Comments about VAUDE Wallaby Child Carrier - 2012 Closeout:
I will start this review by saying that I own (and love) a Deuter Kid Comfort III. I have put in literally hundreds of miles with my now 3-year-old son with the Deuter backpack. I purchased this Vaude backpack for my wife to use with our younger daughter (7 months old) to come along with us sometimes. The manufacturer's goal with this backpack model was clearly to make it as lightweight as possible, without too severely compromising function. With that in mind, this is not going to be the most feature packed backpack around, but it does exactly what it sets out to do - carries the child with reasonable comfort with the least weight/bulk possible. This was perfect for my wife, who didn't want to carry too bulky of a pack for long distances (hence why we didn't just buy a second Deuter). The harnessing system for the child is a bit different, but it gets the job done. My average sized 7 month old daughter fits perfectly at pretty much the tightest/smallest settings, so any smaller child would be too small for this backpack. I would expect this backpack to fit our daugher for two seasons. One nice feature of this backpack that I haven't seen on other packs is the small pulltab located on the bottom of the pack to retract the kickstand. Overall, while there may be better options out there in the child carrier marketplace for many people (I love love love love my Deuter Kid Comfort III, the cadillac of child carriers, which I cannot recommend enough), this product fills a particular niche - a niche that met our needs perfectly, and fills it admirably and at a great price.
