My best friend has one of these from circa 1980. He is a boy scout leader and has used this pack a lot and loves it. We are all amazed at how tough it is and how it is as good as the day it was new-even all the zippers. Plus, the volume it holds is amazing. Maybe not the best pack if hiking trails where tight quarters occur (gaps in rock formations, etc.). It distributes the weight well too. He especially likes how you can set it down on the ground and not get the pack or sleeping bag (which is on the bottom externally) dirty or muddy because the frame keeps it off the ground. Something those of us with internal frame packs envy when on muddy trails.

I was looking at packs for a long time. I actually returned a very expensive internal frame pack because when I carried it with weight it was just too much for me. This is the same size pack but carries the weight so much better. I tested one of these in the store and my wife gripped the frame to simulate weight and I picked her up off the ground. She weighs 84 lbs. I was impressed and while I didn't buy them there that day as I had to return the other pack. I did buy them through Kelty directly with a savings coupon. So far loving the pack. Still working on weight distribution but very happy with it. I like that you can attach various stuff to the frame itself. If I could change anything I would make this a bit larger say a 75-80 liter and have the ability for the main section to be all one size with access from the side as well as the bottom.

I bought this pack last year and it has proved to be a big upgrade from a traditional internal frame back, for the 1-4 day hikes I do in the Sierras. having the load up higher makes for a much more comfortable day's hiking. The higher center of gravity does make it less stable if you're scrambling over boulders, but you can cinch the straps tight temporarily over very rough terrain. Having a lot of separate pockets makes it easy to find things, and the main compartment is big enough for a bear canister. Only drawback is that everyone asks me whether I'm a scout master ;-)

Very solid design... I look forward to using this pack during the fall for a few hikes I have planned. LOTS of bag space and room on the frame for more gear. I am a comfort-driven backpacker, so this is an ideal pack. If I want to go lightweight, the bag itself is removable, so I can just stuff sack all of my gear and attach it to the naked frame. An excellent product!
