Thanks to the Kelty Sanitas 34 Kids external frame pack, young adventurers can enjoy “adult” performance in youth-friendly dimensions. The pack offers adjustability to cover a wide range of torso sizes (9”-14”), has 2050 cubic inches of storage capacity, and provides rugged, reliable performance.
A rigid aluminum frame provides excellent stability and support. In fact, if you're carrying heavy loads over well-maintained trails and even terrain, it's hard to beat an external frame pack. However, it is important to remember that the rigidity of an external frame can hamper flexibility for off-trail scrambling. The pack's ventilated backpanel, adjustable dual-density waistbelt, and padded shoulder straps work together to further enhance fit. Belt stabilizer straps help to transfer weight onto the hips. An adjustable sternum strap fine tunes the positioning of the shoulder straps across the chest to prevent chafing under the arms.
Equipped with many zippered pockets, the Sanitas 34 Kids pack allows you to separate and organize gear while providing quick and easy access to whatever you might need while on the trail. An internal "hold-open" bar keeps the top-loading main packbag open, making it easier to pack your gear.
Other features found on the Sanitas 34 Kids pack include a lid pocket, zippered side pockets, a mesh water bottle pocket, a daisy chain attachment system, lash points, and an ice-axe loop. A lined internal sleeve makes the pack hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great pack for growing kids
Likes: This pack has enough volume and adjustment to allow young kids to enjoy backpacking without torturing them. I showed my daughters (9 and 11) how to calculate their loads, pack the bags, adjust, fit, and shoulder the packs and they completed a 12 mile backpack trip with me with no problems or sore spots. I believe that's a good testament to the pack since they were both very green backpackers.
Dislikes: The frame does hinder head movement, when looking up on my smallest daughter.
