Bought the pink bag for my 10 year old daughter who had to have it once she saw it and it looked just like mine. Now she is asking to go hiking. Keeps her well hydrated with room to carry her own snacks. I would highly recommend this pack to anyone, particularly towards parents with kids who don't want to bog the kiddos down with a heavier 70 or 100oz bulkier pack. You won't be disappointed with the MULE.
we bought this for our kids so they can carry their own water. they love it and it has about 1/2 the size bladder as the big ones so its much easier to carry. our kids our 5 7 and 9 they all carry it no problem. also they love to be able to carry their own snacks or whatever they find on the trail. enjoy.
"Could be used for smaller people as well..."
When I got the M.U.L.E. for myself my wife wanted a camelbak as well. Granted, she is a full grown adult, she is only 4'10". The regular sized camelbaks seemed too big on her. We found the mini M.U.L.E. and she loved it. Bladder isn't as big but it suffices for the type of hikes we go on, typically Mount Monadnock. Hers however does not have the flames on it, nor any design, a little too childish. But hey, it is meant for kids... as are most of her shoes. Point being if you are a little on the small side and want a camelbak, don't just deny yourself one because you cant find one your size, here it is.
