After experimenting with an old Kelty Explorer, mainly to see if my 19 month old daughter would actually like it, I arrived at the Deuter Kid Comfort 1. So far it has been great. I find this carrier has all you need regarding storage features for short to medium excursions, and carries the weight nicely. It is not as fully featured as some other carriers. This particular model does not feature an automatic kick stand when you remove the pack to put it down, and is not compatible with the additional Deuter sun shade if I am not mistaken. The most important thing is the kiddo loves being in it for our outside adventures. This is a great product if you are looking for something well designed, and a bit lower profile than some of the other carriers.
