Kelty Backpacks

Specializing in outdoor adventure, hiking, and camping, Kelty® backpacks come in several different styles and sizes to prepare you for an overnight trip or traveling back and forth to work. Staples® carries a selection of Kelty bags and other backpack designs to suit any need.

Choosing the Right Kelty Backpack
Two of the most popular Kelty bags are the dome-shaped and the U-shape-entry packs. The most common type, the dome-shaped bag, unzips from one side to another and allows easy access to the entire contents of the bag. Designed to carry books and papers, these bags work well in college and work settings.

U-shape openings make it easy to pack and unload the bag. The zipper opens the top of the bag and there is plenty of expandable space for big items. A U-shape bag works well for hiking and traveling because you have convenient access to snacks, a water bottle, and other necessities.

Considering the Options for Kelty Backpacks
When considering a Kelty bag, choose polyester-blend fabrics that look stylish and are durable enough for daily use. Suede trim helps dress up the pack while reinforcing the seams. Bags with a reflective logo make the pack easy to see in low-light conditions for increased safety.

You can carry a water bottle or beverage in a bag with mesh side pockets or store small items like car keys and sunglasses within reach. To ensure you can carry everything you need, gusset pockets expand to hold more books or clothes. You can also opt for a bag with a water-resistant vinyl bottom so you can set the pack down even when it's wet outside and know it's moisture-proof. Bags with internal and external frames help the pack retain its shape when hiking for long distances.

How Do You Fit Kelty Backpacks Properly?
Backpacks are fitted according to length. Small packs measure 18 inches or shorter. Medium packs range in length from 18 to 20 inches. Large packs measure 20 inches long or more. The pack should sit high on your back and not rest on the hips. When properly fitted, the bag should rest comfortably and make even heavy loads feel lightweight.

What Is the Benefit of a Kelty Backpack With an External Frame?
External-frame backpacks are ideal for carrying irregular objects like sleeping bags and tents. They are also cooler than traditional bags because the frame leaves more space between your back and the bag for increased air flow. These packs disperse the weight of 50 to 100 pounds of equipment evenly to make it feel lighter and easier to carry long distances.

How Do You Attach Gear to Kelty Backpacks?
Attach trekking poles to either side of the bag tucked into a water bottle pocket. You can also attach tent poles in the same manner. Secure bulky items like sleeping pads, sleeping bags, and tents to the top or bottom of the bag horizontally. Make sure the item is well balanced to prevent it from pulling on either side. If you have smaller items, clip them onto the bag using carabiners.
