MEC Escapade Backpack - Youths

Open up longer day trips and overnighters to your kids and tweens. Here’s a real backpack that’s reduced in size but not features. An internal frame ensures effective weight transfer to the hips. The compression strap and back panel system squeezes bulky loads down to a manageable volume and a big adjustment range lets the Escapade grow with your child as they head off to summer camp and further adventures.
