Fits our 27 pound 15 month old really well. He can rest his head inside and fall asleep really easily on the pad by his chin. The visor that blocks the sun over him is a MUST especially if you're doing a lot in the summer. Multiple pockets and straps are very adjustable to accommodate all body types. Definitely recommend this to anyone w a little one that wants to be outdoors.

I've found the Futura 42 to be the perfect travel companion, small enough to use as a carry on or a daypack by using the compression straps yet big enough to hold essential gear and a couple of changes of clothing for multi day use. Awesome ventilation and suspension system. I have even made it my sole piece of luggage for European travel and day hiking when paired with half cube packing systems. You can find lighter bags that give up comfort and carrying features but the slight weight penalty is, in my mind, worth the payoff in comfort and durability.

Definitely worth the purchase if you lost or have an older model. Our model is 6 yrs old and the buttons fit. We had to had Velcro to it to attach at the bottom. Makes a huge difference for child comfort!

This is by far my favorite backpack I have ever owned, although I have had to be creative in a few areas to maximize its potential. Please note that it does NOT have side pockets for water bottles! This was just something I assumed it would have. I already had 2 "Black Diamond Oval Carabiner"'s + I invested in a couple more. This leads me to the part where I tell you I own those awesome "klean kanteen"'s with the loop lids, which the carabiners fit through, so thank goodness for all those GREAT carabiner loops! REALLY LOVE THEM! I usually carry 2 bottles of water at a time. Klean Kanteen makes a 12 oz kids size (I think it's meant for kids), but if you carry two, it's enough. Make sure you get the LOOP top though. Then there are the taller skinnier ones. I've tried those too. They're not bad, but they do make the bad a good bit heavier. I didn't mind, but when my mom hefted one, she freaked out and said I was crushing my spine. Use caution around parental figures. Actually, the ergonomics of the pack are so excellent, that I can cram a lot of weight into it and still be comfortable. Important to go to the Deuter site and follow directions for the order in which to cinch the straps, to keep it as light fitting as possible. I believe it's waist fist, then chest, then pull in the upper most part of backpack close to body. This works very well. I used to have problems with my lower back with my old backpack, but not with this one! I also recommend the "Deuter Rain Cover I" (comes in neon yellow, and fits a 25-30L bag). Don't know if you can get it on this site or not, but it's on Amazon Prime. Mine fits great! Oh, by the way, that synthetic flower in the picture (on the backpack) IS removable. I took mine off, but I'm keeping it because I think it's cute. My only gripe with the otherwise perfect rain cover is that it does not come in its own sack with string or loop that can be attached to a carabiner. I want to carry it on the outside for easy access. It does fold up into a pouch like pocket though, and doesn't take up much room, if you're happy to throw it in your backpack. I bought a "Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Sac Small" on Amazon Prime. Again, if they have that here on this website, buy it here. You can't beat free returns, but I think you'll be happy with it, even though it is a little large. I was able to fit the rain cover plus 3-4 of those cool slim Kleenex pocket pack tissue packs in there, for easy access. This Eagle Creek Sac is not open mesh (unlike on some of their packing cubes). It is lined with plastic so my Kleenex won't get wet. So, along with my 4 Black Diamond Oval Carabiners (also available on Amazon, and that is their full name), I have 2 "non-real" carabiners (the non-load-bearing, key chain type) from Dicks Sporting goods. The brand is Field and Stream. There are probably both better and worse ones out there, but these have served me fine for a very long time. I'm sure anything cute you find at your local outdoorsy shop will work. I slipped one of these hooks through the sturdy fabric tag of the Eagle Creek bag, to secure it to the outside of the gorgeous Deuter (love the color of this backpack SO much!!!) bag, hanging from one of those carabiner loops. Now, I'm no avid hiker. I use my backpack like a purse. They don't make purses big enough for me, and if they did, I would have one shoulder dragging on the ground. I use an internal organizational system of different sizes of Eagle Creek Packing Cubes (maybe available on Zappos? Look on Zappos first, but I'm sure you could find them on Amazon. I don't remember where I got mine. I used to use them in suitcases. So awesome!). I also use large fabric zipper pencil cases and large wristlets, too. The pack is narrow, but it is just tall enough to fit all my stuff. I am so happy with it! I keep my wallet and change purse in the upper zipper compartment, on top of everything, so when I'm grocery shopping, I don't have to open the whole pack. It's winter now, and I'm afraid to ride my bicycle in case of ice, but I have a taller backpack which interferes with my helmet. I tried this Deuter one on, got on my bike in my apt living room, and simulated every biking position I thought my head would be in, and I don't think this pack is going to interfere with my helmet! That's another think I'm excited about. So, I think I'm all set, and can use it for everything. I couldn't ask for more. It seems to me so well made, and the manufacturer guarantees against manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the backpack. I'm happy with that. I am proud to carry this pack. Oh, you can get a small flashlight to hang from your other small carabiner. There are so many great ones out there, and probably cooler ones than mine, but mine is impact resistant and water-proof, with a bottle opener (even though I don't drink anymore, but you might like it if that's something that interests you). It's very nice and bright! I like the yellow one, but it might also come in dark blue (it's on Amazon or you can get one at EMS if they don't have one at Zappos). It's the "Princeton Tec AMP 1L 45 Lumen Maxbright LED Mini Flashlight". Has a hole specifically designed for a carabiner! If I haven't exceeded my word limit by now, I'll be amazed. Thank you for reading, if you made it all the way through. I should add one more thing. I graduated to this 28 bag from a 22ishL bag (company to remain unnamed). The ergonomics of my former bag caused me back problems, but it fit a lot of stuff. I transferred all of the same things from that pack to this pack, and they are taking up just about the whole pack, just fitting a little more comfortably. I did not notice a TON of extra room, though. In the end, it is the perfect size for me! At first, I thought the shoulder straps were going to hurt, that they were too broad, but then I cinched them across my chest, and they were perfectly comfortable! Don't give up before cinching! I beat up on backpacks. My last one had mesh pockets, and I was always ripping them. This one is made to last. I am blissfully happy. OK, I'll try to stop writing now. Happy shopping. P.S. Shop Zappos for The North Face Women's Ultra Fastpack GoreTex Trail Sneaker! It's the best in the world! I have THREE pairs! Nobody paid me to write this. I am just in love with this shoe. Bye for now.

