Pro Allows you to move freely
The waist and hip belts have pivots that flex as you move your body. This means you can move around freely without being restricted by the heavy, rigid baby carrier.
Pro Secures your baby
Your baby is secured with shoulder straps that click into a central buckle between his legs to create a secure five-point harness. There are also side panels that you can tighten in place, protecting your baby from any possible bumps and falls.
Pro Has a headrest for added safety and comfort
A high, padded headrest provides better neck support which allows your child to lay back, rest and even take a nap. It also protects your baby's head in case you fall backward.
The Deuter KC III may be too expensive if you only plan on using it occasionally. It's still a great product if you hike a lot with your baby.
