Closeouts. With features like a large zip main compartment, ample accessory pockets and a padded waistbelt, Kelty's Redwing 50 backpack remains the proven trail classic its always been, just with a stylish face lift.

This pack holds alot!! Easy to access, fully opens, sleeping bag can fit inside easy enough. Has plenty of daisy chain loops for attaching extra gear, plenty of cushioning in shoulders and on the waist strap, would have been nice to have some extra storage pockets on waist strap for smaller items. Only negative was there was very little play for torso adjustment. But its a great pack for the price so I'm happy!!

Kelty is a well-regarded maker of outdoor equipment, and this pack demonstrates why they have earned that reputation. The design is sensitive, the manufacture is flawless, and the color is surprising! Loved it a lot.
Sadly, it was too small for my purposes (an alternative to a duffel for the gym), so I had no use for it and returned it. It was such a thing of beauty, though, that I really considered keeping it just to have it.

I bought a Redwing 50 a year ago because I was going on a trip and didn't want to check luggage. The bag compresses well so your stuff doesn't jiggle around while you walk around. I later used the backpack to tote sound equipment around. I've also done a few short hikes with it - I love the exterior drink holders and the five main compartments. I started rock climbing and needed another backpack to hold all that gear. After looking at reviews of the Redwing and a few others, I was pleased to find out the bag has rock climbing in mind (as well as many other uses.)

I am a Cub Scout Den Leader. I plan to use this bag during our campouts (mostly car camping) and when hiking with my cub scouts to help carry supplies. ( first aid kit, flashlights, etc) 3300 is a LOT of space for just a day hike, but you dont have to fill the pack.
