Tricks For The Trail

Hiking season has arrived. Make the most of what you carry.

BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One Outdoors, $259.95

Trails and strollers don't mix. BabyBjörn’s Baby Carrier One Outdoors keeps the littlest member of the clan comfortably included with its ergonomic design, weight-distributing straps, and water and moisture-proof materials. Bonus points for extra pockets.


Bubi Bottle, $16.99

Available in lots of colors, this silicone bottle does it all: use it to carry beverages (it collapses when empty); stash band-aids, small electronics, and other delicate items (it's waterproof); or even fill it with hot or cold water for an instant compress (great for soothing any bumps or boo-boo’s along the way).


Baby Boom XLR8 Connect and Go Backpack, $129.99

Part diaper bag, part backpack, and totally tricked out, the XLR8 helps you all go the distance with its changing pad, 20-plus pockets (including bottle-and-snack-friendly insulated pockets), bluetooth speakers, a thumblight, rechargeable power bank, and other thoughtful features.
