BOULDER, COLO. (For Immediate Release) – Kelty is proud to announce the new for spring 2014 TraiLogic™ PK 50 backpack rose to the top of the pack category as an Outside Magazine Gear of the Show Award winner in recognition of its innovative design, completely zipper-free access, and compartments that allow easy, hassle-free organization and unpacking.

Launched at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Trade Show and part of the new for spring 2014 TraiLogic™ collection of backpacking gear, the PK 50 is the cornerstone of TraiLogic™ line. With conveniently placed compartments that allow for simple, zipper-free packing and unpacking, the PK 50 will appeal to both beginner and experienced backpackers, helping anyone get the most out of time on the trail.

“Outside Magazine has a team of knowledgeable and experienced gear editors who comb through volumes of outdoor equipment each show, so receiving this award is truly a great honor,” said Russell Rowell, VP and Brand Manager for Kelty. “And since Outside only presents a total of five of these during a show with thousands of new products, we’re really thrilled with the recognition.”

The 50-liter PK 50 features a flip-open design to ensure quick packing and unpacking while providing easy access to all your essentials. A detachable clothing compartment on the front keeps apparel organized and accessible while allowing the PK 50 to convert to a 35-liter pack for shorter trips. A stretch mesh pocket is designed to keep your tent highly accessible while a separate sleeping bag compartment is designed to stow your bag with or without a stuff sack. Two ‘wing’ pockets are prefect for standard tent poles and double as compression straps.

Kelty’s TraiLogic™ collection takes a new look at how we experience backpacking with a complete line of easy to use backpacking equipment including backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, and sleep pads. Along with the PK 50, TraiLogic™ features an 800-fill DriDown™ insulated sleeping bag with waterproof panels on the head and foot, a tent with short, packable poles and stargazing fly, and three different sleep pads offering comfort and packability. Designed to work together as a system or separately with any other packs, bags, tents, or sleep pads on the market, Kelty’s TraiLogic™ collection is as versatile as you are, offering all the comfort, convenience, and performance you’ll need for any backcountry experience.
