Got it for my 7yo daughter who does a lot of camping with beavers She was very impressed with all the pockets and space, she managed to get all her kit in, including sleeping bag and wellies Looks a bit big on her - but it’s recommended for older kids - so no issues with that, seems quite decent quality I (5’2”) tried it on and felt it very comfortable

How is backpack volume measured?

The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardized method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in liters.
