How do you make a classic even better' You could add bacon, and while that's almost always an improvement, it's probably better that the designers at Kelty kept the pork products away from the Redwing 44 Backpack. Instead, they outfitted this overnighter with a new hydration sleeve that doubles as a laptop pocket when your travels are in the airport instead of on the trail, and hooked up a new front pocket that makes it easy to stash a rain shell or fleece when you're on the move in variable conditions.The rest of the Redwing is unchanged from the rugged polyester fabric, to the single LightBeam aluminum stay, and the strong but flexible HDPE framesheet. These help stabilize your load and disperse the weight between your shoulders and hips, while the breathable Hex Mesh backpanel, shoulder straps, and hip belt keep you cool when the trail is hot and dusty. You can also remove the hipbelt if you feel the need to go light and fast on your way to the summit, and stash your trekking poles and ice axes in the loops for easy scrambling. Kelty topped the Redwing off with pockets at the sides, front, and back for easy access to all your key gear, and even built in a hideaway daisy chain that lets you strap sleeping pads and wet layers onto the outside of your pack.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
