When it’s time to take your child on their first overnight backpacking trip, make sure they have Osprey’s Ace 38.

Although designed for youth, this pack has the same award-winning LightWire™ suspension as Osprey’s adult models. The mesh back panel and shoulder harness and mesh hip belt ensure all-day comfort.

The lid of this top-loading pack is fixed to keep weight to a minimum. There are two zippered compartments in the top lid to keep sundries organized. Two additional mesh side pockets and a front mesh pocket add more quick storage options. A separate sleeping bag compartment at the bottom of the main compartment provides security and compression for this bulky but critical item. Upper and lower side straps and a sewn daisy chain make this pack a truly trail worthy companion. And with the torso length adjustable up to 5”, this pack will last your child for many years of outdoors adventure.
