Deuter Kid Comfort Air backpack

If your kiddo’s little legs can’t carry him along fast enough to maximize crag time or the terrain is too rough or steep, give him a luxurious, complaint-free ride in the Kid Comfort Air. It follows the design ethic we like best: everything you need, nothing you don’t. “It has enough storage for layers and on-the-go essentials—from water bottles to stuffed animals,” said one climbing mom. It’s light and comfy at 5 lbs., 14 oz.: “The feel and load transfer is on par with the best large packs—and it was cozy for our little guy, too.” Load from the top or a side panel, and she sits in a cushioned, adjustable five-point harness with stirrups for feet, which helps balance out weight.
