Kelty Coyote 4900
Price Paid: $150
Great Pack! I have owned the Kelty Coyote 4900 for 3 years now and have had absolutely zero problems.
The pack is durable with no rips or torn seams. The design is condusive to both hiking and cross country skiing. The front main compartment access zipper makes orgaiizing and finding gear in the main pocket a breeze.
My only minor dislike is the lack of hip belt pockets for essentials like compass, knife, GPS etc.
Price Paid: $200-$300
I first bought this backpack in 2007 and have used it every summer since then. The Coyote 4900 is an incredibly reliable pack. It is easy to adjust to using this pack every day or almost never.
Some of the great features of this pack are: its brain becomes a fannypack, which is useful if you're packing to a backcountry campsite and then doing a day hike; this pack has a fail safe way to keep water out by use of two adjustable strings at the top; among other things this pack will adjust to whatever you need it to do, by that i mean you can use it simply as a suitcase traveling from airport to airport or train to train, but it can adjust to becoming a beaten down pack that doesn't fail.
With the right organization, this backpack can sustain you for several weeks.
If you are thinking about getting your first backpack, you should definitely get the Kelty Coyote 4900.

This is a great female backpack. The back of it hugs a small back and provides adjustment cords on the shoulders and waist...it is very comfortable and roomy. Great for light packers, or hikers that intend to take a long/challenging hike within a short period of time - light packer's dream!
