I recommend it to friends and strangers!
I am completely satisfied with this product. I chose it because I have a Deuter pack and find it very comfortable. This carrier is the same. The vari-quick adjustable torso is super easy--my husband and I switch back and forth in no time. The quality is superior--very durable. We have traveled all over North America and Europe, on and off trains, planes, boats, buses, mountains, valleys, etc. with our daughter in this pack and we all love it! I am a fairly small woman (5'4", 120lbs) and find it very manageable; I can take it on and off without assistance if I need too. She can fall asleep in it. The wide seat is very comfortable for her. She always wants to get in. We started using it around 5-6 months, now she is 19 months and I foresee many more months of use. Good sized carrying compartments and multiple pockets. Easy to fold up. Not too heavy on its own. Comes with a cute little bear--Deuter always has attention to detail! We purchased a water bladder that fits with it, as well as the sun/rain cover and I'm very pleased we did, although the pack is great on its own. It's not the cheapest carrier out there, but it's worth every penny! I have seriously recommended this pack to complete strangers, moreover friends :)
Good heavy-duty child carrier
Upgraded to the Kid Comfort II from another style of child-carrier that wasn't as durable or comfortable (for the wearer or child). We chose this carrier due to the suspension system, comfort features for the child, and reputation of Deuter quality - and all three have held up over the past year of frequent travel throughout Asia. The KCII fits like a quality backpack, and adjusts well to my 6'3" frame. The positioning of the child in the carrier is well balanced, with good support for the rider (useful for long spells in the carrier). The rest pad allows the rider to sleep in the carrier, which is another plus. Storage in the carrier is equivalent to a daypack: we can easily fit diaper items, clothes changes, sun lotions and insect repellents, an assortment of toys, and rain gear in the storage compartment. The Deuter 3-liter water bladder fits perfectly, is easy to refill from the pack with bottled water, and provides a (mostly) hands-free drinking option for both carrier and carried (our son loves it). Recommend getting the optional sunshade, although we have not found a need for the rain cover yet. However, it is possible to overload, as the storage space and a growing child can combine to create a heavy load. Also, the support leg constantly needs to be adjusted or sticks out behind the pack. Even when stowed, the carrier sticks out behind the wearer, making moving in tight spaces awkward. But for child carrying, the KCII is outstanding.
It is an excellent child carrier. We are very happy with it. It is light and has good carring capacity.It has a great design . It is comfortable to use.
