A few days back The Gear Junkie posted a preview of upcoming packs from Kelty that were unveiled at Winter OR and should be hitting the store shelves later this year. In total, there are five new packs on display, each with their own unique design, and sized for the right adventure.
From the small Radii 27 (1650 cubic inches) all the way up to the expedition sized Beam 82 (5000 cubic inches) each of the new packs share the same level of quality that you’ve come to expect from Kelty. GJ says the new packs will also share “a blend of new materials, innovative ventilation, and unique suspension systems”. Of late, it seems that new suspension systems and better ventilation are the buzzwords amongst pack makers, but considering that the two often go hand in hand, that makes perfect sense actually. I’m still looking for an overnight or weekend pack, so the new Span 60 or Slider 65 might do the trick.
After you’re done checking out the new packs, be sure to head over to this page to check out all the details on how you can win a trip for two to Iceland courtesy of Kelty. If you’re lucky enough to win, you’ll receive 2 of those Span 60 packs, 2 Axle rolling packs, 2 Light Year 0 degree sleeping bags, 2 Ouray 2 tents, and footwear from Vasque. Oh, and “deluxe accommodations” and expert guiding from Alaska Mountain Guides while in Iceland. Sounds like a good deal to me. Remember though, if you win, I get to come along! 😉
