  • 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. It has been on literally hundreds of non-backpacking trips as well, from a day in San Diego to two and a half weeks in Croatia.

  • 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, trekked across Sicily in the rain in December...etc.

  • Excerpt: Good pack for weekend trip. Anything longer than 3 or 4 days and you are going to be short on space. Great fit, and lots of compartments.

  • 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. I also like the way it distributes weight to the belt. My typical overnight pack weight is about 35 pounds or less depending on the weather. The Redwing 3100 handles the load comfortably.

  • Excerpt: Have the 07' or 08' model. Lots of space/room and it is hydration compatible (not included). I actually put my Camelbak hydration pack in and fits/works well. Main compartment is huge. Front compartment has organizer for personal belongings (maps, key FOB, wallet, etc), side pocks on both sides (though they have unzipped on their own before), and also has a mini front compartment for miscellaneous things.

  • 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. I am a little concerned about the side pockets where I keep my liter size water bottles since they are smaller than on my old one. Yeah, I know, use a water bladder.

25 June 2008
  • 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. The things I had strapped to the outside of the pack weren't even that heavy, so I was surprised that it tore apart so easily.

  • 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)
  • Cons: Heavy

  • 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. It's large enough to hold two days change of clothes and two full camera set, Large Format and Digital. Fully loaded I can carry up to 45 lbs in it and not feel it on my shoulders.
