Kelty Daypacks: Low cost affordable high-quality backpacks for hiking or day to day use

By Edited Apr 23, 2016 0 0

When it comes to daypacks, Kelty is one of the biggest and most well respected manufacturers in the world. In fact, Kelty was the first manufacturer to make an external frame backpack strictly for civilians. It had previously been strictly for the military.
