4 Reasons You'll Love the Piggyback Rider This Winter

Posted by The Piggyback Rider Team on

Winter is quickly approaching, but that doesn’t mean your outdoor plans have to slow down. When you’re headed out on your next hike or taking part in your favorite holiday activities, the Piggyback Rider has your back (literally). Don’t forget to grab it on your way out the door and follow our tips to use it all through the winter!

Kids Stay Warm

There’s nothing worse than little cold hands, especially the tears that come with it. Not only will the Piggyback Rider keep you and your little one warm through body heat, but all of their winter essentials are also right at arms reach. We offer accessories that fit perfect on whatever model you have so you can store all the hats and gloves you need to make sure every outing stays warm and cozy.

Stay Safe on All Terrains

As a parent, it’s hard not to worry about your child being on rough terrain, especially if they are just beginners when it comes to hiking. If there is snow or ice on the ground, it can be even more stressful. The Piggyback Rider adds security and peace of mind for parents because it puts them in control of the path taken. When the terrain starts to get rough, strap on the Piggyback Rider and ensure your child’s safety. Once you’re back to flat, or ice-free land, they can hop off and enjoy the activity themselves.

Fits Over Layers

Other child carriers keep you limited to how many layers you can put on during the winter because they’re bulky or restrictive. This means they can’t be used during the dead of winter when you need to layer on those early morning treks. Thankfully, the Piggyback Rider is lightweight and versatile so it can be worn over layers, and easily taken off when it’s time to take a few off. Even if you and your child are both wearing heavy jackets, you can still wear the carrier comfortably without confinement.

Holidays Made Easy

From parades to viewing the neighborhood Christmas lights, make sure the upcoming holiday season is stress-free with the Piggyback Rider! Big crowds are enough to put anyone on edge, and no matter the size of the event. If you plan to attend Black Friday shopping or a Thanksgiving parade in your hometown, keep your kids close, right behind you to be exact! Let us help you keep your whole family together this holiday season.

Don’t avoid the outdoors this winter because of restricting child carriers or icy trails. We help your family stay active all year long, even when the temps cool down. Grab yours on your way out or visit us online to shop now
