Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace your red bag.Great bag! Purchased to replace a standard issue red bag. I fit 2 pair of sandals (shower/off duty), 7 t-shirts, 10 pairs of socks, 7 underwear, Towel, Shave kit, 3 pairs of pants, 1 set of civi’s and a pair of pt shorts. 10 deg. Snugpak mummy bag and a Klymit inflatable pillow. A little room to spare but not much. Only idea for improvement would be buckles so you could attach one of the “top lids” or “big lids” to it for a little extra space. Thanks MR for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Overall PackI think this pack is a much better option than the standard red bag. Haven’t tested it yet but after pulling everything out of the red bag and filling this new Monster I’m very happy with it. Especially for the Cal Fire guys where you have the ability to do laundry on 24 offs. Still got everything I had in my red bag and then some. Much more pockets to organize socks, underwear, or whatever else. Great job Mystery Ranch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 14 day bag for a minimalist.I just received the new Monster Bag. I have been using a very large "Red Bag", not the FSS, but much larger. The Monster is a much more appropriate size for what I need. I can see why there are complaints that it is small, but I don't think it's any smaller than the standard FSS "Red Bag" and the layout and construction is much better. I loaded it with my 14 day setup, a BA Ranger 30 sleeping bag, BA inflatable/insulated sleeping pad, ENO Hammock setup with underquilt and tarp, 3 sets of Merino wool undergarments/socks, 2 sets of Nomex, Down Puffy coat, set of long johns and beanie, pair of civilian shorts/t-shirt, flip flops, headlamp, towel and toiletries. This leaves me very little room for extras, but that will keep me from loading too much stuff. Bottom line is it will work for me. I'd love to see the shoulder straps be removable, that pocket would be great for quick access to a raincoat or toiletries and for me the single carry strap will get the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mystery may have missed the mark on this oneThis is an awesome bag, however as mentioned in the previous review, it's a bit small for a two week assignment, especially in colder weather. As advertised however, it is a very comparable replacement to the standard red bag, if not a bit larger, but fitting a tent inside would be a struggle. The sleeping bag compartment takes up a decent amount of space inside the main compartment and would greatly benefit from a compression strap or two. The backpack straps are quite nice, however they aren't removable and the pocket they stuff into would be perfect for a space blanket or a rain fly. Overall it's an exceptionally well made bag (duh) and is an excellent replacement for a gsa red bag, but perhaps a little limited to be a fully self contained bag for 2 weeks. If you're willing to pack light and utilize the bags within its limitations, it is a great choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag!On first glance out of the the box i thought it might be a little too small to hold my 7 day out of county load out... Boy was i wrong! Not only did it fit everything, but there was tons of room left for gucci items like a yeti coffee cup and a compressible memory foam pillow. I attribute this to the brilliant engineering behind the bags design. Super efficient layout, with top quality materials. From waterproof YKK zippers to stowable shoulder straps. The attention to detail is second to none. A bag like this is an investment that will pay dividends, as it will last a career. Mystery Ranch hit a home run on this one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great conceptGreat concept, the bag is made to last and I love features like the built in laundry bag. It is taller and narrower than the traditional FSS bag, so if your compartments are spec’d around that size you’ll run into some issues. I’m able to fit 8 rolls of shirt+socks+underwear, a set of civilian clothes and a few other things. Fitting a small sleeping bag is about as much sleeping gear as your going to fit unless you get one of the super thin ultralight pads. If you plan on sleeping in a hotel room, trailer or haul a tent separate and work 24’s or have access to laundry you can make this bag work as long as you don’t pack too heavy. If you find that you need to be completely self reliant and consolidated into a single bag for an assignment your probably going to want to go the next size up. Its too bad part of this bag couldn’t be detachable. Myself and others have started carrying small backpacks, so we’re not carrying a giant bag around anytime we shower or go to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a better red bagGreat for a red bag, well made and great organization. The built in laundry bag is genius. This is what I've put in it with some room to spare; in the bottom a sleeping bag, down puffy jacket, and some cold weather base layers; side compartments hold a pair of flip flops in one, inflatable mattress and inflatable pillow in the other; main compartment has 7 long sleeve shirts, 7 undies, 7 pair thick wool socks, extra nomex jacket, civies (shorts and t-shirt), pt shorts and shirt, a toiletry bag, some small trash bags, a headlamp, and tide pods.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too smallLoved the idea of the bag and having all sorts of separate compartments but just too small... could barely hold a week's worth of fire clothes and if you wanted civilian or workout stuff for your days off or covering other stations forget about it! I will be sending back for the bigger fire duffle. Gave 3 stars because it's a nice pack with good design and solid construction. It might work for others just not for me and what my mission requires.
