both my husband and I. It's great but your still leaning on a hip and their getting bigger so becoming uncomfortable, and you still gotta hold their back not hands free. Then I came across this I was like genius!!!! I wanna start hiking again and if I got one on my back I can put a harness on other and have them safe by me. As I received it I was like a little girl opening gifts on Christmas morning. A mom that really should open a YouTube to review kids stuff would help many parents save money or make decisions easy to get or not get. Anyways the kids laughed and giggled when I got it in. It's so simple to strap up, got a little use to having them step on and balance on bar as they are only 3.
Very good, great product I love they love! I really want to get another with the water for my husband!!!! Test that out.
The only thing is I wish their was better more secure clips to hold child in and shoulder pads for parents and child more padded only thing I would definitely change and make a huge difference.
But it's worth purchasing for uses like Disney, parades, heavily crowded functions, shorter hikes.
Great Design, Glad I bought it.

I've only just began my journey with the Piggyback Rider. This allows me to go for long walks without worrying about my toddler getting tired. This is perfect to carry my 3 year old who is 32 lbs. He loves riding on it. But to test this unit out we went for a 4 mile walk around a park that is exactly 4 miles around. I must say that it's not the greatest for the 4 mile walk because after about 3 miles things start hurting. (Even the straps [assuming you're walking in a t-shirt and your child is 30+ lbs. like in my situation] anyway as comfy as the straps seem and even though the material is high quality and breathable, it starts ripping into your skin on your shoulders.) and that cute little monkey on your back now feels like a gorilla! So now I've limited it to about 2.5 miles walking near my house. I can see this will be great to trips to our local amusement parks (Knott's, Disneyland, Magic Mountain) and great for walks on the beach. I've used it twice and already have gotten a lot of stares and compliments as well from strangers.
Now for the hidden (conditioning) I'm so amazed at my energy level. I play intense 5 on 5 basketball with guys in their 20's and I can't believe how light on my feet I was laterally and even jumping after using The Piggyback Rider. (I'm no Kobe but I scored 13 pts the last game). So this conditions you in many other ways indirectly.
We loved the overall idea of this product

We loved the overall idea of this product. But on our first hike, which was only 2.2 miles. The foot support rubbed the strap inside of it to the point it started to break. To prevent this you have to make sure the foot support bar is level with the brackets in each place. Ours was pretty level but through the hike it had to have stretched or the brackets moved. I was disappointed in the production of the product but still like the idea. Just poorly made.
Easy to use and the kids LOVE it!!!!

I knew that both of my grandchildren would love this great product. The instructions for wearing the device were clear and it is made of the highest quality components. I drew so many questions from those who saw us using it that I printed out some business cards with the name of the carrier and the URL of its web site. I carry them with me in the carrying bag whenever I use it.
Piggyback rider- don't opt up for the back pack
by S Lauffer (3 out of 5 stars)

As a backpack, it is fine and separately as a kid carrier it is fine just not both together. If you fill up the backpack with a days worth of stuff then your kid can't ride comfortably as the have to wrap themselves around a full pack. If you want to use as kid carrier, you need to pack light or be able to remove the stuff from the bag. Otherwise it is fine. So my recommendation is to stick with the basic kid carrier.

The child thought is was great fun and if one of the tabs for her to hold onto hadn't torn out almost right way I would have liked it too. Used it for a 10K hill hike which she walked part of the time and rode part time. Quality control needs to be improved I think.
Not a bad idea, just needs some more development

Not a bad idea, just needs some more development. Chest harness broke after 10-15 uses. Most of the weight is on your back, so unlike an actual backpack in that regard. In an actual backpack, some if not most of the weight is on your waist. It worked great a few times but overall, I wouldn't get it again.
Cooper loved this!

Our 2 year old grandson Cooper loves standing on PawPaw's Piggyback Rider. He was able to enjoy all the lights, sights and sounds of Christmas along the San Antonio Riverwalk. It certainly beats pushing a stroller and Coop not being able to see anything other than people's legs! Also, a lot of people asked where we got it. Awesome product!
