My daughter began trekking the age of 7~8 when there were no options but to use adult trekking bag, not so suitable & attractive, which is pretty old story. Couple of months back I bought a nice small, cute looking, sturdy hiking backpack for my friends son who is of similar age (7~8 years) and rescently began his trekking hobby …wanted to share the experience with you …
I bought it from Decathlon store in Pune during my regular store visit … I loved this Tiny & Lightweight, made from durable Nylon, Tear & Scratch resistant 10 Liter Backpack and immediately decided to pick it up from the small aspiring trekker.
When I gifted him the backpack .. & wow look at his joyful face to get his own backpack … You know it was looking so nice on his back … So we immediately did a small and later big trek with him, believe me it was awesome experience for him (and me too) … Like he was feeling independent & proud to be on his own 🙂 and so as me and my friend .. Also everyone in the group liked it much … The backpack was comfortable too due to Thicken padded shoulder straps (Shows careful design as a children backpack)
Due to lack of time although I bought it from local Decathlon store, issue with that is they have only Gray colur backpack available for sale, However if you go for online buying you have many more attractive colour options available, so I will prefer my next backpack buy online from reliable stores like Amazon.
