got one last time offered. i love it!!! good padding and high quality stitching. made to last. once you figure out the straps it's easy to use.

strapping the child in is a bit hard but all in all my kid loves it and stays peaceful the entire time in this thing.

Used a very similar model while hiking in the Garden of the Gods awhile back and it worked great. Once you get the fit right, it provides plenty of support and is really comfortable. The stand is handy for loading up or unloading a kid by yourself if there isn't an extra pair of hands around. I'm not in the best shape but I hauled my nephew around in this all day long up and down trails.

My brother loves to hike and bought this same one to take his 2 yr old daughter with him on the trails. He seems to love it a lot. It's comfortable on his back and for my niece as well. The shade overhang thingy is really convenient too.

It will be a cold day in hell before I go tromping around with my toddler in the woods or across country on my back. Maybe a good idea for weight loss?? Hmm... Or back surgery??

I can't comment on the quality of the product. I have worn out 3 backpacks with 2 of my kids. Skip the hiking, think of everything you can do around the house with the child safely on your back and your two hands are free. Think about your child on your back in a store-away from all those pretty things on the shelves. Yes, backpacks are good for outdoor events, but they're invaluable in your ordinary life.

I didn't understand this product at first. I thought it was a hiking pack to let my 40" 3-year-old carry up to 50 pounds.

For the record I do have a child carrier pack, it just doesn't look much like this -- we got the cheapest thing we could find at REI. I carried aforementioned child up Mt. Washington in it around his second birthday. This pack looks much better because it has more wind/rain protection. Something that would have come in handy that day.

I think it will depend on how you are shaped, not so much your weight. My husband is 5'11 270 size 42 pants and pretty much all stomach and 52 inch shoulders, and he was able to wear one that is very similar to this one (the straps look the same to me) comfortably. The waist strap was long enough under his stomach and the shoulder straps adjusted to fit his chest.

However, on me it did not work so well. I was 5'8, 225 all hips and butt and the frame pushed against my butt making it raise up and the shoulder straps not fit right. I tried everything and it just didn't work. I ended up using a Mai Tai soft back carrier and it worked great. These things are, I believe, designed for men.

Hey woot, When I scroll down to the kids.woot community, it says discuss this wootcast next to the kidfoot video. It's a broken link that takes me to the forum.

I've got tall kids. They wouldn't fit in this now, and probably wouldn't have much past 18 months of age or so.

The link to the product manual does not work.

Personally, if my kid is 40" tall (and he is) then they are walking themselves!

Oh, my kid rides in it. I was hoping it turned them into pack mules.

My cousins and I were discussing these packs, and the conclusion was that there's an incredibly narrow window when your kid will ride in it. Too young and they get bounced around and be miserable. Too old and they'll want to walk instead of ride.

I've heard of children that will sit in this and enjoy the ride, but I haven't met any.

I have something similar and my daughter loves it! She currently hates her stroller, but will sit in this for hours. She's high up and can see everything. We used this during a visit to DC and it was perfect for all the walking that we had to do. This is a fantastic deal too!

What!? So the photo guy couldn't find some random kid to put in the carrier to take a picture of?

Here's their website with links to the instructions and sales pamphlet.

I just wish I could find how big the waist strap gets. My husband has a 44" waist. He can wear our Ergo, but not a lot of the sporty stuff is made for XXXL people.

My wife and I have a different brand of backpack similar to this and we love it. We've used it with all three of our kids and found it useful for any situation where you feel like you might want to use a stroller. None of our kids would stay in a stroller for more than 15 minutes and we would inevitably find ourselves holding a kid and pushing an empty stroller. The pack works well to store all your diaper bag supplies and the high-up view keeps the kid entertained and very happy. Add in the fact that you have both arms free and you get a must-have product for parents of very young children.

I bought one the last time the deal was up. We have used it once, and like it but don't love it. We carried our 32lb 3 year old on a 4 mile round trip moderate hike. It was hard to get the fit right. Also when we were putting it on one of the handles came off, but it was just the stitching so I'm able to fix it. If I didn't know better I would probably LOVE it, but we have another backpack that is AWESOME it is a VAUDE which is about 3 times the price of this. I love that it has the sun canopy built in so all you have to do is unzip and pull it out. For the price it isn't a bad choice.

L-L-Love the carrier!!! Far superior than Kelty. Have had a couple Kelty carrier and got this last time Woot had it and I'm SO glad we did. Even my husband who despises all carriers will wear this carrier and wear it for a long time. High quality, well made and thought out carrier. Crazy deal at this price.
