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 .

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.

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.
Great pack, but can always be improved!

Hey all –
Awesome Bag for the Price, but the Zippers are not Wonderful
12 people found this helpful.
I love everything about this bag, except for the zippers. Come on Redwing… put the big, heavy duty zippers with the locking holes on them so we can lock our gear with simple TSA approved locks. Every serious bag has these and this one does not. Big oversight!
and it held up great to everything we went through

I spent two months in Thailand with just this on my back and it worked perfectly, you really don’t need anything more, and it held up great to everything we went through. the only down side with this bag is that the zippers are just a simple string with a knot so even if i lock the bag someone could easily just untie the whole thing. in the picture i have the purple 40 liter and my husband has the black 44 liter
Great pack and meets carry-on standards

Part of my job is wildfire support and I bought this to take my primary gear with me as a carry-on piece of luggage. I needed a pack to carry a laptop (has a pocket in the main compartment perfect for it), power supply, mouse, memory cards, external card reader, cords, chargers and some clothes, including a set of nomex. This pack has plenty of room for all of my gear…and nearly enough small pockets to put each accessory in its own pocket! To simplify airport security I removed the waist belt and the aluminum stay…both of which are removed and re-installed easily. This pack dimension-wise is just under carry-on size for the airlines, however I was never questioned or asked to put the pack in the size-checking box at the gate. The top pocket, although thin, found a use to hold trail mix and other snacks…this helped on long flights as the top pocket is at the door of the overhead bin with the zipper perfectly accessible. The mesh side pockets for holding bottles are a bit awkward to use, especially if the side pocket is full and you use a shorter bottle, that combination just didn’t work for me. The pack is also rugged, it went through 3 fire camps, numerous tosses into a vehicle and the fine-powdery soil of central Washington…no issues with zippers and after a quick wipe-down looks nearly new. Overall a great purchase and would highly recommend!

I bought this backpack as a gift, but personally I own the 2012 50-liter version of this backpack. Actually this one is even better! First off, this backpack is awesome. Plenty of pockets and space for everything. It is a very well thought out design, so much better than others I’ve seen. To start, the hip clip and the back support bar are removable. This is a key that so many other bags do not have. I don’t like the hip clip when I’m carrying a light load, and the support bars can complicate wearing a large hat or a helmet. Not a problem for this bag, I can interchange the parts I need for the adventure at hand. Smart pockets for all your items, handles to grab where you need them, smooth tie down straps, a chest strap, this bag has it all. What makes this bag better than my 50L is the top loading zipper design. The older one has a normal zipper. This was perfect for my friend who needed a backpack he could stick his tennis rackets in, or anything longer that never seems to fit in a backpack. Also the 44 is a little smaller than the 50 which can be a bit bulky. All in all, you can’t go wrong with either backpack. My 50 has all but retired my 90 for all my backpacking needs, except for those longer multi-week excursions into the wilderness. Every time I take this thing to the supermarket they ask, ‘Are you sure all this is going to fit in there?’ And it does. That’s how big and bad this bag is.
First thoughts of a backpack fanatic

This is my initial opinion of the Kelty redwing 44. This is the first Kelty pack I have purchased. I am a huge fan of the Osprey back packs and was a little reserved when purchasing the Kelty. After much research and review reading and since Osprey doesn’t offer a Manta 44, I decided to give the Kelty 44 a chance. So to make a long story longer here is my initial thoughts.
