Child Carrier Backpack from Kelty Rocks – Our Product Review

So, as you can see by the post before this one, I was in the market for a child carrier backpack. I almost bought the backpack with the built in aluminum frame but ended up going with the less clunky ‘metro’ style child carrier backpack and got the Kelty TC 3.0 Child Carrier.

Opening the box alone was awesome. It is a very well built piece of equipment and it demands your attention when you first look at it. All of the pockets are well thought out, especially the two pockets sewn into the waist band. It puts them and everything in them at a hands reach any time.

The strapping harness system is very sturdy and built of high quality material that you don’t mind you child bumping up against at 8 months old. When the child is fully strapped in, a parent can feel 100% in the integrity of the pack and their child’s safety.

The warning labels that come with all kids equipment these days are ridiculous, this one is the same. Make sure you read the 10 page easy to follow instructions, guide and warning before strapping your litte one in.

In my opinion, the best part of this thing is how much our daughter loves it. Really, she loves it. Check out the video of our daughter in the Kelty TC 3.0 Child Carrier.


Yeah, over the past 8 months I have really gone hardcore over this dad thing. It’s awesome and every day gets better and better. I recommend the Kelty Child Carrier to anyone looking for a packpack to carry their kid in!

GREAT Child Carrier Backpack

We loved this child carrier. Our daughter outgrew it quick, but maybe time just flies when you're having fun. Very sturdy construction and quality materials.

Response: I wish I found more reviews when I bought this a few years ago. Now there are tons of review sites out there. Hopefully this will help someone.

Baby Backbacks With Support

It is pretty crazy to think that last year at this time I was playing poker one or two nights a week and not really accepting the reality of becoming a father.

The first couple months were are real adjustment for me. It could be because of the colic or just the fact that I have been selfish my entire life. For the past 25 years I have surfed when I wanted to, mountain biked when I wanted to, snowboarded when I wanted to and that was that. I want to surf at 6:30am guess what..I get up early and surf.

Anywho, all that is changed now. Like I said, tough for the first few months but it then becomes the best thing in the world. Becoming a father is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

I am currently waiting for Sydney to wake up. I am in the kitchen drinking coffee and shopping online for a new way to strap our daughter to us so we don’t have to put her in the stroller everywhere we go. Check this thing out:

    Another Spirit Airlines Customer Service Disaster

    GD Star Rating
    loading...

    I had a horrible experience with Spirit Airlines about 18 months ago. I booked a flight from Aguadilla Puerto Rico to Atlantic City New Jersey so Summer and I could go visit my family in Ocean City. After booking my flight online everything seemed fine. However, a month later I received an automated email telling me my flight numbers had changed. The problem with the new flight numbers? We would end up in Detroit, not Atlantic City.

    After weeks of back and forth and a long drawn out customer service nightmare I still could not get a refund on my ticket. They eventually gave me a credit that would not expire for my $600 and hours on the phone and I hung up. No more Spirit Airlines for me once this credit is used up.

    It has been 18 months since I was issued my credit and I was finally going to fly Spirit Airlines last again. I wasn’t looking forward to it, super small seats, pay for your snacks, pay for your sodas, pay for your water, pay for your bags and don’t forget a pocket full of change for the pay toilets. I called up reservations and tried booking my flight into Florida using my credit and guess what…my credit is expired. Yep, that’s right. No longer valid.

    I tried explaining my situation to the operator (that barely spoke English) and I was eventually escalated up and up the chain of command before I finally spoke with an operator that just plain said;

    “We are not going to honer this credit and there is nothing you can do about it over the phone. You may go to the corporate office in Florida and take it up with them.”

    Are you serious? If I have a ticket disput with a company I have to go to the corporate office to settle? This company is bullshit. They let you book your tickets and spend money online without even talking to an operator, but if they screw up it’s the consumer that pays the price.

    • Operators that don’t speak English
    • Wait an hour to talk to someone
    • Discount airfare for midgets
    • No airfare refunds when they screw up
    • No flight credit when they screw up

    It is official. Regardless of the fact that Spirit Airlines flies into Atlantic City which is only 15 minutes from my moms house, I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I will always fly Jet Blue and Continental into Newark or JFK from here on out.

    Fuck You Spirit Airlines.
