Excerpt: I love this pack. I have owned it for two years and abused it in every way possible. It has been on probably around 20 backpacking trips including the Grand Canyon, Superstition Wilderness, Hawaii, and the San Francisco Peaks.

Excerpt: I bought this pack for my first big Russia trip in 2001. Now the inside is flaking off and I can't find anything that might match its phenomenal track record. I have backpacked around Europe and Russia with this pack for months at a time, hiked through the Olympics, the Dolomites, and in Hawaii,...

Excerpt: I have the 2009 model and have used it bi-weekly over the past year. The Kelty Redwing 3100 is my go-to pack for day use or up to three days in the field. I am 6' with a 21.5" torso length. This is one of the best fitting packs I have found in the price range.

Excerpt: It's my second Kelty. I needed something smaller than what I had for shorter trips. I travel rather light, so the bag isn't under much stress. But like other Kelty products I've used, I'm quite satisfied.

Excerpt: This new one is a replacement for my old one that is about 10 years old. I love the old one but one of the straps is beginning to tear and the inner coating is flaking off. It has served me well and faithfully. I like the new one's suspension system but haven't carried it with a load yet.

Excerpt: I absolutely love this backpack compared to many others I've seen. Although it's a daypack, I used it for a 4-day trip and it worked fine. The reason for the mediocre review is within the first 4 hours of using it, one of the strap mounts on the bottom of the backpack tore apart.

Summary: This pack is another example of Kelty durability and longevity. It's a very durable pack with a large main compartment plus two large-ish pockets on the back. While it seems small to me for overnight use, it makes a very roomy day pack.
Pros: Front-loading design, Large capacity for day hikes (or quick overnighters)

Excerpt: I love this pack. It fits perfectly with the adjustable frame. The waist belt, sternum strap and shoulders adjust perfectly as well. It is well balanced and holds whatever you pack into it securely. I use for hiking and to carry my camera gear.
