I can’t shake this part of myself – this yearning desire, this need, for a personal connection with the outdoors. And as my little one grows up, I feel opportunity returning. Which is why it’s so hard when things fall through.

I’m the kind of woman who immediately started thinking about outdoor baby gear when she found she was pregnant. I couldn’t accept the possibility that my passion for hiking would end up on the back burner. So, even in the early stages of pregnancy I started researching how I would get out on the trail with my little one.
The Deuter Kid Comfort series came up many times in my research, and after some humming and hawing I decided I’d give the Deuter Kid Comfort III ($299 USD) – also known as “The Cadillac” of carriers – a try.
