I don't know who to look this up, so I thought you ladies may be the best way for me to get information about this.
I have a question about hiking backpacks. I purchased a Kelty backpack off of Craigslist in order to take LO out on hikes this summer. I tried it out this past week and my daughter (18 months, 20 pounds) loved it. However, I noticed that she was basically standing up in the seat. It was only supporting her crotch, and her legs were straight down. She was happy as a lark the whole time, but I am worried about using it with her.
I didn't realize how unsupported she was until we were into the hike and now I'm afraid to use it again.
Is this how the hiking backpacks are? Do you know of a way I can modify it to make it more supportive?
I am not opposed to re-selling the pack, but I don't think I can justify dropping $200 for a fancy backpack, since I really don't see myself using it enough to make the cost-per-use worth it.
Any information or suggestions you have for me are so appreciated! Thank you!
