Description

All the pack you need for a long trip in the hills.

The Kelty Coyote Backpack combines a whole lot of space, plenty of pockets, and a Cloudlock II suspension system for a price that leaves you money for new boots. A vented waist-belt and wicking back panel help you stay cool even during summer’s scorching heat. While this Kelty backpack only weighs an ounce over five pounds, it can be trimmed down further by removing the waist belt and lid. If going light isn’t your thing, you’ll really like the 78L of cargo area and dual aluminum frame stays

great work horse

this pack is a great work horse. it's in the range where you can do a lot with it. a shorter trip you may want a smaller pack. a longer winter trip you may want a bigger pack.

Not for Expeditions

I used this pack for a 3 week backpacking trip in on the superior hiking trail and it worked great when only loaded with 40lbs or less. I then took it on several more weekend and weeklong trips and it seemed fine aslong as you don't fill it full. However, this winter i did a 5 day trek over the presidential mountains in NH and it was not up to the task, it flounders under the expedition weight of 50lbs and the mesh hip and shoulder straps easily absorb water and then freeze stiff as a board. It also started to show sines of stitching fatigue on both the compression straps and the hip-belt attachment to the pack. All in all a great starter pack for around $150 but i now have an osprey aether 85 and am hoping that that is the last bag i ever have to buy.

How do you measure if the pack will fit?...

Posted on

How do you measure if the pack will fit? I am 6'4'' and 290 lbs and after reading the reviews am interested in this back, but am new to backpacking.

Responded on

The main dimension to look at is going to be your torso length. Since you're 6'4", you'll want to measure yourself and make sure you fit within the 22" torso length, which is the maximum this pack can comfortably adjust to. Your weight should be fine for this pack.

This video is a little rough but it shows you how to measure your torso length: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Qvt29gv0X8
Hope this helps.

Kelty Coyote

This is my first pack and my second hike. I went in May on the AT the first time with friends and a borrowed pack. When researching for what I wanted, I visit several hiking stores and the Coyote stood out for me. It is a slightly heavier pack than most, 5 pounds where a friend has 2 pound pack. The organization of the compartments made a large difference for me. My second hike was alone for 4 days on the approach trail to the AT and beyond and I had to carry everything I needed. That is the reason for the 37 pounds with 5 liters of water. The strap system allowed me to adjust as I hiked. I did not have sore shoulders or back during my hike and after the first few hours, I almost forget that I had a pack. The second day after 13.5 mile, the pack slide on and I was ready to hike. I would recommend this pack to anyone. It has a large adjustment strap system, large compartments, well padded, and the waist belt pockets are indispensable. I am looking forward to strapping on my Coyote 3 times next year and keep a picture of my pack in my office to remember that life is only a hike away!

I started at approach trail to Springer Mountain. This was my first break on a 13 mile hike. I was carrying 37 pounds for 5 days of hiking. The pack fit well and the large room inside allowed me to carry what I needed and where I needed. The padding and strap system made the pack extremely comfortable to wear. I will hike three times in 2011 on the AT and look forward to wearing my Coyote. TO keep me motivated, I have a picture of my pack in my office to remind me that life is full pack and a trail to follow!

I am traveling to Africa for a mission...

Posted on

I am traveling to Africa for a mission trip this summer and will be a traveling missionary. I will be gone for two months and need to be able to keep everything i need with me. Understanding that packing clothes will have to be as little as possbile, do you think this pack is big enough? i looked at the Jansport 5000cu in but this pack seems to be better quality. Also all of the compartments would be good for me to keep little things in. Also is this pack waterproof? Im assuming so, I was just not sure.

Responded on

This would be a great pack for you. The lid will extend up a bit more to fit extra gear. Having extra pockets on the outside makes organization a breeze. The Coyote pack fabric does have a Durable Water Repellent finish but is not waterproof. In a brief rainstorm your gear should stay dry. If you think you're going to be out in wet weather for a while, a pack cover is an easy way to keep your stuff dry and not break the bank. Hope this helps.

Responded on

In my opinion this is by far the best pack you can get in this price range and does extremely well even when compared to more expensive packs. They compress down nicely when you have less gear and are also great at expanding out when you have more gear.

I'm not sure what part of Africa you'll be in, but I spent a few years between Ghana and Cameroon, and when it rains, it rains hard! I would definitely shell out a few extra bucks for the rain cover for this pack.

Best of Luck on your trip, you'll love it!

There is a women's specific version of this pack (item# KEL 0636), and yes, I'm told that it's very comfortable.

Awesome First Pack

Pros: Price! This thing holds a ton of gear for its size and the front access panel is a brilliant addition. Hydration access is great. I've had mine for about 6 years and only upgraded recently to the MH BMG because I needed a huge alpine bag for an extended trip requiring tons of group medical gear. Simple to adjust size.

Cons: Waterbottle pockets barely fit a nalgene, hipbelt is not super comfortable with >40 pounds in it, front organizing pocket isn't super useful, not a ton of lashing options.

