Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight carrier with intuitive function. This carrier has become my baby gift go-to, for use when age appropriate. We've been Kelty fans for years, and now, as grandparents and gift-givers. It's easier, safer and cleaner than using a grocery cart or stroller for errands. It keeps baby/child up higher away from germ droplets and allows them to be social with smiles, while un-offensively encouraging strangers to respect personal space. Kelty carriers are intuitive and everything on this carrier is convenient to use from the "kick stand", easily accessible handles, seat height adjustment, washable pad, to the sternum comfort adjustments. Baby sits in padded comfort with plenty of airflow. Moosejaw made purchasing easy and convenient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, a little tricky to adjust I’m a little short (5’3”) and it’s been tricky to go get the carrier adjusted without leaving a gap between the carrier and my lower/mid back. That said, it feels safe and secure and my kid enjoys it!
Date published: 2022-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I have an oddly-shaped child so the ability to make multiple adjustments was great. Fits well and distributes weight well, so it is comfortable on longer hikes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Bought this for my multi-hike trip to SD abs WY. My littlest isn’t quite there yet for 6mile+ hikes so needed something to sharp him in that downtime. Overall works great (easy adjustments for fit, etc.). One drawback is that getting a toddler in can require and extra set of hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy! Bought this a month ago for a trip to FL and we are very happy with it. Lightens the load and distributes weight well. Child weighs 23 lbs and was able to walk miles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Fits well and has many adjustments. I am 5’ and my husband is 6’ so adjustability was a big one for me. My son seems very comfortable in the carrier. It looks to be a very high quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to have found Moosejaw! I purchased a Kelly backpack for my newborn and I to enjoy the outdoors together. Moosejaw had exactly what I was looking for and in the color I wanted. I’m grateful to have found Moosejaw as they have several products I know that I and the people close to me will enjoy. Moosejaw shipped the backpack quickly and at a fair price all around. Kudos!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality and easy to use Carrier is well made with easy adjustments to get the little one in and secured to hit the trails. My little one was comfortable enough he can fall asleep while in use.

Do you make another model for 50-60lbs? I have an 8yr old he is about 52lbs and loves to hike with me but he doesn’t walk and his adaptive equipment is not able to traverse the woods or no paved terrain. Thank you. 

Asked by: CPWarrior Momma
Hey there, thanks for your question. Unfortunately most child carriers, like the Kelty Journey Perfectfit Kid Carrier are going to top out with a max child weight of 40-45 lbs. Something like that may exist, but it would likely be more specialized adaptive equipment. Sorry for the bummer, but I hope this still helps.

Is it easy to clean? Are parts removable for machine wash ? 

Asked by: NurseRe
Hi NurseRe, thanks for the question. So sorry for the delay here, these are the cleaning recommendations straight from Kelty...I hope this helps! 1. Make a vinegar and water solution- 1 part water and 2 parts vinegar in a bowl or spray bottle for easy application 2. (optional) Add an essential oil to make it smell yummy! I like to use lemon, tea tree, or peppermint for their antibacterial properties 3. Have a soft bristled brush, sponge, or rag handy 4. spray, soak, or spot treat areas that need to be cleaned 5. DO NOT put in dryer- always air dry! 6. Get outside!

Can a baby sleep in this? Is there anywhere for him to rest his head?

Asked by: Momof1
Hey Momof1, thanks for the question! While I have seen babies sleep in this very child carrier, there is no specific headrest or head stabilizers to keep his head upright if he does fall asleep. I hope this helps!

How adjustable is the five point harness? We have a 2 year old that weighs 38 lbs and is very compactly built. We have had trouble in the past with carriers that should hold her weight, but the five point harness would barely fit around her.

Asked by: Marlo
Hey there, thanks for the great question. The five point harness on the Kelty Journey Perfectfit Kid Carrier adjusts to fit a torso range of 15.5-21in or 39-53cm. I hope this helps everyone get out and enjoy the outdoors!

Is there a lower weight/height limit? I’m looking for something to hike with my nine month old in, but want it to last a little while with him.

Asked by: Jroush
Hey there, thanks for your question. Kelty recommends a minimum child weight of 16lbs, by then they should be big enough to be secured properly. I hope this helps!

Hi there I have a 5 year old who is pretty tall but only weighs 35 pounds (she eats nonstop but just doesn't gain weight.) Would this work for her or do you think it is geared more towards younger children?

Asked by: ashtaylor
Hey ashtaylor, thanks for the question! This carrier is typically geared towards children that are a little smaller, but the weight capacity is technically 50 lbs including gear. If you are willing to carry her, I see no reason why this would not work, I'd just suspect her to grow out of it more quickly. I hope this helps!
