My son's Boy Scout Leader recommended a woman's backpack for my son's Philmont trip. At 13, the men's backpacks don't fit properly. We tried several different brands, including a few styles in the Kelty line, and settled on this one. It fits him well, the size is perfect, the price was right, and the color and design don't scream "woman's backpack!". I was immediately impressed with the quality of this item when it arrived. It looks to be extremely well made and durable. My son hasn't had the opportunity to use it yet, but we are both hopeful that he will get many years of use from this purchase.
My son is 4'9" tall, weighs 72 lbs. and this will be his 3rd yr to snowboard. For the past two winters he's been using a Burton 126cm Chopper. He'll be wearing a size 7 boot this winter and it's a little large for his board. What board and size would you suggest?? He mainly does freeride boarding but likes to try the park occasionally
