got these for the Kids 2 years ago when they were 6 + 8 they've used them on many backpacking trips and they still fit well at 8 and 10 years old . the packs are small so it limits the amount of weight each child can carry which is good they are comfortable and both girls can carry their pack easily 4 miles. Usual load is a down blanket, sleeping pad, rain gear, fleece, cup, and water bottle. The kids usually add a toy or book, or something. All the straps are sized correctly for children.
