Whether you have your sights set on a distant peak that requires you to hit the trailhead before dawn, or you're just out for an afternoon jaunt with the dog, the Kelty Redtail 27 Backpack hauls everything you need for your next day hike. It has a stable, comfortable design so you can hike happily, and it offers enough room for everything you need for a few hours on the trail.
Its panel-loading design makes it easy to efficiently pack your gear, and the HDPE frame sheet ensures support and stability when you have it loaded up. Compression straps help you keep everything as compact as possible. Hex Mesh along the back panel, straps, and belt boost breathability for superior airflow when you're sweating it out on the trail. And when you have to pause the fun for the real world, the hydration compartment doubles as a laptop sleeve.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Day-pack, every-day pack, weekend-er, commuter, etc etc. I got this pack as a replacement bag for the falling-apart bag my partner brought everywhere, and we're stoked about it. The straps and padding are great and super comfortable, the material is tough and water resistant, and there's tons of pockets and space. It has a reservoir space that doubles as a laptop sleeve, a huge inner compartment, an easy-access brain storage for keys/phones/quick-reach items, and a significantly large front pocket. We got the black and it's a rich, great color. It's well-organized and will work well from touring trips in the backcountry to backpacking overseas :) win!
