Watch him tear down the trail.
Let him carry his own hiking essentials in the Osprey Kids' Jet 18 Backpack.

The edgeless shoulder straps and mesh waist belt reduce chafing on the really long trails. This traditional top loader also features an external sleeve for a hydration reservoir, dual side pockets for water bottles, zippered pockets at front and the lid, and a large stash pocket for layers.

Great Starter Backpack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this for my 8 year old to carry his gear on our family backpacking trip. He is only about 55 lbs so having this pack helped him hold to his weight capacity limit but had plenty of room for what he carried. He was able to carry his sleeping pad, some clothes, some water and some food. The pack was comfortable for him and there were zero complaints about the pack and the weight. This is certainly due to the comfort minded construction. If a backpack is uncomfortable this can shut down a child hiker and make a trip miserable for all. We had a great trip and having the right pack for my boy was an important part of that. I would highly recommend this pack.
Helped make me the best uncle ever.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought this for my little nephew to help him start his adventuring and he loves it! He still has to grow into it some, but he spent all christmas and the next day wearing it. We coupled this with a homemade plush campfire and s'mores set and it made for the best christmas ever. The build quality is just as good as any other Osprey Pack and I think it will last my nephew for a long time.
