Warrior West – Kelty Waterproof Breathable Compression Stuff Sack

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

I know it sounds like the simplest thing, but in the wrong environment, wet gear can kill you. Kelty offers a waterproof breathable compression stuff sack, made from the same material as their VariCom bivy bag, so it’s the same green color. It comes in two sizes, Small which handles up to 11 liters and Large which will accommodate 27 liters.

In addition to the four compression straps on each bag, there is a roll top closure as well.

These are fully Berry compliant.

Kelty Tru.Comfort Sleeping Bag

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Kelty is introducing the Tru.Comfort line which are a bit different than your traditional mummy bags.  Insulated with ThermaPro, Tru.Comfort sleeping bags feature Kelty’s proprietary two-layer blanket system enabling users to not only regulate their temperature but also offers more room through the torso and legs.  This allows users to tuck up their knees, sleep on their side and roll over. Lastly, Tru.Comfort bags have the comfort-tuck zipper system so feet to peek out as well as an oversized hood and a toggle to keep the interior blanket secure.


The Tru.Comfort line includes: the 20 degree sleeping bag in regular, long and a women’s shape ranging from $119.35 to $139.95 and the 35 degree sleeping bag in regular and long, priced at $109.95 and $129.95.

Coming Spring 2016.

It Came From OR – Kelty TrailLogic – It’s Not Rocket Science, It’s Trail Science

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Kelty unveiled a new lightweight backpacking system at OR Summer Market. Called TrailLogic, it consists of Packs, Sleeping Bags, Tents and sleeping pads. Any of the pieces can work alone or in concert with the other items.

The PK 50 ($199.95) backpack is the hub of the Kelty TraiLogic™ collection, offering compartmentalized organization to seamlessly accommodate the rest of your equipment and speed campsite set up. A removable clothing compartment gives easy access to apparel while allowing this 50-liter pack to convert to a 35-liter pack for shorter journeys. Advanced suspension designs provide a very comfortable carry on long hauls or with heavy loads. Completely zipper-free, the PK 50 is built with roll-top closures to eliminate the possibility of broken zippers in the backcountry while a specially designed tent pocket provides easy access to your shelter.

To save space inside your pack, the Kelty TN 2 ($249.95) and TN 3 ($299.95) tents feature shorter, more compact poles and a ‘Tent Cube’ stuff sack, both of which allow effortless compatibility with the PK 50’s dedicated tent pocket. These tents also boast our Stargazing Fly™ feature, giving you a view of the night sky while allowing you to deploy the fly without ever leaving your sleeping bag. Oversized doors and vestibules provide easy access and abundant gear storage.

Highly packable, compressible, and lightweight, the 800-fill DriDown™ insulated SB 20 ($299.95) and SB 35 ($249.95) sleeping bags offer outstanding performance in any overnight situation. Hydrophobic DriDown™ combines with waterproof panels on the head and foot to give you “Head-2-Toe Dri” waterproof protection from condensation and wet weather. A full-length, 2-way zipper offers easily customized ventilation on warm nights. Both of these bags pack easily into the PK 50’s separate sleeping bag compartment with or without a stuff sack.

Three different sleep pads- the PDsi full-length($79.95), PDsi ¾ length ($69.95), and PDa air chamber pad ($69.95)- each fold up into their own ‘Pad Cube’ for convenience and space savings in any pack. The PDsi and PDsi ¾ use body mapping to shape the pad and remove excess material from key locations for a perfect blend of weight and comfort. When pack space and weight are the primary concern, the PDa is an ultralight, ultra-comfortable air chamber pad that goes unnoticed in your pack until it’s time to turn in.

Coming Spring 2014.


Kelty Ascender System

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

We first mentioned the Kelty Ascender System during the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. Slated for an August 2013 release, Kelty is referring to it as “the bag that carries you.”

The key is the telescoping, rolling aluminum frame system. It is paired with a family of various bags that can be attached to the frame or used alone. Definitely worth checking out.
