Kid Comfort 3 Product Features
Kid Comfort child carriers are all JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association) certified. JPMA is a voluntary certification of excellence that goes above and beyond the required ASTM testing and offers the most stringent child safety standards in America. Testing includes flammability, hazardous materials, labelling, physical and mechanical durability/functionality, and impact testing. All Deuter Kid Comfort child carriers are tested and suitable for children who can sit upright and maintain head control by themselves with a maximum load capacity of 48 pounds.
A 5 point safety harness is designed with a child’s proportions in mind. Simple adjustability and color-coded buckles make it easy to handle and a cozy seating area provides a safe comfortable atmosphere for the child. The height of the seat is easily adjust able even when occupied and promotes a healthy ergonomic seating position: the width of the seat varies in relation to the adjusted height and in combination with the stirrups creates the perfect i ndividual position.
The Aircontact Pro backsystem with VariFlex creates a flexible carrying system with pivoting hip fins to follow complex body movements and two ergonomically formed V-shape aluminum stays transfer up to 70% of the load to the hips. Pull forward hip belt and shoulder stabilization creates precision load control and specialized layers of hollow chamber foam technology ventilate by pumping warmth and moisture away from the body with every move. A VariFit-slide adjustment system provides a quick and perfect fit for both mom and dad.

We decided to buy this one after researching reviews of the Kelty Pathfinder 3.0 and the Deuter Kid Comfort 3. This is SO extremely comfortable. The hips in this versus the Osprey Poco Premium are night and day. I also feel like this one is safer for my little girl. This one has a 5 point harness, much like a carseat. So instead of straps only going over the shoulder, they go over both legs as well. So if you need to bend down to pick something up, your child feels much more secure. The back the the child's back rests on comes up much higher, also providing more neck support.
I really like the pillow drool pad feature on this one. The osprey one was more so just material that could be removed and spot cleaned. But on the Deuter its an actual comfy pillow, so its a lot easier for a child to fall asleep on during hikes.
You can load your kiddo in by side-loading (as opposed to only putting the kid in through the top of the carrier. This is a great feature, especially as your child grows.
The kick stand - You can have the kick stand pushed in even if you have things in the lower storage compartment. On the osprey the lower compartment blocks the kickstand from shutting.
Overall, it's just WAY more comfortable than the Osprey Poco Premium AG. I also like the material better. I feel like it's more secure for my child.
I just came back from a 2 week trip in Japan where I didn't bother bringing a stroller and just carried Boen around in the backpack whenever we needed to transport him. The backpack is rated for about 40 pounds of kid and 9 pounds of gear. It has a built in sun shield/rain shield, but is an open configured backpack, so don't expect it to keep your kid dry in rain without him wearing waterproof clothing. In practice, mommy will probably scream at you long before kiddie gets wet and cold.
The major problem with this pack is that it's not really made for skinny men with no hips. As you can guess, I fall into that category, so I cinch up the waist belt all the way to minimum, clip it on, and luckily that's enough that it doesn't slip. Once you do that, all the weight is on your hip and you can definitely move around with the kid all day.
As you can see, I could bend down and shoot one kid and still have the other one in the backpack. I wouldn't call it the most comfortable position in the world, but it's doable, and I was doing this multiple days during the trip. At various points during the trip, I'd have Boen in the backpack, be towing a rolling luggage, have my CPAP sling bag around my neck, and the EOS M3 kit in a bag around my neck as well, and then walk to the hotel from the train station. That I could manage it all was a testament to how comfortable this pack was.
Boen seemed very comfortable as well, falling asleep in the backpack more than once. When Boen wasn't using the bag, Bowen would try to get into the bag and sit in it. I've carried Bowen in it a couple of times (he weighs about 10 pounds more than Boen). It's OK, but it's not more comfortable than just carrying him directly on my shoulders, though it probably is more comfortable for him. Since the pack itself weighs almost 10 pounds, whenever I can carry Bowen on my shoulders I do so rather than using the pack.
The one bug is in the kick-stand. It is possible for the kick-stand to fold in under the lowest metal bar at the bottom of the pack. Then when you reach back to unfold it you'll have to yank and yank to get it to unfold so you can put the pack down. If there's any improvement feasible, I'd say that limiting the motion of the folding kick-stand to eliminate this possibility would be high on my list of priorities.
I consider baby backpacks much better than any of the alternative carrier systems. They scale up better than any front carriers, and this one provides nice features like a built in hydration setup. It's expensive, but I guess having kids is just plain expensive and there's no way around it. Recommended.
I havent done any trips over five miles, so I can't say its fantastic, but my wife has done several long trips with the boy and the backpack. The fact that she can use it (5'2'', 100 lb) and I can use it (5'10'',180lb) and be comfortable is a wonderful thing.
After one week....
My comments above are not 100% correct. This carrier actually is very good. I played around with the strapping a bit and the carrier fits quite well. I was able to carry a 1.5 and a 5.5 y/o. The overall designed could be much better.... I would give this carrier a 4.5 star.
