Product Highlights

Built to address the needs of younger hikers, the Mountainsmith Youth Scout external frame backpack provides 2356 cubic inches of internal capacity, external storage options and a broad range of fit adjustability.

A rugged, lightweight external aluminum frame allows the Youth Scout to haul heavy loads. A padded waistbelt and cushioned shoulder straps further enhance carrying comfort. An adjustable sternum strap, load lifter straps and other points of adjustment ensure a proper fit. The frame can be extended to "grow" with your aspiring backpacker and can accommodate torsos ranging from 13"-17" in length.

The Youth Scout's large main compartment is reached through a top-loading access point that is tucked under a large hood. The hood includes a zippered compartment that's ideal for stowing maps or a rain cover (sold separately). In addition, zippered side pockets enable you to organize gear. A mesh sling located beneath the main packbag allows you to carry sleeping bags that may not fit inside the Youth Scout

Other features on the Youth Scout include a cord-locked elastic attachment system and webbed daisy-chain attachment points. Providing valuable assistance in emergency situations, the buckle on the sternum strap doubles as a safety whistle.
