Rated 2 out of 5 by from DisappointedBeen using this bag for two months as DD to carry work items to/from sites, zippers and overall construction are great. Shoulder straps are so unbelievably cheap for a pack in this price range it's hard to comprehend. They've began fraying and will have no padding inside of 6-8 months by my estimate. This pack does not see extreme duty or any serious miles, hopefully this is an isolated Q/C to the 3 DAP. No matter how good the rest of the pack is I shouldn't have to take it out of the rotation to have shoulder straps repaired prematurely after hardly any real use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, butA few months back my 3DAP was stolen out of my car. I carried it for over 8 years all over the world. Great pack. I bought this most current model as a replacement. I like the new cordura (lighter) fabric, zippers, and laptop pouch. However the shoulder straps lack the robust padding of the previous models and does not have the nice organizational pockets in the too pouch. Mostly for the shoulder straps are why i only gave it four stars. I also highly recommend MR put a zipper or velcro pocket where the plastic back panel is so that the user can quickly change out this panel for one that has aluminum or composite stays. Combined this with more robust shoulder straps the pack can easily accommodate 35 lbs or more comfortably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ergonomics could be improvedThis pack is about the most comfortable tactical backpack one can find, but in comparison to hiking pack brands, one can notice some obvious ergonomic flaws. I had to remove and resow the load lifters closer to the edge , which made a world of difference in shoulder comfort. The plastic backplate is pretty uncomfortable in any situation where I was moving around. It only seems to fit when I stand rigidly, removing it feels way better.

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 3 out of 5 by from Not the same 3 Day assaultOkay, so I've had my original 3 day assault somewhere between 3-4 years (great comfortable pack lots of room) , also bought a Pentler at the same time. ( absolutely fantastic pack for a trim 5 day hunt) Just purchase a 2 and 3 day assault. I'm using the two day for my urban carry everyday pack, its great, plenty of dividers for day use. And carries my laptop with do problems. Very well made fits and carries great. Now the 3 day assault, USA made, MAGA, but this is not near the quality of my original 3 day. Shoulder harnesses suck for this size pack, to thin and go flat, the padding is actually less that on a basic jansport33. for the $400 with shipping I paid I expect at least the quality of my original pack. They work on the two day but I put substantially more weight in the three day as its purpose is completely different. Still great quality but disappointing someone is trying to save a buck and charge me more at same time. Will give to son for school pack and order Kifaru also USA made. MR still great packs find what works and don't look back. I will still recommend but not for anything over 25lbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely Overpriced, Reduced Quality of ProductI really wanted to love this pack as i've had numerous other MR packs in my past (MR Crest, Scapegoat, Scree, Ravine, Etc.), BUT the super thin feel of the 500D "Cordura" and the poorly chosen, super thin shoulder straps/harness (seriously half the thickness/comfort of the previous model 3DAP) really made me question the durability and direction that Mystery Ranch has chosen to take this iconic bag. The shoulder straps/harness are the exact same you'll find in their smaller futura harnessed bags made overseas (I compared to my other bags), WHY WOULD YOU NOT PUT THICKER PADDING IN THE STRAPS IF THIS BAG IS MEANT TO CARRY LARGER/HEAVIER LOADS!?It's extremely sad that i'd prefer their overseas made product, such as the MR Crest which is double layered 500D Cordura throughout the entire bag, over this USA made product. I just can't accept paying the overly high premium price for this USA made bag for such marginal differences in materials/quality/etc. Aside from the laptop sleeve and few additional internal pockets, this is an overpriced MR Scree (1st generation, essentially same dimensions and exterior features) in my mind. Hopefully Mystery Ranch will start to listen to the recent negative feedback and incorporate quality materials and design choices back into your designs before they become even more mainstream to turn a buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well made.All the materials are assembled and built to last, no surprises there. I did find that for the price-point they could have included hook&loop keepers on all the straps. That part was annoying. I did make updates to the zipper lanyards with 550 paracord and some heat-shrink tubing, but that’s my own personal preference. Nothing wrong with the design. The size, fit, and overall design are perfect in my opinion. There’s always something a good-idea fairy can come up with, but in this case you get ever penny-worth back of what you paid for and then some.

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.
