  1. I'm sorry how much ???

    500 dollars for this bag ??? Come on Kelty isn't that a little overpriced . . . as an outdoor enthusiast, camper, kayaker, hiker believe me I would love for nothing more than to buy products made in the good old USA, but lately here it seems anything USA made is so expensive that most of us either can't afford that kind of price tag, or simply would find the cost ridiculous to pay - Don't get me wrong I'm all for putting Americans to work giving them jobs, but when most people can't afford that kind of price what's the point in making the product ??? even companies such as Maxpedition 5.11 and such don't charge that much on Aug 25th 2018

  2. It's made in the USA

    The reason it's more expensive is that it's American made and not made in China or where ever the $160 versions are made... Bone up on some economics and trade people... Jeez. Thank you Kelty for giving us the option of buying American made gear (not that I could ever afford it at this mark up). I appreciate it tho! on Jun 14th 2018

  3. Sorry anybody home?..

    Noticed This bag is $500 bucks...been that way 2 years? Please tell me who has purchased this?
    Because I feel besides the kelty I had foam in straps deteriorate in about 4 days of use and you must improvise unless you like that feeling of two ropes strapped to 70lbs around your neck. ..

  4. Why so expensive? Is it a special edition or something?

    I own this very same bag in black, and I believe I paid about $160 for it. All the Redwing 50s available now look different though, with a front attachment like more traditional outdoor backpacks. But I can't understand why this one is priced so high on the Kelty Site.

    BTW - I love this bag, its taken me through many camping trips and many countries. Super durable and comfortable...wish it came with a rain cover though.

  5. Responding to other reviewer

    Made in USA vs Asia...
    Federal contracts in GSA mandate this. You have to pay if you want USA made

  6. HOW MUCH!?!

    This seems a bit steep. Why?

    Rated two for value.
