I do like the colors. Not so industrial.

Can we get a darker backpack with the Woot! logo for the guys next? I use a backpack at work and would love to look like the biggest nerd at my work with a Woot! logo backpack.

Is this for sure a "kite" model? I cannot find this model anywhere. I know that typically they are from the previous year. The kite model that comes up throughout various searches and on kelty's site itself does not have the chest or waist straps.

So this is officially a men's backpack, right? Is that important? I ask as someone who has mostly only bought used unisex backpacks and is probably not the target audience for a fancy one.

I believe this is unisex or male. We have both male and female kelty's here and I will say the unisex/male in the backpack style works fine for either sex. Once you start getting into larger sizes/actual hiking bags it makes a difference. At a certain price point kelty's also have torso adjustment. Overall they are good quality bags, imo.

So what's with the Hunger Games outfits the models are sporting? Upon getting these ever-so trendy bags we'll be killing each other off for food? Awesome!

Please don't generalize about gender-color preferences. I'm a lady and I happen think these melted-sherbert colors are hideous.

Boy, those bags seem rather full... of what?

So since it isn't listed in the features I assume the large pocket doesn't have a sleeve/pocket for a laptop. I can't find a picture anywhere of the inside of the main pocket. Bummer because I want to switch to a backpack for work but need a pocket for my laptop.

Kelty.com specifically indicates "Hermaphrodite"

I would rather spend the extra $170 and get a bullet proof one.
As long as schools are "gun safe" zones, kids will need it!

Agreed. The Yukon Outfitters Outdoors Gear looks more my style. I like the bugout bag. Of course with the sweetie pie colors of the Kelty I'd never have a gear mix up at the hunting lodge.

How much weight can these comfortably handle? I rather not spend $250 on a GoRuck bag.

Shoulda just give it free or maybe about $5.00 complementary price for these LOYAL Wooters here .

Here's the inside. The pocket is a flat fabric panel. I wouldn't call it a laptop sleeve as it's not padded.

Kelty made this exclusively for Woot, so they provided the name of the pack for us to use.

I may just have to have it. I frequently wish I had a convenient place to stow my ice axe on my adventures about town.

Exclusive for Woot? Big need for ice axes in Texas?

I did want to see the inside of the bag but because I waited now I missed out on the deal. Very foolish on my part.

I ordered curry, but they sent a green one. It looks good, but I don't like the color.
