White Cloud, 1995
Totally stripped of all extraneous and unnecessary features. Even the thread for the word "KELTY" has been taken off, but the logo remains. Weight went from 3.2 lbs to 2.10 lbs.(volume remained the same at 3960-4355!). This is a totally bomb-proof AND ultralight high capacity pack. Size LARGE (18-24 inch torsos). This might be your only chance to pick up a full Spectra Classic Kelty Cloud pack this cheap. Original retail was over $700.00 (in 1995).
WHITE CLOUD SPECS:
High alpine ascents and descents. The Cloud was lighter and smaller in capacity than the Phantom for 1995. The same Spectra fabric (pound for pound five times stronger than Kevlar) gives it the same strength and durability. It's a perfect size for skiing trips and super alpine ascents.

Full Spectra Packs---worth every penny!
Just wanted to clarify some points:
Someone wanted to know why this pack, being 18 years old, is up for sale at the $350.00 price. You have to remember that it is a full Spectra pack that originally sold for over $700.00. Spectra is hard to come by these days because the military is buying up every last bit of it. It's kind of like saying that your asking too much for your used Maserati when i could get a new Ford Focus for less money....the Maserati will have a much higher resale value even when it's older because it's worth it. :D Check the prices of other full Spectra packs from McHale or CiloGear:
Spectra is hard to work with, also, so the price is higher for the packs:
All in all, i believe that the price i am asking is reasonable. I will definitely consider offers and trade/cash deals.
