All the features of an adult backpacking pack in a smaller size. The padded hipbelt and shoulder straps let the younger members of the family comfortably carry their own gear on long weekends in the backcountry. The sleeping bag compartment at the bottom has its own zipper, so they can quickly set up their bed and get back to exploring. Plenty of pockets hold extra layers, snacks, water bottles and quick-access raingear, and the integrated raincover means they'll never forget this crucial piece of protection. Plus, the adjustable torso and hipbelt mean the Ace can keep up with annual growth spurts.
