Trekker 3950

rated 4 of 5 stars You can still find well-made Trekkers in like-new condition online if you're a smart shopper. Before Kelty switched to polyester materials and a thinner hipbelt, this pack represented a practical, comfortable on-trail option for people hauling heavy loads. For a Boy Scout, especially an adult leader or a teenager with the strength of a mule, these packs still represent a good choice. There are now a lot of better options on the market, but they cost more money. I recently purged my outdoor gear… Full review

Salida 1

rated 4 of 5 stars Well made, good materials. Very nice looking. Just received it and set it up indoors. Very easy to pitch. A major complaint: no fly vent. With the high walls, the lack of upper fly vent will make this tent hot in summer. I wanted a high wall solo for early spring and late fall, so it will work for me.

Flyway 43

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the Kelty Flyway 43, which is a travel friendly daypack based off of the popular Kelty Redwing 44 pack. Like the Redwing pack, the Flyway is panel loading and has many features for organization. Additionally, there are travel friendly features like a padded laptop sleeve, rain cover and a separate bottom compartment. Features Size and design: The pack has a volume of 43L and is carry-on size. The pack uses durable 420D polyester material Panel zip main compartment and bottom zipper access:… Full review

Camp Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars Have two. Very comfortable. A very good low priced pillow. Takes up a bit of room even when in stuff sack. The less bulky option is an inflatable pillow. Like all of my Kelty products, well made at a great price. Full review

Trekker 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very well finished and sturdy. The load lifter shoulder straps are a big deal and make this pack work for you. Back ventilation is second to none. The hip belt convinces you that you can load more into the pack and onto the frame than you should; only your knees will remind you otherwise. That same hip belt is way easy to adjust to your shape. If you're going to haul everything you'd like to have on any given stage of the PCT this pack will serve you well. Be cautious though as this pack will allow… Full review
