User Review: Kelty Pacific Crest 5000
Price Paid: $60
I used this last year on one overnight hike. We experienced rain and most all the gear was still nice and dry.
The fit is wonderful. I tried several internal frames from various makers such as Ospery, REI, etc. but found this external frame to be just as comfortable or more so and I swear it holds way more than the other comparable internal frames.
Once thing I really like about external frames is you can tie things on the outside of your pack (hopefully light weight such as ropes) easier than with an internal frame. I even took the other brands home and walked several miles with each with a decent amount of stuff before making a final decision.
I'm a tall lady, 5' 11 3/4" and it fit very well with easy adjustments. My hopes are to use this next year in the UP of Michigan for a 2-3 day hike and maybe with my kids during the summer also.
Way to go, Kelty.
P.S. I was fortunate enough to get this at a ridiculous price of $60 as someone had bought it several years back but never had the opportunity to use it.
