Our Osprey Ace and Jet rucksacks are perfect for children – up to early teens – tackling their first multi-day walk.
The Ace 50 and Ace 38 are designed for youngsters (roughly ages 8–14), and they’re also perfect for small, slender adults who are less endowed in the hip department. An adjustable harness (with about 12cm movement) and waist belt designed for narrow hips make the difference. Other than that, these are fully featured walkers’ packs. The 50 has the same carrying capacity – and same ultralight weight – as our regular adult models. The 38 is lighter still – just a gram or so over 1kg.
If you’re 8–10 the 38L is probably best; older you’ll be good to go with the 50L. (For Ian’s advice on sizing, weight and more, see the tab at the bottom of the page.)
The Jet 18 is lighter yet – about 550g – and the ideal starter pack for walkers in the 5–8 year old age range. Like the Ace range, it has many technical features in common with adult packs, including a waistbelt and chest strap, water bottle pockets and a waterproof liner.
