With its extensive organizational features and ergonomic design, the small/medium PK 50 Backpack from Kelty will let you spend less time rummaging on your next day hike or overnighter. This 50 liter pack has a top-loading main compartment with a roll closure instead of a zipper, which enables you to compress your load for stability and comfort. Clothing and trail essentials go in the front compartment, which can be detached once in camp to reduce the pack's volume to 35 liters for hikes. Compression wings keep your load stable and balanced, and there's an integrated pull-out rain cover in case of inclement weather. Along with wing, belt and front pockets, the PK 50 has stretch-mesh water bottle pockets -- but it's also compatible with a three-liter hydration system. An ice axe loop and a key fob are also included.

You'll carry your load comfortably thanks to the pack's ventilating back-panel and Air-Mesh shoulder straps, waist belt and lumbar support. The sternum strap eases strain on your back and shoulders, and the waist belt transfers part of the burden to your legs. The pack keeps its shape and supports your gear thanks to its HDPE frame sheet and single LightBeam aluminum stay, which is fixed to the waistband to distribute weight across your lumbar region.
