MY REVIEW

kokopax classic carrier frame

I got to try out the Kokopax Classic Carrier, and it has been AWESOME so far this summer. We’ve done a bit of hiking, and this has been a life saver because our 2 year wants to be carried most of the time. I usually have the baby so that leaves my husband to carry our toddler and he doesn’t have mamma hips to help him.  This child frame carrier is great because it is macho enough for dad to wear and is sturdy enough to support children weighing up to 35 pounds. With the Kokopax frame carrier, we’re able to go on longer hikes and all be happy!

The thing I like about the Kokopax frame carrier more than other kinds is that it is sturdy enough to carry heavier children but not so huge and bulky that you don’t want to use it every day. This child carrier is fashionable and light weight so you can use it around the house, at the grocery store, or on a walk to the park. Our son loves to be perched up high on Mom or Dad’s back.

The Kokopax Classic Carrier has the following features:

  • made with 100% cotton canvas
  • anodized aluminum frame
  • comfortable shoulder straps
  • adjustable frame to fit individual user
  • padded waist support
  • handy storage pocket
  • kickstand for easy loading
  • 5-pt. safety harness
  • ties to secure pax protector™
  • toy ring to attach koko™ or other toys
  • weighs approximately 2.7 lbs.
  • fits in airline overhead bins
  • makes a great every day baby backpack
  • for use from 6 months to 2 years (or up to 35 pounds)
  • makes a great every day baby backpack
  • includes green carry bag

The two points I highlighted are my favorite. The frame can extend and be longer for taller parents, which we are, and we love this feature because it gets the back support in the most comfortable place. And having the kickstand makes it so easy to get on and off. You can safely and easily place the child in the carrier while it’s still on the ground and then lift it onto your shoulders.

The Kokopax Classic Carrier is a carrier that we use all the time, every where we go. It makes getting out and about with kids so much easier and has decreased the whining. When you can throw your child in this frame carrier, carrying them isn’t so bad!

You can check out all the Kokopax products on their website. Thanks, Kokopax!
