Got this because I wanted the swift but it was back ordered and figured I would try this one out -- I needed a larger pack to fit the in between of my 30L day pack and 48L Osprey. I settled on the Swift originally because I wanted something with greater capacity and felt the Rush would be too small. This is a GREAT DAY PACK! I could see a minimalist camper pushing it to an overnight bag. I decided to keep it and use it as my primary daypack along with keeping the Swift for heavier duties (finally shipped!!!).
The Rush carries weight very well and doesn't swing around on you -- had many treacherous creek and downed tree crosses without it shifting like my other pack. There is a water bladder pouch that held my 2L reservoir very well -- biggest gripe is the lack of hose management is an issue. Top compartments and hip belt pockets carry detail items well (the are mesh on the bottom/inside so anything wet in the main compartment will translate to the top 2). Carried up to 30lbs of gear on my recent trip without issue. Because of the time of year, there could have been deep snow, rain, cold, or sunny warmth.....had to bring extra gear on top of my extra emergency supplies since I was alone and backcountry -- 3 liters of water, rain jacket/pants, long sleeve shirt, gaiters, IFAK, ESEE-6 knife, hat/gloves, flashlight, and a few other "just in case" items.
The 3 zipper design makes life very easy and quality is top notch. Frame is excellent and really makes a custom, comfortable fit. Removable waist belt is very comfortable. Haven't removed it for use but tried at home and it's an easy procedure. Lots of attachment points so can be very modular if you like to throw extra stuff on the pack.
Overall, great pack and very happy. Again, only gripe is the lack of hose management for water reservoirs

Frequenty Asked Questions
We're moving to a kitted system so that we can design and build packs and frames that are optimized for integration based on the function of the product. There are some cool new things in the works. In the mean time, we may be able to accommodate pack only orders based on available inventory - contact MR Customer Service or call 406-585-1428
As much as we would like to be able to offer our military/LE/ firefighter customers a discount on our packs, we have government contracts in these markets that prevent us from doing so.
The only repair that we can offer on Dana Design products is a replacement back foam pad on packs with the ArcFlex body panel design. We can ship the foam to you and you can easily install it yourself without having to send the pack in to be repaired. Replacement back foam pads are $15.00 plus $5.00 for shipping.

We are not set up to perform custom work on individual orders and no, we cannot build a pack for you in a custom color. If your concern is in regards to sizing please give us a call at 406-585-1428.
Also, please know that modifying your Mystery Ranch pack may void the lifetime warranty, so please think first before you start ripping straps off and cutting holes in your pack to make it more aerodynamic for winged flight.
First, start by washing your pack with hot water in the shower. Use a mild detergent like Dawn to get minor dirt and grime out of your pack. Dry the pack out of direct sunlight. DO NOT USE HARSH CHEMICALS TO CLEAN YOUR PACK. If you need to get odors/blood out of your hunting pack, please use Atsko Sport-Wash Laundry Detergent
We always recommend that you size down for the waist belt. If you fall in-between sizes on the yoke, we recommend that you size up.

Why did you add a production facility in the Philippines?
We added a production facility at Clark Field in the Philippines because we needed the capacity to build for customers both domestic and abroad who don't require (Berry compliant) U.S. production and / or don't want to pay a premium for products built in the U.S.A
How do I know if the pack I want is made in the US or PI?
It will be noted on the product page on our website and you are always welcome to call us and ask if you don't see the "US" or "world" icons that denote production location.
Is the quality of the packs the same?
Yes. We still seek out the highest quality materials and construction methods available. We have rigorously run through every product and inspected them ourselves to certify the quality of a good matches our US standards. The quality is the same, so much that we have to mark the product so we don't confuse the two ourselves. Our distributors who have received product from the U.S. and from Clark Field have not been able to tell the difference without looking at the label.
How do you ensure the quality is the same?
Our sewers at Clark Field are trained using the same protocol we use in the United States. We spend the time to send our trainers and inspectors to the P.I. to consult and educate the sewers on our methods and quality standards. The short of it: PI production workers are trained by our people, they are our people.
Will Warranty or Repair procedures change?
No, our warranty and repair will remain the same regardless of production location. We hang our hat on being the most durable and comfortable packs on the market and that will not change.
