Fly like an eagle-bird.
When your travel plans flit around as frequently as the capricious goldfinch, it's crucial to pack for both the unpackable and the unexpected, which is where the Kelty Redwing 50 Backpack comes into play. Built to cater to your short attention span and ever-changing travel itinerary , the Redwing is equipped a generous 50L main compartment that confidently carries your travel-haul while the HDPE frame sheet, Hex Mesh back panel, and Perfect-FIT suspension ensures adaptive comfort, whatever your load is. The load lifter straps, sternum strap, and adjustable waistbelt take the load off your fanny, and the ice axe or trekking pole loops keep the Redwing 50 traditional without taking on the bulky, external frame look.

The best around
This bad is super solid. Plenty of space for stuff and a great design exterior pocket. Lots of clips and straps for that extra summin summin, well sized for travelling and overnight trips. This thing will take you through hell and back. Highly recommend
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I recently purchased this backpack for my fiancé, and he's very impressed! Very versatile pack. It's perfect for any situation- day hikes with our dog, overnight camping trips, backcountry skiing, or travel - and is very sturdy with excellent back support. He says it's going to be his new go-to back for any situation. Highly recommended!
Excellent, Excellent Backpack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is by far the best designed backpack I have owned. And I have owned 3 packs of this size in my life. I have been using it daily for about 3 months for lugging around my martial arts & gym gear and also for trips with my 3 year old (she just grew out of the stroller and we are still in a place where I need to carry all her stuff). The pockets are well located, functional and deep. The main pack area is well designed for accessibility, and the synch-down strap system is basically perfect. The shoulder straps are comfortable and the back is designed to allow air between you and the pack. There is a good youtube video demonstration for the pack as well. (Just google it.) I highly recommend this product. (And no, I do not work for Kelty. I just really like the pack.) Cheers.
Best All Purpose Pack
