Product Description

The Kelty Pathfinder is Kelty's best selling backpack child carrier. The Pathfinder is the Kelty's midrange framed back child carrier, falling directly between the Adventure and Journey in terms of price and features. Although it is not as expensive as the Kelty Adventure, the Pathfinder is still rich in comfort and conveniences. It features a top-notch harness system with curved and molded shoulder straps, and adjustable sternum strap, and a triple-padded waist belt.

For the passenger, the Kelty Pathfinder comes with a removable sun and rain hood, a removable daypack, and a washable burp-cloth for when the little one gets upset along the way. The 5-point harness is well padded, the cockpit size is adjustable and has the option of a slight recline; in addition, the leg holes lined with a soft fleece for comfort. The whole pack has an auto-deploy kickstand that allows you to remove the pack and set it down without having to remove the passenger.

Good but....
not perfect. While this is the best I have tried so far it still needs a bigger pack. The sun hood works better than expected and it managed the weight(55lbs child and gear) beautifully. I was able to strap a day pack to the back and carry coats, lunch, water, toys and of course diapers without much effort. I would have preferred that the extra weight was closer to center.
