Deuter Fox 30
Price Paid: $70
Great pack. My 9 y/o daughter used this pack on a three day hike through the Adirondacks. Although I was cautious of the total weight, the smaller size prevents overloading a child.
Well padded hip belt and shoulder straps. Hydration reservoir pocket was a nice touch. My daughter loved that it was like mine.
Lots of adjustments for sizing the pack, which was one of the reasons I chose it. The pack can grow with a child. We did have the hip belt as tight as it would go on our trip. Luckily it fit.
A scaled down version of a 'real' backpack. It works great!

Contoured, padded shoulder straps are lined with 3D air-mesh for breathability and feature stabilizer straps for ideal positioning of pack. Soft hip pads and hipbelt wrap body, stabilizing and controlling lateral movements of pack while on the go. Top-loading main compartment has plenty of room for an overnight or lightweight weekend trip. 2 lid pockets and side bellows pockets store often-accessed gear such as headlamp, baseball hat, sunscreen, bug repellent, found treasures and more. Hydration-compatible design features reservoir pocket and drink tube exit port for on-the-go hydration (reservoir sold separately). 2 side mesh pockets are roomy enough for water bottles and snacks. Bottom zippered compartment separates a sleeping bag or dirty clothes.
