condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: KELTY

This is one of the first backpacks Kelty produced when it was a fledgling company. Probably a collectors item now. Currently retails on Amazon for $268. Bought it in 1974 when backpacking first started becoming popular. External aluminum frame is as strong and sturdy as the day I bought it; and fabric, belt, and straps are in excellent condition as well. I only used it for 3 short trips (1 week) into the Trinity Alps and four long trips (3 weeks) into the high Sierra’s back in 70s and early 80s, since then it’s been in storage. This XL model has the capacity and strength needed for long duration trips. I found it much more comfortable than a frameless pack because it allows sweat on your back to evaporate. It has been sitting in storage far too long and begging to get back into the high country. I’m too old for backpacking now, so I’m looking for someone who will give this pack a good home 🙂
