Three of the four colors are available for $59.98:
Black
Ponderosa Pine (Green)
Twilight Blue

This is the cheapest price this bag has ever been. For 60 bucks it's an absolute steal. I bought this bag last year for $75 thinking that's the cheapest I'd ever hope to find it for. Since then, I've taken it backpacking for a three months through Central America. It's my go-to backpacking (travel) bag now and would even work for weekend backpacking (hiking) trips as well. The nice this about this bag is that it fits as a carry on for every airline I've used it on, which helps save money.

Great bag. The 32L is good for a personal item. 44L will work as a carry on if you don't stuff the hell out of it. Have been using the redwing series for the last 5-6 years of travel. Way better than rolling luggage around.

I will be using this for long hikes and overnights. Is this good for that? Does this have the strap around the shoulder and hips?

Honestly, this isn't super geared towards outdoorsman backpacking. It will certainly suffice but I think there are many bags that are better organized and laid out for that. It does have a hit belt, one that you can easily remove, to distribute the weight. That being said, it still would work perfectly fine for an overnight or two trip.

Edit: It also has a shoulder strap that goes across your chest.

Exactly. If you don't stuff the side pockets and remove the hip belt it can essentially be stuffed full to the brim and still fit in the overhead bin. Big emphasis on not stuffing those side pockets.

How would you get 15% off? I know Prime card would get you 5%, but how would you get the other 10%?

I've got the osprey porter 46, it's great just wish it had water bottle holder (this has) and was more comfortable (this looks like it is)?

Should I get this 😅 how does this compare?

This is a great price but I heard they cheaped out on this new version. I am a sucker for backpacks so I pulled the trigger anyway (prime easy returns).

I own many osprey bags and love them, this will be my first kelty and I'm expecting it to be lesser in quality, according to reviews.

My wife, brother and I each have this backpack in different colors. We've been using it for 5+ years as our single carry-on for trips all over the place. Makes life convenient (no checked bags) and has held up well... would recommend. Pretty sure we paid $100+ on Amazon for them at different points in time.

OP, I hate you. /s
I really didn't need to see this this morning.
In for one, I needed a slightly larger pack for carry ons and this is a great price.
rep given.

https://youtu.be/g30PuAqbLgI looks like this is a better choice overall. One thing about ospreys though that this is lacking - the durability of material nylon (osprey) vs polyester (kelty). Personally I've been using a polyester type Dakine for years and had no issues with it.

I got this bag, ty OP.

That's why you do both. Put the carry on the overhead and place a medium sized backpack under your seat /between your legs
