The Kelty Journey PerfectFIT Elite child carrier delivers safety for your little ride-along and comfort for the both of you. It also incorporates on-the-go adjustability, has a ton of storage capacity, and includes a number of other top-of-the-line features.
The carrier's PerfectFIT suspension system provides accurate on-body size adjustment so you can easily customize the fit even after you've put it on. Its broad torso adjustability range of 15.5"-21" allows the carrier to comfortably fit parents of varying heights and sizes. A lightweight aluminum frame provides stability and load-bearing strength. Hex mesh on the padded backpanel and waistbelt provides excellent cushioning and ventilation. Load lifter straps relieve stress on your shoulders and an adjustable sternum strap positions the shoulder straps across the chest to prevent chafing under the arms and on the shoulders. The carrier has a total carrying capacity of up to 50 pounds (including child, carrier, and any contents). The frame has a folding design that lets the carrier stand rigidly. Numerous built-in handles make it easy to grab and maneuver the carrier.
Your child rides safely inside the carrier's padded aluminum roll cage. The padded cockpit seat has height adjustability to "grow" with your child. Adjustable stirrups provide a comfortable place for little feet to rest. An integrated sunshade adds protection from glare, UV, and light precipitation and easily tucks out of the way when not in use.
The carrier provides 1587 cubic inches of storage. It has a large main storage compartment and a separate zippered pocket with internal organizational features. It also has side stretch mesh pockets, two zippered hipbelt pockets, and a handy zippered "dirty" compartment. An internal sleeve makes the carrier hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
The Kelty Journey PerfectFIT Elite child carrier is available in your choice of color options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Careful Research led me to this pack
Likes: Extraordinarily comfortable and adjustable for baby and me. Easy on and off with one person. Looks great. This pack is made from premium materials, and it feels and looks like it. The parts that need to be are easily washable in case of an accident. The integrated sunshade works well, and there are enough pockets and spots for a long day hike even without my wife carrying a separate pack. This is a top of the line pack, and if you were an avid hiker before kids and wondering how you can get back on the trail, this is the pack for you.
Dislikes: None, some would say cost, but you get what you pay for. I feel confident that when the time comes, I will pull this out from under the stairs and carry my grandkids in it.
