Description: A fresh take on the backpacks of previous generations, the Kokopax Classic Carrier is a spunky, contemporary, and extremely lightweight frame carrier. It weighs a mere 2.7 pounds (most other frame carriers weigh at least 7 pounds!) and features an adjustable, anodized aluminum frame. The Kokopax Carrier has all the things you'd expect from a high-end carrier: a five point harness, adjustable and padded shoulder straps, a sturdy kick stand, and a pocket for all your extras. All this, and without the bulk! It even comes with a convenient carrying pack for easy travel. The Kokopax Classic Carrier is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), conforming to its standards for child carriers. Recommended for children from six months up to two years (or 35 pounds).
Why we like it: This classic carrier is so easy to load and unload. Using the kickstand, a parent can load their baby in the carrier and lift him into position without assistance. Babies enjoy their vantage point up on Mom or Dad's back, easily able to see the world around them. Of course we love how light the Kokopax is, making carrying a child on your back, even for long periods of time, a breeze. Voted "Best All Around Carrier" by Pregnancy Magazine, March 2009!
Things we wish were different: As with all outward-facing carriers, there is no comfortable head position for the child if they fall asleep in the carrier.
