I did a good amount of research before choosing the Sherpani Rumba. I am looking to get the family out for some good day hikes as soon as the weather is warm. But have had a few opportunities to use the pack already.
On the short neighborhood walks with the dogs the pack has been very comfortable to use. The many adjustments have allowed for me to quickly fit the pack to my body and carry my daughter with ease.
I did use the pack to run some errands the only problem is that the pack is quite large and I found myself running into things behind me. My daughter did like having a grand viewing locations on my back in the store.
For downsides, even though I don't plan on hiking in the rain, I can't figure out how to use the rain shields, there does not seem to be a good way to attach them. The sun cover seems to be a little high and does not quite shade my passenger. And this is simply an aesthetic complaint but did Sherpani have to put daisies on the pack and change the colors of "she"rpani in the logo?
I plan on trying this pack in the airport soon. I figured that carrying may daughter and all of her accessories (diapers, bottles, toys, change of clothes etc.) this way through he airport would be the most convenient. The idea of pushing a stroller around in an airport does not appeal to me.
I am very happy with the pack and look forward to carrying my daughter around with my wife and dogs for some great summer adventures.
