Great backpack however beware! I ordered the Redwing 30 Tactical in light gray however, the actual color of the backpack is “dark” gray like a charcoal. I returned that backpack and ordered the same backpack in blue and this one showed up dark blue instead of the brighter blue color from the website. No worries for me because I absolutely love the darker blue so I’m good.
On another note understand that the consumer is responsible for return postage fees even though the colors are not the same as the pictures on the website show.
All in all though I was originally disappointed I ended up with a great backpack in dark blue. I’m still not happy about having to pay $19 to return a backpack that was the wrong color and not my fault at all. Unknown on Mar 17th 2018
I have purchased a lot of kelty packs and I think of each one as a tool with its own specific function. When I think "tactical" I think modular with the ability to become multi use. This is the perfect sized pack for a large variety of tasks. It fits great and is extremely comfortable however I think it fails to capitalize on a huge opportunity. The side pockets definitely were a good idea to keep off this small pack however in their place should have been some molle webbing, or an area to attach modular pouches. This would truly extend the capabilities. The colors should have been more along the lines of the old Coyote 80 or Map3500 options. This is a tactical bag after all as the name states.

Love this Kelty Tactical 30 in forest green. Well built. I like the heavy zippers. Great color. Everything is where it should be, and no extra crap or side pockets, make it very utilitarian and sleek. I only have 2 complaints. 1., I wish it was a little bigger, maybe 35-40 liter. The next size up is 44 liter, but you have those stupid side pockets. This pack would be perfect for EVERYTHING if it was 40 liter!!!!!!!! 2., The water bottle pockets tapers at the bottom, making almost every water bottle useless. I tried a Nalgene wide mouth 48 oz. Nope. A Rove 34 oz. wide mouth No. Even my narrow Klean Kanteen 27 oz. works it's way up and out unless strapped down with the side compression strap. If you EVER make this pack in 40 liter with flat bottoms on the water bottle pockets, CALL ME IMMEDIATELY! I will buy 5 of them. I am that serious. It will be the PERFECT pack. I will give it as gifts to everyone I know, even my 82 year old Mother. I will keep 3 extra for myself, just to "have" I kid you not, if you make this in 40 liter with flat bottom water pockets, It will be the greatest pack the world has ever known!!! Thank you Kelty :-) Johnny O. Boston on Dec 14th 2017
