Pack your pick: a four-course spread or all you need for an overnighter.
The Kelty Redwing Backpack lets you go big on an epic day trip equipped with layers for cold or wet weather, gear for any adventure, and a big spread for refueling in style. Or you can stuff this versatile pack for a quick overnighter or fast-moving weekend. Thanks to its supportive harness system, whatever type of load you carry will sit stably and comfortably. Plenty of pockets, hydration compatibility, and exterior organizers keep the essentials easy to access.

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, 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.

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.
