I use this cover with the Deuter Kid Comfort III.

If there's any chance you'll be out in the rain, get this rain cover. The rain cover fits over the sun shade and goes down to the very bottom of the carrier and can be used with the stand in or out. I have no trouble using the cover with the stand out.

The instructions don't say where to attach the cover clips, but it you look closely on the Kid Comfort, you'll see some fabric loops on the waist belt and some loops just above the headrest for the top of the rain cover. Don't be afraid to stretch the cover the first time or 2 you put it on. At first it is a snug fit, but that's what keeps the wind and rain out so well.

I haven't had a problem with wet feet. My daughter is only 10 months old, so her feet don't dangle below the carrier, so maybe that's why she isn't getting wet feet.

I also don't need assistance to get the cover on. However, you cannot fully put the cover on before putting the child in the carrier. When I put the rain cover on by myself, I take the Kid Comfort off, set it on the ground with the stand out, and put the rain cover on. I have no problem doing so in about 20 seconds.

The Kid Comfort III is quite comfortable with my 10 month old daughter (just over 20 lbs). We're usually going on hour long walks and my back, shoulders, and neck are never sore.

There are a ton of different adjustments for the adult's comfort, so it may take you a little while to figure out just how you like to wear it, but once you do, the fit will be great. And it's fairly easy to switch the adjustments for multiple wearers.

The child seat and harness is very secure and my daughter seems to think it's comfortable. The built in sun shade works well, though I'd recommend that if there's any chance you'll be out in the rain, that you get the rain cover. The rain cover fits over the sun shade and goes down to the very bottom of the carrier and can be used with the stand in or out (the instructions don't say where to attach the bottom clips, but it you look closely on the Kid Comfort, you'll see some fabric loops on the waist belt for the rain cover.)

The only negative I've found with this carrier is that it really is not intended for small babies. At 10 months, 20+ lbs, and a little under 30 inches, my daughter's still a little too short. The harness fits securely around her, it just looks a little uncomfortable. Someone else suggested putting a sweater on the seat, under the baby. That could definitely help, as the only fit issue is not being able to get my daughter up high enough in the seat. All that being said, even when she was only 23 inches, I still felt that the harness was secure, it was just uncomfortable for her. As a side note, I "borrowed" one of our friends' 2 year old. She fit fine, seemed to like the ride, had plenty of room to grow in the carrier, and wasn't a strain to carry.
