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.


OR – Kelty Ascender System

Monday, January 28th, 2013


I’ve got to tell you that I’ve saved this until now because it is so cool. Kelty has completely changed the game on travel luggage. Billed as “the bag that carries you” the new Ascender System isn’t their first trip to the rodeo as Kelty once partnered with Eagle Industries to provide the aluminum frame for the EI Rolling Duffel (Kelty has their own version now as well called appropriately enough, the Zeppelin).


What Kelty has done is created a Modular Travel System that is built around a telescoping, rolling aluminum frame system that is paired with a family of bags that fit to it. Because the bags are detachable from the frame, they can be used alone as daypacks or duffles. Conversely, I can see the telescoping frame being adapted to tote quite a few odd sized loads around.


The telescoping frame and expandable bags mean you can adapt the Ascender to your load. For us this is great news. We can use it in its carry-on size configuration when heading to a tradeshow and on the way home expand the frame and bag combo to checked luggage size to accommodate the literature and swag we invariable pick up.


Additionally, like all great travel luggage, the bags are internally configurable. One model is also water resistant.
