Designed specifically to work perfectly with a woman's body, the Kelty Women's Red Cloud Backpack has a capacity worthy of week-long trips and helps you handle the trek in comfort. The PerfectFIT suspension system offers on-body adjustment to accommodate all body types and eliminate the need for retail-assisted measurements, not to mention it allows you to carry heavy loads mile-after-mile in comfort. Kelty also added dual Lightbeam aluminum stays for additional stability with heavy loads. The top lid removes so you can use it as a sling pack during short side trips from base camp, and the zippered front panel allows quick-and-easy access to layers. Kelty integrated a zippered pocket at the top lid for electronics, zippered side pockets for snacks, a large front pocket with organization for books and layers, and a pocket at the waist belt for energy gels. This backpack also features straps to lift loads, stabilize the waist belt, secure the shoulder straps at your sternum, and compress smaller loads for a secure hike.
