When it’s time to take your child on their first overnight backpacking trip, make sure they have Osprey’s Ace 38.
Although designed for youth ages 10 to 17, this pack has the same award-winning LightWire™ suspension as Osprey’s adult models. The mesh back panel and shoulder harness and mesh hip belt ensure all-day comfort.
The lid of this top-loading pack is fixed to keep weight to a minimum. There are two zippered compartments in the top lid to keep sundries organized. Two additional mesh side pockets and a front mesh pocket add more quick storage options. A separate sleeping bag compartment at the bottom of the main compartment provides security and compression for this bulky but critical item. Upper and lower side straps and a sewn daisy chain make this pack a truly trail worthy companion. And with the torso length adjustable up to 5”, this pack will last your child for many years of outdoors adventure. Please note that children should not carry more than 15-20% of their body weight.
