  • Horrible ergonomics & worthless adjustments!

    Aug 22, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None! If it won't carry a baby, who cares if it has a rain hood?
    Cons: Pathetic design! Worthless back support, rough velcro rubs baby's legs, too many straps!

    Summary: Even though it cost less than a Baby Bjorn, this carrier was the biggest waste of money we encountered as new parents! Forget all of the features Kelty is touting. The people that designed this obviously never actually tried carrying a child in it. ... read more

    Pros: Sturdy and Light--FIT FIT FIT!!!
    Cons: Can be complicated to adjust

    Summary: I am in love with this carrier! I'll start with a little backstory (pun fully intended): I feel very strongly that babies should be carried as much as possible. And I have a rather nasty hip injury from a car accident. Enter (finally!) the Base Camp! ... read more

  • The best for my baby!

    Jan 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, keeps baby close to mommy, keeps mommy's hands free to deal with siblings.
    Cons: Bib is too small. Can be hard to put on alone. Instructions not detailed enough.

    Summary: I bought this carrier after my baby started to get wiggly in the NoJo Sling. I did try some cheaper carriers, and being a large person they all seemed to tight and they dug into my shoulders. This carrier distributes the weight ... read more

    Pros: easy to use and put on
    Cons: kid gets bigger and heavier:)

    Summary: This is too cool. I used this for both of my kids ( they are a bit older now...but I did use one ) I prefer this brand over the others for many reasons and the first being comfort. I found that this is much more comfortable than the other name ... read more

    Pros: Truly comfortable for the baby and the wearer; durable.
    Cons: Velcro leg attachments can rub baby's legs.

    Summary: The Kelty K.I.D.S. Kangaroo pack is WONDERFUL! The pack is truly comfortable to wear for long periods of time and my son loves it. He is thrilled to be carried all over and does not fuss while in it. He is even comfortable enough to fall ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: ease of use; neat design features
    Cons: the bib can be a lot larger, but you can easily make your own

    Summary: I purchased the Kelty Kangaroo carrier when Ewan was born. He was only 6lbs 4 oz, so we waited til he was a few weeks old and 2 pounds heavier. This is the best baby purchase we have made. I personally HATE strollers as they are so hard to ... read more

  • Good for larger babies

    Pros: Distributes weight onto hips/waist
    Cons: No sun/rain protection forward facing

    Summary: We purchased a second hand Kelty Kangaroo from eBay after our baby got too heavy for the Baby Bjorn. The trouble we were having was a lot of shoulder strain from his nearly 20 pounds basically hanging off our shoulders. The Kelty Kangaroo has a waist ... read more

  • Good enough for a real hike

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Puts the weight on your hips, not back
    Cons: pricey

    Summary: Our Kangaroo Pack made the difference between a good summer and frustration last year. When our first baby was born, we had a hand-me-down front pack (manufacturer's name mercifully lost in oblivion) which was absolute torture to wear for more than a few ... read more

    Pros: comfort, able to lay baby down without pulling them out of a pack
    Cons: quite a lot of straps, takes a minute or two to put it on

    Summary: I am currently using this pack with my 3rd baby. Even though it takes a while to figure out all the straps it is the most comfortable pack I have used. It is the only one I know of that when your baby falls asleep you can quietly detach the baby, all ... read more

    Pros: - nice storage pack for the necessities - comfortable for long periods of time
    Cons: - the velcro straps around the baby's legs can rub

    Summary: LOVE THIS PACK!! With my oldest son, I had a different pack and found it extremely awkward to use. It was difficult to get him in or out, and if he fell asleep, he was definitely in there until he awoke. With the Kelty pack, that I borrowed from a ... read more

    Pros: Better than no carrier!
    Cons: Uncomfortable and very difficult to get child in and out without assistance

    Summary: I am a big fan of the baby carrier as my baby loves to be held close to my body. We received this carrier as a gift and have struggled with it for 7 months now. I do use it daily, but I don't like it and would certainly never recommend it to anyone! ... read more

    Pros: None.
    Cons: Your aching neck back shoulders.

    Summary: Purchased online because of the Kelty name. Have had a Kelty backpack for 20 years now so felt this would be a safe bet. Basic and HUGE problem: The waistbelt attaches to the frame via a strange all-in-one-connected arrangement; first connecting to ... read more

    Pros: Easy to put on, the baby loves it and often falls asleep in it!
    Cons: Bulky, hard to store compactly.
