I was able to take the Revol 65 on a multi-day backpacking trip into the Shining Rock Wilderness in Pisgah National Forest in Western NC. I was very impressed with how the pack performed, especially a few of the features. Click here to read my initial update on the Revol 65 backpack by Kelty.

Kelty Fury 35L taking a much needed break
Yes, this 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.

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.
