Kelty Coyote

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bag is pretty awesome, I car camp and do a little backpacking and it works great for that. The side pockets store my ridge line and hammock. The lid stores my headlamp,first aid, multi-tool and ,GPS. The front pocket holds my solar panel and the main compartment is big enough for plenty of clothes and a down sleeping bag and a few menu items.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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!

Solid backpack

First off, there is a ton of space in this pack. Many different compartments to store whatever you need. I would give its comfortability an 8/10. The best part is the adjustable back support system which is really easy to use. I carried 55 lbs in it on a 50 mile backpacking hike in Isle Royale and it performed great!

Seems to be a great pack.

Have not had a change to try it out yet. Leaving for a 50 mile trip through Buckskin Gulch next week. With the pack loaded it feels very comfortable.

Responded on

How was Buckskin Gulch? How did the pack hold up?

Responded on

It held up great and I love this pack. Easy to get to all you stuff. A little hard to get the fit dialed in. Buchskin was long and muddy. Paria we great.

Responded on

I had a small issue with mine. I had it packed so tight that the pockets for the water bottles started tearing in a couple places. Not a huge deal but something to watch out for

Great for young backpacker

I am 23 and in good shape. I loaded this pack down with well over 50 lbs for a 20 mile weekend trip and it was great. I had to carry most of the supplies for my group because I was the only one who can handle it and not whine so I carried all my personal supplies, 2 man tent, the pots and food and it all fit no problem. I was comfortable but my father says that he would not be comfortable in the same pack. So if you are young and in shape and not a whiner this pack will be much more than enough. I am 5'11" 200lbs and the M/L was slightly long but like I said, I had no discomfort

My torso length is 18.5". Should I go with a S/M or M/L?

Responded on

You could probably be okay either way, but I would go with M/L. Best of luck!

Responded on

yeah go with M/L

Posted on

I am interested in buying a back pack that could be used for a long weekend for hiking or stored in a dry compartment on my kayak. I do not take weekly or monthly trips but seize opportunities when they arise (sometimes once every 18 months or longer). I know that Kelty is generally high quality and durability yet I don't know how they stack up economically. How does Kelty compare with Osprey in regard to backpacks?

Best Answer Responded on

I've only used Kelty packs but in general they have slightly heavier materials, less sophisticated designs than Osprey but are durable and generally much cheaper. I backpack a fair amount and have been curious about "upgrading" to a more expensive pack such as Osprey or Gregory, but I've been pretty satisfied with my Kelty pack.

great bag

This is a great bag for those looking to carry a lot of gear. I was able to carry everything in it with out trying to play tetris. I had a great suspension system which really takes all the weight off your back, its got 2 water bottle holders on either side so if one was so inclined they could put 4 1L bottles in them, it has waist pockets for easy access. it has a hip belt and a chest belt. It is a very good bag and I was defiantly satisfied with it.

Second Backpack and a solid step up.

I had a Peak1 external frame backpack that I beat the heck out of an served me well for a first backpack and traded up for this one. It is a great pack that will definitely get you through the weekend, or even longer depending on how/what you pack.

I plan on taking a 10 x 19 inch sleeping bag with me. How do you think this will fare being inside this pack?

Responded on

Kelty lists the dimensions of the pack: 34"x16"x16.5". You'll have to carry the sleeping bag vertically or use a compression sack to cut 3" off the length.

Responded on

You can't see it, but this pack does have the ability to use webbing or cord to secure something (probably a tent or sleeping bag) to either the top or bottom. I'd recommend doing that over having it inside the pack. Most Backpack covers are built to accommodate doing this if you are worried about rain.

What do the s/m and m/l options refer to?

Best Answer Responded on

Torso length. Most people under 5'6" will fit the s/m.

Posted on

My documentation that came with this must assume I know what I'm doing or that I know about backpacks. I bought this along with a hydration unit but I have no idea where the hydration unit goes and how the hose is snaked to me. Any clues -- detailed please?

Best Answer Responded on

Russell,

Most Kelty backpacks have a pouch in the main pocket for your hydration bladder. This will be on the inner wall of the backpack closest to your body while you're wearing it (water is heavy, and heavy objects are better packed closer to your center of mass). When you pack your bladder, the tube should be on the bottom so it will always be covered in water and you won't be sucking air when you're exhausted and thirsty.

The "snake" is a little harder to find. It's usually a little hole about where your neck should be between that pocket and the outside of the pack, and may be labeled with a little "H2O" or a water droplet. You can sometimes find it offset to one side towards the top seam of the main pocket. My advice, feel around for it until your finger goes through something. It's often covered by a water-resistant top material.

Happy trails!

First Backpack

This is my first large pack that I've bought and used and overall it's a good value. Materials are high quality and storage room is sufficient. Though the cinches for the shoulder straps seem to slip and need re-adjusting every few hundred yards on the trail. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. Comfortable ride.

Responded on

My first large one also. I feel the same. Great number of outside stowaways. Great material. Easy on the eyes and the back! I love that adjustable suspension.

Responded on

The adjustable suspension is my favorite thing about it!

Would this be a good pack for philmont.

Would this be a good pack for philmont.

Responded on

It will be plenty big if that's what you're asking.

Responded on

Yes this is a great pack for philmont, it has a ton of features for storage like the front panel pocket, side pockets, panel access, hydration compatible as well as a removable top pocket with it's own waist belt to turn it into a lumbar pack.

Responded on

I can't think of one larger that I'd want. Turns lots of weight into nothing.

Responded on

I just took this pack on a 12 day treck atPhilmont. 80 miles. Had about 40lbs in it. worked very well. almost to small

Responded on

I had 55 lbs in mine for a 5 day trip and it was surprisingly not too bad

Great For longer adventures

I haven't been to many places yet with this pack, but so far it has been good. I have taken it on a 2 week road trip and also a 4 day hiking adventure. It performed great and the suspension system works very well, no pain!!! I just wish it had a smaller pocket on the bottom to break up the main pouch like the Red Cloud. Besides that, it is a great pack would recommend!
