Product Description: The Deuter Kid Comfort II child carrier is a 6-lb, 1-oz backpack with a five point harness, waist strap, aluminum frame, foldout stand and storage. Can be used for kids up to 48.5 lbs. Optional add-ons include sun/rain cover (USD$39) and camel back (around USD$33).
Note: We have been using this pack for travel and casual walks/hikes only.
- Great for travel, can check free as you would a stroller (with United anyway).
- One adult can easily load and lift child onto back.
- Keeps kids up and away from stray dogs, and avoids strollers on uneven or nonexistent sidewalks.
- Fairly lightweight.
- Lots of storage for diapers, snacks, etc.
- Waist strap takes the burden off your shoulders.
- Removable chin pad is washable.
- Our son, Bronson, loves the elevated perspective.
- The price, considering the pack is $239 it seems like the rain/sun cover should be included.
- Somewhat to stiff to begin with, straps definitely need to be broken in.
- Somewhat bulky.
- No dedicated storage space for the sun/rain cover.
- Sun/rain cover doesn’t offer protection for legs.
Recommendation: Yes, we would recommend this product to a friend, but would recommend trying to find a used one first to keep the cost down.
