Unfortunately, the Deuter Kanga Kid Carrier is not designed to carry adults(yeah, looks like you're walking, pal), but it will keep your kid feeling good when its time to be toted.

Positive Reviews:

When our one year-old son got too big for the Bjorn, we started looking for backpack carriers. We have a large dog and do lots of walking on a daily basis, so we wanted something sturdy, light, and not too bulky. We ordered the KangaKid since it looked like the kind of thing we wanted (and because has such an easy return process if we didn't like it). We have not been disappointed. It's pretty easy to load our son into the pack; if only one of us is home, we sit it on the couch, get him secured, and then sit in front of the pack to put it on. Everything adjusts easily so we have been able to trade off between me and my husband without too much trouble. It's not too heavy, our son likes it, and there's a decent amount of room in the pockets if we ever decide to carry more than just him. And for those of you who care about where products are made, you might be interested to know this one is NOT made in China.

i have made a lot of investments for Lucy since she arrived (8 days late!) and the KangaKid is by FAR the best one in my bag of tricks. Lucy started riding in the KangaKid at about 14lbs, when she had good head control, and she loves it. I use the bag for farmer's markets, hikes (it is really comfy, esp because Lucy is now almost 20 lbs!) , and I used it for travel through the airport at the holidays. The backpack is a great diaper bag! It has great zip pockets, in all sizes, and is easy to organize for the one reach action. The best part of the Kangakid is that the straps are easy to adjust, I can wear it and then my husband can use it with little fuss.

I have an older year of this pack and it is great. It's a lot smaller and lighter than most packs and still has quite a bit of room for extra stuff. Comfortable and Durable!

We purchased the Kanga Kid for our 5 month old. We liked the ability for it to double as a diaper bag and the smaller size given its lack of an external frame. However, it is not nearly as comfortable for the wearer as the Deuter Kid Comfort II for longer hauls, and our daughter (who is tall for her age), couldn't seem to find a comfortable sleeping position. Also, it is built to be worn by shorter adults (it fit my wife well at 5'3", but there was no way I was going to wear it at 6'3"). I would recommend it for short hauls around the city for infants, but if you're going to spend this much, you might as well upgrade to the Kid Comfort II, which is an amazing and adjustable pack.

We bought this carrier for me to carry my daughter. I am 5.10 and unfortunately this backpack won't adjust enough for my height. If I loosen the straps, my daughter is hanging too far off my body and all the weight is on my shoulders/neck. I can't get the weight on my hips. The backpack is great, but not for tall people
