Product Description

The best-selling pack in the Kelty lineup is also the best-selling pack in the outdoor industry. For good reason. Highly utilitarian, the Redwing has all the features and organization needed for simplified travel or an overnight on the trail. With a 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 Scherer Cinch(tm) waist buckle will help customize the fit and keep the load close to your center of gravity.. Body Fabric: 420D Polyester Ball Shadow. Reinforcement Fabric: 450D Polyester Oxford. Suspension: Light beam(tm) Fixed Suspension System .

It's a well made bag with strong materials and good workmanship.
Gordon
I'm using it for a nonstop five week trip, and there is plenty enough room for everything I need - Including a tent.
John Molsick
The pack also has a great variety of pockets and the main compartment is more than accessible.

My wife and I both purchased the Kelty 50-liter models for a three week+ trip to China, Vietnam and Cambodia. My wife's was the model made for women.
We moved a lot, never staying in the same city/town/village for more than three nights. We needed something to hold our clothes but not too large to be cumbersome, comfortable to carry, able to fit overhead bins as airline carry-ons, overhead on trains, easy to carry on subways, buses, taxis and even tuk-tuks. We also wanted tough, smart construction with easy access to compartments rather than a top-loading trail pack as we often lived out of it without unpacking. Comfort of carry was a pre-requisite.
The Kelty Redwing did all these things very well. It is now our key piece of travel luggage. We had previously a "travel backpack" from a discounter (e-xxxx) that had great access but was impossible to carry any reasonable distance due to pain and fatigue. It was basically a suitcase with straps and was totally unacceptable and virtually unusable. We invested in Kelty after scouring through reviews which gave this model many props.
Never will we pay baggage fees or drag roller luggage over cobblestone streets or wet, dirty streets. Though my wife was skeptical at first, she too is now in agreement about backpack traveling which is great for me because now I don't have to haul her wardrobe which she doesn't wear half of around the world.
Great product, simple, rugged and good-looking with smart accessories, easy and comfortable to carry. Looks like it's going to last for years and we are going to put it through its paces.
Extremely pleased with our purchase. Highly recommend for like-minded individuals.

I recently bought this bag and wanted to come on here to answer some of the questions i had and could not find the answers to before the purchase so here they are.
The hip straps ARE removable.
There are NO holes in the metal zipper to lock them aside from using the strings attached.
The metal spine IS removable.
There is also a hard plastic backing to this that IS also removable, however if you take the metal spine out as i did this is very handy to still have in as it keeps the packs structure.
CONTRARY to what Kelty say, The Regular rain cover will fit a fully loaded Med/Large pack completely, almost perfectly. (however if you intend to attach more things to the outside of the pack it will not fit.
You can finesse the straps so that they don't stick out and dangle so much as well if you plan to be throwing this on a lot of trains and planes.

All that said, i purchased this pack for a backpacking trip through some countries and had read that it was only a 2-3 day pack. Well, i don't know what people are putting into their packs for 3 days but i fit a solid weeks worth of clothing in here with extra socks, tanks, and undies taboot! not to mention all the other amenities you would take ( thin raincoat, pack raincover, camera, power converters, cologne, locks, toothpaste.etc.) and i still had some room to spare for a souvenir or shirt to bring back.

I wrote this 'book' in hopes of alleviating the concerns of anyone else who is thinking of buying this pack but like me wanted more info before spending the money!! Its a great - and roomy- pack!

I purchased the backpack over a month ago but had to wait for a friend to bring it with her on her return to Uganda. It finally arrived and I am very pleased. I am a missionary in East Africa and have made a couple of week trips in Africa since I arrived in 2011. Through a search in Amazon and other web sites I found exactly what I needed. It is the perfect size (and it is comfortable and the pockets are easily acessible) for the various means of transportation one has to take and traveling light is a must. I am looking forward to using it on my next trip, it will be much better than carrying a suitcase and a small backpack.

This bag was great for my recent trip to South America. It has a big main compartment which fit about 4-5 pairs of shorts, 4 pairs of pants, about 10-12 shirts, toiletry kit, and undergarments. The side pockets also fit a pair of sneakers. The top compartment also had room for smaller items. When the waist strap, pectoral strap, and shoulder straps were locked in, I felt I was able to move around endlessly. A zipper on the bottom or if the main compartment zippers opened all the way for full access would make this 5 stars. Overall though, I am glad I bought this bag and look forward to using it again on my next trip.

In planning our trip to Peru I looked at several brands of backpacks. I looked at Kelty's, Osprey, REI, Field and Stream, Gregory and The North Face. The fit and finish on the Kelty is comparable to brands twice as expensive. The single aluminum bar keeps weight off your back and evenly distributed on your hips. I was able to pack a TON of stuff in this thing (think family of 6 in Peru for 3 weeks with 3 backpacks...). I've had an old kelty 45L backpack (similar to redwing) since the late 90's that has held up extremely well and it seems like I can pack twice the gear in the new 50L. This backpack is so compfy I'm thinking of buying another for my wife. Nothing really negative I can say. If I had to pick something I might choose a different color to hide dirt more. and I really like the metal 'thingys' on the front zipper compartment; they're only on the front zipper compartment and I would like them on all the zippers... You won't regret this pack.
