Mike Ruiz, Trailspace.com

  • Summary: This was my first internal frame pack and it has worked great for me. I haven't done anything too rugged with it, just a few weekend trips so far, but I'd be confident taking it anywhere. At over 75 liters it's more than enough space and I've been comfortable with nearly 40 lbs of weight. I would recommend this pack as a good entry-level backpacking pack for someone who wants good features for a great price.
  • Pros: Adjustability, Front and top access points, Great value, Top lid turns into fannypack
  • Cons: Hipbelt is rather large, Mesh side pockets not very useful

  • Excerpt: In addition to the Coyote, I've got a couple of other Kelty packs and love them all.  My one and only beef is that they're on the heavy side and when you're packing 50+ lbs of food and gear, every ounce counts. I have not encountered the same issues some other reviewers have mentioned with the shoulder straps or stitching and I've overstuffed it to the point where other more expensive packs have failed.  I was most impressed that the zippers didn't bust on me.

  • Excerpt: I just returned my second Kelty Coyote. The shoulder straps kept slipping on the first when carrying 35+ pounds. I tried a second and found it to be a design flaw. I'm training to climb Mt. Rainier and did not want to spend my energy cinching straps the entire way up the mountain. The pack was durable, roomy and solid in every other way. They just need to re-engineer the straps..... or maybe my REI store got a bad batch. Fortunately, REI is wonderful about returns.

  • Excerpt: Great pack for the price. I bought this from Dicks with a coupon for around $120-ish. Light enough for the price. Great hip belt with pockets. The external pockets are handy for quick access to rain cover (not included) and miscellaneous items. It has side compartments for tent poles that were nice. I’ve taken it 40 miles on the App Trail and many trips on Kennesaw Mountain and Stone Mountain for testing/training with no issues so far.

  • Excerpt: I bought this pack in early 2010, I forget when exactly, I bought it to replace my old ALICE pack I had been using. I was on a budget, so when I saw this pack at REI for $100 on sale I decided I would give it a try. So I loaded it up with about 25lbs of store weights and wore it around the store for about an hour. It felt pretty good so I bought it.

  • Excerpt: The best value in a backpack, period. There are better packs, but they are more expensive and they are all overpriced. This backpack is superior to all packs in its price range, all less expensive packs and even some more expensive backpacks. A smart choice and at 4750 cubic inches, it's probably the largest pack most people will ever require.

  • Excerpt: i've had this pack for 5 years and it kicks ass, i've have been around the world three times with it, and bring it every year i go fishing in alaska with very few problems. you can fill it to the top (my record is 60 lb of gifts) or strap it down (had it down to 15 lb on my last trip) way easy. the easy access in the front is a life saver, and when you get the straps adjusted right you can run, bend, squat, turn, damn near do cartwheels in the thing.
