I will start off by giving a disclaimer. I do not own the current model of this pack. I purchased this pack about 6 or 7 years ago, and just retired it in the last few months. Although I retired this pack, it was not because it had fallen apart. This is truly an amazing, durable, cost effective pack. I have easily put over 1,000 miles on my Kelty Coyote, and it still looks brand new. There are many pros to this pack, and very few cons. This pack has so many organizational features that many packs lack. You have access to the main compartment, you have several outside pockets which have mesh netting, and you have a huge interior. My only complaint would be the suspension system. I never knew what I was missing out on until I purchased my Gregory. Now that I know what a superior suspension system feels like, I would rate the Kelty Coyote suspension system as a 3 out of 5. All that to say, you will not find a better large pack in this price range. If you are new to backpacking or are on a budget, then this is the pack you want to buy. You will not be disappointed!
