REI Passage 38 Pack - Kids' Video

The REI Passage 38 Pack is designed for aspiring young hikers. It uses the same quality materials as adult packs, making it a durable, comfortable—and fun—choice for kids ages 6 to 11.


  • Adjustable harness fits 12 - 16 in. torsos and lets the pack grow with your child; highly visible torso adjustment increment markers make it easy to fine-tune the fit
  • Contoured padding in shoulder straps, hipbelt and back is covered with breathable mesh to provide cushioning and ventilation
  • Spring-steel perimeter frame allows back padding to conform to a child's back; it also supports, stabilizes and shifts load to the hipbelt, where it can be comfortably carried
  • Reservoir pocket's external zip allows refills without unpacking the main compartment (hydration reservoir sold separately); drink tube can be routed over either shoulder
  • 2 zippered mesh pockets on the hipbelt keep snacks and other essentials close at hand
  • Front stretch mesh pocket is handy for a jacket or other bulky gear
  • Pack bottom features sleeping-pad straps with quick-release buckles
  • Ice axe loops and daisy chains provide external attachment points for tools and other gear; dual side pockets can hold water bottles
  • Side compression straps let you cinch down and stabilize loads
  • Adjustable sternum strap features a safety whistle built into the buckle
  • The REI Passage 38 Pack is designed and sized to fit kids ages 6 - 11
