A favorite of on the go parents, the Deuter Kid Comfort 2 Child Carrier employs German engineering and extensive testing to ensure that your young adventurer enjoys both safety and comfort. Let’s take a closer look at its many features.
As you can see, the Kid Comfort 2 is a fully framed child carrier. So you have got aluminum materials, some of them out of view, some of them in view, that give the carrier its structure and its stability. Don’t have one of my children here today, but we do have a little teddy bear volunteer filling that space. It is going to enable me here to fold down this kickstand, something that you wouldn’t want to do if you had your actual child in here and had the pack resting on the ground.
You can see that folds away. It certainly makes it more convenient for throwing this in the car, for storing at home when it is not in use.
Do want to spin that around, though, so we can take a closer look at the Kid Comfort’s suspension system. Deuter, of course, is renowned for building performance backpacks and they are bringing that same technology into play here on this child carrier. So you have got a full foam cushioned back panel, some really nice ergonomics here. That carries through onto a fully padded hip belt and across the contoured shoulder strap. So really nice comfort for mom or dad, whomever is wearing the carrier. And there is adjustability here as well. So by reaching down behind the back panel there is a simple strap that can be pulled to adjust the height up or down so that this accommodates torso lengths ranging from 15 to 21 inches in length, so a really broad range of adjustability there makes this the kind of carrier that you can kind of swap between various users and have it be comfortable for each of those users, rather than it fitting one person really well but not the other. So definitely a nice feature there.
There are load lifter straps. There is an adjustable, sliding, sternum strap The hip belt is also adjustable. So lots of ways in which to really dial in that fit and make sure that this is carrying in a very stable fashion.
I am going to spin the pack again so we can take a closer look at the way in which the child actually settles in to the carrier. So you can see the buckle here. Your daughter or son is certainly safe inside there, tucked away. But also, because of that design, it is easy to get your child in and out. You have got a five point safety harness here, again, a lot of adjustability, just like you had for yourself as a wearer, but now for the child to ride comfortably, too.
So the height of seat can be adjusted. The straps can be adjusted as well. Key point to make here is child really shouldn’t be riding in a child carrier like this until he or she is able to hold their neck upright. Probably maxing out here around maybe 40 pounds. I hate to put a specific age on things, because, again, so long as the child can hold its head upright, it can ride comfortably here in the Kid Comfort.
Also want to point out the stirrups here. So little legs dangling in this seat all day long can get fatigued, can tire out. They can fall asleep. The legs here, so the integrated stirrups are a really nice feature. And there is height adjustability to that as well, so a lot of comfort to be had here for your child.
Also wan to point out some of the organizational features and the storage capacity on the Kid Comfort. So let’s spin that again and here you can see you have got an extremely large storage compartment for diapers, for anything and everything you might want or need on your everyday adventures, whether that is around town or is actually in the backcountry on day hikes. You have got some additional storage up above. I have got a water bottle thrown in there, a little zippered pocket, too, which is nice of any essentials. You do have some stretch storage pockets here on the side, put any number of things there. It can be a nice place to keep some toys handy for your kids, too. Deuter actually throws in this smaller teddy bear with each of the Kid Comforts. So a little something for your adventurer to play with there.
Also want to point out that the Kid Comfort is hydration system compatible. You don’t find that on each and every child carrier that is out there. there is actually a tucked away pocket here. It sits in front of your child behind the back panel so, really, it is out of the way. It doesn’t eat into any of the other storage capacity and it also just keeps that out of the way, handy for you to run a hydration hose over your shoulder and have that water at the ready. So that is a nice feature.
Another thing to call out here. There is a nice, soft cushioned chin pad here in the front. So, you know, whether your child is falling asleep during the day and just needs kind of a headrest there or just something to make you feel more comfortable about that separation there. It is a nice feature. It is really plush. It snaps out, can be replaced or cleaned, which is probably more important. It is machine washable. Unsnap that, throw that in the washing machine and off you go, especially smaller children that can get ... that can pick up some dirt along the way.
The Kid Comfort 2 does not come with a sun roof or a rain cover, but that is available separately from Deuter and there are connection points built right into the Child Carrier to let that work efficiently and easily.
As you can see, there are a ton of great features built into the Deuter Kid Comfort 2 child carrier. Perhaps more importantly, you have got comfort for you, you have got comfort for your child and also safety for your child. So the two of you can enjoy your time together outdoors.
