Kelty Glendale 85

Man outdoors with backpack

Over the years Kelty has built some of the most tried-and-true big backpacking packs and the latest iteration, the Glendale 85, lives up to that beloved heritage. When a pack says Kelty on it, you know you can count on durability and a whole lot of pack for your dollar. The Glendale certainly checks both of those boxes with rugged fabrics, a broadly adjustable load-carrying suspension system capable of hauling 50+ pounds, and easy access to the spacious interior via the traditional top-loading entry or the large J-zip on the pack’s left side. It has plenty of other pockets and attachment points too so you can load the pack up, head out onto the trail, and stay out for days on end!
