Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Size: One size
Number of Pockets: 2
Max. Load Carried: 28 pounds
Height of Owner: 5'9"
Price Paid: $60

I purchased this pack after my daughter refused to ride in any of the lesser brands of front packs. The first time I put her in it and walked around town she fell asleep. It can be a bit of a hassle to get on but it is extremely comfortable for long walks. This product definatly lives up to the Kelty standard. I highly recommend this product until your little one can ride in a regular back pack carrier.
