  1. The Redwing Does It All!

    I'm a backpacking gear junkie, and this pack truly does it all. It gives its user the opportunity to do whatever they'd like as conveniently as possible. There's only one thing I wish this pack had, and that is zippered pockets on the hip belt.

    I've primarily used this as a travel pack, and it easily carries a week's worth of clothes. I absolutely LOVE it's organization! This makes living out of a backpack much easier. I've used this as carry-on luggage with no problem. The aluminum stay and supportive hip belt make carrying this thing around no trouble at all.

    There's only one thing I didn't like so much about this pack, and that is the straps on the hip belt. It is difficult to loosen them once they're tightened around my waist (I'm a size 36). But I'd still give this pack an A for its innovation, organization, durability, and user-friendliness.

  2. Pack holds a lot.

    Very pleased with the size of the pack. I can easily fit enough "stuff" for a 4 to 5 day trip. Also, the material seems to be holding up well but time will tell. I do like the optional laptop pocket but I do wish there were more smaller storage areas hidden throughout the bag. All in all I give it an A. on Oct 3rd 2017

  3. Great bag

    I needed a bag that had ample space to pack everything I needed for work, this bag gave me that and then some, multiple pockets for extra little things and a massive pocket for big bulky items, very comfortable to wear as well. I recommend it to everyone that asks about it. on Aug 29th 2017

  4. Comfortable and unique setup

    A great and very comfortable pack for 2-3 day expeditions. Custom fit back was great and the fit very good. I really liked the slip thru side pocket allowing for long items. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is I wished it had straps or points to carry a sleeping bag or pad on the top of the pack. on Jul 30th 2017

  5. Great Pack!

    4 day backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon. I traveled light but was able to pack all of my gear. Very comfortable. All of the compression straps were clutch. ALSO, I WAS able to use this as my carry on (Virgin and Jet Blue) with no problems. I'm going to Europe next and am also planning to use this as my carry on. Hopefully I can get away with the same deal.

    Overall, great product. Great size. Comfortable.

  6. Color confusion

    I thought the red bag had blue buckles, there not though, they are almost black. It's hard to say in the photo but everyone I showed thought they were blue. Kinda disappointed because that was one of the determining factors for this bag. on May 24th 2017

  7. RedWing 50

    This backpack is awesome for travel! I find it to be pretty comfortable. However, after 4 months of using it I noticed a hole in the front of the bag. I have not done anything extreme and do not know how the hole shaped, however the material is rather thin. on Apr 22nd 2017

  8. This backpack is amazing

    My girlfriend got me this backpack as a gift and we recently took it on a trip to Costa Rica, no complaints at all. It fit all my clothes and gear for a 1 week trip with plenty of room for souvenirs. Definitely looking forward to years of use with this one! on Jun 13th 2016

  9. If you don't have a redwing than you don't have camping bad!

    I have only had a redwing 50 for 6 months and I has suited every need i had from traveling on a plain, to the bus. What even makes it better is that I can go on a hick trip with it, camping made easy. on Jun 5th 2016

  10. Backcounty Photo Bag

    I have been looking for an overnight bag that is good for my camping gear and my camera equipment, and after a few other bags in this size range I am happy to have settled on the Redwing 50. Having it as a panel loader means I can store my heavier camera gear low but still get to it quickly without unloading everything else , and the pass through side pockets fit my tripod and tent poles without worry that they might fall out from some light duty strap.

    I am a very hot person as it is, and was suprised at how comfortable and breathable the backpanel was on my first trip. So far I am loving this bag.
