Simplified, Massive Brother of the HOTSHOT: TL for Top Load.

The simplified brother of the HOTSHOT, our HOTSHOT TL (Top Load) is a trusted HOT TOP. Sliplocks on shoulder pads for adding a saw pad and MR Talk box accessories help make this a companion that carries everything you need to get you to the next shift safe, strong, and healthy. It’s the gas station on your pack, your home away from home and built to last.

  • Framing, structure, support, durability, and adjustability are what set our load bearing Hotshot packs apart from the field of industry-standard web gear. But framing for the Fireline is an art of walking a line that lets the wearer maintain agility and mobility while carrying 50+ lbs. for days on end.
  • Like Voltron, multiple elements combine and work in concert to form a system greater than the sum of its parts. The Fire-specific yoke features our patented Futura adjustment system that telescopically adjusts to any user’s torso length, and houses a framesheet/adjuster whose aircraft-grade 7075 Aluminum stay is pre-curved to match the contour of the upper back. In the body of the bag, HDPE plastic backed by a vertically mounted fiberglass rod form the foundation of the framing, bridging between the yoke and the structure of the Fire belt. A patented lumbar system ties into the structured wings of the belt, completing load transfer through the body to anchor in the hips and core.
  • Fully adjustable Fire Yoke telescopes to fit any torso length and includes sliplock on shoulder pads for adding saw pad and MR Talk Box accessories.
  • Included Hotshot Lid provides 300 cu-in of storage, featuring low-profile admin pocket with pen slots
  • All body-facing components built with spacer mesh materials for moisture transfer and body heat dispersion
  • Wing pockets’ low-cut front enables firefighters to reach fuel and water bottles while wearing the pack. It holds up to three fuel sigg bottles, three FSS Canteens, or water bottles up to 40oz - 64oz.
  • External detail pocket gives easy access to small items like headlamps, flagging, and batteries
  • Fire Belt system features 2” re-direct webbing and PALS web for MOLLE accessories
  • Draw-cord, top-load shroud access to main compartment allows maximum volume, extreme overloads, and internal organization
  • Included Hot Shelter Case MOLLE can be set up for right- or lefthanded deployment and slants away from the body to prevent shelter slap and chafe
  • Internal stretch-woven hydration sleeve with porting
  • Zip-front, panel load access to main compartment
  • Pinstripe reflective ribbon
  • Built of custom spec’d 500D and 1000D CORDURA® with DWR and PU coatings for maximum durability, UV, and weather protection
  • AQUAGUARD® coated YKK® #10 Zippers with nickel-plated sliders provide exceptional weather-resistance and durability
  • Nylon 6,6 hardware
  • Nylon 6,6 webbing
  • Varying density foams provide structure and padding

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last fire pack you'll purchaseI have owned 2 MR Hotshot packs over the course of my career. I purchased my first one over 10 years ago and it is still holding strong with no issues or needs for repair. I recently purchased a new Hotshot pack and donated my old one to another member of the crew.Mystery Ranch has made some changes to the Hotshot since I purchased my first one and they seem all for the best. These packs are rugged, reliable and well designed to meet the needs of any fire line personnel.I have used the MR Hotshot pack while working on a variety of crews over the span of my career including hotshot, engine, helitack and fire use modules.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Top LoadThis is the first Mystery Ranch pack I owned. I now also own the Pintler. Mine is the old version but the fit and comfort is amazing. I bought this pack to use on the fire line while getting my basic certification. However due to my job most likely it will never get used on the line. I thought about selling it but is so handy and so comfortable I decided to keep it. I do use the pack as a day pack all the time. I often carry 30-40 pounds in it during strength training getting ready for hunts. I also use it while clearing local trails. I would recommend it to anyone firefighter or not.. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent packI bought this pack to replace my Crew Boss M-pac. I'm from Virginia so our fires aren't very large or aggressive as you west coast guys have. However we fight fire in some of the most rugged terrain on the east coast. My primary use for this bag is initial attack and some multi day fires. This pack has exceed my expectations. It's small enough to be nimble but large enough to get me through initial attacks last up to 24 hours on the line. This pack is hands down the most comfortable I've ever used. Having multiple herniated disk it makes it hard to be comfortable but this pack definitely allows me to be comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone on a hand line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice improvements!Everything is improved which is nice. Fits my camera mounts easily which is even better!Fire shelter finally fits way better than the last model, mine barely fit without the plastic cover but oh well, awesome job with that. Side bottle pockets are cool with the lower wall design, won’t be struggling to reach back for a sip of water.The elastic bladder pocket inside holds it tight and not like the old one, just a wide pocket, 2x thumbs up!The removable plastic part has a long metal strip which is cool, doesn’t flap down like the old model with the limited length. For those who like their packs low.Awesome improvements and it should be required that EVERYONE should have an updated MR pack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great quality... very heavyI really like the craftsmanship, very well built and well thought out with a ton of great features. However all the extra zippers, buckles, and rugged material make for a very heavy pack. The plastic clip on the top handle makes for a nice place to keep flagging, but I feel it compromises the integrity of the handle. I would really like to see an easily removable shelter pouch brought back, I think that could alleviate some of the weight issues and make the pack more useful for project work. All in all you won't find a higher quality or better designed pack, it's just heavy and I miss some of the older features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best pack out thereUpgraded from a Coaxsher FS-1 Ranger, modtly because I didn't like how loose the pack seemed and it swayed a lot. The HS-TL was instantly better. The straps are far thicker and more comfortable, the design makes you feel like the straps are hugging you. The pack is far more sturdy and doesn't sway. You can tell its quality, even the side walls of the main compartment have a plastic interlining that not only protects your gear but helps the compartment maintain shape for easy packing. I have far more space in this pack as well and the draw strings for the massive side pouches were well thought out and function with ease. I reccomend everyone get one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, well constructed packBought this pack a month ago for Search and Rescue. Really like the lower center of gravity rather than carrying it up high on the shoulders - essential in rough terrain. Truly appreciate the frame, and padded shoulder straps. Waist belt is the best for any pack I’ve seen in this volume range. Got it with the separate Hydro pocket. No matter what anyone says, when a pack is full, a hydration bladder does not fit inside the main compartment well. Couple of small details I’d think would improve the pack: I wish it had a better haul handle at the top of the yolk, molle on the back of the main compartment and pockets would be helpful for specialty kits (prusik bag, medical kit, tracking tools, etc.), lastly I wish it had a Velcro patch for identification patches. BUT I really like the pack so far
