Well, to begin with, both of these new Kelty Child Carriers still offer all of the same features that made the Kelty Child Carrier very popular to start with. For example, the auto-deploy kickstand, height adjustable set, and sliding torso-adjuster. The new Kelty Child Carriers offer the same V-Bar structured cockpit, also known as the roll-cage. Both still provide the sophisticated suspension system capable of carrying up to 50 pounds, and Kelty's signature rain/sun hood. The waist belt and shoulder straps still offer plenty of padding, and the back panel continues to be thermo-formed for comfort. So, what's new?
Just how much Will they Cost?
With all the added features you'd expect a much higher price tag, but that is the one thing, both of these new Kelty Child Carriers are about the same price as the original copies. They cost roughly $30 dollars more than the previous models, based on in which you get them. The Pathfinder 3.0 Kelty Child Carrier does cost about $50 dollars more than the Journey 2.0, but that is since you obtain the zip-off day pack as well.
So What's Changed?
The child safety harness on both of these Kelty Child Carriers is surely an improvement. You now have buckles at the chest where you can unclasp the connectors, and easy-access leg loops that buckle within the magista pas cher legs. Quite simply, you will no longer need to feed little legs and arms through small openings. Both the Pathfinder 3.0 and Journey 2.0 Kelty Child Carriers offer hydration pack storage behind the rear panel, plus an easy access water bottle pocket located on the waist belt. The storage capacity is really exactly the same, except that the Pathfinder 3.0 Kelty Child Carrier now offers a zipper off day pack with two zippered pockets of their own, as well as two mesh water bottle pockets on the sides.
