Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe, comfy and carries like a champ Ali had good head/neck control at about 6 months old, and we were so excited to get rid of the bjorn (the b stands for backache) and upgrade to the KC 1. It's got a bomber harness for your child, and ample side and chin padding - so its nice and cozy. It's on an external frame and carries so well. The child's seat is adjustable - so you can make it longer/lower as your child grows. Both parents can adjust the pack with 1 simple strap (takes less than a minute) so trading off is a snap. The child's weight transfers to your hips, which becomes important as they grow from 15 to 35 lbs. The pack is light-weight with one big storage compartment for your child's necessities; one parent can bring this pack and have everything they need for a half day adventure. It's got a removable sun-shade option - which is a must-have while hiking - but it pulls right out for packing up in the car or bus. We used the pack hiking, fishing, and frequently around the block to induce sleep. Eventually we moved up to a KC3 (more storage for climbing gear) and all our friends were all drooling over the KC1 for a hand-me-down. It's a great pack and will get you outside with your little one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent practical carrier I finally decided to give this carrier a try and have been really happy with it as has my 21 month old. He really enjoys being in it and seems to really like the higher vantage point. I use this both in the city where it is much easier to maneuver than a stroller as well as outdoors. It's adjustable and comfortable, easy to pick up and carry. I also got the sun/rain cover which I think is a must for the little one. I have worn this on four mile hikes while carrying a 25 pounder, plus basic day hike snacks and have not had any issues. Quality and build are good and holding up to regular use. It does require that you are in half decent shape to be able to fully enjoy the purpose of this carrier. I only gave it four stars because these items are expensive, I was able to buy mine during a sale. I'd definitely recommended it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and perfect for little jaunts I picked this up after using a friend's Kelty pack to haul my 5 year old up Cheyenne Mountain. I needed something to fit my smaller frame and this pack works perfectly. Lightweight, easy to adjust and mount with my 18m old in the pack. Storage is enough for diapers, wipes, snacks, and sunscreen. There's nothing fancy - no hip pockets, no seperate water storage - but for the 3-5 mile hikes I usually do with girls it's everything I need.

Does this backpack have the foot straps?

5 minutes into the hike, 11mo. babe is slumped meaning one leg is hanging longer. We've tried so many configurations with the straps and always start with her centered and straps tight. What are we doing wrong?

It is difficult to trouble shoot your child carrier through Q&A. We suggest taking your carrier to a store for an assessment or contacting the manufacturer directly for additional assistance.

What weight/size range can a child be to use this backpack (this information would be really handy in your description or specs of any child carrier). I'm currently looking at Deuter Kid Comfort I Child Carrier. 

Asked by: pegwen
The Kid Comfort I is designed to transport one child weighing no less than 16 lbs. (7 kg) and no more than 40 lb. (18 kg). The total load limit including the child AND cargo is 48.5 lb. (22 kg).
