    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.

    Good backpack for the money!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this backpack for my son and he's had absolutely no complaints about it. I usually don't load him with more than 30 lbs. of gear. It fits his body just fine and because of it's medium load capacity, it's perfect for all occasions, be it a day hike or an overnighter. It distributes the weight quite well and is very comfortable. To date, I've had absolutely no complaints from him and we've had some brutal outings. That says a lot about the bag. This backpack will definitely be coming along with us on many, many more trips . Definitely a great bag for the money!

    Good Hunting Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I hunt National Forest and spend a good deal of time off trail. Since hearing and sight are very important in getting game, I got this pack because it isn't too tall to block hearing and sight from behind and to my sides. It's not too wide so it's not bad to snag on brush and branches. This pack replaced my old Army surplus ALICE pack, and I shaved off about 5 pounds in weight in the bargain. There's enough room inside to store my coveralls or coat and plenty of pockets to store a range finder, binoculars, and the extra odd bits of equipment. The pockets on the waist belt are great for storing water and food for quick access. A fixed blade knife with a dangler sheath attached to my belt completes the rig.

    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

      Great backpack!

      • 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.
