Great bag, but can be improved...
Great pack for everyday excursions, whether hiking, camping, travel, or taking the kids to the zoo. Light, simple, and just right size. Better alternative than the 3DAP as a less tactical and "don't shoot me" bag option. Love the 3DAP for the field, but love the Front when blending in. Great quality build (5 star for quality). But, overall 4 stars b/c the side bottle pockets are useless. Leaning slightly over causes your bottle to fall out. MR should use normal elastic opening like 3DAP, zippers like Terraframe, or omit completely.
I have had and used the 3 Day Assault (gave it to a friend), still have my ASAP, was looking for something a little larger for remote field work. This is a great pack. Would have been perfect if they had just put on a waist strap that tucks into a side slit like the ASAP. A little extra stability when traversing would have been nice. Would have been even better off they had a row of molle on the bottom, just for couple of straps or for the beaver tail I have from the ASAP. I find the harness and shoulder straps just as good as the ASAP. Great quality, love it.
Bad shoulder straps....
We have two urban assault bags, and a Komodo Dragon in our family and the front has the least comfortable shoulder straps of the four bags. The waterproof zippers unzip too easily. The larger top pocket is opened 180 degrees, can lose some items if not careful. Just not quite as well thought out as the other mystery ranch bags we own. Hydration pouch would work well I think, but the shoulder straps are a real deal killer.
I bought the MR Front Pack after using a 3DAP for a couple years. 3DAP has been great for military excursions in all climates, and I've brought it on a few Central American, and European Travel adventures! It is however a bit bigger than necessary for every day use, and the Coyote Color sticks out in normal society!
I ordered the Front Pack in Foliage green. It goes with me everywhere and I've been very satisfied. I was a little worried when i noticed it wasn't made in the USA, but when looking at the product itself you cant really tell anyway! I wouldn't hesitate to order it again and I'd recommend it for Military or civilian use!
