    It is very tough and durable.

    The bag is slightly heavier than I expected, but I hope that extra weight will show in its durability.

    I have had one of these backpacks for about 6 years, it is great.

    I've used this bag for 3 to 6 day backpacks, often with a heavy load (60 - 70 pounds). It is very adjustable/comfortable, and has the features that I am looking for: outside water bottle pockets, side pockets (for stuff I use during a hike), a removable and large fanny pack (the top compartment), a large top compartment (also for stuff I use on the hike, like maps, jacket, gloves, and fleece cap). Few backpacks have these features anymore, at any price. The cons are few, and are the reason it doesn't receive a rating of 5: heavier than I'd like, and mine has been damage-prone. Currently, it has 3 failure points: 2 holes in the bottom, one side pocket zipper is broken, and both mesh water bottle pockets have massive tears in them. I sent it back to Kelty for them to repair, and all 3 repairs failed almost immediately on the first time I used the pack after repair.

    I have had one of these backpacks for about 6 years, it is great. Nothing has broken on it yet, it has more than enough space even for longer stays outside, and it is comfortable even when fully packed. If it is within your price range, I would recommend it. Note: You may want to consider getting a rain cover for it as it as well.

    Color Name: Khaki Verified Purchase
    I bought this pack for an outdoor class i am taking. I was really trying to budget my purchases and a pack was one of the most expensive things on my list. I could have easily spent 300 on a good pack but i am not made of money. Im not an experienced backpacker but for the money I think this is a great choice. I think i got mine for 117 with free shipping. People said it wouldn't be as comfortable as more expensive packs but i really don't think it is uncomfortable; besides I am personally willing to sacrifice a little comfort to save 200 dollars. If you are all about the most comfortable pack with all the bells and whistles then by all means spend 300+ dollars but if your strapped for cash and still want to experience the great outdoors then this pack will do the job. I like the simplicity of it, the 2 side pockets are great to carry 2 1 liter nalgenes and keep your pack balanced. I also love the color scheme of grey and Khaki, I am really happy i chose this over the navy and grey pack. Honestly for the price I don't think you can really beat this pack.

    I was excited to use my new Kelty Red Cloud 6650 backpack. Now that I've used this pack on two separate trips, both fairly rigorous, here are my observations.

    Positive observations: 1. huge capacity with nice compression straps, 2. good pocket space on both sides, 3. strong zippers, 4. quality fabric, 5. overall good structure, 6. i like the central "handle," which is helpful in moving around this large pack at a campsite, stowing in a truck, etc.

    Negative observations: 1. poor placement of hydration pocket (too far down inside main storage compartment) 2. weight-bearing belt is well constructed but the "buckle"/fastener slips too easily, 3. shoulder straps are not padded enough or wide enough for the size of this pack (and the expected/probable weight of a fully packed backpack), 4. lack of integrated rain cover, 5. heavier pack (empty) than expected.

    I rate this 3 stars, and that is a bit generous. I am comparing this Kelty to another brand-new backpack I purchased for my son--a Hi-Tec ODYSSEY 65. To my surprise, it is every bit as good as my Kelty, and has many perks that mine doesn't: better height adjustment, better buckles, integrated rain cover (and it comes with the backpack), sternum buckle w/ integrated safety whistle, etc. The zippers are NOT as good as the Kelty ones. Nevertheless, the Hi-Tec Odyssey 65 is a 4.5 star backpack, especially for the price.

    If I could give something 4 1/2 stars this would be it. I've owned it for a few years. It has never failed me. I have a more expensive one from REI as well. I'm 51 and heading out to Wyoming wilderness next summer. I was inspired to write this because I'm thinking VERY SERIOUSLY about taking the Kelty over the other one on an 8/9 day trip. Why? Well the other one is great, but on a hike of this duration it's nice to put things in an easily accessible pocket for during the day access. This Kelty has plenty of pockets (I don't even know the number), my other one has 3 access points only. Second it's the capacity - taking a lot of crew gear - this one can handle the volume better that any bag I've seen, tested or tried. Third, it's pretty darn comfortable. The extra weight is not only in the materials - some of the shoulder and stomach cushioning seems better that more expensive but lighter bags.

    The materials are generally sturdy and look like they can take a beating. Lot's of scouts in my troop took these on all the training hikes and to Philmont - they performed great. Getting ready to go again with some of the same boys all of them will be using the same Kelty's again.

    Unless you are in a situation where every ounce counts - you simply can not beat the price performance combination of this Kelty. Darn, just by writing this I know I'm going with the Kelty. And that's the only downside, I'll need to lose a couple more pounds myself to make up for the extra weight.
