Leaf peeping season is here in Maine and what better way to check out the gorgeous foliage than to walk amid it?
Kelty has made that adventure family friendly with its line of Frame Child Carriers. There are three models to choose from, but they all have these in common: a strong internal frame to transfer Junior’s weight to the hips, comfy shoulder straps and hip belt for mom or dad, a cozy and secure cockpit to hold the little one safely, a max load limit of 50 pounds and an auto-deploy kickstand to make loading and unloading a little easier on everyone.
Models range from the basic FC 1.0 for short outings to the mid-range FC 2.0 to the top of the line FC 3.0 that includes a changing pad and sun hood as well as a tricked-out harness and hip belt system.
There’s plenty of storage space for a picnic lunch, extra layers or all those diapering necessities.
Now there’s no excuse not to take that family hiking trip you keep talking about.
