  • Summary: You can still find well-made Trekkers in like-new condition online if you're a smart shopper. Before Kelty switched to polyester materials and a thinner hipbelt, this pack represented a practical, comfortable on-trail option for people hauling heavy loads.
  • Pros: Great ventilation, Great organization, Comfortable, quality padding
  • Cons: Best for on-trail use, Heavy, No longer a top choice for any particular useage

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Kelty Screenhouse two years ago and have used it about 2 dozen times. Set-up of this unit is a little tricky, but, once mastered it is no big deal. I can set up the tent solo in about 10 minutes, a little faster when I have help.

  • Excerpt: I purchased my Trekker for a 300-mile thru-hike of the Long Trail in Vermont's Green Mountains. It was my longest backpack, I knew I'd be packing a lot of weight, and I needed a pack that gave me piece of mind on the trail. My first day's load was 47 lbs, and the pack distributed the weight well.

  • Excerpt: I ordered a Kelty Trekker 2 3950 two weeks ago, and my sons and I went on a backpack trip to the Shining Rock Wilderness, NC on July 21. The Trekker seemed to be very well designed, however on July 23 as we were climbing Tennent Mountain suddenly both vertical frame members broke, just below the...

  • Excerpt: This pack is comfortable and carries a lot of gear. What more can be said. This pack succeeds where it needs to. It does weigh five pounds, but with hip belt sizes on most packs being so large, I would guess that most people are carrying an extra five all of the time.

  • Excerpt: Love this one. Beautifully made. Setting it up is not super easy, at least with my IQ. But once you get it set up, it is COOL!

6 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The "experts" will mostly tell newer backpackers to get an internal for any number of reasons. This pack blows almost all of those reasons out of the water. I have spent whole weekends bushwhacking through tight underbrush, tree limbs, and thorns with only two major snag-ups...

  • Excerpt: I just got back from a 30-mile 3-day backpacking trip in the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan's UP. It was a great pack that held up perfect. I had plenty of space for all of my stuff and more than enough lashing space. It easily carried my clothes, food, tent, sleeping bag and also my sleeping pad.

  • Excerpt: I have had a Kelty 3950 since Summer 2006. I have since taken it on a weeklong trip to Isle Royale, many 3-5 day (20-30 mile) trips, and am currently training for our Spring 2008 trip with 70 lbs worth of dumbbells in the pack. I love this pack.

  • Excerpt: I've been backpacking since I was still in my mother's womb. I started using my own pack when I was around 6 years old, and have since been through a youth bag and a full size Coleman hand-me-down from my father.
