Are your kids getting serious about backpacking or do you want your child's first backpacking experience to be comfortable? Either way, the Osprey Ace 50 is a great choice! All the technical features for an experienced backpacker, but also all the comfort to help make the first backpack a great one! Although designed for youth, this pack has the same award-winning LightWire™ suspension as Osprey’s adult models. The mesh back panel and shoulder harness ensure all-day comfort. Mesh pockets for quick access, a separated sleeping bag compartment, sleeping pad straps, zippered lid pockets mean you have tons of options for packing and organizing your pack. A really well-made pack that has up to 5"(13cm) of adjustment to keep up with your growing adventurer!
PRO TIP: Be careful not to buy too big as it has to fit comfortably especially if using for backpacking trips.
Recommend carry weight is 15-20% of body weight! We have personally found closer to 15% or a quick estimate is their age converted to pounds, so a 10-year-old will probably be comfortable carry around 10 Lbs.
