Our family loves to take day hikes and we noticed that my husband was always stuck carrying his pack with the kid's water bottles, sweatshirts and food. After climbing Blue mountain in the Adirondacks we decided that our 6 year old needed her own pack. After a lot of research, we decided on the Osprey Jet 12 for her. We purchased a 2 liter camelback to go with it. She loves her pack and I love that she is drinking and staying hydrated on our hikes. It is big enough for an extra layer, a snack and a few Barbie dolls that sometimes come along. I expect she will be able to use it for many years to come and be able to pass it down to her younger brother.
