The Kelty Women's PK 50 Pack is a 50 liter backpack built to take the guesswork out of packing your gear. The PK 50 is the glue of Kelty’s TraiLogic Collection, holding all the other (TraiLogic) pieces together in a neat little package. There is a specific spot for everything, your clothes, tent, sleeping bag, food, stove, sleeping pad, and small essentials. As the compartments are roll-closure, the pack is zipperless, which cuts down on weight and ultimately allows for more compression. The 15L front pocket has two compartments, the larger acts as a stuff sack for your clothing and the smaller holds essentials, like your headlamp. Remove the 15L section and bring it inside your tent at night, which then allows the remainder of the pack to be used on day hikes as an even lighter 35L pack. How nifty, two packs in one! A single aluminum stay transfers the load to your lumbar area and an HDPE frame sheet keeps everything stable. The AirMesh shoulder straps, waistbelt, and backpanel provides ventilation as you heat up on the trail. On the 35L section, there are separate roll-closure compartments for the aforementioned necessities as well as a hidden raincover. The compression wings wrap around and cinch all compartments like a wizard cloak to secure your gear tightly together as you battle against Evil.

2-in-1 (35+15)this is a very well designed pack. the choice of 50L or 35L for back country camping or a day hike is both possible with this pack. the side pockets are so helpful for storing and easy access to your bottle, cameras etc there is also to little slot pockets by the hip straps for you to store your credit card/train ticket in there. the rain cover is right at the bottom of the pack, compact and easy to pull over and keep the pack dry. i've no complaints for this pack. I love the color, material and texture too. I highly recommend this pack to everyone.

Love it but has some downsidesI took this pack on backpacking trips and used it for rock climbing. It's organization is great and really helpful when on the trail. It's a nice size, and I love that it can transition from a 50 to 35L. The removable clothes compartment is a great idea! The downsides are that the top stitching on the tent compartment ripped on my first trip. The padding could be improved for the lower back and shoulders.
