I have this pack. I bought it from Sam's club last year on sale for $45. it was originally $90. The quality is good. I used it on a one day hike and it did very well. For this price you cannot go wrong. If you are even thinking about a hiking pack in this size range get it.

I don't actually know -- I bought this thing when I was 19, and I just went into a store and tried stuff until I found one I liked. This thing has been with me *everywhere* -- probably a good 20 countries, at least -- and it's survived. I have sewn up a few holes, the lining is shot to hell and it's looking really beat up. At this point I need to face reality and get something new. My old pack does not have anything specific on which to attach a sleeping bag.

Also, kheanglao, I think it depends what kind of traveler you are. I've never had to walk the whole with my pack (or at least, not my main one), and that's in travel through Asia, Europe and North and South America. I also try to pack really, really light (I don't mind doing laundry on the road). For someone like me, I don't think a pack needs to be super heavy duty.

It took some searching, but yeah I found it there too. Was tempted to pull the trigger on this pack too, but don't really have a need for it anytime real soon, and seeing the lower price tells me they should be around in that price range in the future as well nod

How about for bumming around Europe or Asia for 4-5 weeks? Is it sturdy enough to handle that? My last backpack -- beloved companion of more than 16 years! -- is on its last legs. I'd like something that can be equally durable.
will it handle 4-5 weeks, yes, will it handle 16 years...unlikely. It's not a kelty product, but that doesn't mean it's crap. Internal frame isn't ideal for transferring weight to your hips (at this price point) but I think you will be happy with this purchase.

I use an old military sleeping bag (inner part only, it was supposed to have an inner lined bag, and an outter shell which I subsequently lost). When traveling light (1-3 days) I put the sleeping bag in the lower part of the main compartment, when I travel longer, I strap the sleeping bag to the outside bottom of the pack. Again I don't know if this bag still has the features of my old one, which included long nylon straps at the bottom with clips and adjustments that would allow such sleeping bag tethering, my guess is yes.

The single biggest thing you can do to make this or any other pack last is to resist the temptation to pick it up by the shoulder straps when it's loaded. I know, I know, the shoulder straps should be able to handle the weight. But you tend to jerk the weight off the ground anyways, and these packs are all designed to distribute the stress between both shoulder straps and the waist belt.

At the top of the pack in between the shoulder straps is the haul loop. Get in the habit of picking it up by that, get one arm through one of the shoulder straps and swing the pack around that shoulder and onto your back. Then hook your other arm through the second shoulder strap and you're done.

The manufacturer is not Kelty.

From Kelty's warranty page:
Kelty Pack is not affiliated with “Ridgeway by Kelty” in any way. It is a separate company that in the past had licensed the name for production. As we did not manufacture it, we do not stock parts to repair or maintain this specific “Ridgeway by Kelty” product.
Thanks, I'll pass. I can get my sphincter ripped for less than $35 other places... Best Buy for instance.
