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.

The Y zip is absolute genius, I wish my other packs had this. I like the materials, the style, and the cut.

Laptop

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24

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

I used this and only this for a five night, six day trip to Costa Rica including my 13" MacBook Pro and two pairs of sandals/shoes. I used compression bags and it was a tight fit but it fit. Not real happy when US Customs decided to unpack everything on my way back in. It carried well and I was rarely fighting it

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.

The bag sheds water pretty well we got caught in a few rain showers and the water never soaked into the bag and just beaded up and ran off. My only complaint, and the reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars, is that there isn’t any internal storage options or even an option to add internal storage. I wish that it had either some zippered pockets on the inside that stored out of the way when not in use or some internal molle or some kind of attachment points on the back and sides so that you could add pouches if you wanted to. I had a med kick and another pouch with batteries and a few other items in it and it would have been nice to mount those up higher in the bag to easily find when needed

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

I bought this about a month ago as I wanted something a little smaller than the 2-Day Assault pack. I was not disappointed! Once I fitted it, packed it, and slung it across my back, I fell in love. This was a perfect addition to my air travel collection, and EDC. You can’t go wrong with this pack!

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

I bought this bag to carry everyday to an from work and around town. Has removable waiste belt an is one of the most comfortable bags I’ve carried yet. The front pockets hold a lot of stuff, I was worried items wouldn’t stay in the front pockets but to my surprise the stretchy material has worked great. Would definitely purchase again

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.

I am 6'8" and do alot of hiking. It is almost impossible to find a day pack that fits my torso. I have ordered other day packs that say they fit up to 23 ", but dont. The MR pack is extremely adjustable and customizable, so that you can get a comfortable fit

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 Coulee 25

(1/13)

Very comfortable and convenient. I looked at tons of packs and took a chance on Mystery Ranch over Osprey and I’m glad I did. Seems very durable and has the right amount of pockets, loops, and zippered pouches to accommodate a variety of loads. The shoulder straps and chest/waist belts are adjustable and comfortable

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 Coulee 25

(1/23)

I have the Coulee and it's by far my favorite hiking backpack. The Futura Yoke is the most comfortable harness system I've used on any backpack, even at ridiculous weights. I carried a large truck battery a few miles on it and had no issues.
