Really not bad at all

    I had been looking for a reasonably price pack for a while and I came across this one..I just took it on an overnight packed to the gills to test it out and I have to say I'm really impressed..Ive used other packs that cost way more from other stores and I ended up with shoulder pain and back pain...well the Lakota was awesome..there are so many cinch straps that you can pretty much mold the pack to your back and it feels totally safe, and balanced. I just HAPPEN to be from the Lakota tribe (funny how that worked out) lol...great pack for the price..I'm really floored more people haven't bought far so good for me..ill be going out some more this weekend with it packed till the gills...cant wait!

    Looks cool, but unimpressed w/design

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    For the price tag, I was not impressed by the quality of the arm straps. I ordered a small, because I have a 17" torso, but the distance between the shoulder straps at the top of the pack was too narrow for my neck which caused excessive rubbing upon trying the pack on -- I knew this would cause chaffing after only a few hours on the trail. One other thing that I did not like was how the fabric around the backpad for the hip straps was bunched up. To me, this just showed how Kelty did not put as much effort as they could have in the overall design. For the most part, the rest of the pack is well-built and the overall design is beautiful, but customers can get a MUCH better-fitting pack for the same price tag.

    Right now this pack is for $169.99 at...

    Right now this pack is for $169.99 at will you guys match their price?

    I've actually had some experience with this and I have to say that will price match as long as it is the same exact item. They helped me greatly on my last order. Thank you very much!
