by fromVery poor quality I purchased this pack to hike the Appalachian Trail. This pack is next to worthless on long distance hikes. None of the straps would stay tight for more than about 100 feet, less on a downhill. I spent more time re-adjusting the straps than anyone should and from the comments from other hikers, it is universal on all Kelty packs. Decent pack with lousy straps = lousy pack

by fromI ended up returning it The pack wore out very fast - the mesh pockets ripped, and the material wore out and started to fray. The many pockets were nice for organization, but I really missed the separate sleeping bag compartment.

by fromNot Durable In the first few months of having this bag, I experienced the following problems: - The seam for the lifting handle at the top of the bag started tearing in the first month. - The sliding chest strap started popping off the rail and fabric on the bottom of the bag wore out in the second month. - After 4 months, the shoulder strap buckles started slipping to the point that the tail of the strap had to be knotted for the pack to be wearable. Bottom Line: If you go out a few times a month with lighter loads, this is a very inexpensive option. If you want something you can travel the world with or that will last you a decade, there are better choices.

by fromGood pack for tall people Only fits tall people, and there isn't a seperate bottom compartment for your sleeping bag. There also isn't a hole for a camel pack, so you have to stick it in the front pouch and leave the zipper undone a little. Other than that it's a great pack and an even better price. It has great ventalation so my back doesn't get all sweaty, and the straps are comfortable. I think if I was to buy another one I'd look around a little more first but will be keeping this one.

by fromA Great Pack from a Great Company I use this pack for just about anything. I pack it instead of a suitcase for trips, just so i can laugh at all of the people whose arms are full of random stuff while i still have a full range of movement. Anyway, it's a pack worthy of Kelty's name. It's durable, lightweight, and the packability is amazing. Almost all of the pack is able to be utilised in some way, and there are plenty of little hidey-holes for stuff. I sacrifice weight and size for comfort, but I still have a nice amount of room left in the pack, though it took a bit of practice for me to learn the right way to do so. I really don't have any complaints about the pack, it will haul anything and adjust to anything and any person as long as you can pack it right.

by fromAwsome pack The only complaint I have about this pack is no port for a drinking tube if you use a hydration system. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I packed 50 lbs of gear in it and it did'nt feal at all like I had that much weight. It is very comfy, and easy to make adjustments. The fact that it has no sleeping bag compartment is no problem at all, It is very easy to load,unload and has plenty of room. Love this pack!

by fromAn amazing bargain of a pack This pack is a great deal for the price, and is competitive with other packs that are 2-3 times as much! For an 80L pack it's fairly light when empty, and fits me like a glove. I'm also amazed at how small this thing can cinch down to when you don't need the extra space. If you want to be able to go on longer trips but still have a smaller, more agile pack for shorter ones, this is a great option. That said, nothing's perfect - it has no bottom access or sleeping bag compartment. While light for its size class, it's definitely heavier than a smaller (40-60L) pack, so if you're an ounce-counting ultralight type this might not be the pack for you.

by fromUsed on a trip to Europe We used only backpacks as our main luggage for our very recent holiday to Ireland. They fit very well in the overhead compartment on those longer flights. You need to close the waist belt before sending it through security because it gets caught on the belt as well as the plane seats when boarding. The other backpack that was used was an REI Women's Grand Tour. We wanted something simple so we could lug through airports and these were the perfect choice. You can lock them too and you can bet we will use them again. Cheers.
