  • Excerpt: Got a Kelty Red Cloud 5600 at the local thrift store just off the University Campus. It will be my winter pack. Holds everything I need and then some! Great fit and great weight distribution. I really like it so far!

  • Excerpt: Bought a Red Cloud 5600 for a 5 night trip to Clear creek in the Grand Canyon. Plenty of room, rode on my back like a dream. Easy to get to anything in the pack at anytime w/o unloading the entire pack. Pack weighed 50 lbs at the start. Trained with it all summer carrying 55 lbs of water and weight up and down the mountains near home, looks like new. Easy to fit to my back and stayed comfortable. It's tough, convenient, well-built, love it.

  • Excerpt: Likes: The pack is great. I am 6 ft 175, and it molded to my body perfectly. Weight was distributed on my hips well, and there were plenty of pockets. I like the Velcro feature on the side pockets, which makes it easy to carry tent poles. The pack has compression straps which makes it easy to make the pack smaller in width. Overall I am very satisfied with this pack.

  • Excerpt: This is my third Kelty backpack. I started with a D4 way back in the 70's. This Red Cloud replaces the 10-year old Red Cloud that's beginning to show signs of stress. I needed the volume for bulky loads -- the compression straps allow you to reduce the volume when you don't need all that space. I like pockets on my backpacks and this one has three usable pockets, plus two tiny ones on the hipbelt, plus the lid is another "pocket".

  • Excerpt: I have been using this pack for two years now and it's awesome. The back support and lumbar system make this pack comfortable, and when I'm on long hikes I sometimes forget it's even there. I've used it for a lot of trips ranging from a long day hike, to 3 day outings and even 5 day outings and small expeditions and it has proven itself time and time again. Durable and holds up great (as long as the owner takes care of their gear).

  • Excerpt: Top choice, grade A for durability and function. This thing's been stuffed with 10 days of clothes and gear, ransacked by airport security, and strapped on for a day hike through Valley of Fire (AZ) and various Midwest climates. This bag is great for car camping and hiking to camp, just the same. I love how organized everything stays even when I half-hazardly yank clothes out from the front and bottom.

  • Excerpt: This is my third backpack. I like it very much. Once I learned how to adjust the back pad and shoulder straps it was like a dream. I carry around 50+ pounds and find it works well with heavy loads. I like the extra pockets so that I don't have to dig deep into my backpack to find the little things that I carry. The pack is very comfortable. I think if I was to change things, it would be two things.

  • Excerpt: Big pack, well constructed. I took it on several hikes and campouts. I liked the ability to store stuff in different pockets. The suspension system and internal frame fit just right after adjusting. Very rugged and dependable. Not the lightest, but then it is a BIG pack.
