It’s also compatible with our optional child carrier accessories: the Sombrero sunshade, Rainbow rain cover and neck pillow. Please note, this child carrier has a 20 kg maximum weight limit.

  • Care
    You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush.
    Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap and Nikwax® Tech Wash®
    Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
    Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty
    Always try to keep the zip teeth clean — wash with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics
    Do not tumble dry, iron or dryclean

Does the possum dismantle for travel?
Amanda B on Jan 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so but it folds down quite flat and would fit in a large suitcase or flat carrycase. We bought a small generic flat pram for ours for plane travel so it's always handy.
What's the difference between the possum and vamoose?
Jye H on Sep 25, 2020

Main differences are:
The Vamoose comes in two harness sizes.
The Vamoose has a detachable day pack and the Vamoose comes with a large zip pocket at the base for more storage.

Hello. Does it come with any attachable shade or rain covers?
Grant t on Aug 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Not included but can be purchased separately.
On the sizing guide is the s2 the same as the w2? It says the only size available is s2?
Lynne v on Jul 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Lynn,

The difference between the 'S2 and 'W2' is the womens (W2) packs are designed with features such as smaller buckles and narrower straps which helps distribute the weight more evenly and make the pack easier for woman to carry.

The Possum child carrier is only available in 'S2'

Thanks, The Macpac Team!
What is the size of the storage compartment? Is it 19L with the extra zipoff backpack or or is it 19L including the zipoff backpack?
Oliver K on May 30, 2020

Thank you for your enquiry.

The Possum Child Carrier does not have a detachable daypack however the Vamoose does have one which has a 9L capacity, which is included in the overall capacity of 19L.

Thanks - the Macpac Team
What is the minimum age of the child the pack can carry? My son is 5 months old.
Emma N on May 27, 2020

We recommend that the child should be able to sit up and hold his or her head up unsupported, before using a child carrier of this type.


The Macpac Team.
Does this come in the S3 size?
Bridie P on Apr 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, we do have other option for size S3 which is called vamoose.

Thanks the Macpac Team
