    So big you can almost fit two kids in it ... but don't do that.

    The Kid Comfort III from Deuter is a highly engineered kid carrier that provides superior comfort for you and your child on long day hikes or quick adventures in the city. The adjustable back system and pivoting waist-belt on this kid carrier mean you can really go the distance without ruining your back or losing your balance, while the included teddy bear helps your kid go the distance without getting bored. The III is the biggest and burliest Kid Comfort carrier in Deuter's line; while you can't carry more kid, you can carry more stuff along for the trip.

    The Varifit adjustment system allows you to customize your fit by making individual height adjustments, which is good for both parents. Aircontact system uses an anatomically shaped X-frame for support. The padded hip-belt and aluminum frame provide support and proper weight distribution. Two handles aid in putting the pack on or hauling it in and out of your car. In case you need to set the carrier down (with or without your kid in it), the fold-out aluminum stand is directly attached to the frame to support the carrier on level surfaces. A large lower pouch and small mesh side pocket are ideal for diapers, snacks, and bottle. Make sure you stay hydrated when you are porting your precious kid by utilizing the hydration compartment.

    The only problem with the III is that the passenger might not want to leave the cockpit. The Kid Comfort III keeps your little one protected with its integrated sun roof and rain cover into the high back headrest, which means that your kid stays happy. This carrier has a 5-point harness secures child with cushioned straps and easy-to-use buckle that makes getting the little one in and out easy. The height-adjustable seat permits use with babies and toddlers (babies should be able to hold up head before riding in carrier). You can vary the distance from the frame whether your kid is upright or sleeping with the adjustable shoulder/head pads. The head pad lets your kid sleep soundly and even catches stray drool―there's even a detachable and washable dribble pillow just for that.

    Baby Pack!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Gave as a gift, but here is their review!

    This deuter pack is really great! It's light weight, but very sturdy. It is also pretty comfortable even after carrying it for several hours and it surprisingly holds a lot in the compartment underneath the child's seat. We were able to pack everything we needed for us and baby in one pack which was nice. We also love the sun shade. The other cool feature is that you can load the baby in from the side which is much easier with our wiggly daughter. While it was easy to adjust the pack to fit us, we struggled a bit to get it to fit baby properly. We had to watch several videos for that. Our daughter really liked and even passed out half way through the hike. Overall we felt like this was a great purchase!

    Kid Comfort III Carrier

      This was a gift for some very good friends of ours and they absolutely loved it. They have been talking about hiking more once their little girl gets a little bigger and this was the perfect thing to help them make their trips more comfortable. At first impression, the pack looked huge! but it was perfect size and great padding which made them feel like they weren't carrying any weight. They also mentioned some ventilation so the sweating wasn't unbearable.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This pack is awesome! The weight is balanced just perfectly with you kid and the pack. I wore this pack for over 3 hours and my body wasn't fatigued at all. Plus, my kid was able to take a nap while we were on a hike. We also took it to the zoo and spent couple of hours looking at the animals and my son was so comfortable. I highly recommend this pack to families who love to hike or rather not have a stroller.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This pack overall makes me smile. From the fact that it looks like a well built child carrier that will get you places to its’ overall performance, I am a satisfied mama who has been hitting the trails with her little one. Both my husband and I agree that it is comfortable to carry and offers a lot of storage opions for carrying all sorts of gear. My daughter agrees that it is comfortable enough to “sleep like a baby” in and gives her the freedom to look around at all the awesome sights on our hikes.

      I have completed a more in depth review of this pack including pros and cons on my website:


      Comfortable and Sturdy Child Carrier for

      Enjoying the outdoors w/ little ones.

        I bought this for my sister and this is what she had to say: I have really enjoyed my Deuter kid comfort III carrier. My little boy is 2, and weighs 27 lbs and I was able to take him with me when I went snowshoeing with no problem. He absolutely loved it, he was able to see everything and told me he was cozy. I thought the kickstand was very useful especially when I had to get the backpack on myself. Love all the pockets/storage and the bear was a cute addition. Excited for the weather to warm up to get a lot more use out of it!

        Looks comfy, aye?

        With this Volunteering duty it was a lot of bending down and over pulling out some invasive species. This guy was secure and there was no concern of him toppling over. He was set and looked comfy. Apparently enough to konk out, hard.

        sleeping baby

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        My kid and I love this carrier. He falls asleep in it all the time and it's comfortable enough for me when he's knocked out. He's even fallen asleep while hiking in the rain and snow. I love the attached rain/sun canopy and the attached bladder pouch. Im not sure if the other carriers have the face guard, but it is crucial for the kid to fall asleep comfortably. My kid gets sick of being in the backpack after two hours--I'm hoping to get 4 hours out of him this summer. I've used it multiple times weekly since this fall--on trail on the weekends and around the block to the top of the hill during the week. Not quit "through the wringer" but more than "several times".

        Great carrier, more comfortable when active than our Ergo, for both parties.

        Once your LO has perfected neck control you're good to go. We used from 6 mos with our son. He was too short at first for the pillow to work well so we would cushion with a sweater or rig some other make shift pillow down below his face.

        Came with a plastic mirror that tucks in the hip belt so you can check on your LO without removing the pack.

        Lots of cargo space.

        Hydration pouch can be hard to get a full reservoir in/out of and will put a good bit of pressure on the pouch.

        Carries LO pretty far back so seems to amplify weight just a little bit when compared to equal weight loaded in my normal backpacks but still the best carry option I've tried for hiking/backpacking.

        Bulky to store.

        Easy to adjust to my wife or I.

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Man, this kid carrier is SO comfortable for not only Mommy or Daddy, but for baby too!!! I didn't take it on too long of a hike yet, but we did go snowshoeing with it, and it was amazing. It in the right spot on your back/hips/shoulders to evenly disperse the weight so you don't feel too loaded down or top heavy, it is just the perfect feel.

        It was so comfortable for baby, he fell right asleep... may have been a little awkward looking position, but hey! anything to put him to sleep :)

        Durable and comfortable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This pack is our most used piece of gear since having children. The pack has been through literally hundreds of dayhikes and multiple overnight backpack trips and is still going strong. Our kids love riding (and napping) in it and it is comfortable for us to carry (as far as carrying a backpack loaded with a little person can be).

        That backpack is awesome

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The pack is great. It is very comfortable and rides well with the kid on board. It is very stable on the ground with the kick stand. My son loves riding in it and it is comfortable enough for him to fall asleep in and he usually can't fall asleep any where but his bed. The pack is very adjustable and fits people of all sizes. I highly recommend this pack.

        Yay! Free stuffed animal!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Deuter makes one of the highest quality, feature rich kid carriers on the planet. This pack is stable in rough terrain and has a solid loading system, essential for keeping the goods stable when you make the big move. One of the more impressive features of this pack are the straps and hip belt. Very well padded and adjustable.
