    So after a ridiculous Bears loss to Denver comforted by Jack Daniels, I decided to buy a Kelty Redwing 3100 on ebay for $43 just because. I think it's a good deal but I could be wrong.

    So what am I in for? Any experiences with this pack? I'm hoping to use this to house a car emergency kit/get home bag. I've read more than a few posts on this bag and it seems like people enjoy it. It seems like a classic... and while I have a few other bags for different purposes, I'm liking the setup of this bag.

    So what say you? What did I get myself into?

    great bag. I used it for a couple years. Very nice organization and access to your stuff, carries a load well when you fit the aluminum frame to you. I used it as a climbing pack so it was always tossed down onto rocks and scree, and the bottle holder mesh did rip a couple times. For your uses you will never see that kind of wear, so i wouldnt worry about it.

    Enjoy the great pack- you're getting it for less than half what I paid. :)

    I love it. You got a great price. I can pack for several days in it, and carry it on a plane. It also carries a freakishly large number of books for me to school. My husband won't even pick it up when I got it full of books, but once it is on my back, I don't feel the weight at all. The bladder bag holder is a perfect size for my netbook.

    eBay sure is addicting. I just saw another Kelty Redwing 3100 on there. Right now it's like $28 with 5 hours to go if anyone is interested. I have zero affiliation with the seller and all that good CYA stuff.
