A well designed and executed backpack. It is easy to pack a lot of stuff into the backpack thanks to its zippers. The backpack is expensive, but totally worth the price
So far proved to be very convenient
Super bag but hardly stands up when it is not very full.
I only have it for the moment to test on the go and in cross-country on a bike and I don't see any disadvantages for the moment.
In addition, it washes very easily, with a slightly damp sponge.
Very comfortable, many small pocket, love the material and whole setup.
Sexy and sturdy
It is a great backpack, made with good materials and good finishes. the back yoke system adapts well to my height 178cm, and 83kg. But it has a flaw, for me, and that is that it should have a lumbar belt, as if they have other similar mystery ranch models, that's why I didn't give it five stars.
Disappointed with durability considering it’s marketed as a outdoor / military bag. The stitching in the shoulder padding has come apart and the bottom of the shoulder strap has started to fray. The yoke can be replaced but the strap is stitched in, so I’ll have to find someone who can cut and reattach. This bag has never even been outdoors, I use it for my work and gym bag and it isn’t even a year old.
Comfortable and well-adjustable carrying system. The materials and zippers feel high quality. Lots of good pocket solutions. TriZip is great and makes packing a lot easier. Surprisingly spacious. Feels bigger than 27 liters.
Good functionalities in the backpack. I was skeptical about Y-zippers at first, but it has proven to be a very workable solution. The beverage bottle pockets on the side of the backpack are definitely the worst in the backpack. The drink bottle drops out of there really easily because the pocket is not deep enough. The carrying handle is also bad in the backpack, which starts to hurt your fingers when used for a long time if the backpack is heavy.
Product was delivered quickly over a large distance. within 2 weeks I have used this bag as carry on for travel and for commuting to work by bike/public transport. It is comfortable, functional and seems very durable. The price from Varuste was very competitive as well.
Love this back. Great quality, great design.
Use it as EDC/Work/Uni and small weekend trips.
With the MOLLE there is plenty of room for extra stuff to attach on.
Delivery was fast and uncomplicated, no trouble at all. 10/10 would recommend this bag and to shop here.
Good materials and construction, excellent load capacity and distribution of the same, very comfortable backrest, the color is really nice (coyote), time will tell if the construction and sturdiness deserve the name and fame of the brand. Shipping within the agreed terms, absolutely reliable seller I would recommend it to anyone who asks me.
After almost two weeks of daily use, I am largely satisfied.
+ The computer compartment with side access is the best I have tried, without exception. You can easily access a smaller computer from the outside without having to open the main compartment of a fully packed bag. If you have heavy packing, no weight is placed on the zipper, which means that it should last longer. On my previous backpack, it was the zipper to the computer compartment that gave up first. The only downside is that a larger computer can be tricky to get that way. The computer compartment does not reach all the way to the bottom of the bag, which protects the computer and dampens the shock if you put a fully loaded bag a little too heavy on the floor.
+ The carrying system is better than usual on backpacks of this size. If you are going to carry very heavy packing long distances, you may need to look at better options but otherwise this is more than you need. Given the size of the bag, situations where a better carrying system is needed are not so common.
+ Extra compartments: Two small compartments at the top, one of which is much larger than I expected. Additional mesh compartment with zipper inside the bag. Definitely better than most other backs in this size.
The system with three zippers (Y-front) for the main compartment. It is not as flexible if you pack from the top as the "rolltops" I am used to but gives better access if you have the surface to open up the whole bag. Can be a habit so it takes time before I can say for sure if I like it or not.
- The narrow pockets on the inside of the bag at the lower zipper. They are in the way, especially when you do not open the whole bag but pack from the top. I can not see any use for them so I am now thinking about whether I should sew them together or simply get rid of the scissors even though it takes me a while to cut in a new bag.
- No reinforcement on the bottom of the bag. I have worn out many backpacks and the bottom is one of the first things that can come with it.
- The look: The system with sewn-on straps on the outside to be able to build on the bag with more functions (molle) feels completely unnecessary to me. It just gives the bag a less stylish look. Gives maybe more military associations which for me is not positive. The manufacturer has a bag without this (urban assault) which unfortunately is otherwise a much worse alternative. The computer compartment is located on it so that a fully packed bag puts weight on the zipper and the compression straps for the main compartment are missing. However, UA is a bit cheaper.
- The price, this is not a cheap backpack.
Overall, this will be my standard backpack for anything that does not require the larger 80-liter backpack in the future. I have previously worn out about one back a year until my last one which lasted for 7-8 years. Unfortunately, it is no longer manufactured and the manufacturer's alternatives do not meet my needs. Mystery ranch 2DA therefore gets the chance. Given the price, I will be disappointed if this does not last for at least 5 years.
Comfortable backpack to wear, overall quality corresponds to the price. Even with a heavier load, the backpack has no problems squeaking or would be otherwise uncomfortable. The backpack is ideal for EDC. The backpack will be usable for a 2-day hike, but one will have to think about what to take.
