In this text, I present 8 best hiking backpacks for kids and youth in the range from 30 to 70 liters. All of them are with adjustable harness and hip belt, and suitable for hiking tours of various length dependent on volume.
So you have these 8 best hiking backpacks for kids and youth and I guess it is not easy to choose. The choice depends on the age of the kid, and on the purpose. You will not buy the largest of these packs for a 12 years old kid, it would be too big. But those up to 40 might work well, and in view of adjustment system, such packs will serve the kid for many years. But if this is a teenager of 15 or 16 and you search for a multi-day pack, then surely those bigger packs should be in your focus.
However, it seems that gear manufacturers have noticed that there is a gap in the market for more serious backpacks targeted at small children, many of whom have parents that are avid outdoors people and who want to take their kids along on hikes and start having them carry a small amount of their own gear – that pretty much describes me in a nutshell. Suddenly there was a really good selection of small scaled quality hiking backpacks for younger kids – excellent!
