Can you give me more details? There's lots of Mystery Ranch ones out there.

We actually just had an issue with one of their rucks main flaps blowing apart on lowering under canopy (plastic buckle) which cost the AF a pretty penny...it landed on a dude's windshield and totaled his truck.

So I may be looking to offload one! =)

Iíve called and emailed to no avail. My current employer gave me a gear allowance so I bought a new MR pack.

Guess they don't do customer service anymore. They used to be known for it.

I was curious and emailed mystery ranch because I have a few of their packs and wanted to know if I should avoid them in the future. They emailed me back saying they'd fix it. So if 256 doesn't want it I'll take it and donate to here. I can also give ya the contact info they gave me if you want it.

I have received excellent customer care from MR in the past. I donít recall any delays in communication. And I would not give up my MR packs voluntarily. They are so well thought-out and durable.

They quit making the civilian stuff in Bozeman several years ago. It's now sewn in the Philippines. I believe that the fire stuff and military stuff is still made in the USA because of the Berry Amendment.

Correct. Big price difference as well.

I have a old Dana Design Bridger Pack (MRís predecessor)back from the early Ď90s that accompanied me on many overseas treks, and still have.

I thought the price points were pretty similar which turned me off to keep buying them. I have an old Dana Designs Bomb pack from when I used to Backcountry ski a lot. It's a great pack.

I've had a couple MR hunting packs and honestly think they are way too heavy compared to Kifaru or Stone Glacier, and not nearly as comfortable. But a lot of that stems from the NICE frame which I think had to be Alice compatible.

Dana and Patrick Smith were innovators for sure.

Donít forget the old Gregory packs also.

I had a Moutainsmith pack used much in the mid 80s. Was good at that time - the first internal frame pAck I owned.

I wish I could go buy a new Gregory Rock Creek.
