  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
