The creators of the Freeloader consist of two quasi-adventurous, painfully civilized, but mostly feral fathers.

In our day to day reality of attempting to broaden the boundaries of acceptable behavior, we too wanted to push our children's relationship with nature. Our ever present quest to remain perpetually outdoors was stifled time and again by inadequate means of bringing the most important amongst us, our children, along for the ride. Thus, we set out to create a means by which we can pound the pavement, traverse the trails, and discreetly be able to carry the little ones when and if they required. From these confused minds, the Freeloader was born. We trashed the traditional metal frames, the wraps, opting instead for something that looked at least moderately minimalist, trying to avoid that "mobile-home" on your back look that we currently see in the market.
But most importantly, we want our progeny to get out there and use their tiny legs to the best of their ability, to the point which they hit their wall and can go no further. At that point you simply drop the seat and give them a lift.
Compact, lightweight and portable, the innovative, new Freeloader child carrier uses advanced materials and design to create a better experience for parents who love spending time with their kids. Whether you are traveling by air, going to the zoo, or hiking with your little one, the Freeloader child carrier is there ready to help carry the load. It's a child carrier, baby backpack and hiking carrier in one. And it's a perfect fit for moms and dads that want a lighter, more versatile carrier. Best part is when you aren't using it, the Freeloader's integrated aluminum seat folds up neatly to the size of a daypack.
The Freeloader child carrier also features easy-to-use, 5-point safety harness straps designed from the Formula One-style harness. The safety harness straps are specially made to fasten securely and stay safely out-of-reach of children in the carrier.
The Freeloader provides ergonomically designed shoulder and waist straps that distribute the weight to the carrier's hips and torso reducing long-term impact and sudden strain. The contoured shoulder straps are adjustable and provide extra padding for comfort and support. The plush padding in the back panel and seat cushion offer extended comfort for your child.
The Freeloader is small enough to carry-on and stows away easily, making it perfect for air travel, road trips and more.
