Two days ago, woot offered the Kelty Avocet 30 and I posted some extensive reviews, including how wonderful the lumbar support is, pictures with a tour (some of the features are similar to this pack), and information about waterproofing (short version: the fabric and zippers are treated to be quite waterproof, although if you’re hiking in a rain forest, you’ll want a rain cover). I won’t repeat that information here, unless someone request some clarification or elaboration, which I’m happy to provide to the best of my knowledge. I don’t own this pack (well, I kinda don’t own it: I mean, I guess I own it now, but I can’t post reviews of it until woot ships it to me!), but I own two different Kelty packs, purchased after about a year of research at non-woot prices, and I really love them. Absolutely top-notch bags. If people have questions about Kelty, I’ll do my best to answer them given that I don’t yet have this specific pack in my possession.
I own the Kelty Women Courser 40 in Jade. Here’s a lousy picture of the colors:
And here’s a lousy close-up of the colors that is a little less washed out:
(BTW, Kelty bags really do clean up perfectly with a washcloth and water. I just haven’t bothered since the last time that I used the bag!)
