User Review: Kelty Trek
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $170
After thirteen years and five kids we passed it to friends in 80-90% condition.
- Kids love it and sleep in it while carried
- Attached diaper bag is perfect
- Holds kids securely
- Pant legs creep up
I carried all five of my clones in a Kelty kid carrier. It came with a rain cover which I may have used a total of two times (Eastern WA). I carried them on day hikes, pheasant hunting (makes shooting harder but doable), and all over the state over a thirteen year period.
It is rated and will fit kids up to 45# but I usually kick them out and make them walk by age 3-4. I just passed it on to a buddy and it is still 80-95%. I tripped a$$ over teakettle once and my daughter was still secure in back, unfazed.
I loved the kick stand for taking breaks. I saw the stirrups for sale but declined them. I did get the bag attachment that fits below the seat; it made a great diaper bag and came with a changing pad.
My only issue with it was that their pant legs liked to crawl up and then they got cold, so my wife would pull them down occasionally. The kids loved the thing and often slept on my back while I walked.
If you can find one of these, buy it.
It fit me and my wife with a simple adjustment (I am 5-10 my wife is 5-5).
