    Ole man backpack

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Been using the Yucon 2900ci Kelty backpack w/external frame
    since my first AT through in 2005. I have bounced around with other packs but come back to the Yucon because it is more comfortable
    then any other pack that I've tried. With all the weight on the hip
    belt and not the shoulders I've enjoyed hike (a young lady at
    the 3rd shelter nobo from Damascus, Va showed me how to
    adjust the pack) even with u/l equipment the Yukon still carries

    Timeless and Functional

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is an updated version of a timeless design and my favorite pack for many situations. I've owned many new good quality internal frame packs, but keep going back to this one.

    A back saver for heavier loads and multi-day trips as it effectively distributes the weight to your hips rather than your shoulders. The padding on the lumbar belt and shoulder straps is very good.

    These packs are highly adjustable for fit. I'm -5'8" -165lbs -42"chest -30" waist and 18" torso. Even the S/M adjusts out enough to fit me.

    Strapping my tent, bag, and pad to the outside leaves 3000 cu in of internal storage which is plenty for me personally. If you need more, step up to the Trekker.

    Good organization and access. 6 external pockets, an internal divider, and water bladder compatible. The water bottle pocket on the outside fits my 40oz Klean Kanteen perfectly.

    External frames are great for distance hiking, load carrying, and ventilation. That's why many of us still use them. They don't fit as tight as most internal frames, so I still use an internal frame pack for more challenging technical mountaineering.

    Yes it's a somewhat old school design, but there's a reason why it's been used for decades.

    Unanswered Question

    I am just getting into backpacking and am looking for a solid pack to get started with.
    I am trying to decide between this pack and the Trekker?
    I am pretty petite, 5'4" and 110lb. Looking for a backpack for 2-4 night trips.

    What is the length of the hipbelt and shoulder straps?

    The Small/Medium (48 liter/2900 cubic inch) size will accommodate torsos ranging from 13"-19" while the Medium/Large (50 liter/3000 cu in) fits 16"-21" torsos. That info has been drawn directly from Kelty's website, but regarding the actual length of each of those straps, I cannot seem to locate such info. In any case, I don't think it's really the strap lengths you should be focused on, but instead what size pack would accommodate your body, if you are considering purchasing. Hope this helps!
