- Perfect for my 8 year old son
Likes: Very well sized for the age range that it is intended. Materials are on par with other Mountainsmith products that I have purchased, excellent and well built. Great value as its last years model. Lots of pockets which is getting harder to find in internal fame packs, but I find worth the added weight, particularly for kids that like organization and want easy, quick access to items. My son is a Cub Scout now and I expect this will serve him well into Boy Scouts. We are going to take a trip this spring and I will review again once we have field tested it.
Likes: Bought this pack for my son who is in the boy scouts. After looking at many of the packs available, this one seemed to combine the best dimensions, carrying capability, weight limits, and flexibility of storage solutions. Seems very well made and he has already been commenting on the comfort. Great product.
