Let's face it: kids want to be like their parents. They watch you using the cool hydration products on the trail and they want their own. Camelbak has answered that call with the Scout.
At 11 liters for cargo and 1.5 liters for water, this pack is should be all every kid needs for a long day hike. It fits my tiny five year old as well as my tall nine year old. They've used it on hikes and even all day 400' rock climbs.
You'll find generous space for an extra jacket and snacks and a cool see-through pocket on the front for all the cool things they'll find on the trail.
