Kelty Vintage Pack
Kelty Pack was founded in 1952 by Asher ‘Dick’ Kelty. As an avid hiker, Dick set out to create a better pack than the bulky wooden frame packs of his time. With a background in aviation and carpentry, he began welding aircraft grade aluminum frames in the garage while his wife Nena, sewed each pack by hand. Kelty Vintage Pack honors designs from the brands 1960s and 1970s archives with subtle updates like high performance CORDURA® fabric to suit the needs of modern day outdoor enthusiasts.
