Anyone using this pack...Intriguing!
Packed out an elk with it last sept... great day pack. It's a decent load hauler and way better as day pack then most packs even compressed down. For perspective I also own Kifaru, on MR.....
Excellent Trial...Thanks for the picture!
Thats pretty cool. Aint never did seen one before!

They are pretty cool...
So the meat goes between the pack and the frame and not actually in the bag? That is a great idea.... got me interested.

It’s also within a pound of my Stone Glacier 5900.
Mystery Ranch packs are all on the heavy side.
Neat pack though.
Franklin, there are a lot of packs that offer that already. Stone glacier, Kuiu to name a couple. Panther, great point........MR can't seem to drop the weight. I'll stick with my SG and have the ability to do overnighters. Just looks like a fun daypack tho.
Yup, 4.5# is a lil chunky...Doesnt leave much room for snacks...Lol
MR packs sit really low.
I like the idea of the more compact frame configuration in day pack mode. I have an Exo frame, which I am very happy with, but not having the added frame height while in hunting mode piques my interest.

I have it and love it! It's great pack, very stout and excellent padding!
They must be doing something right...Depending on size and color, they’re hard to find and backorders are into months, not weeks...
I would think that would be the perfect pack for my whitetail applications. Using a pack to bring stands in on each sit. Stand goes in the meat hauler area. Are MR packs sold through anyone other than the website?
Yup, several places have them that I know of...Black Ovis, Mountain Archery and Optics Planet...Sure there are others!
Scheels sells them
Thanks, found them in stock in Canada. Sorry, found the link on their website. Should have checked before I asked a question I can find the answer to. I swear bowsite has cost me more money than if I'd just become a drug addict.
I need another pack like a hole in the head but this one looks pretty neat. And I haven't bought anything for a while...
Lol...Addicting for sure!

Great frame system for a day pack. Not as comfortable as my NICE frame with 50 lbs but certainly tolerable. The bag layout is okay. I don't really see much utility in the 18 just get the 28 it's marginally heavier and a lot more useful. They said at some point they are coming out with a bigger bag I think 35L.
Well that happened quick lol. This is going to be the CATS MEOW for mobile whitetail hunting with my Lone Wolf and sticks. Out goes the Eberlestock in comes the MR.
Well, yes it did...Lol
Come on Adam, where's the review...?!? Had to order mine, first part of May, hopefully!
Adam....the first step is to admit you’ve got a problem.
Adam, have you played around with this yet?
I wonder how it compares to the Crewcab or Mule (?)
