Journey Perfectfit Signature 26L Backpack

The best way to promote your child fostering a relationship with the great outdoors is by exposing them at an early age, and that is why Kelty designed the Journey Perfectfit Signature Backpack for growing families. This pack is thoughtfully made for both the parents and the child to enjoy a pleasant experience on the trail.

Intuitively designed for both parents to share the load, Kelty incorporated their PerfectFIT Suspension System for easy-to-use adjustment between varying torso sizes, and multiple adjustment points on the padded shoulder straps and hip belt to help you find a comfortable fit. And for a growing child's comfort, the packs seat is extra wide with adjustable foot stirrups for naturally-positioned posture. Two large zippered pockets are made with internal organization pouches for diapers, sunscreen, and toys, two generously-sized zippered pockets on each side of the hip belt store quick-access item for snacks and a cellphone, and a conveniently integrated sunshade is built into its own pocket so you never leave the house without it. For easy transitioning at the trailhead and the destination, multiple grab handles are located around the pack for a smooth on and off experience.

Very comfortable for me + my son

After two good hikes with fairly steep climbs/descents, I can say I am very happy with the comfort level of this backpack. My son nods off for naps in it too, and loves the view. The sunshade is so easy to use and the storage space inside the zippered pockets is great. The waist band pockets have plenty of space, which I appreciate as well. I am a petite woman and the fit was easy to achieve. The only downside is that there are no water bottle sleeves on this pack. I had hoped for an external pocket perhaps, but there isn't an internal one either, so a bottle just has to sit loose in the pockets. Very happy though with this and with how happy my son is in it while hiking.
