    • If he likes the sleeping bag and it fits try getting a sleeping bag liner to help when its colder. You should be able to to get one for $10-$15 if you shop around.  Most are advertised as comfortable up to 50 degrees alone and add 15 degrees when added to another sleeping bag.  I sleep in my fleece liner all summer  on top of my normal sleeping bag.
    • Kudos to you, @Eagle94-A1! Keep thinking like a proton and stay positive! 🙂
    • The people at REI tend to be very helpful and knowledgeable.   REI carries a number of really good internal frame backpacks that are fully adjustable, and can grow with your child.  I bought one last spring for my nephew's first Boy Scout backpacking trip, that after adjustments will last him for years. As for sleeping bags, a lot of that would depend on where you are located.  We have 2, a summer weight bag that is very light and compact, and one that is rated to 10 degrees for those rare cold Jan/Feb nights here in FL. (coldest night in it this year was 27)

Backpacks are even worse, they grow out of those things so fast. Our scouts started selling their pack (cheap) to newer scouts so they could go up to the next step, which is typically an internal frame packs. New scouts do better with externals.  Unless you have the funds and just enjoy getting that kind of stuff. And hey, I understand. Mrs Barry (and CPA) is telling me one of the motorcycles has got to go. I'm not sure why. Barry
