Availability: In Stock
Description:  When it comes to backpacking I am a big proponent of packing right and packing light.  That is one of the reasons why I love this Kelty PK 50, it is on the small side, ultra light and ultra compact.  For me it is the perfect size for a 2-7 day backpacking trip. So pack smart, and enjoy the journey. The award-winning PK 50 has an innovative compartmentalized design that makes packing and unpacking your gear fast and easy. This Kelty Backpacking backpack has a detachable 15L front pocket un-clips from the main pack, so you can bring the essentials into your tent – or leave it behind when you want to go fast and light.  If you get caught in the rain, just pull out the integrated backpack rain cover for protection.  One of my favorite things about this ultra light backpack is that it uses no zippers and instead is based on an innovative snap buckle design which means a reduced chance of it breaking when you need it most, on the trail.
