  • Summary: Purchased this backpack earlier this summer and took it on a 5-day pack trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The pack is outstanding. Several others in the group had internal frame packs and suffered from uneven weight distribution. My pack weighed 40 lbs and was supported evenly by this excellent external frame pack. In my opinion external frame packs are the best. The Kelty Trekker is outstanding.

  • Summary: Very light and holds everything I need. Wish it had a better compartment for my hydration system but the top flap zipper works just fine. I like external frames as I attach additional items as needed for my trips. Internal packs I have experience with don't measure up. However I've always been biased to external.

  • Summary: I have an older style Kelty Trekker, but it's always been great! When I got into Boy Scouts my parents got me this for Christmas one year, I've had it for 12 years or so now and I've never had a problem! I've beat the crap out of this bag and it's never given me a problem. What also is great about it is that as I've grown and my body shape has changed over the years the different adjustments with the frame and the straps have kept up. All around a great bag!

  • Summary: I !love! my Kelty Trekker. I don't get a lot of people agreeing with me, but I dislike internal frame packs. I lash all kinds of stuff to this frame and hike away happy. I am 6'2" and have an athletic build and I can put more than I can carry in here. Heres what I can fit in this bag for a solo trip. Two top outside pockets are perfect fit for nalgene 1 liters, plus a little outside pocket has a small camera, journal, and pencil.

  • Summary: I bought this backpack about 6 years ago and it has served me very well on about 18-20 1-2 night backpacking trips, most of which involved some significant up- and down-hill mountain hiking (I live in Washington state) in Cascade and Olympic rain forest, Eastern Washington hot sun, beach excursions, and winter snowshoe backpacking on Mt Rainier (snow). It is a great value for the money.

  • Summary: My 11-year-old son hiked 17 miles with this pack on, his first backpacking overnight trip. He is on the short end of the pack fitting his torso, but is chunky around the waist so the waist strap fit fine once we adjusted it down a bunch. We found the exterior pockets to be very handy for bottle, shovel, other trail gear, and loved the load adjustment straps. Very easy to pull tight or loosen as needed.

Chicco Trekker

  • Summary: I love this stroller! I get comments every tim ewe take it out. It is very attractive and functional. It wasn't much use for a small baby, but the infant seat fit safely on top and now it fits her just fine! I have a small car and this folds neatly into the trunk, easily and quickly. THe rain shield has been a lifesaver! We were stuck in a torrential downpour and the baby was dry as can be under her cover, loving every minute of it looking out at the rain.
  • Pros: Not for infant- too big, sunshade doesn't offer enough shade, window too small
  • Cons: Not for infant- too big, sunshade doesn''t offer enough shade, window too small

  • Summary: We bought this pack approx a year ago for our son to go to the Philmont Scout Ranch. To this point we are extremely happy with the quality of the pack. It is easy to adjust and very comforable to wear. We especally like the hip belt buckle adjustment and the load lifter straps. The only complaint we have is that the external side pockets are a little on the small side. I have always been a Camp Trails fan but I am now looking at the Kelty 50th annversary pack for myself.
