Ultimate Holiday Wishlist – KeltyKids Carrier Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

Baby carrying isn’t a new fad. Its history goes back to some ancient cultures like South America, Egypt and Africa. Over the last 30 years there have been great strides in modernizing and streamlining baby carriers. While I have used many different types of carriers over the years the Kelty Kids framed carrier has been one of our favorites for day long events like sight-seeing in Washington DC, cold weather activities like an autumn night corn maze and vacations at the beach. The sizing allowed both Rob and I to wear it easily with simple adjustment and the roominess in the carrier pocket allowed the children to wear cold weather clothing with jeopardizing comfort and fit. It sometimes gets a bit heavy and hot but it’s the way to go for lots of walking

Kelty Kids is reintroducing their line of carriers for 2010 with a variety of new and innovative technologies to offer the safest, most comfortable, functional, and easy to use carriers available. All new for 2010 the framed and transit child carriers come with a waist belt torso length adjustment, providing a safe, comfortable, and custom fit for parents of any size. This improvement in torso length adjustment allows the child to ride lower, creating a lower center of gravity for better balance and comfort for the parent. The carriers come in three vibrant colors and contain many striking details that enhance the overall safety, function and aesthetics of the carriers.
Kelty’s Framed Carrier (FC) 2.0 features a padded, adjustable-height child seat, a ventilated cockpit, and a five-point adjustable harness to provide a comfy fit for growing kids. A patented auto-deploy kickstand makes loading and unloading safe, simple, and worry-free. 1150 cubic inches of storage space for diapers, snacks and extra clothing is divided between a roomy compartment behind the seat and a second compartment under the seat. Sun hood and changing pad sold separately. This carrier will retail for approx. $199.95 at participating retailers such as

Dad’s Perspective: The price is steep but as the saying goes you get what you pay for.  The Kelty was a great investment and has lasted us many years compared to the many other different carriers we’ve bought, returned, sold, given away and traded.
