Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

CamelBak Mini M.U.L.E. 1.5L Hydration Pack - Kids'

(1/1)

The construction of the Mule is good and the Mule bladder is durable, but it comes down to the ease of use of the product that I'll give my recommendation to Osprey Moki. The packs are comparably priced, but the value is with the Osprey because they also have a lifetime warranty. The only advantage of the Mule for kids IMHO is the nozzle tip for kids.

Hiking

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

CamelBak Mini M.U.L.E. 1.5L Hydration Pack - Kids'

(1/2)

The CamelBak was perfect for him! It held more than enough water for him with room for a few snacks perfect for the hikes we did. He loved having his own water and snacks accessible. I loved not having to stop and give him snacks and water. Win-win! The only issue is the bite valve broke by the end of the trip because he chewed through it

*sigh* Other than that, the pack was perfect! I will definitely buy another one next summer for my middle son.

Size

CamelBak Mini M.U.L.E. 1.5L Hydration Pack - Kids'

(1/2)

Size and Fit According to Camelbak, the Mini MULE is designed to fit kids with torsos 12″ to 16″, but we have successfully used them for kids with torsos as short as 8″.  Recommended torso lengths are provided to prevent the pack from being too long on the child. A pack that is too long will hang down over the child’s bum, causing the pack to bounce around when walking or hiking.  As a result, with kids it’s important to purchase a child-size pack, such as the mini MULE, in order to prevent the pack from being too long and hanging down too far below their waist

Strap

CamelBak Mini M.U.L.E. 1.5L Hydration Pack - Kids'

(1/1)

Camelbak’s smallest women’s pack, the Charm, is recommended for torso lengths ranging from 15″ to 21″, and is a great solution for tweens who are too big for the Mini MULE, but aren’t quite ready for a full-size adult pack. As a women’s pack, the Charm actually isn’t much longer than the Mini MULE, but the shoulder straps are a lot wider, making the pack much more comfortable to wear for older riders. 13-year-old with 17″ Torso wearing Camelbak Mini MULE and Camelbak Charm Chest Strap The length and adjustability of the chest strap on kids’ youth packs is also worth noting. The chest strap on the Camelbak Mini MULE is longer (so it doesn’t cinch up as tight) and also doesn’t slide up as high as the chest strap on the similarly sized Osprey Moki
