I think the size is perfect, my 3 year old son loves wearing it. We’ve had it a little over a month, and it’s holding up fairly well with daily wear. The chest clip tore off a couple weeks ago. I think the elastic was a bad choice as it’s a major stress point and a weak textile. Just my opinion, whatever it’s worth. A couple more suggestions: Please make one/both of the bottle holders insulated to keep bottles cold/hot. My son has a few different Nalgene, Zack, etc. reusable water bottles that won’t fit in the cup holder pockets. I wish there was a carabiner loop/hook and a dedicated soft/fleece lined pocket for his sunglasses. I think it would be 5 stars with the above changes. **Also wish you offered Embroidered Velcro Name patches or an internal stitched in name tag like his North face jackets, so it didn’t get lost or stolen at school/daycare. Would be another good way to generate revenue in my opinion. I would pay $5-10 extra if it was sewn on; but in keeps with your whole military theme, Velcro patches would be the easiest solution.
I bought this for my daughter when she was around 1. Her dad loves tactical gear and has some tactical backpacks. He was amazed at how well made it is and the attention to detail. My daughter is now almost 2 and we take her backpack everywhere. We usually keep a diaper and change of clothes in it. A water bottle clipped to the outside, sunglasses in the side pocket and other random things she takes along. She loves to wear it and buckle it. It’s a great size for her. I wish they would make one a bit bigger for when she gets older though. The only issue we had was the bungee cord fraying at the end. I made her 2 little “morale patches” to put on the Velcro and I’ll make more as she grows and her interests change. (She has a sparkly heart and cupcake now). Overall great purchase. It would be a great gift for any expecting parents who are in to tactical stuff.
