Go get 'em, tiger.

Maybe your cute little monster isn't ready for a full sized pack just yet, but she can still load up the Osprey Ace 50 Kids' Backpack and lead you down the trail. The Ace packs the features of Osprey's adult packs into a size that's designed to fit kids up to 14 or so, and it has adjustable shoulder straps so your kid won't outgrow it in 16 hours. All the extras are there too, like a loop for her ice axe or fishing pole, an attachment for trekking poles, an integrated rain cover, and compression straps to lock the whole thing down.

  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Fit-on-the-Fly adjustable passed hip belt
  • Ice axe/fishing pole loop
  • Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment
  • Stretch mesh front and side pockets
  • Removable lid with zippered under-lid pocket
  • Compression straps
  • Integrated rain cover

I’ve looked and looked for internal frame packs for my kids... The issue is the suspension - most importantly the hip belt and how it transfers weight from the bottom of the frames stays (rods) to the hip bone... My issue - none of these packs do it well in a size I need in torso and waist for my kids. The Ace 50 is a great pack: the weight is where you want it to be considering your kids are gonna carry between 12-20lbs... features are fine but the suspension ...ugh!... not terrible but really not much better than the rest. As expected 5 miles into day as the foam and material warmed up the suspensions started to sag on to my kids butts and they were not happy. On prior trips they carried REI Passage 40's - while a heavier pack by about a pound the suspensions were much better... BUT - they no longer make the 40's... only the 65's... which is too much volume for my kids... Murphy's Law.

Hey there Sam, Leta with Osprey here. I am sorry that your kids had a not-so-great experience with this pack. I am wondering if everything was positioned right for them? My son (11) used the pack and had a great experience, except for the weight got "old" and he just wasnt used to wearing a pack. I will send this feedback over to my friend and the owner and designer at Osprey, Mike Pfotenhauer.
I really appreciate you taking the time to write,

Leta Kalfas -
Thank you for your comment... Unfortunetly yes.. the pack was adjusted and fitted perfectly. 10 yeas in the industry selling and fitting Gregory and Dana Design Packs (Yes it was a bit ago) I know what I'm doing... Its a good pack but there is no active transfer of the load from the bottom of the stays/frame to the side (iliac crest) of the hip bone. The waist belt has no structure to it... like two basset hound ears... and the pack bag itself seems disproportional. Fully loaded the 'volume' of the pack (for a small torso kid) is too wide... I feel it needs to be narrower/taller - Most kids are going to be 'on' trail and the ability to get prevent the weight from sitting low is challenging in a pack that is more of a fat sausage and less of a longer hot dog... if you get my drift.

Hi Leta,
I would be interested to hear what the designer has to say. We just got the Ace 50. I bought it for my 11 y\o for Boy Scouts. I bought the Osprey because I love my Atmos an actually love all of my Osprey Packs. Were just doing a short hike next week, but November will be a longer one. A lot of the scouts have these PACS, they use them on a 12 day trip out West. Will have to check the model, I know they are 50's. On Inspection, Pac looks great...guess we will have to see...
