Deuter Junior Backpack

Dueter Packs | Back to School Gear

Backpacks are a necessary for school and, with kids having having to lug around more school supplies than I carry to work, it is crucial for them to have a good packpack. Let’s face it, we aren’t going to to run in cheap shoes, hike with a cheap pack or ride a department store bike, so why should your kids use gear that isn’t fit? A good pack is also great fun when having adventures in the playground, going for a swim in the lake or heading out into the mountains. The Junior from Deuter, has all the grown up features with its fresh new design and is for children aged 5 and above. With new, playful colors, there is something to make the eyes of any girl or boy light up. Best of all it is built with the same quality and design as all Deuter packs including flexible aluminum stays, contoured back and anatomically formed shoulder straps. It retails for $39.00, weighs in under 1lb and is able to hold 1100 cubic inches of gear or school supplies. The Deuter Junior gets an A+.
