I have the 2009 model and have used it bi-weekly over the past year. The Kelty Redwing 3100 is my go-to pack for day use or up to three days in the field. I am 6' with a 21.5" torso length. This is one of the best fitting packs I have found in the price range. I also like the way it distributes weight to the belt. My typical overnight pack weight is about 35 pounds or less depending on the weather. The Redwing 3100 handles the load comfortably.
I have also used the Kelty Redwing 3100 quite often on bouldering day-trips with my 17 year old son in northern Arizona. He carries his crash pad and a few essentials, and I carry our day-camp gear (~ 20 pounds) in the Redwing 3100.
Based on price and serviceability, I would definitely recommend the Kelty Redwing 3100 to a friend.
