The Kelty Yukon external frame pack is the classic scout backpack. Sized between a youth pack and standard "adult" packs, the Yukon offers adjustability to cover a wide range of torso sizes (13”-19”), has 2900 cubic inches of storage capacity, and provides rugged, reliable performance.
The Yukon's rigid aluminum frame provides excellent stability and support. In fact, if you're carrying heavy loads over well-maintained trails and even terrain, it's hard to beat an external frame pack. However, it is important to remember that the rigidity of an external frame can hamper flexibility for off-trail scrambling. The Yukon's ventilated backpanel, adjustable dual-density waistbelt, and padded shoulder straps work together to further enhance fit. Belt stabilizer straps help to transfer weight onto the hips. The Yukon's adjustable sternum strap fine tunes the positioning of the shoulder straps across the chest to prevent chafing under the arms.
Equipped with many zippered pockets, the Yukon allows you to separate and organize gear while providing quick and easy access to whatever you might need while on the trail. An internal "hold-open" bar keeps the top-loading main packbag open, making it easier to pack your gear.
Other features found on the Yukon include an enclosed sleeping bag compartment, a lid pocket, zippered side pockets, a mesh water bottle pocket, a daisy chain attachment system, lash points, and an ice-axe loop. A lined internal sleeve makes the Yukon hydration system (sold separately) compatible.
