How's this with swallowing bear cans?...
How's this with swallowing bear cans? ...not BEER cans... Is there room left over for a small tent, thin therm-o-rest and all the other necessary accoutrements and ancillary appurtenances of a 2-3 night camp-o-blast?
With this being an 80L pack, the S/M dimensions are 30 x 13 x 12 inches. Even if you carried the larger Bear Vault BV500 measuring 8.7 in diameter and 12.7 in long you will have more than enough room for everything for a 2-3 night trip.
Decent Beginner Pack
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
This is a good mid-sized pack - not too big, not too small. It works great for weekend treks but I wouldn't really want to use it on longer trips. There is no divider in the main compartment so you may need to to take a bit of extra care and planning in how you pack it. I'm also in agreement with Brandon. The detachable lid gave us a bit of trouble as well. That said, the pack is lightweight and comfortable to carry, which are obviously very important considerations! It's also pretty easy to adjust, even on the trail, so points for that. Overall, this is a decent pack for a good price.
Perfect pack for growing backpackers!

This is the perfect pack for growing backpackers due to the spine length adjustment. You just undo the velcro, and slide the top section to size. It hopefully will not be the last pack they ever buy, but it will last a lifetime! (if taken care of). I've had mine for 5 years now, and it is still going strong despite many weeklong+ treks, countless hundreds of miles, baggage handlers, trailers, loans to young backpackers, and many, many weekend trips. I have taken it on trips in the Holy Cross Wilderness, Maroon Bells, Philmont S.R., Ap Trail, canoeing, car trips, and weekend trips and it has performed flawlessly. Kelty's Customer Service is fantastic too! I wore a hole in it when I put plate weights in it for training hikes,(NOT recommended!) but I sent it in to Kelty and they patched and reinforced it for free! It is loaded with many nice features. The front access has a nice pouch on it with a felt pouch and nice divider in it. The full suspension system is good, with the best waist belt cinch I have found to date. The size is great. It is big enough for a weeklong trek(carrying all food), while not too big for weekend trips. The top pouch detaches and has a waistbelt, but it does take a minute to get off due to the cinch system(maybe 3 min, but definitely not 10). The side pouches on mine are just big enough for a nalgene. The mesh pockets will fit a nalgene, but they are not as secure as the zippered pockets. As a bonus, the main compartment also has a pouch for a water bladder, but that is the only divider in the main compartment. This is this is a great option for growing backpackers and scouts who will be doing a good bit of backpacking. (i.e. Philmont). If you are looking for a one pack quiver for a growing outdoorsperson, this is it!
Gets you around well
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Unfortunately, this isn't a mini van on your back. It's 80L. Fortunately, it's not a mini van on your back. It's pretty darn light, stuffs equipment well, and keeps you outside and happy. The suspension system is quite nicely adjustable so you can get quite specific and comfortable with this pack. I have used it all over Colorado in the summer and winter. It's not quite perfect for Osprey fans, but I'm not one to only buy Osprey. If this is on sale, you should absolutely buy it. Have fun adventuring, folks.
Kelty coyote 80 pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is my first internal frame pack, I bought this to replace my older external frame pack. I usually go on 4 to 10 day trips. I hike a maximum of 7 to 10 miles a day. I found the belt, back pad and straps comfortable. there is plenty of storage in the pockets. the only down points I can find is if you need to strap things to the outside of pack there is not as many options as some other packs, there is no internal divider, The rain cover needs to be purchased separately.
Kelty coyote pack review
This bag is fairly large for my needs, I mostly camp for a weekend so I usually have some extra room. The detachable lid is a pain to take off, I attempted to take it off and realized it would take atleast 10 minutes to get all the straps back thru the buckles to reattach. The pockets include front lid, back lid. Front pocket, Main pocket, 1 internal access thru the front pocket with mesh divider/zipper to access the bottom of the main pocket, 2 side and 2 hip.
