Comfort– The pack is extremely comfortable and Mystery Ranch did well with reinforcing all the high stress points with extra padding. This includes the shoulder pads and the portion of the pack which contacts the wearer’s back. With all of the different points of adjustment, this is truly a one size fits all.
The fact that this pack doesn’t have an actual rigid frame means you definitely need to pack it correctly. The fact that it is constructed primarily of all soft materials means you could potentially end up with a lumpy, lopsided uncomfortable mess. So a person should definitely learn how to pack a backpack if you plan on carrying heavier loads. Mystery Ranch has included all the essentials to get it sitting comfortable and stable. With the support straps and points of adjustment, this pack is like the “Cadillac” of assault packs.
In closing, The Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault CL is a top notch backpack that is extremely durable and versatile. I would definitely recommend this pack to someone if their budget allows. Whether you are hunting, bird-watching, orienteering, conducting a 2-3 day reconnaissance patrol, or just backpacking in the Appalachians, Mystery Ranch’s 3 Day Assault CL won’t do you wrong. I find myself using this pack on an almost daily basis. I have even used it for my gym bag. Like I’ve said a couple times now, versatile! Thanks again, Mystery Ranch.
Big Fred, out!
