  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Awesome bag

    I purchased this bag to bring with me to Belize while I go for the peace corps. There is so much room in the bag and promotes easy access to reach all the way to the bottom without taking everything out. I'm so excited to explore the world with the Redwing 50! Thanks kelty ! on Apr 23rd 2016

  8. Customer Review

    I purchased a Black Redwing 50 just a little over 5 years ago and am still using it now.and have used it daily I don't have a vehicle so I would ride my bike and or use public transportation over all it is very durable except for the mesh pockets it has hauled everything groceries gym stuff work stuff you name it .I just bought a 2nd Redwing 50 in a greenish color but I wish I had gotten the blue one the old one still works just a little stinky is all but the cool thing you can remove the frame and stuff and toss it in the wash and let air dry. Any way it is a great buy in my opinion on Jan 20th 2016
