Perfect Service

    Ordered this item 2 Days ago, came a day early. Correct item in perfect condition. Received 3 follow-up e-mails. Based on all of the reviews I have read the item is ideal for my needs, service was great, price was very good. (my first review, ever)

    What is the hipbelt range?

    Hipbelt Fit Range: 28 - 46 in / 71 - 116 cm


    Solid, but not excellent

      Not the most comfortable pack, but well built and a great value at the price. A little on the heavy side and ventilation is less than desirable, but great pocket design and excellent durability.


      Comfy and rugged

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Bought this pack 2 years ago for overnight hiking trips and travel. I travel around the country regularly and I've used this pack constantly and it's held up amazing. It's survived more flights than my pelican box.



      • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      The suspension rod is digging into my spine at the top of the waste belt interface. This pack is unusable for me.

      How does one remove the hip belt? Looks like the frame goes right through it.

      Just posted a couple images showing the other side. It looks like the belt is attached through a sleeve at the base of the back of the pack... but not sure.

      The review below "Great travel backpack!!!" specifically states that the hip belt is NOT removable, which of course contradicts the product description.

      You might want to hop on live chat with BC so they can answer definitively AND fix the copy on the website if need be.

      Can this pack support a 3 day hike? If so,...

      Can this pack support a 3 day hike? If so, where can you store tent or sleeping bag? Want to stay multiple nights.

      This pack would be a bit of a stretch to use on a 3 day trek as it doesn't have a specific tent or sleeping bag compartment. That doesn't mean you can't split up the tent components between three people and stuff you gear at the bottom of your back, it just might not leave a whole lot of room for other gear.

      I think this pack serves better as a travel or crag pack than an overnight hiking pack.

      My nephew used this pack for a 2 day/one night trip and was able to fit everything he needed inside the pack. Tent (TNF Flint), sleeping bag (down) and pad (Thermarest inflatable-not sure which one), stove and cookset (nests), Sawyer purifier with 2 1-ltr nalgenes, and more than enough food and snacks. I believe 3-4 days would be the max for this pack.

      I used the Kelty Coyote 80 on the same trip, because I always bring too much crap. If you are like Matt, you can use the 50 and be just fine. If like me, get the 80, heh.


      Great travel backpack!!!

        It's a great pack even though mine is the Redwing 44 not the 50. I can carry this bag onto a plane every time. Very durable (even though I'm rough with it) provided that no more than three days' worth of winter clothes were packed. Love the panel-loading design as it's quicker to access stuffs inside. Only problem is that the non-removable waist-belt would be a pain if I''m prancing around town during the day (when I don't use that belt). Great travel backpack.

        Description says the waist belt is removable... but you say it's not. Can you confirm it's not?

        It appears the waist belt is not removable on the most recent model. My Redwing 50 M/L arrived today. The stay runs through the belt so removing it is not the option it was on earlier models in which velcro held the waist belt in place. Also, there doesn't seem to be the opening for a hydration tube to pass through that the earlier models had. At least, I haven't found an opening yet.

        The waist belt is in fact removable. Open the main compartment, undo the velcro, and pull the stay up, and then you can remove the waist belt. That part is easy, the hard part is getting the stay back into the small slot on the waist belt to re-secure it. Not too hard, but a little frustrating.

        • Familiarity:I've used it several times

        I have had this pack out on three seperate outings, all three were overnight hikes. This bag has held up to my expectations and it is very durable and well put together.
