Will the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF bag fit on the GUIDE LIGHT MT frame?
  • The ULTRA LIGHT METCALF bag is compatible with the GUIDE LIGHT MT frame with a simple modification. To make the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF bag compatible with the GUIDE LIGHT MT frame, remove the HD Gate Keeper Lock from the bottom web compression on the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame and attach it to the bottom compression web on the GUIDE LIGHT MT frame. You can also use the quick attach buckle that comes with our QUICK ATTACH ACCESSORY STRAPS and place two snap attach buckles to the bottom loop of the daisy chain. This will allow for the buckles on the bottom compression strap from the GUIDE LIGHT MT frame to attach to the bottom of the pack.
Can I attach my 2020 to 2023 METCALF bag to the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame?
  • The METCALF bag from 2020 to 2023 is not compatible with the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame, as the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame uses ¾ inch buckles for the OVERLOAD shelf instead of 1-inch buckles.
What type of material does the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame and yoke use?
  • The ULTRA LIGHT MT frame uses Plain Air Mesh material on the interior of the harnessing and 500 Light Plus CORDURA.
Can I attach QUICK ATTACH ZOID bags to the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF?
  • Yes, the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF can accommodate one medium QUICK ATTACH ZOID bag on the side and one small QUICK ATTACH ZOID bag at the top. The older 2020-2023 METCALF has a single option for the medium QUICK ATTACH ZOID bag on the side, whereas the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF 100 can accommodate two medium QUICK ATTACH ZOID bags and one small QUICK ATTACH ZOID bag at the top.
What material is used in the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF bag?
  • The ULTRA LIGHT METCALF bag uses 330 Lite Plus material on the bag. Older 2020-2023 METCALF uses 500 Lite Plus.
What is the daisy chain on the front of the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF for?
  • The daisy chain on ULTRA LIGHT METCALF is for attachment points for extra gear.
Are the small and large FORAGER POCKETS compatible with the ULTRA LIGHT METCALF?
  • Yes, the small FORAGER POCKET is the only size compatible with the updated waist belt because the PALS webbing section is shorter on the more streamlined belt.
Can the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame carry the same amount of weight as the GUIDE LIGHT MT?
  • Yes, the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame is rated to handle the same amount of weight as the GUIDE LIGHT MT.
What are the load lifter adjustments for the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame?
  • The ULTRA LIGHT MT frame can adjust the load lifter height from 22 to 26 inches. This allows for greater adjustments for shorter or longer torsos and finding what is most comfortable for the user.
Can I swap my current yoke and put it on the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame?
  • Expedition harnessing found on the METCALF from years 2020-2023 is not compatible with the ULTRA LIGHT MT frame as it uses a specific yoke attachment.
Where do I find the waist belt size on my pack?
  • The size tag is located on the waistbelt behind the lumbar region.
Why would I choose the new ULTRA LIGHT METCALF over any other pack on the GUIDE LIGHT MT?
  • The ULTRA LIGHT METCALF is for the backcountry hunter who is weight-conscious and prefers a minimalistic design but does not want to sacrifice comfort and durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent pack, but needs some workLove just about everything. Well worth the purchase...too much to go into detail, but the wait belt needs to be wider. Too narrow. Especially when hauling heavy loads. Second. Very frustrating when the hip pouches move all over when you unbuckle the waist belt. They constantly need adjusted when you unbuckle due to the design of how they are held in place by the webbing and only stay tight when the belt is buckled. Last. No external pockets and the pack is a little heavy. If those deer items were addressed, hands down would be the best pack out there. What MR is doing, especially here in 2018 is very promising and exciting. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke during 1st useI bought this pack in March in preparation for hunting season. On my first trip I loaded my Binos, rangefinder, camera, tripod and the mystery ranch water pouch. As I lifter to put it on the strap broke in 2 places my bag hit the ground, broke my camera, rangefinder and dented my swaros. I bought this to haul out elk and deer but it couldn’t even carry this super light load. Hoping I just got a lemon. Wasn’t fun hiking around with one strap. Wasn’t a good look to my client either not to mention the loss of the camera as the water bladder broke ruined it and my rangefinder. Put in a request for a new bag so let’s see what happens

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer!I bought the Metcalf back in early spring. I have used it for shed hunting, summer backpack trips and archery elk. I've packed out two bulls so far this fall. Most recently I returned from a 9 day backcountry archery hunt with my son. He was using the Beartooth. My Metcalf easily hauled all my camp equipment, clothing and 9 days of food. We covered over 50 miles and moved camp every few days. The fit of this backpack makes carrying extreme loads in extreme country doable. The attatched picture is from a successful hunt in Sept 2022 using the metcalf to pack out my camp, a front shoulder and the rack. The Overload feature made this possible and saved me a trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and dependable, it is the best pack ever built for the back country hunter.I first heard about Mystery Ranch when I was deployed in 2012. I thought, "What better proving ground than some of the most demanding conditions in one the most in inhospitable mountain ranges in the world." When I returned stateside, I put a Metcalf on my wishlist for Christmas. On Christmas morning my wife surprised me with a OD Green version of the pack. I've now had this pack for 5 years and I can attest to its construction. It is bulletproof. I've thrown everything at it from oversized loads to demanding environments to small day packing. It does it all and asks for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great packI just recently returned from this years Elk hunt. This was the first time using the MR METCALF. I have many other packs and have become accustom to having lots of organization in a pack. The down side to the pack was needing to get pouches to organize stuff inside the pack, the up side was I got to pick how I organized the stuff with those pouches. Another big plus is I could ride a horse with the pack on just fine with no interference with the horse or saddle. I would purchase another pack again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack-Just make sure it's adjusted right!This is a great pack! Used it for 6 days in the Big Horns. Easily converts from stow it all bag to a slimmed down day pack. Very comfortable with loads. One thing though-make sure you have everything adjusted right. I was able to talk with customer service a few times to get squared away on adjusting the pack. Once the pack was adjusted right, it is very comfortable and can handle good sized loads. Buy with confidence, this is a great pack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great packAs a professional hunting guide I need a great pack. After years of searching for the right pack I finally purchased the Metcalf. This pack is comfortable for a backpacking trip or as an every day pack. After 3-4 years of solid use on my first Metcalf I purchased the new Metcalf in Sitka sub alpine. The new pack design has a better harness and waist belt but both packs are great. The original pack has seen a load of abuse in four years and is still in great condition. My new Metcalf has about 75 trail miles carrying 30-65 lbs and handles great and comfortable.The only thing that can be better is if Mystery Ranch would add an exterior pocket on the body of the pack. When the pack is empty or in daypack/scouting mode things like to fall out of the hood pockets when you open them. Between the exterior buckles on the center body of the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious pack for serious huntersWhen you want to get serious about back country hunting and are tired of poor performing, low quality packs, buck up and invest in a mystery ranch pack. It will most likely be the last pack you will ever buy and you will thank yourself every time you throw it over your shoulders. I bought this pack about 6 months ago after saving up for several months but didn’t get much of a chance to use it until my early season cow hunt. I ended up dropping a good size cow 2.5 miles out and 1400 feet above the road. Thanks to this pack I was able to get that 150 lbs of meat out in three trips by myself. I’m not in great shape by any means but two of those three loads were heavy enough that I could hardly get up off the ground once loaded. This had me pack concerned about my back and shoulders but I honestly did not have one bit of pain in either during the day and a half it took me to pack that cow out. You can keep your ultralight pack, I’m taking the one keeps me smiling the whole pack out.
