Among my favorite places to backpack is Isle Royale NP. I love the landscape, the views, the wildlife and the climate. I like to hike Isle Royale. Alas, It has been 18 years since I was last able to hike there. Long story short, the packs were too heavy, the girlfriend had a bad trip but she married me anyway, the ensuing kids made a return unfeasible. UNTIL NOW!!!
Lighter weight gear, an astounding growth spurt in the youngest of my 2 boys and a concession that we can stay in the lodge 1 night have swayed the wife.
My youngest is 9 years old, ~ 75 lbs and 54 inches. I am looking for suggestions for a backpack for him. I was hoping to get something with a hip belt that might be adjustable for a couple years.
Thanks for your suggestions.
