Kelty Fury 35L update

Kelty Fury 35L update

Kelty Fury 35L taking a much needed break

Yes, this Kelty Fury 35L update is a little late.  If you have read any of my recent reports you probably picked up on the fact that I twisted my knee loading a kayak on my truck and then had to have it scoped a few weeks later. I’m still not back at 100% but I have started back hiking.  My first several hikes were short and with a very light day pack containing only a little water and a few essentials.  I stayed on trails that were fairly flat and took my time to avoid twisting my knee.  Then, on November 17 I  loaded the Kelty Fury 35 up for a short overnight hike.  To read the rest of this update please click here.

Kelty Fury 35 pack

The Fury 35 is part of the Agile series of packs and is available as a men’s or women’s and comes in 2 sizes, S/M and M/L. It is an internal frame pack and is offered in 2 colors, orange or blue.  According to Kelty, the Fury 35 is a good choice for an overnight trip or a quick session on the AT.  I’m not sure what a quick session is, however, I think that with the proper gear it would be suitable for at least a weekend trip (2 or 3 nights) and perhaps even longer hikes.
