  • In total, we have checked and analyzed 2,101 reviews of the two bags.

Only the Redwing is available in these colors:

The Kelty Flyway and Redwing are both straightforward, small-to-mid-sized suspended backpacks. The two differ little in regards to their overall manufacturing and structure, with their comparable function, materials, and overall craftmanship and quality. The primary difference between the two comes from their suspension systems and size.

Although the dimensions of the two packs only differ by five liters (with the Redwing's 50 liters and the Flyway's mere 45), this difference has the potential to be a huge factor in the purchase choice of the serious, more volume-conscious backpacker.

In regards to the suspension systems of the two packs, the more uniform Flyway design has a fixed, unisex torso range, whereas the Redwing allows for more customization with its three body-adjustment straps, large range of torso sizes, and perfect fit suspension. The final distinction between the bags lies in the Redwing's seven additional exterior zippered pockets, making it the more complicated, but user-oriented pack choice.
