I loved mine, but made the mistake of letting a friend who shall remain nameless, Dolan, borrow it for a trip. He decided that he liked it so much that he would just keep it.…

Overall this is a pretty good pack. I got it as a first backpacking pack a couple years ago, and it has held up pretty great. Make sure you know what its for, and that is not…

For under $20 this compression sack is wonderful. I have a regular size synthetic sleeping bag but since its for -20 temperatures its a little harder to stuff it into most stu…

In one year I've used mine as a windbreak on the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula to block Lake Superior winds, to stop horizontal rain from a micro burst near Wisconsin, to save…

Great for multi-configurations. Held up to 45 mph gusts with steady 35mph winds for 16 hours. Very proud of my choice! You will be also......if you buy it.

Went winter camping, woke up with 4in of snow on tent. Pretty solid, super fast setup, great quality. More of a 3 season, not much insulation when 0 degrees. Tried to put back…

I have been very pleased with this tent. The fly stakes down in a manner that makes it preaty stout in winds. I cannot speak for the durability as i have only used it six time…

About Kelty Pack
They Kelty Pack was born in 1952. Incidentally, so was my mom. Or is that 1958. Whatever. Anyway, that was way back with Dick Kelty made his packs by hand. Just over a decade later, Kelty Packs were ascending the West Ridge of Mt. Everest. Not by themselves, people were carrying them.
Nowadays Kelty makes all kinds of gear for everyone from the first time camper to the experienced backpacker. They've expanded their line of packs like woah, so you can pick up Kelty daypacks like the Redstart and Redtail Packs up to expedition size packs like the Kelty Red Cloud 5600 Pack.
For week-long backpacking adventures, check out the Kelty Red Cloud 90 Pack or the Kelty Coyote 80 Pack for men, or the Red Cloud 80 and Kelty Coyote 75 for women. These packs have capacities over 4500 cubic inches. I guess that lets you carry lots of stuff, which is good because Kelty Pack makes other stuff to carry.
By other stuff, I mainly mean tents, sleeping bags, and camping accessories like lanterns and stuff sacks. I tried to keep popsicles in my Kelty Lakota 65 once. I think you can guess how that turned out. Anyway, Kelty makes backpacking tents, like the Kelty Gunnison 1.1 Tent, and family camping tents like Kelty Parthenon 8 Tent and Kelty Buttress 6 Tent. Check out Kelty shelters like the Shadehouse, too, to spruce up your campsite.
Kelty's got sleeping bags, too. You've got your choice of down or synthetic fill, and cold weather bags for down to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (I had to google how to spell Fahrenheit), and warmer weather bags rated to 40 degrees.
