The clock starts the moment you decide to insert your beloved offspring into the five-point-security-harness-worthy-of-a-NASCAR-driver-or-F16-pilot. And it ends when the pack is mounted on your back and you’re headed down the trail. In between? Avoiding a parental panic attack while you insert a wiggling kid’s leg into a harness loop, much like fitting a football into a coffee cup, and adjust the harness, like putting a pair of suspenders on an octopus. Enter the Deuter Kid Comfort child carrying backpack, which defuses the 10-second toddler time bomb with a simple, brilliant touch….
The Deuter Kid Comfort opens (gasp!) wide from the side, like the sliding door of a minivan, allowing kids to step into the pack and virtually buckle themselves.
The pack also comes with 3D air mesh shoulder straps and anatomically shaped fins that substantially increase the comfort of the parent; a Vari-Quick adjustable torso system for quick changes from mom-sherpa to dad-sherpa; a detachable-washable child pillow; a zippered diaper compartment; a rear-view mirror stored in the hip pocket so you can confirm nap time; and, of course, a Deuter teddy bear.
What we like: The concave and comfortable pivoting Vari Flex hip fins, which deliver uber-comfort when carrying a heavy load. The sit perfectly and distribute the weight evenly to the hips. And all this saves energy, which you’ll need again as soon as your kid steps back out of the pack.
