      Comments about Kelty Redtail 1800 Daypack:

      I ordered this because it was deeply discounted[...] I didn't expect much, but was really surprised at the quality and functionality of this pack. Very well made and thought out. I will use this when flying to adventure destinations, because it can easily be compressed to the size required for a second carry-on item. The Delrin hoop doesn't just help the pack keep its shape but is strong enough to act as an internal frame that transfers weight to the belt. The top end of the shoulder straps can be lengthened to get the pack to rest well on different torso lengths. The waist belt can be used as a second set of compression straps by running it though the bottom daisy chain loop. You can get sufficient access without detaching the top compression straps and more if you do. I now have several Kelty items and am impressed by the quality and value.

        Versatile daypack good for anything from day hikes to daily classes. Lot's of compartments. My son's using it at school. Doesn't look 'nerdy' like some daypacks designed for school use. Good padding in shoulder straps and back panel.
