User Review: Kelty Red Cloud 5400
Price Paid: My mom bought it while I was a Scout... can't remember.
This is an absolutely phenomenal pack. I've taken it on two Philmont 12-day treks, one trip to Boundary Waters and dozens of other backpacking and overnight trips.
On the latter Philmont Trek in 2004, I was able to fit approx. 80 lb of gear in and on my pack. Due to a couple of slackers, I had to carry a full 2.5 gallon collapsible water jug. I strapped the handle to my sternum strap and kept on truckin. That gives you the idea of the materials Kelty uses. Carrying 20 lbs on a 1/2 inch webbing might not fly with just any other manufacturer.
I haven't had an issue with seams breaking, holes being worn in the material, flaws in any buckles or webbing. I did have the displeasure of dropping it in the lake while unloading it from a canoe, everything inside was dry as a bone.
I have no qualms taking this pack anywhere I need to go.
