Warrior East 2017 – Kelty Small Rolling Trunk

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Making its debut at Warrior East is the Small Rolling Trunk from Kelty.  It’s about half the size of its big brother at ~5,000 cu in. Made from 1000D Cordura, it features haul handles and four external pockets.  

Additionally, it is Berry Compliant. But the big story here is the metal frame.

I’ll categorize it as virtually indestructible. I say virtually because if you challenge Joe with a claim of indestructible, he’ll do anything to prove it wrong, even to the point of wrecking his own equipment.  

Unfortunately, that beefy frame is going to have some heft to it, but I don’t have a weight for it yet. Coming very soon, from www.kelty.com/military.

Available in Coyote Brown with a 2 Man version on the way.

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.

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.
