Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking/backpacking pack for young kids Bought this pack some years ago for our son, now 12. He started using it around age 7-8 for short backpacking trips. Comfortable to wear with easily adjustable straps, proper padding and support for small bodies and longer hikes. Lightweight so kids aren't carrying too much load. Big enough to fit his sleeping bag, pad and change of clothes & snacks for 2-3 day backpacking trips. Several exterior attachment points for trekking poles and miscellaneous items. Now that he's older (12), he uses it for day hikes, wilderness camp, climbing trips, etc. Has held up well for all those trips and years, and is still in great shape!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from dueter pack The product is well made and has multiple attachment points on the exterior of the pack. It is well made for youth hikers but it needs to be the correct size.. When reading online and in product specs it states that it fits torso sizes 10-17". This pack does not have the adjustable torso length that many of the other packs for youth have. While this may be true it fits these sizes of torsos, the adjustable torso feature is what I was seeking after. My son is 55 lbs (9 years old) and the pack does not fit him well as his torso is 11 inches. Unfortunately I purchased online before seeing the product in person. I would recommend being in-store and fitting your child prior to purchasing. I think it would be a good pack if it was a good fit for the youth (14-17 inches).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! Purchased this for our 11 year old son. He will mostly use it as a day pack, but his Jr. sleeping bag will also fit in it if he needs it for an overnight. Love all the loops and conveniences of an adult bag. The color is great, bright green, with a greenish gray. He was super excited when he saw it.

Is this pack waterproof ?

Asked by: Runwild
This pack's fabric is water-resistant, not waterproof. The seams are not sealed and the zippers are not waterproofed. We recommend a raincover.

For what age is this pack recommended?

Asked by: esfroglegs
Dueter does not list a specific age recommendation for the Climber Pack. The best bet would be to measure the child's torso length. The link below will teach you how to measure torso size for sizing a backpack. Once you have the proper torso length, you can match that number with the torso range in the specs tab on
