  1. Excellent child carrier

    This backpack child carrier is very light and comfortable. We tried on the Osprey Pogo AG or something like that and we liked the way it sat on the hips better, but the difference is pretty minimal. Kelty pack has better pocket placement and the system for securing the child is better than the Osprey and Deuter equivalent. The only big thing I don't like is the water bladder pocket for the Kelty seems to be designed for a be inserted on its side, which is not optimal. I may be wrong about this, but the directions do not address it at all so there's no way to know for sure. We could not find a rain fly specific to the pack, unlike the Osprey which has one you can purchase. on Aug 7th 2018

  2. Awesome

    Has everything I need with some unique features like the waterproof pocket for wet/muddy items. Easy to adjust fit between me and my wife. on Jun 21st 2018

  3. Amazing carrier

    Very functional well built carrier with style. Very supportive for me and the baby. We love it and are able to go on a lot of adventures together. The sun shade is amazing and offers great protection even helps with the rain! on May 28th 2018

  4. Sturdy, functional, and comfortable

    We are so excited to have the new journey perfectfit elite! The pack fits great and our little guy loves the ride! The straps are very strong. The entire pack is very well made and seems very durable! Can’t wait to have many more adventures in our new pack. on May 3rd 2018
