Kelty Redwing 50 Internal Frame Pack
Love this backpack. Didn't need a lot of bells and whistles, didn't want a book backpack, or a laptop backpack, but didn't need a true hiking pack either. Wanted something to use for weekend trips, and various travel sports tournaments events we attend with our children. This fits the bill. Nice pockets for organizing, nice quality and holds everything he needs for the weekend. This was a good purchase for us.

big enough, fits me
Bought the pack for 1-2 night backpack trips. Big enough for that, everything fits but do need a smaller campstove if I need spare clothing. Everything adjusts well, I am 5"11 and too heavy

Good pack for the money
Took a group of Boy Scouts on a 10 mile overnight backpacking trip. I had the pack loaded to 32 lbs at the start of the trip. And at 3 miles in one of the Scouts had problems. I ended loading to 39 lbs when we divided his gear to lighten his load till he could make the rest of the trip. The pack was still comfortable and performed flawless. With the equipment i carry all of the different pockets makes storage easy. For my hight, 5'10" it fit my back well. The trail we took was moderate to difficult rated. From Gracen Highlands park to the top of Mt. Rogers, highest point in Va. and back. I would recommend this pack.

We bought this back pack for Disney world. The multiple pockets and sturdy frame are a plus. The compartments are easy to get to and you can load alot into it.