I guess no one else can say how Mystery Ranch is good. Y zipper is 5/5, packing is really tight, shopping trips tetrames are nice.
A very well designed and implemented small backpack with the gestures of a bigger backpack. The only downside is that there is no own lead-through to the drink hose but you have to bring it between the zippers.
Strong, well done, it is perhaps Small. Too high a price for a backpack
Sturdy build, well though out details and an incredibly comfortable carrying system. Couldn't be happier.
I use this for day hikes and overnight camping. Occasionally as EDC though it doesn't have as much organizational aspects as some others that are purpose built for it, but it works.
There are a LOT of straps which you might want to "tie or bundle up".
You probably need a friend to help when setting up the harness (makes it a lot easier), and don't do it with an empty backpack. Put about 10lbs or more. Otherwise you will find you need to readjust when you put a real load it. Always test real load conditions BEFORE you go off for that hike.
There's a lot of talk about various backpacks and how comfortable they all are - I can tell you this, its the long hike that you will realize how good this backpack is.
Just bought this backpack and already impressed with the quality and the look. Expensive but you get what you pay, so... Great pack!
Ideal for smaller trips, very robust
Convenient, practical and sturdy
A truly awesome backpack!
Assault pack with tri-zip. Not all straps have holders so they hang free. The interiors are not as well-groomed as is evident in the laptop pocket. Otherwise a full ten.
Very happy with this bag, just right for packing everything I need for a 2 day hike
Incredibly good bag, big enough for 1-2 days of adventure
Very good backpack. The quality seems to be at the rendezvous. Not yet been able to test it in hiking conditions.
For an everyday bag and to go on weekends it is really great. The capacity is really perfect for a weekend or even more (if you travel light enough), neither too small nor too large.
The adjustment system is really perfect. You can go there with your eyes closed :-)
Great product and a super fast shipping from Finland to Australia!!
Not so big as 3DAP and have better inner organization for EDC, 3zip technology is the best.
Carrying comfort and adjustments are good. There are no criticisms of the quality and I have not yet found a similar "configuration".
Very compact and comfortable!
High quality & reasonably large. Works when you have to get to / from the office on weekdays, but also if you are going on a shorter trip over the weekend or working a whole week elsewhere.
The bag itself weighs relatively little. It is robust - have not used it for more than a month but think it will last a very long time. The adjustable shoulder straps are very comfortable. A loaded bag with a laptop, all accessories such as chargers, cords, etc., even clothes do not make the straps rub on the shoulders.
I like their "3-zip" design - convenient way to only open part or all of the bag if you need to dig further down.
Has performed absolutely stellar, extremely comfortable and as far as I can tell, bomb-proof. Would heartily recommend to anyone who needs a new bag. The adjustable yoke is amazing.
Perfect purchase, premium service, well done. The bag presents multiple solutions of use really a very nice product. To advise the color is consistent with the photos on the site.
Great EDC backpack that can also be taken to the forest. Comfort is top notch.
Generally a nice bag with alot of features and usable pouches. Good cushioning on the shoulder pads which compensates for the hip belt, which is only a simple buckle.
It has a lot of webbing which may be to much if you don't have the intention to use it. Please be aware of the bag will have a tactical look even though you buy in neutral colors like foliage.
Good: Nice assault pack, plenty of room for 2 days. Good sternum strap, nice small pocket in lid for sunglasses or small items. Good stow away for tablet/PC in pack. As always, the opening of the pack is easy on MR, maybe one of the best in the market, beats some of the competition out there.
Ex.Arcteryx Assault 30.
Bad: Waist belt is a "normal" model, as the competition - in that size - but would have been nice with a bigger waist belt, as on the MR 3 day assault.
Love this pack, very useful, lots of pockets that help organise your kit. My new EDC pack
A really good backpack. Perfect for smaller excursions, short hikes or trips. It has many good compartments that are easy to access. Perfect with access to a computer without having to open the bag itself. The opening in from makes it easy to pack and access things even at the bottom of the bag.
Still not used, but looks great.
I thought that it was made in USA, but sadly not, it's made in Vietnam.
So maybe too expensive.
Perfect size, well made and very comfortable to carry. It's worth taking the 5 minutes required to dial in the fit but after that there's no fiddling involved.
Great product. Priced and not the easiest to get. That is, just as it should be. The compartments are great and my work as a lecturer is a passel. Respects from the guys, the lunch can fit in the top pocket and the wallet in another. A kilo of books and a pair of work laptops. Plus clothes. Zippers are then seen over time.
EDC Backpack. There is comfortable space after the laptop, salami and snacks. I am 180cm tall and L / XL size with carrying device is undersized. S / M would have been a better size. The backpack has, in its own opinion, a suitable combination of pockets for daily hops and a carrying device that can be used in adventures all over the world. I bought a 5.11 AMP 12 instead of a backpack that lacked a bit of pockets and drink bun holders for my own taste.
