Would like to start packing very light loads with my yearling boys. My concern is that the packs I buy will not fit them very long. Is there a pack that will be useful later or is there a market for used juvenile sized packs?
Joe, this is the age old question. My feelings are that buying packs for juveniles is a waste of money. They can't carry much anyway and by a year old or so they can fit into a standard saddle. Having something on their back isn't a necessary part of their training early on so my general recomendation is to take them hiking as often as possible and when they reach 125lbs or so then invest in a regular saddle and you are good to go.
