A sized-down version of Kelty's best-selling Redwing with all the features and organization needed for around-town travel or a day on the trail. With a full-access U-zipper, the Redwing 32 works both as a top-loader and a panel loader, adding convenience to any adventure. The multi-purpose padded sleeve will protect sensitive items and also doubles as a hydration sleeve. Water bottle pockets and zippered side pockets keep everything you need organized and easy to get to. HDPE frame sheet makes up the frame while the dynamic airflow back panel and AirMesh shoulder straps and lumbar pad keep the ventilation going. Waist belt can be tucked away when not in use. This pack is small but mighty.

  1. Redwing 32 Review

    Have not had enough time to really put this pack to the test, but did take an excursion via train from Philadelphia to Brooklyn, NY and marveled at the design and structure of the pack - was able to bring quite an assortment of things which all fit easily. I had quick access to laptop and book, etc. Really see that Kelty designers earn their wages - really great product. Planning day hikes and trips as I write this .... on Jun 25th 2018

  2. Great Features, But Not for Plus-Size People

    I absolutely love the features and quality of the pack. It can hold all the necessary items for doing field work or even a 2 day hike out. The only issue I have is that the waist belt/strap is too short. If the straps are important to you, then only order this pack if you are below size 16. Although the size is subjective, it's meant to give a ballpark for judging if it's a good fit for you. I am going to see if I can get extenders as this was one of the selling points for me. The area inside the pack for hydration is ideal for carrying tablets and other flat field collecting devices. All of the design features are intuitive and well-timed. I would consider this a perfect and versatile backpack. on Jun 16th 2018

  3. Perfect pack for daily use

    This pack has all the features I could ask for at a perfect size for my daily use backpack. Love that it comes in black so it can go with everything I might want to wear. Have yet to use it for any hikes, but I know it will exceed my expectations. Great frame, works well for my back. So light too! Looking forward to many years of use. on Mar 19th 2018

  4. Lumbar support

    Hiked 5 miles with the Redwing 32. Carried a 3 liter bladder, 2 sports water bottle with electrolytes and snacks. Had enough room for an additional layer, rain jacket, and first aid kit. Key stayed snug with key clip. My cell phone fit in one of the side pockets which was easy to grab to take pictures or look at GPS app. Took the Redwing 32 hiking in the snow. Hiking poles fit nicely in the bottom loops. I would highly recommend this day pack. Love the color, too. on Feb 22nd 2018

  5. Awesome day pack

    KELTY REDWING 32 2017 model 1/25/2018
    I bought the KELTY REDWING 32 L for day hiking and snowshoeing largely because it is a very versatile backpack. The REDWING 32 with its large main compartment, seven outside pockets, two of which are mesh wand pockets and one is a stash pocket (in some genre’s known as a shovel pocket), has outstanding organizational capability…For me, each pocket has a dedicated purpose- it seemed intuitive. Also for my needs at 32L/1950 cubic Inches, this pack is not too big or too small; it handles my normal 20 pounds of gear i.e. food, stove, extra layers, first aid kit, purifier, and 100 0z reservoir just fine. In fact, I find that the REDWING 32 tends to mold to my back and is so comfortable and stable that I rarely notice it… Access to all the compartments is simple and straight forward, plus the zippers work smoothly and don’t catch on fabric. I really like the option of top-loading or panel loading feature with the big main compartment, it really is very convenient when you are out there and either need something near the top of the pack or something buried at the bottom-kudos! The stash pocket in the center of the pack is very handy for layers you may want to add or remove often or wet items that you don’t want inside your pack. Also, the sleeve behind the upper side pockets is a handy place to stow a fishing pole or trekking poles. The compression system does its job well keeping the packs contents stable particularly in rougher terrain, plus there is a lash point just behind the bar tack on each of the four compression straps, which is what I use to strap down my snow shoes when I wind up carrying them in fickle conditions. By the way, I have had good luck using “Strap Gear “tie down straps for anchoring items on the outside of my packs. The harness is very comfortable and will easily handle more load than I will subject it to, plus it breaths very well as does the supportive back panel. Also, the horizontal grey stretchy straps on both sides of the harness make a great place to run your drinking tube and bite valve thru making it handy to get to. The sternum strap is easy to adjust and stays put, and load lifters work like they are suppose to. All of this adds comfort and stability to the overall system. I like the burly grab handle, tucked away daisy chain, the trekking pole/ice axe loops and the spacious reservoir sleeve; I also like the ability to tuck away the waist belt when the need arises. The REDWINGS upside down tear drop shape is cool looking, adds balance to the pack and freedom of movement to the user. Lastly, I think having lighter colors inside the packs compartments is a plus and helps you locate items especially in subdued lighting. Personal Preferences but not deal breakers: 1. I personally would prefer at least the next size up buckle on the waist belt which would make it easier to use with gloved hands. 2. The reservoir support hooks on the inside of the main compartment are off to the side and level with the reservoir sleeve top-I think they should be anchored higher in a more vertical orientation, but then I am using an aftermarket reservoir and have found a way to keep my reservoir supported so it stays upright. 3. Add a bellows to upper side pocket to give a little more space to these pockets. All in all as it is, I really like the KELTY REDWING 32 and find it to be a well made well proportioned, sleek, and very user friendly daypack.

  6. Awesome pack for my wife

    Needed a pack with all the features that was sized for a small woman. Love the Kelty Redwing 32. All the right features at the right size! on Jan 23rd 2018

  7. Great Pack, not water-resistant

    Great pack, comfortable with lots of space and pockets that make sense. Extremely happy with the pack itself.
    Only complaint is that it is barely water-resistant. Huge bummer in my line of work, all my belongings feel damp. Not wet, but definitely damp. It's disappointing that they didn't make water resistance a priority seemingly at all, so I guess I have to buy a cover for it. Bummer.

  8. Well designed

    I spent quite a bit of time researching backpacks before making my choice. I am very happy with the Redwing 32. It is large, but doesn't feel huge on my back. The top and side pockets are very handy for those odd items you need to cram somewhere. I really like the hidden daisy chain and handles--they're great for preventing snags. I recommend this item if you need a good sized day pack for school, work, or hiking. on Nov 15th 2017

  9. Best pack by far

    After making at least three different pack purchases, I finally settled and should have known to look no further than Kelty. This pack has plenty of space for gear-usb cables... power pack...small medical kit...laptop...adn leftover space for a few days worth of clothing....I mean this thing can carry anything. The pack is extremely comfortable at the same time. I ate no doubt it will be durable in the time to come as well. on Sep 13th 2017

  10. 1st time with Kelty

    Haven't used yet , looks good upon arriving. I'm thinking it may be a little big for day pack , but liked the features of pole holders & 2 streatchy water bottle holders on Sep 7th 2017
