We've owned this pack for about a year now and my daughter and we absolutely love it. She is 21 months old and loves to get in and head outdoors with Mom & Dad. When loading her in the pack, getting her legs through the openings takes a few tries, but once they're through, putting the shoulder straps around her and clicking her in takes a few seconds. Once you can master the motions of lifting the pack up on your knee, then putting the shoulder straps on, it becomes a very quick process. The shoulder straps and hip belt adjustments are great and provide enough adjustment for most people. The kickstand is an extremely helpful feature for dismounts and the retractable rain cover has come in handy many times. We highly recommend this product.
