How do we feel about Kelty?
I'm looking into a Kelty Illusion 3500 for my backpacking trip next Autumn... Any experience or thoughts? also, in general.. what is the difference between a woman's pack and the standard? thanks... Here's a link to the bag on ebags if that helps..http://www.ebags.com/kelty/illusion_...?modelid=50582

womans bags have a short distance from the shoulders to the hips, and the straps tend to be contured differently to allow for breast as well as a higher sternum strap, they hip belts also tend to angle outward more noticablly than a standard bag and they are more likely to come in pink
ok screw the blog go to my website instead
Kelty has some decent pack, but also have some lousy ones. The one you are looking at is a front panel loader - it would be better if it was both front panel and top loading (2 access points). Also, no detachable daypack.
I've done lots of research on packs and I love mine. It's a woman's/small adjustable internal framepack. I did the grand canyon and many, many Alaskan backpacking trips. It's like 4.4? lbs and has a mesh back so you're not sticky sweaty, lots of easy adjustable pouches and stuff like that. I'd check them out-mine's discontinued but it looks like they make similar stuff-hopefully even better. coleman's pretty cheap too
