The Kelty Women’s Redwing 40 is an excellent balance of storage capacity (2400 cubic inches), price, and performance. This versatile pack is a great option for long day hikes, overnight travel, or day-to-day use.
A single LightBeam aluminum stay and an HDPE framesheet equip the Women’s Redwing 40 with lightweight, reliable support. Hex mesh and strategic channeling on the backpanel allow warm air to escape so that you stay cooler while carrying weight. A contoured, padded 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. When you aren't carrying heavy loads and don't need the additional support, you can remove the waistbelt entirely and reduce the weight of the pack. 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 help you to cinch and secure the contents of the pack for optimal balance and load distribution.
The main packbag of the Women’s Redwing 40 is accessed through a large, zippered front entry that allows the entire face of the pack to open wide for convenient loading and unloading. An additional large pocket located on the front panel provides internal organizational options. Additional features include zippered side pockets, a stash pocket, an ice-axe loop, a carry handle, a hide-away daisy-chain attachment system, and dual mesh water bottle pockets. A lined interior pocket and built-in tube exit make the pack hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

Real Customer Reviews
- Love this backpack
Likes: Comfortable, pockets are very functional, well built and thought through. just used it on my first trip. Also small enough to go on as cabin baggage, but large enough to carry everything I need.
Dislikes: I wish the front came off as a day pack. That's the only wish I have for this.
- Great backpack
Likes: The pack is very comfortable with around 20-25lbs in it, I use it for 2-3 nights on the trail. The pack has plenty of room for all my gear, and seems very durable. Love the color, looks better than the pictures on line.
Dislikes: So far I have no dislikes, have only used twice.
- Another Good Product From Kelty
Likes: Smaller version of the Red Cloud. Will be great for day hikes.
Dislikes: Doesn't have the pouches on the hip belt.
