Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality down from previous 3 Day Assault purchaseI have two 3 Day Assaults, a desert camo I purchased about 3 years ago and the black I just purchased 2 months ago. I also have an ASAP and a few other MR products. I have been a big fan; however, this most recent purchase indicates an effort to reduce costs through lower quality build materials. For example:My black 3 Day Assault has much thinner shoulder padding than my Camo 3 Day Assault or my ASAP. Sometimes when I am carrying 20-30 lbs the padding on the new black 3 Day Assault flattens fully and I can feel the liner that maintains the form of the strap. This never happens with my ASAP or earlier 3 Day Assault. In addition, the Cordura material feels thinner. I am not certain if they used 1000D in previous models and now switched to 500D or just went to a different manufacturer. However the difference in material in the new black 3 Day Assault is noticeably different and feels like it will not hold up as long. I am not sure what is going on with the reduced build quality because the price actually increased between the two 3 Day Assault packs I purchased over 3 years or so. Maybe someone from MR will explain after I post this review. I am a big MR fan since they still try to make things in US, which is important to me. I am disappointed to see the quality take a step down, especially considering the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PackI've owned this pack for over 3 years now. It's done literally 100's of miles in the Rocky Mountains and been on just about every continent. I'm not really into the whole EDC trend and I do find that this pack may be a little too technical for EDC, for me anyway. I think it comes into its own on day trips in the outdoors and international travel where there is extended carry with moderate weights. I do not have the live wing upgrade but he hip belt works well without it as long as the weight is below 40lbs. I have a bigger pack by Mystery Ranch with the NICE Frame for longer expeditions and meat hauling. This 3 days assualt pack also works very well as a carry-on bag, and through airports. I wish I would have had gear like this when I was humping rucks in the military. The biggest benefit to a Mystery Ranch product that I've seen is the quality and tightness of the stitching. I've handled and carried gear from many manufacturers including one of their most touted competitors, and upon inspection, Mystery Ranch is head and shoulders above them in construction. I own about half a dozen products from different competitors in the same price range. I've concluded that Mystery Ranch is the most durable and well put together. My 3 day assault pack is as good as the day I bought it. All the paint is worn off the zipper pulls and they are bronze colored now and I've even dusted it with some paint for custom camouflage. At this point I'm thinking this pack will be with me until the end of my active life. Thanks Mystery Ranch. Please don't change the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and well madeI recently received the 3 day assault pack. One of the best made pieces of kits I've seen in a long time. It is very comfortable and sits very well on me when I'm carrying it. There is one niggly thing that could be improved in future version could be added velcro strap ties for all straps. There are velcro strap ties for the many other parts (compression straps), but not for the straps that connect over the shoulder and like to dangle and get caught in things. Other than that, there is nothing else bad I can say about it. If one word would describe it, it would be "solid".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in an EDC role!I purchased this bag with the intention of using it as an everyday bag to go with me anytime I leave the house. I pack a simple change of clothes, a snack, deodorant, my firearm, multitool, pocket knife and some pen and paper. There's is still a lot of room left for anything else I'd need to stowe away during my course of the day. This bag is big but can be cinched down and it becomes a very mobile transportable everyday bag. It has been worth every penny. The materials and craftsmanship makes you proud to own one! If anyone is looking at this as just an EDC bag and you don't go hiking much if at all this bag will fill that EDC role and perform amazingly. Its the most comfortable high end bag I've used to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute best!Absolutely amazing pack. Quality is top notch. This bag will last you a very long time. Excellent choice for avid outdoorsmen. Load beaing capability and comfort are the best I have ever felt. If I had to pick the only con, it would be the fact that MR left off four Velcro strap keepers for some strange reason. It has them on the cinch straps but not the top and lower harness straps?? For the price, such a little mistake seems very foolish. Other than that the 3 day assualt CL is Rock solid

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply GreatI like this bag a lot. I use it daily, for school (college), regularly on hikes, trips, camping, biking, etc, and it meets every need. It's made well, out of durable materials. I don't worry about damaging it on anything, nor do I worry about the things inside the bag getting damaged (when used within reason, of course). It's not an lightweight bag though, just in case you weren't aware of that. That being said, it's not overly heavy for it's construction, and it's zippers are top of the line. I bought it with the padded waistband, which is a must if you are putting any meaningful weight inside, because between the should straps and the waistband, loads are carried very comfortably, easily, and securely for long periods of time. The top lid does tend to flop down over the main pocket then I don't want it to, but that's not a big problem, just a minor annoyance. Also, the strap lengths are quite long, and I'm not a big fan of the roll-over-velcro-up retention system, because it can make adjusting straps troublesome. Owner for nearly a year, and feel this deserves 5 stars, for completely meeting my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pack everI live in Australia and bought two of these packs on recommendation from a mate who used them. I could not be happier with this pack, I have used it extensively for travel, hunting, hiking, fitness, and work. I have this pack with my essentials with me for work everyday. I have used a lot of different gear and packs and this pack is by far the best for many reasons. Firstly it's tough, it can take a beating and still look new. It's also very easy to access gear when you need it due to the Tri zip. But what I love the most is the fact that it fits every occasion, one day it's a military pack, the next it's going on a holiday to the Phillipines, two weeks after its going hunting, then it's with me for work every day. Keep up the great work mystery ranch, love your gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 words: I Love This PackI remember when I started SAR and someone mentioned the Mystery Ranch 3DAP. At first I didn't like the 3DAP because of the price. Then I got into the philosophy of it and finally got lucky to be able to obtain one. I can honestly say this and one other pack by Arc'teryx are my go to packs that I will not hesitate to buy 10 of them. This pack has been with me at my good and bad times in life, and I can say without a doubt that this pack works well in the various scenarios in one's walk of life. I am still amazed by the craftsmanship quality and attention to detail. I cannot believe how many times I've said to myself how great of a pack it is and how comfortable it is under a heavy load, in which it does a Houdini act, making weight disappear. Do not doubt it. It's one of the best packs out there. Buy one. Or buy nine. Your choice.
