Deuter Alpine Back System
Deuter’s Alpine Back System focuses on a compact, secure yet comfortable fit with
its two flexible softstripe back pads that are perfectly adapted to
the anatomy and follow the wearer’s movements. In combination
with the pack’s sleek shape this keeps the load close to the center
of gravity – thus guaranteeing full pack control and full focus on
the terrain. Further, the smart air channel between the two stripes
grants excellent ventilation.
The system combines a secure, compact fit with a top carry-
ing performance and comfortable ventilation between the
two softstripe back pads.
Deuter Aircomfort Vario System
The heart of the Aircomfort systems
– tested and proven for decades – is its flexible spring steel frame.
It is extremely durable, provides stable tension for the airy back
mesh and creates the ventilation space between pack and wearer’s
back, which lets moist air escape. The highly elastic spring steel
frame construction of the Aircomfort FlexLite achieves maximum
freedom of movement at minimum weight.
The maximum ventilation achieved by the Aircomfort mesh
construction significantly reduces heat buildup. According
to findings from the acclaimed Hohenstein Institute, optimal
back ventilation reduces moisture loss by up to 25 %.

Light weight kid carrierVery comfortable for long hikes with elevation. Very comfortable harness that allows air to pass between you and the kid. Very light weight, but has a good size day pack with plenty of room for diapers, snacks, bottles, etc.

Seriously Awesome Pack!My husband and I did a fair amount of hiking before having our son. Nothing too crazy, but usually just enough terrain to necessitate a hiking pack for taking our toddler out now. At 14 months old now, we hope to really get him out in nature this summer, so we needed a good hiking pack.
We decided to get a Deuter Pack, specifically the Kid Comfort Air. There are only a few brands that have name credibility as far as hiking packs for children go, but Deuter is top of the list and has amazing ratings across the board.
Why did I select this pack? Primarily, comfort for myself and my son. This pack is adjustable in every aspect, offers lumbar support for the adult, mesh lining so both you and your little one stay cool, great padded straps and padded straps and seat for your little one. I particularly loved the chin/head rest for the baby/toddler that's riding along. The seat offers a five-point harness to keep your little one safe and snug, and is wonderfully adjustable to keep them comfortable.
The pack has some great extras: good storage, offering multiple pockets and storage spaces, loops to hook items on to, a kickstand to assist with setting your child down while in the pack, and my personal favorite, foot straps for your child to rest their feet in (my guy loves to try to stand in the pack, or re-center his gravity by just flexing his legs.)
The side-entry option makes it incredibly simple to get your child into the pack. Within a matter of seconds I had my son in the pack, strapped in, and adjusted properly.
The pack is recommended for children that can sit up unassisted and hold their head up. The weigh limit should not exceed 45lbs. The pack itself is incredibly light, at only 6lbs. It easily folds up for storage and transport. The two handles make it easy to both carry, and assist with lifting to pull the pack on to your back (though, I've found that sitting on a bench or seat makes this infinitely easier to put on when alone.)
The pack is shockingly sturdy. The material is easy to clean, anti-chaf, durable, and comes in good, gender-neutral colors. The frame is also incredibly sturdy.
There are several accessories that can be purchased for this pack, too. A sun shade and weather shade are both options, which we will likely purchase in the future.
Depending on where you're purchasing, this pack will run you around $240. A fairly standard price for a good pack, and in my opinion worth every penny.
Overall, this pack is five stars in my book. A great, worthwhile purchase that will get us out into nature and hiking comfortably!
Thanks to Deuter for a wonderful product!
