There's a reason why the Redcloud has been in the Kelty line and a favorite for women for years. A perfect blend of load carrying capacity, comfortable suspension, custom fit, simplified organization, and durable construction make this load hauler the only pack you'll need for extended backcountry adventures. PerfectFIT™ suspension is designed to be fully adjustable to fit your torso length and carry a heavy load, and the shoulder straps and hip belt are custom-designed for a women's body to provide unmatched stability and comfort on the trail.
The Women's Redcloud 80 is super easy to load with the top loading design and sleeping bag compartment, but you won't have any issues finding what you need with the front-panel access and zippered side pockets. No need for an extra day pack - the lid of the pack also converts into a sling pack. Bonus! Hydration and snacks won't be an issue either with its hydration compatible design and hip belt pockets for small items. The LightBeam™ dual aluminum stays are connected to the hip belt providing direct load transfer while the anti-barreling stays keep the scapula pad flat--even if the pack is overloaded. The HDPE-reinforced, dual density waist belt improves load-support and enhances overall carrying comfort as well while the dual positions for load-lifters straps keeps the pack weight from shifting. Finally, the AirMesh shoulder straps, waist belt, and lumbar pad are designed to keep air moving through and keep you comfortable all day. Hip belt can be removed. For hikers who demand excellence and durability at an affordable price, the Redcloud 80 women's pack delivers.

I borrowed a men's pack for my first couple hikes and decided it was time to get my own prior to a 32.6 mile hike on the Foothills Trail. I settled for purchasing this one. I was more than pleased with my purchase... the pack fit well, and it held everything I needed for my 3-day hike. I really liked the little "extras"... pockets everywhere, all the cinch-straps, the little "rubber bands" used to roll up the tails of most of the straps, the design of the hip belt,... I could keep going. This pack is well-designed, especially for a short woman like myself. angeloberk on Apr 8th 2016
I originally purchased this backpack for a few long multiday backpacking trips I have coming up over the next year, but now I am convinced I will carry this pack for ANY overnighter. The Redclouds maiden voyage was a 20 mile trip along the West Rim Trail in Zion National Park. The Perfect-FIT suspension is phenomenal! The suspension conformed so well to my shape that the distribution of weight to my hip belt was perfect (hence the name I guess). The pockets, zippers, and clips are so strategic it made cinching down my load so easy. I would recommend this pack to anyone planning a weekend trip or a massive three week trek.
