Holiday Gift Guide

Posted by The Piggyback Rider Team on

Talk about a gift that keeps on giving! The Piggyback Rider is perfect for those families in your life that love to explore and travel. We’ve put together a complete PBR gift giving guide for the holiday season.

The Original Piggyback Rider

Let’s start with the basics:

The Explorer Pack - $129.99 (original price: $199.99)

This Piggyback Rider Explorer pack comes with a hydration pack for both you and your child, storage, and safety harness. This option comes in 2 colors (orange or black). This is the best PBR for those longer journeys that require hydration and extra storage.

The Scout Pack - $89.99 (original price: $154.99)

This is our base model, and includes the safety harness. This option comes in 2 colors (orange and black). This is great for small hikes, and great for relaxed family outings.

If your gift recipient already has a Piggyback Rider, consider adding accessories. These enhance the use of the Piggyback Rider, and add more enjoyment to every new adventure. You can find more information on these accessories on our website.

Selfie Stick Holder - $5.99

The selfie stick is one of our favorite accessories, so it was a no brainer when deciding to create a special holder that connects right to the PBR, so it’s always on hand for those candid moments.

Hip Belt - $39.99

Get comfortable with the hip belt. Add this accessory to add more comfort around the hips. We took a military hip belt and modified it for our use by adding extra padding and sturdiness to the design.

Side Pocket - $14.99

Keep your essentials right where you need them. The side pocket attaches right to the PBR and it’s great for snacks, cell phones, and keys.

Water Bottle Holder - $6.99

Go completely hands free! Keep your water bottle in arms reach with this accessory. This Water Bottle Holder holds any standard plastic water bottle at the neck.

Child Safety Harness Pack - $39.99

Keeping your kids hydrated on the trail just got easier! This pack doubles as a safety harness, as well as a hydration pack for those that have the SCOUT model.

Carry Bag - $16.99

This bag can hold all of these accessories in a bag the size of a back pack. This is great for storing accessories when they’re not in use.

Mud Flap - $13.99

Your child’s shoes rest right by your lower back which means what’s on their shoes is going to end up on you! Keep your clothes free of dirt with the attachable mud flap.

The Piggyback Rider, and all the accessories, are the perfect gifts for the holidays. Gets yours today, to gift or to keep! From the entire PBR team, we hope you have a very happy holiday!
