    1. Great Pack!!

      We bought this pack for our first child and loved it so much that when baby #2 came we bought another because the first was still in use with the older (kids are 2 & 3 years old). I am 5'2" 115lbs and my husband is 6'2" 175lbs and this pack adjusts well for both of our bodies. It holds a huge amount of gear and is really comfy. Both kids loved the pack and were comfy. on Aug 30th 2016

    2. Great but missing accessories

      We have only had this backpack for our little one (9 months) for 2 months and have been loving it till we got stuck in the rain the past 2 times we've been hiking. I got online thinking for sure there was a rain cover for this backpack. Kelty usually thinks of everything!! But they don't make a rain cover for the kid carriers. I might see if we can find one of the osprey ones that will work on top of it. We do love it otherwise! Our little girl gets her nap time in and loves to ride along! on Aug 3rd 2016

    3. Customer Review

      This child backpack is the real deal! I'm on my second child with it. When my little girl was younger, I'd take her out trout fishing with me along the edges of the salt creeks. She loved it! I use it for festivals and other activities. It's even great to take shopping. The other day I took my toddler boy to my little girl's soccer practice and coached while he was on my back. Everyone was amazed! It was funny, I'd forget he was on my back until I'd hear a little chuckle as I was running down the field! I trimmed the hedges with him on my back Sunday afternoon too. I love it! on Oct 12th 2014
