This is super easy to get our child in and out. The sun visor is also easy to quickly pull out and put in place. Works great for both my 6'2" husband myself at 5'2". Even with the least amount of storage of the osprey child carriers, still fits lunch, jacket & diaper essentials. It's heavy, but you don't notice once you're on the trail. The only thing I would change is a slightly larger waist zipper compartment to more easily fit a phone.
