User Review: Kelty Trek
Max. Load Carried: 25lbs
Height of Owner: 5'5
Price Paid: $230, with hood $260 CDN + tax
My son loves it. He will not go in his stroller now because he loves the comfort and being up high in the pack, and being eye level with Mom and Dad. I notice that less expensive packs do not allow for the secure fit when a child sleeps and children hang right over the side.
Negatives: The little backpack that attaches is great for my wallet and keys and I use it as a purse when I am not carying the Trek, but it is not large enough for a lot of gear that is needed ie: a change pad and diapers and etc.....I think I am going to have to purchase an additional Kelty KIDS bag to attach to the Trek - more $.
Also I love the hood but I find that you have to take it right off to remove you child - it would be nice if it folded down - kinda like a convertible, but it doesn't so it's a bit of a pain.
In conclusion, the positives far outweigh the negatives - good product Kelty!
