Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed with the features and test drive at home I got this for my boys for scouting. We haven't use it outdoor yet, but we test drove it with everything that would be packed normally. I like it when I saw this at the store. Features like day pack, rain cover and the zippered pouches on the belt support are great to have. It is larger that what I was looking for. It has room to spare even after putting all his usual stuffs in, but with the compressions straps everything are tightened up nicely. The pack looks nice and balanced on his back and he says it feels great. I tried it on my two sons, and it fits both my 11 yo 4'5" 70 lbs and 13 yo 5'5" sons with plenty of torso adjustment to spare. It should last them for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love! I purchased this as a step up from a 40L. The 70L was intimidating as I am 5'2". Finding a pack to fit me is always challenging, so I go to kids' sizes. This pack is amazing! Fits wonderfully everywhere and has so many features! I love the day pack feature and the fact that it has a rain cover. I last used it on a 3 day women's backpacking trip and I didn't have a single complaint. I just loved it more each day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best kids pack I could find My review is based off shopping at two different REI's and concluding that this was THE pack for my 13 year old. Employee in Berkeley looked at my son and said this was the pack to get. It was out of stock. We tried a few others and he told us they had it at another store 20 miles away. We made the trek. It was worth it. He carried 20 lbs in the store and it held snugly to his 14" torso. Hip belt looked great... and carried the weight. Can't wait to get to the Sierras next week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for young boy scouts I bought this for my 12 year old son to use backpacking with scouts. He used it on his first backpacking trip, a 5 mile round trip hike, and it worked perfectly. He fit everything he needed in there with plenty of space to spare. It was comfortable and we are both very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for kids, not for women I am a small woman and was pointed in the direction to this backpack. I like how there are a lot of adjustments that can be made to make it fit. However, it is far too small to take on longer backpacking trips. There is not much cushioning on the hips. It is perfect for kids, however it is not a keeper for me.
