Great pack for adults too, don't worry about the fit.

  • Summary: Great pack for adults too, don't worry about the fit. Smaller capacity than the Trekker, but works well for shorter range trips. 2-3 day backpacking trips are just fine with this 50L pack, longer if you know what you're doing.
  • Pros: Quality of materials, Very comfortable, Easily packable, Lightweight frame
  • Cons: No zipper for separating the sleeping bag compartment, it's permanent, No included rain cover, Would like to see hitch pins or something instead of split rings

  • Excerpt: I bought this pack from a friend and I went all the way with it. I'm 14 and a scout who took this bag on a 90 mile 10 day trip plus four 20-30 mile training hikes. This pack suited me well and works good with beginners and old timers. I packed all my gear and it did very well with weight distribution.

I am 24 and a medium sized individual at 5'11" 155lbs.

  • Excerpt: I am 24 and a medium sized individual at 5'11" 155lbs. This pack is not just for kids or teens. I like mine a lot. It fits me snuggly and carries weigt well. I think it may be too large for children though, it is a large pack especially when it is fully extended.
