  1. Red??????

    It is a great pack, except for the color. Red, why red? Make it earthy colors. on Mar 2nd 2017

  2. Love the red color

    I love the red color. It harkens back to the 1970's model D4 pack; but that one was really red; this is more muted. I would like to see pouch pockets on the hip belt. LOVE Kelty . . . THE ORIGINAL. on Jan 27th 2017

  3. Terrible color

    I'm in the market for a new bug out bag. If the Trekker 65 was available in more subdued colors I'd pull the trigger on it right now. Otherwise I guess the search continues.

  4. First pack ever

    I've always loved the outdoors and from my ruckmarches in the army I spent months searching for a pack for my personal hikes and after all my research I decided with the kelty trekker 65 and I couldn't be happier I love the pack I can load this thing up with weight and because of how it carries I can do 10 mile hikes with ease I love my trekker 65 on Dec 27th 2016

  5. Green please

    I'd very much like to buy one of these packs for serious backpacking, but OMG not in RED.

    Forest green, please, and you have a new customer.

  6. DANGER RED!!!!

    I am first sad to see a quality company that makes quality products start to go the way of the Dinosaurs. The only color that this comes in is Danger Red. When I go out and commune with nature, I like to blend in with nature. Not be visible for 18 miles away because my pack sticks out like a sore thumb. I cannot understand what companies are thinking with all of the Extremely bright colors. I go to nature to be one with nature, so I like colors that blend in with my surroundings. As the pack goes it is a Kelty, what more needs to be said. Kelty packs rock, except for the color. on Dec 21st 2016

  7. Most comfortable pack I ever had.

    My wife and I ditched our Internals three years ago for a Kelty Trekker 65 and Kelty Tioga 5500. We can wear our Kelty's, loaded to the max, all day long without shoulder pain. Could not do that with any of the several models of Internal frames we tried over the years. on Dec 5th 2016

  8. suprised how light

    I have been using an internal frame for my hiking with our troop. Bought this pack for some of the larger boys in the troop to use, but had the opportunity to use it myself. Loads easier, carries lighter and much cooler on my back!
    would like it in a green, brown or tan color......

    Thank you

  10. A+++

    love this pack. someday everyone will have external frame packs - the internal frame packs are a fashion statement IMHO. OK there are some things i might add. i think it needs more webbing attachment points on the back. i think it might benefit from some small pockets on the hip belt. we need this in a 75 and 85 size. these are quibbles really. my brother has a gregory baltoro and he is thinking of ditching it for a kelty external frame. Ha! on Jul 4th 2016
