  1. Best upgrade by far!!

    Fit my pack great and is extremely comfortable !! I would definitely recommend this for an upgrade! on Sep 12th 2018

  2. Works on LK35, with a bit of jury rigging.

    Bought this to try and make my old Swedish LK35 pack a bit more comfortable. As the description states, it took some creativity to get it on correctly, but once I got it it's super comfortable, great padding and holds weight very well. As other reviewers have said though, this did not include the clevis pins necessary for attachment, I didn't need them anyway since the LK35 doesnt have any attachment holes in the frame (I ended up just clipping the belt's clevis hole to a strap attachment point on the frame with an old buckle), but if you're in a hurry I'd advise going ahead and getting some pins at the hardware store before this arrives so you don't have to wait for shipping again if they're not included. Not sure if this is just oversight during shipping or the description is incorrect. Regardless, handy belt and definitely the best option for upgrading old external frame packs without many aftermarket options. on Sep 11th 2018

  3. Fits my 1970s exterior frame Jansport perfectly!

    My 40 year old pack is in excellent condition, but the hipbelt was thin and hard. I was a skeptical that this would fit, but it fits perfectly! The installation was very easy. It would be nice if Kelty included instructions. A young fella made a YouTube vid and he installed it upside down. :-)

    Thank you Kelty for making this available. My only complaint is that the clevis pins were not included.

  4. Upgrade your "old school" Kelty backpack with this hipbelt!

    Fit perfectly on my 1960's Kelty B4 and 1970's D4 external frame backpacks along with the.

  5. Works on old Camp Trails Backpacks, need pockets on the belt, no clevis pins included

    I did a write up on how the shoulder straps worked on my almost 30 year old Camp Trails backpack.

    The hip belt also worked. Installation was really simple. Just pay attention to how you take the old one off and do your best to mimic installation of this belt.

    The vertical straps seemed like something extra. I wasn't sure what to do with them so for now I just tied them to the horizontal support above the belt. I might try using some nylon slide buckles to hold it in place, but only if I find i need it.

    Anyway, after the simple installation, I tried the pack on and I could immediately tell the difference. There's so much more padding and the belt grabs the waste so much better than the old one.

    The only thing missing from this hip belt would be the addition of some pockets to keep small items like snacks (energy bars) or phone/camera. These could be zippered or just pockets with elastic tops. I might try to make some.

    Lastly, the description says that this belt "Includes necessary clevis pins (2)." I did not find them in the shipment; it may have just been an oversight. Fortunately I did not need them.

  6. Great replacement for old hipbelt

    This is actually an upgrade with better padding than my old hipbelt on Jul 23rd 2018

  7. Great fit.

    The shoulder straps and hip belt brought new life to my old pack. Looks great fits great. Thanks. on Jul 3rd 2018

  8. Much Better with New Hipbelt!

    I recently bought a used Kelty Yukon that had an old-style hipbelt that I was just not able to get as snug as I like. This new hipbelt has all the same attachments so it was a breeze to replace the old one. The pull-to-center tightening system is perfect and now the pack rides comfortably on my hips! on Apr 11th 2018

  9. What a saver.

    It is a perfect match and easy to instal. on Mar 27th 2018

  10. Thank you Ketly. This belt is a God Send.

    I have a vintage (circa 70s) REI external frame pack and my treasured possession--a vintage Alpenlite external frame (also circa 70s). The latter has the patented stand up design that Alpenlite perfected. The REI pack belt finally gave out on the Lost Coast. The Alpenlite was just getting stiff and brittle.

    I purchased the Trekker 65 replacement Shoulder Straps and Hip Belt for both packs. I purchased the Mesh Back for the REI pack. The components fit the REI pack like they were made for it. It is now better than ever. I had to angle the mounting portion of the Hip Belt on the Alpenlite as the frame design is different, but I was easily able to make it work. I was even able to add stub straps to the top frame of both and connect the load leveling straps from the Trekker 65 harness. This is a feature I never had on these packs and a great improvement.

    The price, functionality and quality of these Kelty straps absolutely saved two of my favorite all packs. They will outlive me now.

    On both orders, I did not immediately receive the clevis pins and rings. However, I called in to Kelty both times and they immediately sent them to me--no questions asked.

    Kelty is a great company and I am so glad they continue to put out external frames and the components for them.
