The hydration sleeve is a dual-use pocket that can carry a laptop without worries. LightBeam™ single aluminum stay and Dynamic AirFlow back panel keep your load stable and comfortable.

There isn't much I can say that hasn't been said in 12 pages of reviews, so I'm going to keep it short.
1. I have walked over 15,000 miles wearing this backpack. Needless to say, the perfect fit system does the job. If this pack isn't comfortable to you, you're adjusting it improperly - Watch a video or get help.
2. This is the best backpack you will ever own. Especially if you're looking for a pack in the 40-65L range. I've not had a 65L pack that can hold as much as the Redwing 50, while also keeping things organized.
2. Over the past 30 years, I've probably owned 400 backpacks. Ever since the original Redwing 50, and this newer counterpart, I've not touched another backpack, save for my Camelbak which I use when I'm not planning on walking all day, or when I know the area well enough that I know I don't need more.
3. It is missing 2 things that could easily be added by Kelty, that I would gladly pay more for if they added.
3a. It needs a rainfly pocket. There is plenty of room to add this in. Osprey has one, even Camelbak's outdoor and biking packs have one.
3b. There needs to be at least one zippered pocket on the waist strap. The Redwing 50 has the thickest waist straps I have ever seen that so not include a pocket. I like my snacks Kelty, add a pocket.
4. If you are looking for a weekend pack, a carry on pack, or are a minimalist packer who doesn't want a 110L backpack or their back for a week or more, buy this backpack. John on Mar 4th 2018
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. Dbo on Dec 30th 2017
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. Eric R. Maschal on Oct 3rd 2017
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. Unknown on Aug 29th 2017
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. William Boger on Jul 30th 2017
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. Alex on Jul 11th 2017
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. Logan on May 24th 2017
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. Unknown on Apr 22nd 2017
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! Paul on Jun 13th 2016
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. Stan on Jun 5th 2016
