Thanks to Osprey, 8 is the new 16

Used to be that kids dreamed of turning 16 - that great age when you got a license and maybe an old beater car to call your own. But now there is a new rite of passage that will have kids longing to turn 8 - their first Osprey backpack. For spring '08 Osprey is introducing a new youth line called the Sprint Series. The three packs, Ace, Jib and Imp, continue Osprey's proud legacy of deluxe custom fit packs with all the great features Osprey is known for. With about five inches of movement in the harness, these packs will provide years of use - even if your kids grow faster than weeds. Which they will. And a screened outlining of the Leave No Trace principles in every pack will ensure they don't grow up to be the kind of backpackers you wish would just stay home.
