Zyp 48L Backpack

Do you feel that? It's the air between your pack and your back, made possible by the NadaTech suspension in Kelty's new Zip 48L Backpack. The NadaTech suspension system works by reducing back contact to maximize airflow so you don't rock up to camp with a giant sweat stain on your polyester t-shirt. Instead, you can feel the cool alpine breeze as you step over tree roots and gain elevation while aiming for your objective: a snow-capped cirque with a trickling mountain-fed stream nearby.

The cavernous main pocket holds larger gear like tents and sleeping bags with ease, while the smaller, more loose items can be tucked away in the zippered lid, front stash pockets, or zippered hipbelt pockets. When everything has a place, it's easier and less-stressful to set-up and tear-down camp, especially on multi-day, fast-and-light treks through your favorite parcel of public land.

  • Ultralight backpack offers enough space for the essentials
  • NadaTech suspension minimizes contact, maximizes airflow
  • PerfectFit system allows for on-body adjustment, ideal fit
  • Multiple compression straps secure pack for stabilized carry
  • Trekking pole loops quickly stow poles on challenging trail
  • Front pockets perfect for stashing jackets, sandals

        How to Measure Your Torso:
        Measure your torso length by bending your head forward so your chin touches your chest. Feel for the most prominent bump at the back of your neck. Now measure from that point down to an imaginary line connecting the tops of your hips around your back. This works best with a partner's help.
