Deuter's 2014 Kid Comforts gain JPMA certification


Longmont, CO – Deuter, manufacturer of high-quality, technical packs, announces its 2014 line of kid carriers has achieved a new standard of excellence: certification from the prestigious Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA).

Deuter launched its retooled line of Kid Comforts early this year. Models include the Kid Comfort 1, Kid Comfort 2, Kid Comfort 3, as well as one brand new pack in the collection: the Kid Comfort Air.

All four models have achieved JPMA certification, the gold-standard in safety certification for kids and baby products. Achieving JPMA certification means the products have been independently sample tested and verified as conforming to ASTM, state, federal and some retailer requirements.

“We’re extremely proud of our new Kid Comforts,” said Christian Mason, Director of Sales and Marketing at Deuter USA. “The JPMA certification reinforces what our dealers and customers already know – Deuter builds the most thoughtful, versatile and safe kid carriers in the outdoor market. We are even more confident in knowing that our kid carriers are among an elite class of products that carry the JPMA seal of approval.”

All of Deuter’s Kid Comforts feature a new frame design, providing utmost support for both child and adult. The four Kid Comforts – all designed with comfort and fit in mind – range in price from $199 for the Kid Comfort 1, the new Kid Comfort Air at $239 (with the breathable Aircomfort back system), to $299 for the Kid Comfort 3 (a full-featured model designed for all family adventures).
