Why we LOVE Kinerpack:
- Handcrafted in small batches in the USA!
- They are WAHP* driven, and foster a family friendly work place! *WORK-AT-HOME-PARENT
The Kinderpack is a totally different kind of soft structured carrier. It features a uniquely shaped and contoured body panel that creates a molded and rounded seat for baby’s bottom. It conforms to your child so naturally! The Kinderpack cradles their legs in upward comfort by fostering the recommended “bottom-lower-than-knees” seated position. This puts baby in a proper, ergonomic, and supportive positioning more intuitively than any other carrier. Kinderpack's innovative body panel design eliminates leg, pelvic, and spine pressure, which is typically caused by legs dangling in other baby carriers.
The Kinderpack is also in a class of its own by offering 4 sizes for your child, including one of the only carriers on the market specifically designed for preschoolers! Our infant size boasts an adjustable base to change the width of the carrier- the only full soft structured carrier to do so. The standard size is perfect for those who want to buy once, keep forever. The toddler size is the best choice for your little one that is approaching 30 lbs or 32 inches, and wants to be arms-in. And for those bigger kids who still want to snuggle and need a little help keeping up with the older ones, we offer the preschool size- no other carrier on the market is as large. Preschool size is also a great carrier for older children with special needs.
Sizes for the child:
Infant: up to 2 years, 8-35 lbs, starting at 22" tall
Standard: 8mo-3 yrs 20-40lbs, starting at around 30″ tall
Toddler: 18mo-4+ yrs, 25-45 lbs, starting at around 32" tall
Preschool: 3-5 years, 35-55 lbs, starting at 38″ tall
Sizes for the adult:
The Kinderpack is available in 2 sizes, standard or plus size, for a custom fit for you:
Size 0-22 (19-20″ straps+ 13″ of webbing; waistband fit 26″-60″)
Size 18 and up (24″ straps+ 13″ of webbing; waistband fits 26″-60″)- great for large busted women, and tall men.
*Plus size straps on infant and standard sizes can be used by parents that may not meet the minimum recommended clothing size
Straps and Waist
The shoulder straps are slightly contoured with an integrated, quick adjust chest strap.
Kinderpack first innovated the "Perfect Fit" strap length adjusters. This feature can shorten the length of the shoulder strap for your “Perfect Fit”. If tightened, you can also loosen them to create more space for nursing.
The shoulder strap is generously padded for optimal comfort and is shaped just enough to avoid the dreaded underarm rub.
The semi curved, 3 part waistband conforms to most body shapes without pushing your pants down (this is a common problem with many other carriers!)
Hood or Sleep Shade
All full panel (non-Koolnit) have a 2 piece lined hood that is aviator shaped. Very cute! The hood features the completely exclusive ‘stuff and snap’ hood design. Simply stuff the hood inside the body when not in use and snap the 2 piece structured headrest together!
This also creates a pocket for soft items such as a diaper. Very convenient! You dont have to choose between a carrier with a headrest or a hood- the Kinderpack has both! The Kinderpack hood also features a buckled hood tie.
*Note: Kinderpacks with Koolnit, or mesh of any kind, have flat, rectangular sleep shades instead of the shaped hood.
The 3 piece shaped contoured body is the first of its kind. The curved pieces form a bulbous seat pocket for baby’s bottom that curves in at baby’s back. This exclusive shaping promotes proper support and follows the shape of their little bottoms and backs, making their wearing experience as comfy as it can be. There really is a difference!
As with all Kindercarry baby carriers, canvas is the main fabric used for straps, body, and internal layers. Our carriers are some of the most supportive and sturdy on the market. All structural components are made from 8 oz Brushed Canvas, and then paired with a fashion print for style. Each Kinderpack has an internal layer of canvas or twill inside the body. Shoulder straps, webbing, and waistband are reinforced with bar tacking internally and X or V box reinforcement you can see on the outside at all joining points. All of these details make for an extremely strong and durable baby carrier.
** Please be advised that soft structured carriers are made to be worn more loosely than mei tais and wraps. This may take a little getting used to if those are the kinds of carriers you are used to wearing. Tightening your straps as far as they go, and then easing back on the buckle slightly, will give you your best fit. Avoid tightening straps too tightly- this will cause neck strain and underarm rub.
