Kokopax Review And Giveaway

I never really used a carrier with my son. I thought it would be a waste of money and would just sit in a corner. Someone did give me a super cheap one that I just didn't like and I thought all carriers would be like that. At the time, I had no idea there were so many different options.

Photobucket

I was recently introduced to the Kokopax Classic Carrier. Kokopax is another company that was created by a mom who is trying to help make the life's of other parents easier. Kokopax was founded in 2007 after Sara Spoor realized that the backpack carrier was a necessity for her everyday life but they were unattractive. She came across some amazing fabrics and created a new, modern look that she knew other parents would appreciate.

Kokopax sent us the Classic Carrier in the Garden fabric for review. It comes in this carry bag.
Photobucket

A lot of thought was put into the design of the Kokopax Classic Carrier. By only weighing 2.7 pounds, it makes carrying a toddler around super easy! It is made of 100% cotton canvas and an anodized aluminum frame. To make it easy for anyone to use, there is an adjustable frame with comfortable shoulder straps and a padded waist support. There is even a toy ring at the front to keep baby happy with their favorite toys.

As always, safety is most important to me. This carrier has met and surpassed my expectations. There is a 5 point safety harness to keep baby secure. The picture below is showing how the kickstand works. You just open it up and sit baby in. Once you have the baby in and secured with the safety harness, it is easy to load them on your back even by yourself. You can also see the pocket in the back of the carrier that allows for a little extra storage.

My aunt happened to be in town when we got it about 2 months ago. She's only about 5' 3" and questioned whether or not it would be comfortable for her. We strapped Evan in and she took him for a ride around the house and then outside. She was extremely pleased with how light and easy it was to carry him.
Photobucket

My brother is about 6 feet tall and he wore it for a while. He was comfortable the whole time and said that he even forgot he was wearing it from time to time. Since then he's also worn it at the zoo with us and was perfectly fine during the whole trip.
Photobucket

One of my favorite things about the Carrier is that there is no strap that goes around your waist. Most carriers have one and they make me feel self conscious. This was the only carrier that I was able to use during my pregnancy because it was just like carrying a backpack.
Photobucket

Many carriers only allow you to wear them while baby is still pretty small. They become uncomfortable to wear when baby weighs more. The Kokopax carrier can be used on babies from about 6 months until they are 2 years old or 35 pounds. This is the only carrier that I've been able to use with Evan at this age-he's really too big for us to wear the other ones comfortably. The Kokopax Carrier evenly distributes the weight and makes it comfortable to use with heavier babies and toddlers.

I absolutely love this carrier and enjoy using it, my only problem is the size. It is super light, but it doesn't fold up very small. It's not one that I can keep in my car because it takes up a lot of space in the back and I still don't know where I'm going to stash it inside. Right now it is in Isabella's closet and it would be so much easier if I could just leave it in my car! I'm sure I'll walk out of the house many times and forget to bring it with me. You'll also have to use another carrier for babies under 6 months, which is fine because most of those carriers only go up to about 6 months and then you'll need a new one anyway.

Kokopax also carries a tote and sun hat. The Blakely Ring Tote is available in the same colors as the Carriers for a perfect match! It is 18” x 4 ½” x 18" and made of 100% cotton canvas. There is an attachable mini-tote and separate zipper pocket for extra storage. The key fob and bottle/beverage compartment makes this tote amazingly functional.
