        Our Scout is younger and a bit smaller than his peers, but he is learning. The Kelty Pack is easy for him to use. We like the amount of space and the pockets.

          Not for Skinny Kids

          By Scouting Dad

          from New York

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Kelty Yukon 48 External Frame Pack:

          I bought this for my 11 year old son to take on scouting trips. It's a great pack if it fits you right, but my son has narrow hips and I can't tighten the hip belt enough to make the weight of the pack rest on his hips instead of just on his shoulders. I will have to return it and get either the Kelty Sanitas or an internal frame pack.

            Comments about Kelty Yukon 48 External Frame Pack:

            The Kelty Yukon 48 is a great adjustable pack for all but the most demanding hiker's. It was recommended by our Boy Scout Troop as a good starter pack. They were not kidding! It holds everything you would need for a few days in the woods or on the trail. Tons of storage inside and in the many pockets. The sturdy adjustable frame is great for strapping on a sleeping bag and tent. Well padded adjustable shoulder straps makes this pack a winner. I have already recommended it to several other people!

              Comments about Kelty Yukon 48 External Frame Pack:

              This is a great product for small people carrying heavy loads. I am 5'4'' and a petite female, and this is backpack is perfect for my size. However, it isn't best suited for really steep, narrow, and slippery trails, which is what I am hiking for a job these three months. I can hardly feel the weight (not that I carry much), but tend to get caught on branches or lose my balance with this pack. I still love it because of the fit and the look, but think it would be best used on clearer, wider trails.

                Having been a boy scout leader for over 10 years with a troop that does extensive backpacking, there really isn't another pack out there that fits the younger scouts (11-13 years old) as well as this one. It is very durable and can be adjusted as the boy grows. Tremendous value for the price!

                        Bought this pack a year ago for a then 7 year old. Wanted to get some use out of it before reviewing it. I have nothing but good to say about it. The adjustment range is amazing, it will adjust down small enough for my 60 pound 8 year old, bigger for my wife and even bigger to fit me. Now that's adjustment. You can't beat an external frame for summer heat either. Loads easy, carries well and is comfortable. This pack will fit my little guy a long time and since its a Kelty I know it will last.

                            The hold open bar arrives unassembled. To assemble the hold open bar; pull the bar to the front of the pack. The bar's ends will kick to the back of the pack closest to the shoulder straps. Where the bar ends touch the pack bag run your finger along the seam and you will find a button hole. Insert the bar ends into the button holes. As the bar ends emerge through the pack bag you will notice clevis pins closely associated with the bar end location. Remove the securing ring or bar from the pin and back the pin out so that you can secure the bar between the frame and the pack bag. Reinstall the pin and secure. The hold open bar is not installed.
