    I've had this backpack for almost a year now and have used it for hiking, cutting firewood and doing chores around the house. I'm a petite gal and it fits just right around the hips, back and shoulders. My husband is 6'4 and the hip belt adjustment is really easy to slide to fit him. We both plan on using it this winter for cross country skiing. Our little gal who is 11 months now just loves it!



    We went to Jamaica for 10 days without a stroller and without a diaper bag thanks to this carrier. The extra pockets held 8 diapers, wipes, 4 bottles, formula, food for the day, books and toys for the airplane, my cell, and the baby. It was my carry on, which stored perfectly overhead. The carrier is not for someone who is out of shape. It sits just like a hiking backpack, so if you are not accustom to a backpack, this may not be the best option for you. For me, it could not have been better! Thanks Kelty.



    Overall I'm quite pleased with this carrier. My husband wears it mostly, but he doesn't mind it, so it must be pretty comfortable. Our little one loves being in it and gets so excited when he sees it. The pack has adequate storage space and pockets for different items. The only flaw is that the sun cover is poorly designed. It's not tall enough and somewhat confining. Our son doesn't like having it attached at all, so we tend to use other sun prevention measures. For the price and the competing products on the market, I think this carrier is a good choice.
