Mystery Ranch 3 Days Assault Pack (3DAP) Multicam

if your into and dedicated your hobby as a backpack collector, who don’t  recognize Mystery Ranch 3DAP as a top of backpack line brand? personal opinion? it’s the most comfortable backpack. Wanna go hike?fishing? ride a bike with it? school with this pack? travel with this pack? my answer will be: “it’s ready to challenge everywhere,wherever, and whenever you ready”. the shoulder pad and especially for me it kind a helping my back and I don’t feel tired when I’m carrying this 3dap with me. Well, if you’re going to buy this pack, first of all you need to adjust and to choose which yoke that will the right one for you. After you’ve finish decided which yoke you want, you need to consider if you’re going to need waist live wing or not. As a reference, I’m 5’9″ and I’m using MEDIUM Yoke and a Small Waist live wing. the rest is pick what color you want, they have coyote brown, multicam, foliage, black. but the funny thing I saw they have it in OD color but it’s not available on their online store. I guessed it’s a custom order.


the pack itself has 2 compartment, one on the right and the other is on the left of the backpack which allow you to put your water bottle. and not just that, inside of the backpack you can put a hydration bladder, and maximum 3 small jacket with a 13 – 15″ of your laptop or your macbook pro. the 3DAP can fit a lot of stuff. and for me I can survive with this backpack more than a week if I carry this pack everywhere I go.

Mystery Ranch Outsider

Well it’s a good thing I attended to shotshow 2014, since I’m a big fan of Mystery Ranch backpack. and this time I had a chance to checked their outsider. Well they didn’t have outsider display on their shotshow spot but one thing that I wanted to let you know and for those who likes to bring their sling pack or messenger pack, is this pack is solid and very comfortable  for me since the shoulder pad on your left shoulder is thick and you won’t feel any hurt or feel heavy as long you don’t put many things inside this pack. and I’m a person that who always wear any sling pack on my left shoulder so I’m good and I love this pack. As long you don’t fill this pack with lot’s of stuff you will like it, and personally I don’t like to add lot’s of stuff inside this type of pac. since the momentum on this pack will be depend on my left shoulder, I prefer just to bring important stuff such as laptop, my agenda, ipod, and my portable Semi DSLR camera inside this pack. and then as far as I can I pull all the pack strap as tight as I can so this pack look smaller than I thought. basically  this pack is a lil bit big for me but like I told you before, if you want to travel easily and don’t like to carry something big with you, what you can do is pull every strap on this pack as tight as you can but don’t pull too strong cause you might break the strap.

and the other thing that I like from this messenger pack is this pack has a molle system that attached to the shoulder pad which in my experience you can add a small rectangle admin pouches to this pack, which allow you to put your small camera on the front and will make your access to your camera easily and ready to use anytime you want. So you don’t have to put the  pack on the ground, unload it, then reach for camera. I guarantee by that time you already miss lot’s of great moment that you should have taken already with your camera.

To sum up, this pack is very nice for you if you’re a type of person that into with traveling, riding a bike and carry a pack at the sametime. The outsider it self does come with an extra sling strap on the side of the pack which it will stabilize your body with the pack while you’re riding a bike or when you’re going hike with this pack. and also the outsider is for sale at $229 – $263 (it depend on which color you will go with). in my own taste, I like coyote. What about you?
