Osprey Jib 35
Where to Buy
The Sprint Series brings Osprey’s legacy of deluxe custom fit to youth backpacks, and was designed with the understanding that a child’s body dimensions, proportions, and biomechanical properties are markedly different than those of an adult. Packs provide the best carry of any youth packs on the market by combining ergonomically correct fit, technical features tailor-made for youth, and Osprey’s signature design, quality, customization and durability.
Features: five inches of torso adjustability to grow with your child; peripheral aluminum frame with rigid foam framesheet; Osprey’s AirScape ventilated foam backpanel; perforated EVA harness with mesh outer; size adjustable foam hipbelt with spacer mesh outer; built-in raincover; hydration compatible; two organizational pockets in the top lid; stretch nylon mesh front and side pockets; dual daisy chains; mesh harness pocket; retractable zippered sleeping bag compartment and single ice axe attachment on the Ace and Jib

It's never too early to start good habits - encourage your children to appreciate backpacking with the Osprey Jib. Besides being comfortable to carry, the Jib has kid inspired graphics, 10 essentials for a trip list, and 7 principles of leave no trace printed on the bag.
Not just a scaled-down adult pack, the Jib 35 pack from Osprey was designed to fit children's dimensions and proportions-and it grows with them! Fits a variety of backs, thanks to its generous torso-length adjustment: just rip it, adjust it and stick it. Pack is sized to fit kids approximately 10 to 14 years old. To ensure a healthy and comfortable carry, loaded pack should not be more than 15 to 20 percent of child's body weight. AirScape backpanel features three sections of ridged foam and a central air chimney for increased ventilation. Running down the sidewall, peripheral rods anchor to load-lifter straps and hipbelt, actively transferring load and resisting sag. Top-loading design gives you easy access to the pack's contents; two zippered pockets in lid let you stash maps and small items. ErgoPull hipbelt closure provides extra cinching leverage-drawing tension along top and bottom, not through the center-relieving hipbone pressure. Zippered pockets on hipbelt let you stash small essentials, such as a digital camera, snacks, lipbalm and sunblock. Front stretch pocket is ideal for stowing jacket, hat and other often-used essentials. Large stretch-woven side pockets hold your water bottles and organize other small gear items. Hydration-compatible design features reservoir sleeve and a drink tube exit port for on-the-go hydration (reservoir sold separately). Bottom of pack features a small zippered compartment to hold built-in raincover, which is tethered for security. Backpacker April '09 declares that the Osprey Jib 35 "represents a sea change in comfort, features and durability among youth backpacks.".
It's your kid's first day of hiking, so get him the comfortable, supportive Osprey Jib 35 Youth Backpack to ensure he has a great time. This miniature-sized pack fits kids from 10-14 years old (13-16in back length) and includes many of the features of Osprey's adult models. The trampoline-style back panel lets air flow freely to keep your kid cool and eliminates pressure points from a less-than-dialed packing technique. The Jib 35 Backpack's 2100cu inch main compartment and several pockets hold just the right amount of necessities for those first trips on which your kid wants to carry his own gear for an overnight trip.
