I kid you not, I bought about 9 different hip carriers and this is THE best one. I spent from $20 - $80 on each carrier and none of them comes close to what this one offers. I looked very meticulously for 4 important features: Storage space under the seat, a side pocket, a bottle holder, firm angle of seat. I get stopped everywhere and get asked about this ingenious invention. Seriously, my back felt like it was going to break before I started using this!
Features I wished that this pack had: grips on the seat (it's a nice feature, but sometimes not having the grip is helpful, so it's kind of a toss up of if I really want seat grips), steeper angle (this was a common problem with other carriers. I would have had to give up the storage under the seat if I wanted a steeper angled one, and I am not willing to give that up), collapsable seat (I only found ONE by bebear that has a collapsable seat, which I LOVE, but it doesn't have a bottle holder or the extra open pouch on the side).
