A longtime favorite of female backpackers the Kelty Women’s Red Cloud 80 pack is an excellent balance of performance and affordability and it also features Kelty’s innovative PerfectFIT suspension. Load-hauling capability convenient access points and an array of features combine to equip the Women’s Red Cloud 80 for extended backpacking trips.

Kelty's women's packs incorporate features designed specifically for female users. Anatomically designed the angled shoulder straps accommodate a woman's curvature while the conical waistbelt offers finely tuned support and comfort over the hips.

The Women’s Red Cloud 80 is Kelty’s largest female-specific pack with the PerfectFIT suspension system for accurate on-body size adjustment that allows you to customize your fit in seconds. With PerfectFIT gone are the days of taking measurements and trying on various pack sizes in a gear shop to determine the best fit for your particular body (or ordering a pack online that may or may not fit once you’ve received it). In just three steps you can easily find your fit in the Women’s Red Cloud 80: just loosen all the straps before putting the pack on; next tighten the waist belt and shoulder straps once you’re wearing the pack; lastly locate the FIT straps near your lower back and pull downward until you achieve optimal comfort. The Women’s Red Cloud 80 with PerfectFIT will accommodate backpackers with torso lengths between 14.5 and 18.5 inches.

Relying on twin lightweight aluminum stays a horizontal anti-barreling stay and an HDPE framesheet the Women’s Red Cloud 80 offers trustworthy 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 as well. 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. 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 Women’s Red Cloud 80 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 Women’s Red Cloud 80's contents.

The top-loading Women’s Red Cloud 80 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 Women’s Red Cloud 80 than is often the case with the compartment access on comparably-sized packs. A zippered front panel offers additional quick access to your gear from the front of the pack. The lid of the Women’s Red Cloud 80 can be removed entirely 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 daisy-chain attachment system a carry handle ice-axe loops and dual mesh water bottle pockets. A lined interior pocket and built-in tube exit make the Women’s Red Cloud 80 hydration compatible as well.

Thanks to its PerfectFIT suspension the Kelty Women’s Red Cloud 80 is one size fits all and provides for an optimal carry weight of between 28 and 62 pounds.
