It’s never too early to extol the wonders of nature to your children, and the best way to do that is to get them right out in it. Outdoor gear manufacturers are paying close attention to the needs of parents with young children, producing some pretty high-tech options that will take the strain out of shuttling your kids in the outdoors. Here are a couple of quality child carriers from SunnySports that can help you keep your growing family comfortable and safe out on the trail.
Taking your baby camping, hiking, or just on trips around town will never be more comfortable for both parties than with the K.I.D.S. Transit carrier from Kelty, the latest in their line of child carriers. Loaded with features that attend specifically to baby’s needs, this carrier includes a changing pad, loops to keep toys attached, a sun hood, a 5-point attachment harness, and an adjustable-height seat to accommodate your growing child. Advantages for grownups include an adjustable-height waist belt, thick padding on all straps, pockets of various sizes for personal storage and water bottles, and a stabilizing foot bar for safe loading and unloading of your child in the carrier. For safety and comfort value, the K.I.D.S. Transit has a lot going for it, and with a 40 lb capacity, you’ll get plenty of use as your baby grows. Available in 4 colors.
The Kid Comfort III child carrier from Deuter kicks it up a notch with their ultra-comfortable anatomical design, using a pull-forward hip belt that ensures it’s resting squarely on your hips for better back support during longer treks. This child carrier is teeming with features for the kid, including a side entry so the child can step in instead of having to be placed in, an adjustable-height padded seat, a soft, padded chin pillow and high padded headrest with integrated sun shade, 5-point harness, and even a microfiber teddy to sweeten the deal for Junior. Parents will enjoy plenty of storage capacity, including a compartment for a hydration system, and the unique swivel motion of the adjustable-height hip belt that provides optimum weight distribution regardless of the adult’s size or the weight of the load — an important feature when you consider the Kid Comfort III carries a maximum capacity of 48.5 lbs!