Overall: 4 stars because it's a great value pack for people looking to get into backpacking, but lacking some of the creature comforts that I'd like.

I have a chance to by this pack used for $50 its in great condition, is it good for day hikes or is it too big?

Responded on

This is a pretty big bag. 31" x 12" x 13" are the dimensions. So you would have a lot of excess room for a day pack. Great for weekend or week long excursions..but for one day..a lil much.

Responded on

One of the reasons I bought this bag was because I can take the top back off completely and presto ... you've got a nice day-pack. The top bag also has a built-in lumbar strap so you can use this as a belly-bag.

Great Pack

If you're looking for a mid-level backpack that will store whatever it is you think you need to bring on a trip, this is the pack for you. Once you get the hang of the strap system, it is a very customizable, comfortable pack also. I've used this with a good 30 pounds in it, and I'd have to say the only back pain i had was on the next day from sleeping the wrong way in a lean-to. A great buy if you are just getting into backpacking, as I am. It has a fairly large capacity, and is adaptable to almost any body size and shape.

I have a Kelty Coyote Red Cloud 5000 pack that I'll be taking to New Zealand for a 3-week trip. Do I need a rain cover, and if so, where can I pick one up? I'm also curious about the size of CamelBak hydration bladder I should get for that pack. Thanks for your help.

Responded on

A rain cover is a good idea. Backcountry.com has a lot of different options. The Red Cloud 5000 can easily accomodate a 100 oz hydration bladder.

My son is ten. He has a torso lenght of 16" and has a 30" waist. I am looking for a pack. That will grow with him on his scouting adventures. Both for weekend and week long trips.

Responded on

Matt,

This pack will be great for your son to grow into. The Torso range is 16" - 22" and will definitely fit a skinny 30" waist. A couple compression straps on the side make it a bit smaller for those shorter excursions. The top converts into a fanny pack and includes another waist belt buckle. Hope this helps...

I am looking for a pack for my son. I was wondering on the size of the hip belt. On how small it will go down to.

Responded on

Hey Matt,

How big is your son? Any info on height, weight, waist size, etc would be helpful to decide if this pack is a good fit. This is a big pack, so it wouldn't fit an 8 year old, but if your son is in high school or older, it would probably work.

Great for a First Pack

I have had my Coyote for over a year now and I love it. It is very simple to use, it can also be hooked up with a camel back type device. I was surprised when I first put it on at how comfortable it was. The pad on the back really helps. It is also well balanced. It doesn't feel top heavy like some other packs. There are also straps on it, you'll notice them going around the pack in the picture up top. These can be used to squeeze the pack to its smallest possible size. This really helps when you are trying to fit it into a tent. The only downside I can think of is that the mesh on the side pockets is a little gimpy. I put a slightly heavy pocket knife/hammer tool in their and it wore through the mesh while I was hiking. That was mostly due to stupidity on my part, I should have known better than putting something heavy like that in the mesh pocket. Overall it is a great pack and I would recommend it to anyone.

Kelty Makes Great Packs!

Durable. Versatile. Affordable. These words come to mind when asked to describe the Coyote 4750 backpack by Kelty, but they, and others, could be summed up with one word above all: Value. One of the grizzled veteran packs of Kelty’s popular Trail series, the Coyote has been around long enough to establish itself as a solid and dependable long weekend or weeklong pack and comes at a great price on top of that. The feature of the Coyote that stands out most, in this tester’s opinion, is its adjustability and versatility in terms of size and space. There are numerous straps that allow smaller (weekend) loads to be cinched down tight, and awkward loads to be accommodated without making the wearer suffer, yet it expands right back out to a full-size weeklong pack in just a few tugs. That flexibility is what most makes this pack such a great value: it really can take the place of two or even perhaps three packs with its large range of effective sizes. Beyond its multitude of sizes, the pack is just solidly built and ready for action. The Cloudlock 2 suspension keeps the load snug against your body but still allows a breath of fresh air to reach those nasty sweaty spots on your back. The pocket placement is also very intuitive and handy. The Coyote is incredibly durable and is sure to last the user a long time: a friend has a Coyote from a few years back and lived out of it in South America for a couple months and it still looks like new despite numerous trips since! Finally, with a list price of $160 this pack has a great price attached to it. Don’t let the seemingly “cheap” price fool you though: this pack means business and will keep you happy for a long time…

This thing can hold a lot of weight. 70-80 lbs. wouldn't be an issue.

The coyote packs

This back rides nice when you get it loaded down. I thought the hip belt was pretty nice and did it's job well. I'am 6'1" and like the easy adjustibility of this back so you can adjust to the right fit for you. As for packing this thing with stuff I really liked the outside entry from the rear of the pack and made it easier to get at stuff that's not at the top. It does pack a good load. I was able to fit a 3 person tent change of clothes, bear vault, sleeping bag and other miscillaneous camping stuff in the outside pockets. My wife had all the cooking gear and what ever else we had. There was good outside strapping if you had straps. I was very pleased with this pack and would recommend to anyone looking for a good multi purpose pack at pretty good and reasonable price.
