The Sherpani Rumba Superlight Child Backpack Carrier is a lightweight alternative to the award-winning Rumba Backpack Carrier. As the name implies, the Sherpani Rumba Superlight backpack carrier is considerably lighter than other child carriers on the market, weighing in at just 67 oz. minimum weight. Great for around the city day trips. It differs in having slightly less volume for storage and comes in one frame size. It is designed to comfortably fit both men and women with torsos ranging from 17″-20”.
The Sherpani Rumba Superlight also features our exclusive five point chest plate that prevents slouching and holds your child upright comfortably and securely with padded foam and five security straps. This child carrier includes a sunshade and rain cover (same color as the pack), and foot stirrups to increase your child’s circulation and comfort.

Findings: At first glance this backpack doesn’t look all that appealing. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of many of the other framepacks… because it is practical and lightweight. We are avid backpackers and take our 18 month-old everywhere with us. Though this pack is streamlined, it actually has a lot of storage space. One feature we really like about this pack is that it comes with a great sunshade and kid tested and approved rain fly. It is breathable and super comfy for mom and dad. This is a fantastic pack for overnight trips. For shorter day trips I, the mama bear, stick to the ERGO, while my husband always chooses this pack (it is more manly to him).
