Rated 5 out of 5 by Cajun Cracker from More uses than marketed for.This is a must accessory for the new frame as it has so many useful applications. No doubt it will haul meat out; and do it comfortably, but so far it has been exceptional for tree stand carry close to your back. I use a small day bag as an attachment to the outer section of webbing. This makes this system a quick set up in case the hogs and deer moved early. I'll post additional info as it gets validated, and I do have a couple of future applications for this set up to haul all our dove stools, dove decoys and camo netting. I additionally plan on using this pack and strap for early Teal season as well. If there is one improvement to be made, I encourage Mystery Ranch to create a small bag for the straps outside and even consider making a Whitetail bag option to better accommodate using the frame with a bag; I own the Whitetail pack and as much as I love it, it doesn't haul a tree stand very well. Are you listening MR? I know you can do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lefty from Simple and effectiveI bought this for packing meat and shed hunting on the guide light frame and it is perfect, I have the older style guide light frame so I had to swap some buckles but it was no problem. 5 stars just what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Todd from I didn't read the discription, that's my bad.I didn't realize when it said "2020 frame" that it was going to have different snaps than my 2017 frame. Other than that, it's a perfect fit. Luckily I had some quick release straps I pirated the snaps off to make it work. All's well that ends well and I'm happy with the quality of product. It just ended up costing some quick release straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmonk_wtp from Awesome constructionI bought this to complement my beartooth 80. I do a lot of day hunts for whitetail on public ground and this gives me load hauling capability with my existing frame when I don’t need my bag. Excellent idea and blaze orange is a great touch. It is bulletproof like all Mystery Ranch Products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tailrotor24 from Great accessory for packing outReceived 2 of thses last week. Today we used them on our Guide Light frames (Mule packs) to pack out an elk. One carried a front qtr, the other a hind qtr. Both did exactly as exoected and I highly recommend it for 1 first time short haul or your 2nd trip way in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lane from Five star reviews every time, and with reason.Just added a MR Marshall to my other SAR and wildland packs. This is already proven as a must-have. The back strap lets the Guide MT frame haul anything without the limitations of the bag dimensions. MR bills this as a way to haul out game but it's much more than that -- use it for firewood, for loading in a blind or large base camp tent or a large comm unit. It's about time there was a pack with the kind of versatility that this back strap provides. I've been finagled it to work as a Shov-It for a Marshall just to hold snowshoes on the back of a full pack. The quick release buckles make it relatively fast to swap out. Quality is first rate with heavy duty construction and materials. I find it's interesting that this back strap comes with a blaze orange back -- I'd guess someone pointed out that a trophy strapped to your pack might make someone think you were a moving stag. Beginning to end, the quality is superb and I'd recommend this with any purchase of a large pack; you'll find constant uses for it. I mostly do incident command for larger SAR operations and find this is possibly the most useful accessory one can own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jake from I’m sure it will work great!I bought the Back Strap on CamoFire to go on my MetCalf. Went to use it in the back country and realized all the buckles were different!!! I bought my Metcalf around 5 years ago. Why change your buckles?! Now I have to buy a new set of buckles for the back strap to work?! I’d still recommend this product but it’s sucks that you buy a $500 pack and try to buy an accessory 4 years later and they change the buckles!
