- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My summer Kamp I work for uses these for our gear packs and they have held up to massive use for a couple summers and still going strong! I find hem to be a little small but just my opinion.
Looking for Kelty Redtail 1600 Backpack, Style No: 22040084 replacement.
5 yrs have gone by and the waterproofing laminate inside is peeling away; not waterproof anymore.
So I ordered the Kelty Redtail 30 Backpack-1800cu in., as it was close in configuration/ style & volume of my old one.
I received it in the mail and to my disappointment the main zipper was smaller in size, (skinny, wimpy, thinner mesh), and appeared weaker than my old one. This was the main zipper too, which is the heart of the whole backpack; hate to sound negative here but also observed that all the, (unpadded), straps were more narrow than my old one. One good feature about the main opening was the added rain flap over the zipper; odd though that it was lacking one on the smaller outside pocket designed for organizing pens, wheelbook, calculator, reading glasses and such.
Overall the makers of the new Kelty Redtail 30 Backpack appeared to be SCRIMPING on the materials used for their NEW product.

my fiance is over 6ft and about 260lbs very big shoulders and chest. Will this pack fit him?
It very well could but I will say it will look kinda small on him, may I recommend the North Face Big Shot I or II? They would look more "stylish."
Can this hold a laptop with a 15in...

I'd measure your laptops dimensions and see if they will fit in the pack's dimensions:
Length: 21 in / 53 cm
Width: 13.5 in / 34 cm
Depth: 13 in / 33 cm
I can fit my 16.4" laptop easily.
I use this pack for weekend casual trips or for a sport orientated day pack. I was able to fit everything I needed for either case. Plenty of small compartments as well as ample room for bladder. Shoulder straps are comfy and good adjustment. Great pack overall.
