Kids backpacking pack
« on: July 21, 2019, 09:08:10 PM »
Im looking for a kids backpacking style pack for my 11 year old.  Hes a pretty solid kid and I think he can start pulling his weight a bit on our outings  :chuckle:

Does anyone have any ideas?  Ive looked into all of the hiking brands but theyre kind of pricey and a bit colorful.  Im sure hell want to use it on our hunting trips too so it would be nice to have something a bit more subdued.  Im sure hed love camo...

Let me know any suggestions or if anyone has one to sell.

Not a fan of REI, but at least go check them out for fit and models, then buy elsewhere, if possible. If you can get one that looks close to blaze orange, not a bad idea.

I see what you are saying about the color but you can find lots of packs that are close to OD Green. As we all know movement is far more noticeable than a non camouflage backpack. If you are looking to keep him happy find a pack that fits him properly and do not worry about the color.

Thanks for the replies!  Id be fine with an olive green or hunter orange type color - he would probably prefer cano if it was available - I hardly wear camo but the kids love it!

I've got one listed in the classifieds. I'd make a sweet deal on it.

It's an Osprey Ace 48.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
