Flannel shirts, wooden snowshoes, and the Kelty Mockingbird Backpack, that's all any neo-luddite needs in today's world. One of the first packs Kelty made back in the 1960's, the current Mockingbird is loaded with the same, now vintage, accents. Lightly padded adjustable shoulder straps, leather lash tabs and metal zippers are all part of the retro look. The classic top loading, rucksack style pack has two removable side pockets and a cavernous top pocket, which lashes down with old-fashioned metal ladder lock buckles. There is also an internal organizer, and an ice axe loop for keeping things handy and together. Most of the time, simpler is better, and when all you need is a rugged, hardy rucksack to stuff to the gills, make it the Mockingbird Backpack from Kelty.
