I love the red color. It harkens back to the 1970's model D4 pack; but that one was really red; this is more muted. I would like to see pouch pockets on the hip belt. LOVE Kelty . . . THE ORIGINAL. Unknown on Jan 27th 2017
I'm in the market for a new bug out bag. If the Trekker 65 was available in more subdued colors I'd pull the trigger on it right now. Otherwise I guess the search continues.

I've always loved the outdoors and from my ruckmarches in the army I spent months searching for a pack for my personal hikes and after all my research I decided with the kelty trekker 65 and I couldn't be happier I love the pack I can load this thing up with weight and because of how it carries I can do 10 mile hikes with ease I love my trekker 65 Sean Stouffer on Dec 27th 2016
I'd very much like to buy one of these packs for serious backpacking, but OMG not in RED.
Forest green, please, and you have a new customer. cg in Seattle on Dec 25th 2016
I am first sad to see a quality company that makes quality products start to go the way of the Dinosaurs. The only color that this comes in is Danger Red. When I go out and commune with nature, I like to blend in with nature. Not be visible for 18 miles away because my pack sticks out like a sore thumb. I cannot understand what companies are thinking with all of the Extremely bright colors. I go to nature to be one with nature, so I like colors that blend in with my surroundings. As the pack goes it is a Kelty, what more needs to be said. Kelty packs rock, except for the color. Jeremiah on Dec 21st 2016
My wife and I ditched our Internals three years ago for a Kelty Trekker 65 and Kelty Tioga 5500. We can wear our Kelty's, loaded to the max, all day long without shoulder pain. Could not do that with any of the several models of Internal frames we tried over the years. Unknown on Dec 5th 2016
I have been using an internal frame for my hiking with our troop. Bought this pack for some of the larger boys in the troop to use, but had the opportunity to use it myself. Loads easier, carries lighter and much cooler on my back!
would like it in a green, brown or tan color...... Rob on Nov 9th 2016
Love the pack... hate being the most visible thing in the woods though.... bring back the green !... or brown earth tones... please no more walking danger flags..
Thank you Dave R. on Aug 20th 2016
love this pack. someday everyone will have external frame packs - the internal frame packs are a fashion statement IMHO. OK there are some things i might add. i think it needs more webbing attachment points on the back. i think it might benefit from some small pockets on the hip belt. we need this in a 75 and 85 size. these are quibbles really. my brother has a gregory baltoro and he is thinking of ditching it for a kelty external frame.

I grew up with Kelty, when their only store was in Glendale, CA and they had Sir Hillary's Mt Everest backpack on display (with the "DO NOT TOUCH" sign that all us kids ignored). In the 60's, there was nothing better, and having a Kelty was a sign of the "rich kids". It's STILL a sign of the best for old school external packs, my only objection is that you can no longer get them in the Kelty Forest Green. I would replace my red Trecker 65 in a heartbeat for a green model. Bob P, Palm Springs on Jun 17th 2016
