Product Highlights

Ideal for long day hikes or lightweight overnights, the Kelty Lakota Junior internal frame backpack delivers adult performance youth-friendly dimensions. The Lakota Junior offers an impressive combination of durability and affordability.

The suspension system found on the Lakota Junior relies on a single lightweight LightBeam aluminum stay to support and stabilize weight. A contoured, dual-density waistbelt offers comfortable load support. Kelty's patented Scherer Cinch uses a pulley-like system to double the tightening force on the waistbelt, ensuring that the brunt of the pack's weight rests on your hips.

The Lakota Junior’s anatomically curved and padded shoulder straps accommodate torso lengths ranging from 12" to 16". Load lifter straps relieve stress on your shoulders and an adjustable sternum strap positions the shoulder straps across the chest to prevent chafing under the arms and on the shoulders. Side compression straps secure the contents of the Lakota Junior for optimal balance and load distribution. An integrated spindrift collar and height-adjustable top lid allow you to carry even more gear and further aid in securing the contents of the Lakota 60 Women's pack.

The top-loading Lakota Junior also incorporates an innovative design on the lowest portion of the packbag that provides wide access through the bottom of pack. This feature makes it much easier to get a sleeping bag, clothes or other gear in and out of the Lakota Junior than is often the case with the compartment access on comparably-sized packs.

Additional features include a large, zippered front pocket, a daisy-chain attachment system, a carry handle, an ice-axe loop and dual mesh water bottle pockets. A lined interior pocket and built-in tube exit make the Lakota Junior pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included). A rain cover is included for weather protection.
