User Review: Kelty Redwing 50
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $60 (on sale)
This pack is a solid performer for a one- or two-day excursion. It has good capacity and a lot of useful features.
- Water bladder compatible
- Maybe a bit heavy
I got the M-L sized one. I am 6'2", with a long torso and it fits me well, altough I am definitely on the outer limits of the size range.
I drink a lot of water, so i like that it has a place for a water bladder and also has two external water bottle pouches. The main compartment is a good size and the smaller pockets are nicely placed and sized. Little details that this pack has are very cool—even if I do not use them. I like that there was effort made to make this a very versatile pack.
I got the pack on sale so I did not have a color choice and ended up with Apricot, i.e. orange. It would not have been my first choice, but it has grown on me and it is a practical color, I suppose, should an emergency situation arise.
Overall, I am happy with this pack and would recommend it.
