Excellent Backpack!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very light! The most comfortable kid carrier pack I have owned, we also own a larger Kelty but the compact size makes this a one the winner. The compact size is great for town and in the house as well as the trail! Love it!

Love this carrier

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love this carrier. We have been using it since my daughter was 6 months old and she is now 2! She loves going on hikes in it. My favorite feature is that it is fully adjustable to fit me or my wife comfortably and it is super simple. A great all around pack. Lots of storage and the sun shade is great.

Kelty Transit 3.0 Kid Carrier

    This is the most compact kid carrier I could find and has served well hiking and skiing with a child in tow.

    The torso length adjustment is easy to use and works for both my wife and I (5'2" / 6'1")

    Unanswered Question

    What are some options for an 8mth old? I would like to get one of these types of carriers w/ rain/sun shield but also would like it to last through out the years. Any suggestions?

    Hi, I just got my carrier and am happy to...

    Hi, I just got my carrier and am happy to say my baby likes it! This is the first carrier he hasn't cried in. But here's the problem: it kills my upper back! I'm 5'4" so I have the lumbar set pretty high. It feels like none of the weight is on my hips though, which I would expect from any sort of backpack, as it's the most safe for your back. All the weight is pulling on my shoulders and upper back. Any recommendations on how to adjust it to make it more comfortable?

    Dominica - it sounds like you might have the torso adjustment set to short so instead of hte weight going to your hips it is on your shoulders. Try dropping it to the next adjustment setting down and let us know if that helps.
