    Great pack

      Perfect for my 8 yr old

      Fantastic little backpack!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This thing has a waist belt that fits my skinny first grader. It is difficult to find a good backpack with a waist belt that works like it should for kids. We loaded it up with his Sleeping bag, clothes, jacket , winter hat, flash light, frisbee, snacks( lots), and 1 liter of water in a bladder then hiked in 4 miles into our first camp; and then another 6 miles at 10,500 feet. He hikes up a pass of 1k vert! With all this gear it is tight, and doesn't have a lot of room for too much other gear. This will probably last him until he can fit into a jr. backpack 5th grade. This pack has a small enough belt to actually work like a belt proving the support he needs. When purchased my boy was 55 pounds and 4'2". We use it as his day pack as well, so we will get good use out of it.

      Best pack out there for kids under 10 years old!

      Wayne, Thank you for the review! I am glad to hear that you and your kiddo have been getting out adventuring! Zoe

      Great First Backpack

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I got this to introduce my youngest daughter to "backpacking" it fits enough to get her used to carrying some weight, but not enough to make it uncomfortable and turn her off from hiking. Great quality, as expected from Osprey.

      Great Starter Backpack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought this for my 8 year old to carry his gear on our family backpacking trip. He is only about 55 lbs so having this pack helped him hold to his weight capacity limit but had plenty of room for what he carried. He was able to carry his sleeping pad, some clothes, some water and some food. The pack was comfortable for him and there were zero complaints about the pack and the weight. This is certainly due to the comfort minded construction. If a backpack is uncomfortable this can shut down a child hiker and make a trip miserable for all. We had a great trip and having the right pack for my boy was an important part of that. I would highly recommend this pack.

      Helped make me the best uncle ever.

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought this for my little nephew to help him start his adventuring and he loves it! He still has to grow into it some, but he spent all christmas and the next day wearing it. We coupled this with a homemade plush campfire and s'mores set and it made for the best christmas ever. The build quality is just as good as any other Osprey Pack and I think it will last my nephew for a long time.

      David - thank you for the great review! I hope he enjoys his Jet for years to come!

      How to Measure:
      For best results, have someone take the measurement for you.
      Torso:
      Start at the iliac crest (the top of your hipbone that you can feel like a shelf on the side of your body). From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down. Make sure to keep your back straight while having the measurement taken.
      Hip:
      Measure around your hips, at your iliac crest, not your waist.
