After hearing the refrain of take me, take me, take me for countless years, you've relented but with the caveat that your son or daughter carries his or her own load. Luckily, Deuter's Climber Backpack is designed for kids who get out and get dirty. Air channeled foam strips on the back and adjustment straps reduce the likelihood you'll hear but it's too hot and my shoulders hurt. Gear loops let your pint sized explorer bring all the tools of the trade, and side mesh pockets provide easy access for water bottles. Whether you're hiking or climbing or snowshoeing, bring your kids along and enjoy not carrying their gear.
