Child-Carrying Rental Backpacks - Not Just for Trails!


If you were at the Portsmouth Holiday Parade this past Saturday evening you might recognize these two good-lookin' fellas!  Little Ben is Ciao's newest customer, and he's also one of downtown Portsmouth's favorite toddlers. We're super proud to have had the opportunity to hook him up with one of our cozy Kelty Kids child-carrying backpacks so he could get a better view of the beautiful floats, the Portsmouth High School marching band, and of course, SANTA! It was one of the best holiday parades I've seen in Portsmouth in a long time!  Based on Ben's and his dad, Tom's, smiles, you'd never know it was absolutely FREEZING out!  :)

A note from Ben's mom, Emily:

[The backpack] was perfect!  Thank you so much. 
He fought going in it, but as soon as Tom was walking he loved it. We could still talk to him and he could see everything. Almost felt sorry for the kids in strollers. 

We agree--child-carrying backpacks are definitely not just for hiking.  They're PERFECT for parades!

On Why Not To Check More Luggage Than Completely Necessary When Flying To Maine

I love travel. I get excited about going just about ANYWHERE, and have been blessed to be able to cover great distances in some pretty wild trips involving trains, kayaks, bush taxis, steamships, buses, jeeps and barely air-worthy planes. I've scrawled through dozens of travel-related journals, and I am a huge sucker for the romance [...]
