Zipper

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/9)

Plus, the laptop compartment is sealed with one of those YKK AquaGuard zippers we were talking about earlier. Although this compartment is not waterproof, we like the added weather-resistance for our laptop.

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/7)

I have been using the 2DayAssault for about 60 days straight. My biggest criteria for purchasing this bag was the rear pocket zipper for the laptop. I have a 15" MacBook Pro and it fits easily in the laptop pocket with easy access from rear pocket zipper or through the top. I use the bag daily for work but I have also taken two 4day weekend trips with nothing more than the 2DayAssault

Strap

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/4)

The only downside of these straps? There are no elastic keepers to tidy up the excess dangly-ness. There’s also no option for a hip belt, but at 24 liters we don’t think you’ll need one—especially not with how comfortable this pack is, even when loaded to the max.

I’m a 5’5 woman and after adjusting the straps I can carry it with ease. The MOLLE straps will make it easy to attach things that need to be within easy reach/removable (I’ll probably swap my med kit into a pouch to attach versus keeping the items in the pack). And the inner pockets and pouches are all organized symmetrically in a way that makes sense, which makes it super easy to find items in a full pack.

Laptop

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/11)

When you open up this pocket, you’ll see a laptop sleeve. On the front of the laptop sleeve, there’s a smaller tablet pocket. There’s also some elastic attached to the side of this whole unit which helps keep things tidy. This sleeve also has a false bottom, so if you drop your bag abruptly, your laptop won’t suffer the consequences—which we love

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/5)

I have a beefy Alienware 17" laptop with dimensions that exceed 17" and was able to easily fit it within the main section of the pack, but I think you would need a protective sleeve for your 17" laptop because despite the low weight of the pack, the netted pockets within it are quite heavy duty and somewhat abrasive. You could however fit the brick with cord in the laptop pocket unless of course you were going for battery power only.

Compartment

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/4)

Like we said earlier, this is the first Mystery Ranch bag we’ve tested with this style of pocket—and so far, we’re digging it. This tri-zip design is meant to give you quick access to the inside of the pack—just grab the lid and pull it open.

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/7)

So really like the implementation here, really great, that you don't have to open the bag up fully and worry about things falling out. If you just need to grab something from the top and then if you do want to access kind of the full compartment for easier packing or to get to things that are on the bottom, you have to release the buckles, and then you can open up this Kind of duffel style opening here that gives you a nice wide view of everything that's on the inside, and so, as I mentioned a little bit earlier, this compartment has 27 liters of space, and I was very impressed with how much I was actually able to hold. Definitely enough items to take me for up to a week or two weeks of travel, depending on how minimally I want to pack, and I really liked that, even though I put a lot of stuff in here, the compartment doesn't feel like it's exploding and so jumping In the first thing that I have here is my ear dot kit. Next up, I have a smaller packing cube that has my t-shirts and socks and smaller clothing items, and then I also have a smaller pair of shoes

Carry-on

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/3)

I bought it for a friend this Xmas since we were heading to New Zealand and he was looking for a good carry on/EDC to get through the trip and beyond. This was a great option. He loved it and it seems to address the challenge I always had slipping laptop in and out of my 21 when loaded up. It was his new favorite pack

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/6)

As much as we'd love to, we're just not able review every piece of carry in the world. But rest assured, we've done the research (so you don't have to) to make sure this piece is awesome. For us, it ticks all the boxes of what makes great carry and we're stoked to recommend it.

Commute

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/2)

I bought the UA 24 as a bike commuter bag and briefcase substitute ( I also have the MR 3-way briefcase but could not carry a thermos/water bottle well). The quality and attention matched what I expect from Mystery Ranch. However, the external pockets barely fit a Kleen Kanteen/Hydroflask etc. 32oz bottle that are very mainstream right now

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

great bag! I use it as a commuter bag to work as a construction worker and so far so good. I keep med kit, coat, lunch and random other stuff. Very comfortable and durable thus far.

Size

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/7)

Overall I wish that the top pocket was a touch bigger - as it is now, it feels a bit cramped, especially as it does not use all the space to the "point" of the top flap, instead only occupying a rectangle sewn in.

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/1)

I'd say it might be over 30 liters, but when I compare it to the 34L GR2, it feels smaller, which is why I stuck to 30L for my real world sizing on it.

Comfort

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/5)

Comfort - I don't have to wear this long under normal conditions, but I don't even notice when it is on, due to the amazing padding and comfort without causing back sweat.

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/8)

The options for adjustments are perfect allowing me to get a great fit and seated perfectly along my back and shoulders, I hate packs that hang low because that unsettling center of gravity gets tiring after a while. On the other hand it is easy to adjust the straps on the move which is nice because if anyone has ever worn a pack for an extended period of time, then you know how nice it is to loosen, tighten, and switch to sling mode here and there to help free up spots on your back that get too hot over time because even with breathable material like that present on this pack, the bottom line is that there is still weight pushing material along your back and you will still get hot depending on how long you wear the pack. The primary harnesses are thick and comfortable, even when I loaded the pack for weight I didn't feel anything digging into my shoulders. I'm used to seeing red marks on my shoulders with other packs and this comfort is something I'm not used to

Hiking

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

(1/3)

I use this pack in wood waxed and the matching Full Moon hip/butt pack on a three day hike through the Grand Canyon. I would not recommend this application for everyone as I traveled extremely light for a multi day hike but both packs performed exquisitely. From the difficult hike in, through the bushwhacking in the canyon, to the treacherous climb out I could rely on them to keep my stuff both secure and comfortable on my body. They show little signs of wear even after being dragged across rocks that cut up my boot soles

MYSTERY RANCH 2 Day Assault Pack

(1/3)

I took this out on a ten mile hike over a somewhat short mountain. It performed adequately. Overall, I feel like I'm a bit large to use this pack. The straps of the waist belt aren't sewn in, just threaded through buckles, and both ends pulled free while I hiked
