Serious hikers face a problem as they grow older and form a family: infants aren’t really built for tromping through the woods on miles-long outings. Fortunately, Kelty’s Pathfinder 3.0 backpack/baby carrier offers an alternative.
It’s a proper frame backpack that’s been designed to carry your young one, complete with a zip-off daypack and an included changing mat. The actual baby nest is equipped with leg straps and a 5-point harness to ensure comfort.
It’s not the sexiest piece of gear, but Kelty’s backpack-style infant carriers are widely used and this 3.0 iteration continues to improve on the popular design.
