Worthy replacement for the Baby Bjorn

When our one year-old son got too big for the Bjorn, we started looking for backpack carriers. We have a large dog and do lots of walking on a daily basis, so we wanted something sturdy, light, and not too bulky. We ordered the KangaKid since it looked like the kind of thing we wanted (and because backcountry.com has such an easy return process if we didn't like it). We have not been disappointed. It's pretty easy to load our son into the pack; if only one of us is home, we sit it on the couch, get him secured, and then sit in front of the pack to put it on. Everything adjusts easily so we have been able to trade off between me and my husband without too much trouble. It's not too heavy, our son likes it, and there's a decent amount of room in the pockets if we ever decide to carry more than just him. And for those of you who care about where products are made, you might be interested to know this one is NOT made in China.
