1995 KELTY WHITE CLOUD (Full Spectra Pack). on 04/16/2011 13:53:43 MDT Print View

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! on 04/17/2011 13:28:00 MDT Print View

I disagree. 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. This is like comparing a Ford Focus to a Maserati...the Maserati will have a much higher resale value even when it's older. 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 definately consider offers and trade/cash deals.

Yes, regarding the price this is quite acceptable. Spectra is spectra and Kelty is a respected pack company.

Maybe cast a wider net -- outside continental US? You're shutting out potential buyers from Canada, Europe, Asia, etc. You never know...

something to consider on 04/21/2011 20:11:36 MDT Print View

I'll post some of what I posted to them privately.

They are rare, but this has been greatly modified and is missing all the modular packs that made this a versatile system. It's now basically a Spectra rucksack, which is a very different thing than it was stock. It would probably be better suited for climbing now than for backpacking, but that's obviously a subjective thing that could possibly play into its new value. The value isn't as simple as it was before alteration and the present incompleteness. I could tell you what the last Kelty Spectra 6500 sold for on eBay (February of 2011), and it was complete and unaltered. It wouldn't be fair to compare the two packs, though. They're completely different at this point. However, how else would the market be able to place a "fair" or "good" price on this pack?

Hello.
I realize the date on your post, but is this pack still for sale ?
I am in the market for a good winter pack, and the Cloud fits the bill.

Thanks !
