Looked at both this and the Kelty TC 2.0. Very similar and went with this one due to price at the time. Good storage options and well made. It doesn't come close to fitting me at 6"3" (neither did the Kelty's) but my wife says it is comfortable and she can get most of the weight centered on her hips (she's 5'8"). My 9-month-old at 22 pounds fits nicely and my 2 1/2 year old loved it, although he only got a quick walk around the house and my wife said it worked but he was probably over the limit for what she could handle for any length of time. She definitely thought the 9-month-old would be fine for walking around when a stroller wasn't with and the length of the walk longer then she could carry her for. Said it was an improvement over just carrying her. She also fit in fine, once the pack was adjusted to her particular body which took only took a few minutes initially. Will most likely last well beyond our daughter and go to a relative or be kept to make a good youth pack.
