Product Description

Highly utilitarian, the Redwing has all the features and organization needed for simplified travel or an overnight on the trail. Full-access U-zipper, the Redwing works both as top loader and a panel loader, depending on whether you have the top compression straps clipped or not, adding convenience to any adventure. Organization is the name of the game for the Redwing with zippered side pockets, zippered stash pocket, large front pocket with organization for small items, and the large pocket on the top of the pack. You'll also stay hydrated for any adventure with the hydration compatible design and the water bottle pockets on the side. When you are on the go, the carry handle makes it easy to grab your pack out of where you've stowed it for your trip. Finally, the Redwing suspension is designed for all day carry comfort. The load is kept off your shoulders and support is provided with the Light Beam(tm) single aluminum stay and HDPE frame sheet. The dynamic Airflow back panel and Air Mesh on the shoulder straps, dual density foam waist belt, and lumbar pad will keep you cool when you are working hard. Finally, the load lifters/stabilizers, hip belt stabilizer straps, sternum straps, and waist buckle will help customize the fit and keep the load close to your center of gravity.

I just wanted to clear up any confusion anyone may have regarding the Hip-Belt. The Hip-belt is removable on the 2013 model. Some people have incorrectly stated that only the 2012 and older models had this feature.

In order to remove the hip belt, you must first remove the aluminum stay (bar), which can be accessed via the main compartment by pulling back the Velcro at the top.

I am a 63 year old woman and carried this pack for six weeks to Asia with pretty much everything I needed....I also had a small day pack that doubled as my purse! Granted I am a light packer and take only what I need. The Kelty Redwing 44 is a comfortable pack and easy to sling on your back. I was hoping it would be small enough that I could use it as a carry-on but it was a little too big for that on the airline that I flew.

Hey all -

I have a Kelty Redwing 50 which is obnoxiously large for car camping. I wanted one a bit smaller though not too much smaller, to tote all my clothes in as well as a journal, maybe a book, my kindle, my phone, some medication, etc. It can also be emptied out into my tent and used mainly for hiking elsewhere (carrying the necessary items for a long day hike for a family of 5) if need be. The Redwing 50 would be too large for that. But anything smaller than the 44 would be too small as I barely fit my clothes in it for a 3-day camping trip (I pack a lot to be on the safe side - and that's just for my clothes alone including sleeping and swimming attire). I also want to know I'll have a good size should I want to take it to Europe. Again the 50 would be too big for that (would hurt my back) and the 40 seems too small. I've read the 44 will go in the overhead area in planes.

I specifically LOVE this blue color. They seem to have discovered the perfect blue that will make both males and females happy. I thought it would be too much of a "boy blue" but not so at all. At the same time I think it's *just* dark enough/masculine enough of a blue to make most men happy. Sorry for the stereotypes.

I almost didn't get this pack because of the complaints people had about losing the 1 or 2 small pockets that zip up (compared to the 2012 model) and the fact that the belt can no longer supposedly be removed (forgot to try), however in a pack this size, the waist belt feels appropriate just hanging out there. I just slung it over one shoulder anyway as I was just toting my clothing from car to tent and the belt ends didn't feel crazy awkward, sticking out a bit as I walked. Who cares - not a deal-breaker for how great the pack is in other ways.

Great Pack!

Top and front loading (really easy to pack and unpack)
Front handle for carrying like a normal bag
Side water pouches and top and side pockets for easy access
Very comfortable carrying all day
Fits everything I could want for a backpacking trip (5-10 days)

Zippers are NOT lockable (common Kelty!!)
Waist strap is not removable (see Tips for useful hack)

When not using the waist belt, loop the straps around the back of the pack and clasp it through the "hammer" loop
To make the front pocket harder to open (so someone doesn't sneak up behind you and steal stuff out of it): use a carabiner and loop through the 2 zipper strings and the front handle

This backpack worked well for my 3 week trip to Italy. It fit the carry-on requirements for the airline. This and a small day-pack handled everything I needed. Aside from the fact that there's no need to check baggage and wait around for your luggage to get spit out on the carousel after your flight, backpacks are much easier to manage then wheeled luggage when moving on foot - especially on stairs and uneven surfaces.

This Kelty 44 was fairly comfortable with lots of space in the main compartment and many smaller pockets for better organization - socks, underwear, t-shirts,etc. Zippers and compression straps all worked well. Waste belt and chest-strap were satisfactory for short term moderate conditions. The handle on the outside of the front compartment is a handy feature.

I'm not sure it would be rugged enough for longer term camping conditions but it worked well for routine travel!

This latest version of the red wing is pitiful compared to the two redwing 3100's I've owned before. I actually bought this direct from Kelly sight unseen after being so pleased with previous models.

I was surprised how lightweight (not in a good way) when I opened up the box. The material is very thin and the inside of my bag started de-laminating within a couple weeks of LIGHT use!

The proprietary buckles are so cheap and thin I broke one before the trip even started. The worst part is there some oddball design that you won't be able to locate a replacement for easily if at all.

Kelly would have done the consumer a favor to use a standard fastex type buckle. Those are very rugged and you can buy replacements almost anywhere. Which is essential if it breaks mid trip. I've also normally carried an extra buckle with me on adventures in case I ever break anything. No luck with finding these buckles.

The design of the body is actually really nice and hugs the body wonderfully. The shoulder straps are barely more than an early 2000's jansport school bag. I wouldn't load this little bag with more than twenty or thirty lbs. My old redwing carried 75lbs like a boss and my how the titans have fallen on this pitiful bag.

Worst part of the bag though in my opinion is the exposed aluminum stay that is exposed sitting directly against your spine. I've had one hit to my back wearing this bag and it hurt!

So In conclusion if your looking for a lightweight pack for stuff like carry on and road trip or tour bus adventures this may work well. I would avoid however if you want a capable outdoor pack you can abuse and put miles on.
