Kelty Redstone 60L Frame Pack
This pack is sold only through Dick's. I liked the pack because of the adjustable suspension system. I agree with other reviews. It needs more outside pockes. I have done a lot of up and down hiking with this pack and am very satisfied. Even when I went on several practice hikes with it fully loaded, the pack performed excellently. I carried all I needed for my trip including extra water. A great buy.

This bag provides plenty of storage space for a weekend trip or a week. I normally carry around 20 pounds for a weekend. The hip belt provides excellent weight transfer to the hips, and the front access panel provides quick access needed items. The side pockets also carry a one liter bottle very nicely.

Great Multi-Day Pack
Bought this pack last minute for a 4-day pack on the OHT (Ozark Highland Trail) and it worked great. Took a few stops the first day to fine-tune the frame, but once there the pack made 45 lbs feel like 20. Loved the multiple access points to the main compartment and the ease of loading/unloading the pack. Only complaint is that there are not external pockets save two small pockets for water bottles on the sides and two small pockets on the hip belt.

I liked everything about this pack except for the most important part, the hip belt. This pack would not stay on my hips unless I tightened the belt way more than should've been needed (bruised my belly). Had to carry 10 miles on my shoulders. It could also use more exterior pockets.

Light and Comfortable
I bought this pack for a 4 day on the AT (Appalachian trail) and have been please so far with its performance. I am 6'2" 230lbs and I have a 21" torso so for me to find a midsize pack that feels right is not so easy. The suspension system is extremely comfortable and the pack is light at just over 3lbs. I wish there was at least 1 exterior zip pocket for my jetboil and also a floor between the sleeping bag compartment and the main body. If you are putting everything is compression bags as I do then it is not too terribly inconvenient. All in all it is a very nice carry but lacking in external pockets.
