We started hiking with Maya when she was 6 months old.
The minimum weight for a baby in the carrier is 16 lb.
I've heard of some families who have used this carrier with their kids 4 years and older!
The maximum child weight in this pack is 40lb.
Maya now at 19 months is 25.3 lb, so we have a while to go!
Duration of hike:
The longest we've tried to go with her has been 30 minutes as a time. We will take her out of the pack for a break for a few minutes, and then she's ready for another 30 minutes. She also has napped in the pack while hiking.
Which version to get:
The version I linked to above is the lowest cost hiking carrier Kelty sells. There are some cool features in the more expensive pack, but I do not feel like with our pack it NEEDS anything more, and didn't want to shell out an extra $50 for small features.
