BOULDER (July 10, 2018) – Kelty, a leader in innovative adventure gear and everyday outdoor products, debuts its spring 2019 line of trail packs, tents, sleeping bags, camp kitchen cookware and organization bags combining performance, comfort and ease-of-use. Designed to make the outdoor experience more accessible, the line includes: NadaTech™ suspension, a proprietary system in trail packs for enhanced breathability; Quick Corners, enabling easy one-person tent setup; Camp Kitchen cookware that includes Preserve recycled dishware that nestles into one pot; and the “Get Your Sh*t Together” (GYST) collection of durable, stowable organization bags and totes. Products will be on display at the Kelty booth (#42031-UL) at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2018 in Denver, January 23 – 26, and available online and at specialty retail beginning spring 2019.

"Our technology is engineered to make the outdoors more welcoming for everyday consumers, while introducing new performance features for avid outdoor enthusiasts,” said Eric Greene, senior vice president and general manager of Kelty. “Our 2019 line merges inspiration from Kelty’s 66-year history with thoughtful features encouraging spontaneous outdoor play from backyard campouts to backcountry adventures to lunchbreak hikes.”

Trail Packs

Providing comfort and performance for experienced hikers and newcomers, Kelty’s Zyro and Zyp trail packs introduce NadaTech™ suspension minimizing contact points on the user’s back to increase breathability and decrease sweat accumulation. Both packs use Kelty’s PerfectFIT™ technology enabling on-body torso fit adjustment on the fly. Zyro is available in four styles including two women-specific styles; Zyro 54W and 64W. Zyro 68 is one of the lightest backpacking packs in its class, weighing just four pounds, four ounces. Zyp is available in six styles including three for women; Zyp 28W, 38W and 48W.


Tents and Shelter

Night Owl and Late Start tents feature Kelty’s Quick Corners technology combining self-standing tent poles with extended pole sleeves at each corner enabling easy one-person setup in a rush. The All Inn tent uses the Genius ventilation system combining lightweight fabrics with multiple zip-open windows and door options providing enhanced airflow in warmer weather. All Inn is available in two-person and three-person styles, both featuring an outward leaning foot box that makes its living space larger than its footprint. The All Inn two-person style features nearly 28 square feet of living space and weighs just three pounds, 14 ounces, while the three-person version affords almost 39 square feet of space and weighs only four pounds, 15 ounces. All new tents include the new Shark Mouth stuff sack for simple storage and transport.


Providing big group shade and shelter, the new Big Shady goes beyond the traditional pop-up shelter combining a low-angle design for sun and rain protection with substantial space to relax and easy set-up capability. Key features include four interior storage pockets, a door-like front entryway and a duffle bag carry sack for easy transport.


Sleeping Bags

Cosmic, the industry’s number two best-selling sleeping bag in 2017 according to NPD, is enhanced for 2019 with a soft and durable nylon taffeta shell that makes the bag five ounces lighter.

The new Stardust mummy bag is ideal for backpacking, featuring ThermaPro™ Max synthetic insulation engineered to retain warmth and provide superior breathability. Available in men and women’s 15-degree and 30-degree styles beginning at just three pounds, three ounces, Stardust features an anti-snag zipper draft tube, an internal electronics pocket, a compression stuff sack and is available in four colors.


Camp Kitchen and Organization

Camp Kitchen includes durable 304 stainless steel pots and pans that nest neatly into one pot plus dishes and utensils for four. The utensil set includes steak knives that will actually cut steak. In an exclusive collaboration with Preserve, 100% recycled Everyday Dishes are color-coded for easy identification, BPA and melamine-free, dishwasher safe and designed to be reused forever. Camp Kitchen is Preserve’s first product specifically designed for the outdoors.

The “Get Your Sh*t Together” (GYST) collection of bags and totes makes it easy to organize and transport necessities to and from the campsite and back to the garage. Original G and Big G feature a sturdy steel wire frame to hold shape, a completely collapsible design for easy stowing, webbing shoulder straps and side handles for convenient carrying, durable polyester exterior fabric and an easy-to-clean interior lining.
