If you prefer to travel light, then the Flyway is for you. A standard-style backpack with travel-friendly features like a separate compartment for shoes or dirty clothes and a pack cover that protects shoulder straps when checked, the Flyway carries easily and fits enough gear for a long weekend away.

I ordered the Flyway so I could compare it with another backpack I was considering for around the world travel. I love the separate shoe/dirty clothes compartment and built in cover. However, I ultimately returned it mainly because of the lack of locking zippers. I would love to see an upgraded version of this bag with zippers that can be locked with a TSA approved lock for security. If that feature were incorporated (a slightly lighter version would be an added bonus as well) this would be my number one bag pick for travel!

I love the design of the bag. I think the design is the best for travel, bar none. The included rain cover is a real plus, the divider for dirty cloths is a well thought out idea. My only gripe and reason i had to return it is it is literally 1" too short for a particular part of my gear to fit. I would really like to see at Flyway 46 or 48. I ended up with another Redwing 50. I've used a 1998 Redwing for travel all over the USA and Europe because it fits in the overhead, but alas it's showing it's age. PLEASE make a bigger Flyway!

This is by far the greatest pack ever made. Whoever from Kelty designed this pack deserves a medal of some sort. This design allows multi purpose use for whatever you need. That includes work, school, travel or any outdoor activity.

Purchased for a two week trip to Italy, this and a carry on was all like needed. The pack was a perfect fit for the overhead bins. Tons of storage, light weight, and the waist belt has a storage pocket so it is not flapping around all the time. Overall great product.

The flyway is the perfect travel backpack. It has the same features as the redwing, which has been my standard carry-on for years, plus additional travel friendly features that make it worthy of top honors. The separate compartment for shoes or dirty clothes and the padded laptop storage compartment compliment the packs ability to live up to its expectations. I would highly recommend this pack to anyone looking for a general use backpack that can be at home on the trail, in the airport terminal, or in the classroom. Thank you Kelty.
