I purchased this backpack new at Amazon for $292.64 on October 4, 2017. There was only one seller at that time. It was purchased from a Japanese seller and manufactured in Japan. The Kelty Lakota 65 is a very high priced backpack for a good reason. It the most comfortable backpack money can buy. I toured southeast and midwest on my bicycle with my old Lakota 65. I biked with it on my back for more than 4000 miles of state routes. I should have kept my old Lakota but I gave it away. Notice the picture of the lower bottom front. The zipper has two blue short strings that open the rain cover compartment. To my surprise there is rain cover. This backpack has been hanging up in the closet of my extra bedroom. It is still brand new and unused. I am planning to bike south for the winter and might use it. You can read about the features and specifications below.
