Kelty - Yukon External Frame Pack

Availability: Out of stock

Stock #: 199E-

A timeless classic for adolescent backpackers, the Kelty Yukon delivers the value and growing room that make it especially popular with Scouts and other young adults. Your author has distinct memories of looking up the trail on a Cub Scout hike in the White Mountains "back in the day" and seeing four Yukon packs arrayed up the trail in front of him, a scene which would look virtually unchanged today, as the Yukon remains as popular as ever. The fact that it is the very last external-frame pack left in the GearX inventory should be viewed as a testament to the customer demand that keeps it coming back year after year, even as the rest of the market has transitioned to internal-frame packs. 

The external frame of the Yukon is extenable to accomodate growing torsos, and it creates a good amount of airspace behind the back for summertime ventilation. Numerous pockets allow organization of small items, and let's face it - it always has been easier to strap a sleeping bag to the bottom of an external-frame pack than it is to stuff it in the bottom of an internal-frame one. Just make sure you put it inside a waterproof bag.
