I bought this because I like the ability to tailor the pack for the type and length of use. Although it was more expensive I have replaced three other packs with this one.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Kelty Cloud Backpack uses Spectra fabric with Kevlar thread reinforcements to maintain durability while keeping a low 4lb 7oz weight. Load up the massive 86L of cargo space for the approach to base camp, then take off the three large cargo pockets to save weight and cut down on space for an alpine-style push. You can also remove the lid and waist-belt to shave even more weight from this Kelty pack when you're on a highly technical climb where grams count. Kelty added gear loops to hold your crevasse-rescue kit during glacier travel, and a well-padded suspension system to keep you comfortable when you're really loaded down.

- Backcountry Outlet

A quintessential climbing pack, the Cloud features Levitators for massive loads and removable pockets for versatility. It's made with nearly indestructible spectra fabric.

- Altrec Outdoors

This innovative pack from Kelty's Ultralight Series is not too small, not too big--it's just right! Modular components allow custom weight and size! This pack series can be stripped down to just a plain packbag with shoulder straps, weighing in at just over a pound. Load-transferring, slow-memory foam hipbelt molds to your body; accepts two gear loops to carry extra gear. LightBeam™ stays weigh half of what traditional stays weigh, yet still supply the stiffness needed for support. Compression straps wrap around pack to pull the load as close to your body as possible, increasing stability. Top pocket adjusts in height and opens with single buckle for easy access. Suspension system features a removable backpanel and frame stays so you can adjust the support you need for different trail conditions. Four-point haul loops and ski lash patches accept gear loops and combine for ample gear room. Spectra® endures up to 500-lbs. breaking strength; this fabric is so tough, not even dye can penetrate it--available only in white. Laminated thread will never rot from UV, chemicals or molds, and along with Kevlar® top-stitching for strength, ensures a long life for this pack. Weight varies depending on which accessories you choose to add for any given outing; Note: weight specification is for bare bag only.
