Kelty K.I.D.S. Gear
April 4, 2007From playground to campground, Kelty has kids covered
with safe, sound and special gear
BOULDER, COLORADO (For Immediate Release) – Whether it’s an expedition to the local playground or a remote backcountry campsite, the collection of outdoor products from Kelty K.I.D.S. ensures that the young ones – and their parents – get the most out of their time outside.
“At Kelty, we consistently hear that some of the most valuable family time happens in the outdoors,” said Kenny Ballard, president of Kelty. “By designing family gear that’s comfortable, durable, safe, and easy to use, we make it easier for families to have true quality time.”
The ultimate in multi-use family gear, Kelty’s new Transit Carriers are soft-sided backpacks built around light and strong internal frames capable of carrying a small child or infant. As a child carrier, these low-profile packs provide comfort for both parent and child. When not in use, these packs easily convert to a stylish daypack for all-day carrying or quick storage in an overhead bin.
The new carriers include the TC 1.0, TC 2.0 and TC 2.5. All three feature a padded “cockpit” seat with a secure harness for the child, and a fully padded and contoured suspension to ensure comfortable carrying for the parent. The TC 1.0 can carry kids up to 30 pounds, while the TC 2.0 and 2.5 are designed to hold up to 40 pounds.
For added support on the trail and around town, Kelty’s external frame child carriers are available in five progressive sizes. Ranging from the adjustable suspension and full support of the Adventure ($240), Pathfinder ($190), and Journey ($160) to the urban friendly and lightweight Wanderer ($140) and Tour ($100), Kelty delivers the versatility that parents and kids deserve.
When the day calls for pushing rather than carrying, Kelty’s award-winning Speedster jogging strollers are streamlined, secure, and safe. The three-stroller collection includes the Speedster ($260), the Speedster Deluxe ($335) and the Speedster Deuce ($410). In all Kelty strollers, a five-point harness comfortably and safely cradles your precious cargo, while a rain and sun visor keeps them happy in all weather.
