Overall, really great pack


I bought my pack at REI. I actually ended up buying it because I’m 5’1 and none of the other brands would fit. The guy who helped me was excited because it was his first time adjusting a Mystery Ranch pack. He said he gets a number of smaller gals & he was glad to know he has an option for them now. Anyway, I used my pack for the first time this past weekend & overall I’m quite pleased with it.
I wish that either the smallest zip pouch at top, or either of the zip pouches in the waist belt were just a bit wider. My iPhone X that I was using as a camera during the hike was too wide to fit in any of them. I ended up carrying it in my internal coat pocket.
The full zip down to be able to access anything in the pack was great.
When I put items in the Camelbak pouch, it significantly reduced the amount of space in the pack itself. I see having to decide between space for water, or gear an issue. Again, I’m quite pleased with it - just a couple of observations.

Organized and comfortable!


Love, love, love this new pack. I have the Cairn in Charcoal and it is my first experience with Mystery Ranch. Have heard amazing things about the products and needed a new pack for big day and overnight hikes. The tri-zip design is what I first fell in love with. So nice to either reach into the top for something or zip down to access items near the bottom. This also makes it a very nice bag to pack as it's easier to organize. Love that there are two pockets on the lid to organize items by function. The hip belt pockets are a sweet touch as well and handy for small items like the utility tool. The bag is also extremely comfortable and will hold a H2O Reservoir easily. I have filled this bag and it fits so comfortably that I do not notice the extra weight and it fits tight enough that it doesn't swing when climbing through angled rocks and trees. The side pockets are great too but remember to tie in
your bottles to the daisy chain or cinch straps! Thank you MR!
