Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Design: backpack
Price Paid: $21.99

Good things first. My 9-year-old loves having her own hydration pack, and if that gets her to drink her water then it was worth the money. You can also pack lots of stuff into the pack along with a bike helmet. It has more room than your child can carry.

Now for the bad. The pack has no support or shape in the back which causes the bottom to roll or fold under. It will not lay flat against the back regardless of how tight or loose you set the shoulder straps. It also lacks either a sternum or waist strap.

I would not recommend this pack.
