Kinderpack Review

By B

The Kinderpack was generously donated to the library by Kindercarry. Thanks!

I tried this out with my 11-13 month old.This is a super duper comfy carrier. It is very well thought out, with some nice little touches. Our carrier is the “standard” size and it fits baby girl just right.

Kinderpacks come in a variety of sizes, from infant to preschool. You can also get custom sized straps from petite to plus sized. Info on the standard size from the KP site:

standard: 16″ h x 17″ w- ages 8mo-3 yrs : starting at 20lbs/28″ and up to 38″

standard is the choice for most people.  Please realize that the standard will fit up to 3 years old/4T.  This is the size to buy if you want to buy one carrier without having to size up later.”

Kinderpacks are made by  WAHM right here in Illinois. This is another carrier you can tell is made by a babywearing mama. It has some great features that only a babywearer would think of.

The shoulder straps adjust at both ends of the buckles. This makes it easier to get the exact fit that you want.

I love the hood. It tucks into the body. The cavity then snaps closed, creating kind of a headrest, a great idea.

Hood out:

And in:

The website has a lot of excellent info on the carriers, the ordering process, even videos on how to wear it.

I found the whole carrier somewhat thicker than other SSCs in the body area and the shoulder straps to be wider. The fabric is soft, but sturdy.

Like all SSCs, the Kinderpack is great at distributing weight to your hips. It is quick and easy to get on and off. It can be used for front, hip or back carries. It is easy to fold up compactly to carry with you. I think soft structured carriers are also easy to wear empty if baby wants to hop out and crawl around for a bit. They offer good coverage for nursing as well.

I tried my 4.5  year old in it

For a large kid in a carrier not really designed for a giant child, this was pretty comfy. Even though this is sized for a much smaller person, he still has a nice seat in this, with good positioning.

Bottom line: Kinderpacks are a very comfortable, very customizable carrier with a lot of special touches.

Carrier: Kinderpack (standard size)

Reviewed with child age: 17 months

The Kinderpack is a soft- structured carrier for front and back carries. They are made in infant, standard, toddler and even preschool sizes, so you can find the right size for your family’s needs.

The waist strap buckles in the front and adjusts simply and easily. The shoulder straps are wider and have more padding than most SSCs (the straps also come in petite, standard and plus sizes). The body of the carrier is also wider than most, and results in a very comfy seat for your little one.

Fabric designs are always changing, so if you are interested, you have to keep a close eye out for the design that suits you best. 

We used the carrier for a recent trip to Wisconsin and took a couple mile long walk at a nature preserve.

Later in the day, I used the Kinderpack to tour a museum for another few miles of walking. I was surprised how light my son seemed and I felt absolutely no repercussions from carrying him such long distances.

This carrier is on my top list of favorites! Getting to spend some time with this carrier to review it has only made me want one more. And it is not just me, I asked my son to pick out a carrier to ride in at a recent BWI event. He picked the Kinderpack not just once, but twice that day! 

Kindercarry (the company who makes Kinderpack) also makes mei tai carriers. Following Kindercarry on Facebook or Twitter is a good way to stay updated on new stockings.
