Backpack Reviews

Since buying a great backpack is a worthwhile investment for every member of your family, we have been working hard to review a bunch of them! We hope these can be helpful in making the choice on the best pack for each of your family members.

As always, you can be sure that the reviews are comprehensive, honest, and exactly what we tell our family and friends. Feel free to leave your questions in the comments of this or individual review posts.

Backpacking Packs for Kids


  • Amelia lives with her husband and five young children outside of Jackson, WY in Grand Teton National Park. As a mom, she quickly learned that the secret to sanity was to spend more time outside where tantrums don't see quite so bad. Amelia started TMM in 2012 to help encourage all families (including her own) to get outside, no matter the weather. Due to the necessity of having to keep so many kids warm and happy, she has become an expert in kids' gear and loves being able to share it with others.
