There's a reason why the Redcloud 90 has been in the Kelty line for years. A perfect blend of load carrying capacity, comfortable suspension, custom fit, simplified organization, and durable construction make this load hauler the only pack you'll need for extended backcountry adventures. PerfectFIT™ suspension is designed to be fully adjustable to fit your torso length and carry a heavy load, providing unmatched stability and comfort on the trail.
This large pack is super easy to load with the top loading design and sleeping bag compartment, but you won't have any issues finding what you need with the front-panel access and zippered side pockets. No need for an extra day pack - the lid of the pack also converts into a sling pack. Bonus! Hydration and snacks won't be an issue either with its hydration compatible design and hip belt pockets for small items. The LightBeam™ dual aluminum stays are connected to the hip belt providing direct load transfer while the anti-barreling stays keep the scapula pad flat--even if the pack is overloaded. The HDPE-reinforced, dual density waist belt improves load-support and enhances overall carrying comfort as well while the dual positions for load-lifters straps keeps the pack weight from shifting. Finally, the AirMesh shoulder straps, waist belt, and lumbar pad are designed to keep air moving through and keep you comfortable all day. Hip belt can be removed. For hikers who demand excellence and durability at an affordable price, the Redcloud 90 delivers.

This pack is great, good space and plenty of pockets. I wish the front pouch was a little more stretchy though, so I could slide my sleeping bag into the bottom of it. Unknown on May 14th 2018
I have only used this backpack for one 10-mile backpacking trip so far so I don't have a lot of experience with it yet, but I think it is an excellent pack. It can hold a lot of gear so I will have to be careful not to overload it with more than I can carry, but I wanted a large pack so I can go winter camping and carry extra clothes. The adjustment system seems to work very well and the multiple external pockets make it easy to organize and find things. I think the external water bottle pockets could be improved. I think the mesh might snag on a branch and tear and my water bottle has fallen out of the pocket when taking the pack off. I don't think that's enough of a reason to mark the pack down one star though. As far as the colors go, I don't understand why some folks are complaining about them. Both the green color which I got and the blue color are very attractive IMHO. If people don't like a colorful pack, they can always get the black one. I would recommend this pack to anyone looking for a large, high quality pack at a good price. SidW on May 10th 2018
I recently purchased this backpack knowing that there was the possibility of adjustment issues because there isn’t a women’s version (I have found this to be true above 90L in every brand I have looked at). I have loved almost everything about this pack, since I got it except one thing. Being a fairly small person (5’4” and 108 lb), I’m worried that once I get a lot of weight in this pack I won’t have enough adjustment available in the hip belt if I need to cinch it down. I called to ask if I could buy the hipbelt from a smaller pack (perhaps the women’s Redcloud 80) but I was told that the option to buy just a hipbelt isn’t available. I would really love it if Kelty would offer a women’s hipbelt even if the market wouldn’t support a full women’s version of the 90L and 110L Redclouds. I am really sad that I might need to replace the hipbelt with something from another brand (if it’s even possible) because the Kelty hipbelt is so cushy and comfortable. Please help out me and my fellow petite ladies who need 90L+ options. Hanna on Apr 24th 2018
Just finished a 56 mile trip through the Appalachian trail and this pack was wonderful. I prefer over Gregory and Deuter. Just wish it had a better hydration system. You have to unpack a bit to insert the bladder. Other then that it was amazing!! Mike on Apr 14th 2018
Packed this pack full for a 10 hike through the Smokey Mountains. Carried it for 40 miles and felt comfortable and no stress on shoulders. Easy to make adjustments while on the trail and Anthony on Mar 23rd 2018
I was originally searching for a large enough pack to accomplish multi-day backpacking trips with my 5 year old son (i.e. carrying enough gear for two people) and the Red Cloud 90 is the perfect bag for this. I've taken this on multiple long distance trips into the Trinity Alps Wilderness and it's become my go-to bag not only for family trips but also solo ones as well. Even with smaller loads, the pack distributes loads well and doesn't feel sloppy. It's comfortable, adjustable, and so far, extremely durable. It's also a great balance between overall weight and features. For me, external pockets and storage organization are preferred and the Red Cloud 90 is extremely well thought-out in that regard. I'm 5ft 7in and 170lbs and it fits great with plenty of torso adjustability remaining. The black and grey color scheme looks great as well. Thanks Kelty for the well designed and affordable pack! K.

Just got back from my first backpacking trip with this pack and it was perfect. I’d used packs in the past that would have my shoulders sore after 5 miles however with this one I didn’t get sore once. There was also a ton of space for all my gear and then some. The pockets on the side allow for easy access to water bottles and the ones on the waist strap worked perfectly for storing my phone for whenever I needed to take a quick pic. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking for a new backpack. Brody on Sep 26th 2017
I purchased the Redcloud Jr for my son a few weeks back to use in Boy Scouts. After a recent trip I decided I needed to upgrade to a larger pack myself, so I decided on the Redcloud 90. Very happy with it so far. I was concerned at first a 90L would almost be too big and would be uncomfortable. After getting this, I am glad I chose it over something slightly smaller. Has enough room for all my gear on extended trips but comfortable enough that I can pack it light and still use on weekend adventures. It doesn't feel like you have a huge pack on. It's very comfortable and the straps are very easy to adjust. The only 2 things I would ask Kelty to change about it was the colors available.. and more individual pockets inside the main compartments for smaller items.
The side pockets are nice and big but when full I had to adjust to make my trekking poles attach.
The bottom sleeping back compartment is divided from the main but only by a removable flap and it doesn't actually seal.. so items can fall from the top to the bottom. I would like to have seen this actually sewn in to 2 individual areas.. but it's a little thing.
Overall there is very little bad about this and a whole lot good! I love it and would buy again without concern. It's well built and very durable. @hoosier_hiker on Aug 27th 2017
I bought two of these packs. One in the Twilight Blue and one in the Ponderosa Pine for me and my son for our Trek at Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico. Our Trek was a Rugged 77 miles, and the back packs held up greatly. Only a few minor problems.
The minor problems, we had Camelback 1.5 liter water bottles for our trek, they don't fit well in the side pouches. They stayed in the pouches and were clipped onto the pack with carabiners. Our trek poles couldn't be placed on the sides, because our camp shoes were in the side pockets and it made it hard to get the trek poles in and out of the sides. We placed the trek poles in the center outer pouch with the handles down, it tore the mess on the center pouch a little. The zipper on the sleeping bag compartment stick at times, other then that, these backs are great.
Once you have the pack dialed in and adjusted to you it works great. Our whole trek was a Rugged 77 miles, the pack fit great, even on my back. I only had a few problems with the shoulder straps, but once i got them adjusted the pack felt great.
It can hold a lot in it. I had a Sumo jet boil cooking pot, a kelty 2 garrison 2 person tent, a kelty tuck 22 sleeping bag, a camel back 3 liter bladder, and all my gear and still had room in my pack. My son had no problems with his pack, since another scout used his trek poles.
I'd highly recommend this pack to anyone, including scouts going to Philmont. Oh the pack also cleans up very easy. Eric on Jul 28th 2017
The backpack has everything you need and the sling pack top is a great addition. The 90L is a little bit smaller than Id expected so if your like me looking for a bag to travel overseas with then the 120L is the one for you. But all in all I will be keeping the 90L and doing my backpacking internationally with it. Cris on Jan 3rd 2017
