Bought this for my 1yr old nephew for xmas. I thought it looked cute but on closer inspection I was really impressed with the quality. I own 3 Deuter packs and am very aware of their exceptional quality. This mini pack has the same bomber materials, straps and buckles as my big packs. I expect it will last through years of abuse by the little tyke. BTW Schmusebar means "cuddly bear" and this pack comes with one. Cool!
