My taller than average 6 yr old has been using an REI Tarn 18, although heís out grown it and my 8 yr old is using an Osprey Passage 40 for backpacking trips. Both REI and Osprey have an array of youth pack options.
Just tend your own and live.

I bought a cheap one at Walmart, camo with pink.  I think I still have it somewhere, too bad you weren't closer as you could have it.

Wow, how ironic is this  ;).  I was reading some pack reviews over on Rokslide and saw that this particular company/pack was being reviewed.  it's actually a pack designed for kids.  May be worth taking a look.

I have one I bought years ago from REI, and the torso is a bit too short. 

It's an ultralight pack, so it is not some huge behemoth.  I was keeping it around for my oldest, but that it is probably years off.

It is in storage, but I expect to be up north sometime this weekend, if you want to grab it.  If it works out, keep it.

Kuiu 1850 would fit good and she could use it as she gets older
Get 1 with the frame and you can just get different bags
A little spendy but worth it
I bought my adult daughter one and my 8 yr old grandson was packing it around this year

I haven't made either of my girls carry a pack yet.  Just keep it fun and let them enjoy it for a couple years.

She loves carrying a pack


I don't put much weight in it, maybe a MH meal or two, a jetboil or a turkey decoy.


Bulky but lightweight stuff, the pack in this pic has a few turkey decoys.

The Tarn 18 is the way to go for a day pack.
:fire.:

" 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

I forgot to mention that kids aren't as picky or particular for gear as we are, whatever you get they will like and use and hold the junk you put in it.