Got this backpack for my 6 year old nephew. He wanted a red backpack. He is about 42 inches tall, and this backpack was perfect for him. Not too big. It is well made, has great sturdy straps and snaps in well. Strap material is made so that it won't slide. Great backpack!

I bought this pack for my 7 year old son for a camping trip to Santa Rosa island. It fits him perfectly and it is customizable so it will continue to fit him as he grows. The pack is of high quality and packs his gear well. He packed his sleeping bag/pad, binoculars, clothes/rain coat and a few toys with room to spare. Awesome pack! Vogel State Park next!

We bought this bag for my three year old son and he has used it for two years and it looks new. He took it on the bus three days a week and it fit snow pants and boots in a pinch in the winter. During summer camp it has carried his lunch a change of clothes, small towel and whatever was the toy of the day. We have loved it, it has never overwhelmed him and is easy to spot.

This is an excellent pack, well-made, nice design, good price for the quality. It fits my medium-build 9 year old daughter well and with its adjustability, should serve her several more years. Highly recommend it!

Mixed feelings. It is great if you do allot of hiking in above 80 degree weather. However due to the back only having two touch points; the shoulder harness and waist belt (the mesh back does not touch), the backpack forms a weighted angle pressure point on your lower back. Combined that the waist belt is NOT flexible like the Kid Comfort 2 it is hard to get a good fit. You might be able to wear it for a total of 5-6 hours in one day, any more than that you will be in pain. With that said, for the money the Kid Comfort 2 is a better buy and probably much more comfortable if you are not doing warm weather hiking, otherwise this is your best option.

I was thinking this was a book bag...I was highly disappointed to see how small this bag actually was. Other than a tablet, what can you use this bag for?
