Borrowing the time-tested features, comfort and value of Kelty's esteemed Red Cloud series, the Kelty Coyote 80 offers excellent performance and convenient pack access in a more compact, streamlined design.

Equipped with an adjustable CloudLock II suspension system, the Coyote 80 relies on twin lightweight aluminum stays, a horizontal anti-barreling stay and an HDPE framesheet for reliable support. This design provides stability and load-bearing strength while avoiding the unwieldy rigidity of external frame packs. The pack’s Dynamic AirFlow back panel allows warm air to escape so that you stay cooler while carrying 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 curved and padded shoulder straps on both sizes of the Coyote 80 can be quickly and easily adjusted to comfortably fit varying torso lengths. The Small/Medium size will accommodate torsos ranging from 14.5"-18.5" while the Medium/Large fits 17.5"-21" torsos. 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 and an integrated spindrift collar help you to cinch and secure the contents of the Coyote 80 for optimal balance and load distribution.

The pack body of the Coyote 80 consists of a single, large top-loading compartment. A zippered front panel offers additional quick access to your gear from the front of the pack. The lid of the Coyote 80 can be removed for use as a lumbar pack. A large pocket located on the front panel provides internal organizational options. Additional features include zippered side pockets, a zippered stash pocket, a daisy-chain attachment system and dual mesh water bottle pockets. A lined interior pocket and built-in tube exit make the Coyote 80 hydration compatible.

Dislikes: Nothing

Likes: Great storage for a short weekend to full week excursions. I have done 12 mile day hike which from most is nothing but I am out of shape and relatively new to the hiking community. The pack never had any hot spots or felt uncomfortable. Between the osprey and Greggory this is the only pack that let me stand up straight with out feel like the pack was bumping my head. Very good pack worth every penny. The hip belt on it is good for slightly larger folks fits my natural waist at the bellybutton i am about a 54-53 but that's with out cinching the hip belt.

Dislikes: Could use belt options for larger folks since the belt is removable.
