We were looking for a Kelty 3500 for our son who is leaving for Afghanistan in Jan. The 3500 was sold out and would not be back in time for before he leaves so he looked at the 3500. We had it sent to his house, and he received it exactly when he was supposed to. After he took it out he told me it was exactly what he needed. It would be making everything so much easier for him to have a backpack that would hold everything safely. My son talked to a lot of friends that have taken Kelty backpacks to Iraq and Afghanistan 2 and 3 times and they are still in great shape so I knew that I did not want anything less for him. I will post back if he tells me anything else.

this pack is amazing it has just enough room to fit all of my hiking gear for Colorado winter and summer together! the fabric is really durable and the packs design is like no other. in side there are 3 frames to give the pack a really supportive feel. it can fit two big hydration blatters but instead i use the set up to hook up my pump water filter and a water bottle so i can purify water quickly into my pack without even having to open it! there are compression stapps all over to keep weight centered. i have 2 rei packs, a 30 and 80 liter and also a 90 liter kelty and a small north face, but this pack is with out a bout my go to pack for ever thing like skiing, hiking, camping, and school. i love this pack!
Excellent, multi-purpose bag!

I love this bag. It’s extremely comfortable and durable. I generally use it for weekend rucking in the Patapsco area of Maryland. Usually I’ve got a 3l Source hydration pouch and a 25lb brick pack (which I custome fit to the internal radio box), but when I’m not rucking for excersise, I just carry whatever I need. I’ve taken it camping (as a three-day bag), and I’ve used it as a carry-on for weekend trips.

Comfortable, and can carry everything I need for like a week. I use it primarily for photo excursions. Compatible lens bags to hang on the outside, water bladder, MREs and clothes on the inside. Solar charger hanging off it, set of sticks and a tent mounted to it. I. Love. This. Bag.
For a tactical pack this size they did a great job keeping the weight down
If you’re a minimalist, this thing holds a ton. Typical top notch Kelty build. For a tactical pack this size they did a great job keeping the weight down.

I am completely satisfied with this backpack. It has plenty of storage space and although it is black and that would be hotter in my locale, it was over half the price of the more wilderness friendly tan and camo ones for some reason. BUT the world didn’t force me into roughing it (yet) and filling it with survival gear and facing zombies. But the night is young! I can’t give it 5 stars because I haven’t put it to the true test of living out of it indefinately. I did take it on a couple of hikes and it was great to be able to carry everyone else’s stuff?!?
