The panel can be adjusted vertically and horizontally, decreasing in size to accommodate children and create the perfect fit for each individual child.  Padded, contoured shoulder straps and a structured waistband ensure adequate support for the wearer, even with larger children.  The pieced body panel opens up customization options and creates a natural seat. This pattern includes a removable, snap-in headrest and sleeping hood that function in both the smallest and largest settings.
