Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Daypack LID as an OP bag.From using this sense 2012. I have to say I am please with the quality and durability of the Daypack Lid. I have used this bag as an OP bag, shooting bag, shooting platform, Optics bag. I at first admit that I thought the Daypack was too small at first, but I can fit 1DOS of chow 2 liters of water and a couple of 5-hour energies in the top pouch alone. I have also fitted a camera, V-21B LRF (yes they are still around), couple of 148 batteries and extra socks. The idea of the Daypack can be clipped to the top of the pack is an answer to me for ditch and run situations for obvious reasons. I do however wish that there is other designs for the main pouch for different items that may need to be carried. All in all, hands down I don't want to try another OP bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jhol97 from might be worth your moneyI bought this day pack to replace the lid on my mystery ranch SATL that ive had for so long. I had two reasons for purchasing this pack; 1 to add extra storage to my SATL and 2 to serve as a hydration pack to hold my source bladder.This pack shined in increasing the load capacity by almost double of the lid that the SATL came with. so 5 stars there. however in using this product as a hydration pack to hold your bladder it falls a little short but its not the packs fault. there are no horizontal bladder that can really fit the tubular shape of the cavities of the pack. with that one downfall the pack is great. its water resistant, light weight, and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt w from Probably a good lid...Seems to be the quality expected from Mystery Ranch ... except your pack may or may not come with attachment points... I bought this to put on a pintler knowing it would just snap on, but i also didnt expect for the price that no extra hardware would be included. Especially since the buckles they use at ranch are not readily available in stores and only available online in packs of 10 or more, if you can find them. Long story short if your pack is set up for it, probably work well. If it's not expect to spend more money and time finding buckles and other hardware to attach it...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alan from Poorly executed.Doesnât mate tightly with the NICE frame if you have a pack attached to it. Flops around and adds weight to the top of your frame. As a separate day pack the straps have little support or heft, causing them to dig into your shoulders and pinch the sides of your back/underarms. It just hasn't been thought through well enough. As a Mystery Ranch product it is essentially indestructable, but you don't want to carry it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JSatclaire from Weaker straps, carries worse than earlier versionsBought this to replicate the good 'fast & light' daypack experience I had with the daypack lid from a tactiplane I no longer own. But this version's shoulder straps have no webbing in them, just fabric connected to the top of the pack, so there's almost no lift provided and it carries even light loads really badly. Add in the lack of a sternum strap, and it's a bomb-proof lid I'll never use. Time to go find a used tactiplane lid I guess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great short term OP bag.I gotta say I really like this pack. I have used it in conjunction with the overload pack for extras that I need for field maneuvers. Over our last annual training I was able to make better use out of the pack as a 12hr OP/LP pack. I was able to fit an LTLM along with an extra battery cassette, loads of extra double A battery for the optic, an extra BB-2590/U battery for my Radio, an MRE (2 if I broke them down) along with a map,notebook and protractor and a little room to spare.The pack was great for moving both in and out of Humvee patrols with its compact size and carry capacity, you could always keep the pack with you no matter where you went. The problem I had with it was with the hinge in the middle of the pack. The hinge is key to the design as a pack lid but as a pack ,sometimes has a tendency to fold up on itself making the pack uncomfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CommSoFar from Really awesome!I bought this daypack lid in March of 2021. I was hopeful but unsure of how much I'd like it or even use it, but I had a plan. I bought a conversation kit for my Komodo Dragon and 3DAP and used the daypack lid initially on the 3DAP and was disappointed, but I moved it to my Komodo Dragon and I realized how much this really works.I planned a flight and needed a way to carry a spare pair of shoes, and the lower pocket on the daypack lid is perfect. It holds a pair of shoes + a few other small items. (A pair of shorts, a couple packs of travel tissues, and a pack of cigarettes).I packed quite a bit into the lid and I have to say I am very pleased with this things overall storage capacity and overall usefulness.Note: if you do put this lid on a Komodo Dragon, it is too tall for the overhead bin on a Southwest flight, so you will have to unclip and lay it flat. (Too tall meaning, laying the pack on its back, and the lid is raised up from the main zip too much).

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnK from Awesome additionI run an older Crewcab pack and I just recently moved to Alaska. The crewcab is an awesome load hauler, but I needed a little more space to store gear so I bought the daypack lid to see if it would work. It is awesome. It's nothing fancy, two big zipper pockets that can hold my tent in one and my raingear and jet boil kit in the other. The big value is that is give my crewcab a "top" now, which helps protect other gear I am hauling in the main compartment. It works great and extends my range signficantly. I haven't tried to detach it and use it as a daypack, but you could easily do that as its just a couple of buckles. As with everything Mystery Ranch, outstanding build quality and durability. My only regret is that I have waited this long to buy the dang thing.
