I heavily researched kid carriers through my whole pregnancy. I compared the Tough Traveler to the Kelty and in every aspect the Tough Traveler won. I have carried my daughter in the pack for a year now (she weighs 25 lbs), and have always been comfortable in this pack. The only problem I have found is with the amount of packable space. It's great for day trips, but if you want to go on weekend trips, there isn't a whole lot of room for extra stuff.
I have been able to pack plenty of diapers, food, snacks, and even extra clothing, so don't let this keep you from checking this one out. Remember, it's good to support small, local (american made) business.
