Delivering "adult" performance in a size appropriate for young backpackers, the Deuter Fox 30 Youth internal frame pack is built for backcountry adventure. Its 30 liter capacity equips the Fox 30 Youth pack for long day hikes or overnight trips.
The Fox 30 Youth pack utilizes Deuter's Alpine Back System. Comprised of two vertical padded foam strips and an internal framesheet, the Alpine Back System offers stability and comfort while providing a "chimney" at the spinal column for ventilation. Anatomically contoured shoulder straps enhance flexibility, comfort and precision fit. Further enhancing fit and allowing for the growth of young backpackers, Deuter's Vari-Quick harness system adjusts easily to accommodate torsos ranging from 10"-17" in length. Ventilated pads in the back, shoulder straps and hipbelt help to keep you cool and comfortable on your adventures. Load-lifter straps and a sternum strap work in tandem with the shoulder and lumbar padding to effectively distribute weight throughout the pack, further ensuring stability and comfort.
A top loading main compartment, a bottom entry compartment, and side bellows pockets allow for organization and separation of wet and dry gear. A zippered lid pocket and elastic side pockets provide additional places to store and organize gear.
Other special features of the Fox 30 Youth include an ice axe loop, trekking pole loops, and a sternum strap buckle that doubles as a safety whistle. A lined sleeve in the main compartment, and built-in tube exit points combine to make the Fox 30 Youth backpack hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

Real Customer Reviews
- A good all around Pack for kids over 50 pounds
Likes: This is a very light pack, that has some good features. I like the ample storage, ease of access, built in whistle, and overall design. I bought two of these for my twin girls.
Dislikes: It's not entirely comfortable. My kids were a bit too small for this pack, but with 8-year-old petite twin girls, I knew it would be difficult to find a pack that would fit well, and be small enough for extended backpacking trips. I kept the wieght for them low, only 8-9 pounds for each of them. They complained that the shoulder straps hurt, and the hip belt was too loose, even when synced all the way. This pack could use more padding around the hips and waist and have more adjustability, but I can't blame it all on the design, I think once the girls grow into these packs, they will be a good companion for the next few years.
- Good build, lacking some desired features
Likes: Good build quality, looks like it would last a long time. Lifetime warranty. Nice thick daisy chain loops to lash gear. Good placement of compression straps. Decent amount of adjustability.
Dislikes: No large stretch-mesh pocket on the front of the pack. No pockets on hip belt. No dedicated hydration bladder sleeve.
