About Kelty

Get outfitted with the best outdoors gear with our premium Kelty brand backpacks, sleeping bags and tents at SCHEELS. Colorado-based Kelty was founded by Asher Kelty, considered the inventor of the external-frame backpack for civilian use. That commitment to innovation still shows in the craftsmanship behind every Kelty backpack, tent and sleeping bag. We carry Kelty sleeping bags made with the company’s trademarked hydrophobic DriDown fill to stay dry and comfortable. These durable Kelty sleeping bags have rip-stop shells and dual-slider locking zippers with quilt-through construction and natural-fit foot boxes. Kelty’s famed backpacks have the company’s trademarked Perfect-Fit suspension for fast on-body adjustments. The unique zipper design allows access to the contents from the top or sides. Use the hydration sleeve to carry liquids or a laptop computer inside this backpack with a back panel engineered to stabilize your load.
