You'd be hard pressed to find a better first backpacking pack for your young hiker than the Gregory Kids' 3051cu in Wander 50 Backpack. While it's designed to fit users aged 10 to 18, the Wander boasts a full range of features and technology that is found in adult packs. A VersaFit adjustable suspension system keeps the fit customizable for years to come, while the lightweight, load bearing Wishbone Wire internal frame distributes weight equally for a comfortable carry, no matter where you're hiking. The classic top loading design with cinch closure and compression lid keeps everything safe and secure through your trek, while the oversized U zipper main compartment access delivers insanely easy packing and unpacking. The hydration sleeve and dual mesh water bottle pockets give the option for an easy to reach drink, and multiple zippered pockets neatly stash a compass, snacks, trail maps and extra layers. A fishing rod attachment lets your kid bring along his or her rod or hiking pole, and external gear loops attach some more awkwardly shaped items.
