Delivering "adult" performance in a size appropriate for young backpackers, the Deuter Fox 40 Youth internal frame pack is built for overnight or weekend backpacking trips.
The pack utilizes Deuter's Alpine Back System. Comprised of two vertical padded foam strips and an internal framesheet, the suspension 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 11"-18" 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 include an ice axe loop, trekking pole loops, daisy chain gear attachment points, 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 pack hydration system compatible (system sold separately).

Real Customer Reviews
- For anyone who needs adjustability
Likes: Fits smaller humans
Dislikes: None so far
- Perfect for my 8 year old
Likes: The waist pocket is stretchy, the side access pocket is convenient, I especially like the bottom main compartment and the fact that you can open it to combine the space. The interior hood compartment is well designed. Very sturdy and exactly what I expect from Deuter. The size adjustment ensures my scout will get years of use out of it.
Dislikes: I do not have any at this time
