Mountainsmith Youth Scout External-Frame Backpack Pinon Green
The Mountainsmith Youth Scout External-Frame Backpack Pinon Green is lightweight and durable. It has a nice external frame, and enough pockets to separate items, but not so many that you forget where you put stuff. There are 2 external pockets on the left side and one long external pocket on the right, plus the bigger, square external pocket on the back. There is also a pocket on the top flap. A camelback fit perfectly in this pocket, and the zipper stayed closed even with the drinking hose extending out. The sleeping bag sling is very handy. This pack is really roomy. You can pack this backpack with al required gear; clothes, mess kit, first aid kit, survival kit, compass, toilet paper, full body rain suit, sleeping bag, sleeping pad. Then you can add the food and a tent - and there is still room to spare! The waist/hip band is highly adjustable. You can also adjust it up or down on the pack frame, depending on the height of the wearer. This pack adjusts at the chest, too.
