Amazon Price: N/A (as of March 1, 2017 5:54 pm –
The best-selling pack in the Kelty lineup is also the best-selling pack in the outdoor industry. For good reason. Highly utilitarian, the Women's 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 Women's 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 women's specific 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..

Perfect for Carry-On

I did a lot of research before deciding on a pack to bring with me on a college course trip to Peru. We will be living in various hostels and locations for two weeks. When flying, I always have a fear of my checked luggage getting lost, delayed, or damaged, so this time I wanted to bring all my baggage as carry on (and I figured my trip would be much more enjoyable without constantly hassling with a bunch of stuff). I’m planning on bringing this pack as well as an over-the-shoulder bag onto the plane.
The backpack is a good, sturdy backpack

I love this backpack! Very well made, holds quite a bit. I packed for an 8 day trip using just this pack and was still able to comfortably carry it. It fits under the seat on an airplane. Looking forward to taking this on a hike!
Perfect for Backpacking Across the World

I lived off this trusty backpack for 5 months in Europe. It fits RyanAir’s carry-on size measurements beautifully. I was on the road and the backpack was incredible. Unlike a top loading bag, it zips all around so you don’t have to take everything out.Of course, use packing cubes to maximize the efficiency of this bag. Truly,if you plan to live off a backpack that can do it all, this one is it.
Good Travel and Day Hiking Backpack

I’m planning for a 3 week Western Europe travel via Eurorail. I finally decided on Kelty Redwing 40L. I like it – plenty room to store all my items. The black color looks good and matches to my black and gray color scheme perfectly. I tried other colors and they seem too loud. For past few weeks, I walked my dogs for 2 to 3 hours each day carrying fully loaded Kelty ~20 lbs (no, my pups won’t be with me in Europe). The hip belt really helps to distribute the weight. Before Kelty, I was using a backpack with no hip belt which caused aching shoulders in no time. Kelty has a good back ventilation, but my back still gets sweaty. Next time, I will look for a better back ventilation system. For my needs, Kelty will satisfy moderate walks in London, Paris, Rome, etc in Sept/Oct temperature. Hence, this is a good day-hiking backpack in cool months. Kelty has good straps and nice setup to fine tune to your body. After you-tubing on how to wear a backpack, I see that Kelty’s strap system is excellent and very easy to adjust. I really like the hip cinch setup. I can make the hip belt tighter to distribute the weight to the hip. This allows to give gap in my back for ventilation. Previously I tightened the should straps too much and made my shoulders ache but also blocked back from ventilating.

Took it on a 2 week Europe trip & passed the carry on test. Stuffed to the max, weighted close to 20 lbs. i did not need another bag but my purse.
Choose this backpack!

I purchased this bag for a two week trip to Japan where I would be traveling around on 3-4 day trips. I chose this backpack after extensive review reading on multiple websites, trying on different backpacks at camping stores, and nail biting over which backpack to choose. At the time I had pretty bad back problems and needed something I could easily manage while carrying several days worth of clothes, a pair of extra shoes, toiletries, Ereader, camera, snacks, water bottle, etc. I also didn’t want a bright orange or blue bag (for what I consider to be obvious reasons). This is the first travel backpack that I have purchased since I usually travel with just a regular roller bag that stays parked in one location.
You can walk fine with them in

My one huge gripe is that every type of bottle pops out of the cup holders – nalgene, camelback, disposable, you name it. You can walk fine with them in, but the minute you swing it off your back, no matter how carefully, things start flying. I can’t count the times I’ve flung bottles FAR down the aisle on the bus. It’s actually quite bizarre. Other than that, the pack is great. It holds all of my massive law school books, laptop, chargers, lunch, gym shoes, etc., without a problem. I would love to figure out a solution to the horrible cup holders, though.

I got this with the idea to use it both as a travel backpack and as a pack for multi-day hikes. I’ll review how it worked on an upcoming 5-day hike in an update, but thought I should first go over some initial impression stuff I’ll likely forget later.
