Delivering youth-friendly fit and adult-sized performance, the Gregory Wander 50 Youth backpack caters to growing adventurers, offering maximum fit adjustability, load-hauling capability and over 3000 cubic inches of storage capacity.
Comprised of a lightweight, sturdy steel wire frame and a harness and waistbelt that are directly integrated into the frame to maximize load support, the VersaFit Suspension effectively transfers load to the hips. Broad adjustability in the backpanel and the waistbelt accommodate the growth of your young backpacker. Aero-mesh construction on the backpanel, shoulder straps and waistbelt helps to wick moisture to help keep hikers cool. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps further enhance the fit of the Wander 50 Youth pack and ensure the stability of your load while allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
The main compartment of the Wander 50 Youth pack has top loading access and, in addition, a large, U-shaped front zipper enables you to quickly put hands on gear and or clothes without having to dump out the entire contents of your pack. Side and bottom compression straps ensure that the contents of the pack remain safely in place. Other storage options include a zippered top lid pocket and a large zippered front pocket. Side stretch mesh pockets are ideal for water bottles.
Other features found on the Wander 50 Youth pack include ice axe/trekking pole attachment points, daisy-chain gear lash points and an integrated raincover. An internal sleeve and built-in pass-throughs make the pack hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great pack for a growing kid
Likes: I bought this pack for my 10 year old nephew. I wanted a pack with an adjustable torso length and adjustable hip belt so he could grow with it until he quits growing. This pack has both. The only other pack I knew about that had those 2 features was the Osprey Ace 50. We ended up with this pack over the Osprey because it fit better. That will not necessarily be the same result for your kid. The pack’s hydration bladder area is actually a day/summit pack that can be removed, which is nice. Compartments other than the main one include the brain on the top and the front has a compartment, which is also where the rain cover is located.
Dislikes: The pack does not have a sleeping bag compartment (while the Osprey does), but it makes up for it by having a panel loading option in addition to its top opening. Could be lighter.
