Our nimble, 18 L hunting daypack with a meat hauling frame.

Borrowing on the Load Carriage™ logic of our Guide Light Frame™, our new POP-UP FRAME packs are a scaled-down design for day hunters who anticipate serious meat hauling. Super heavy-duty 7075 Aluminum pole stays collapse into the packs’ back-panel and compress out of the way when not in use. When it’s time for the pack-out, the frame pops into place (much like tent poles) to support the heavy hauling. The new POP-UP 18 pack features this innovative, transforming frame that allows day hunters to haul out meat via the MYSTERY RANCH OVERLOAD™ feature. This 18 L pack facilitates the minimalist hunting kit. It features top lid access to the main compartment, along with zippered accessory compartments on the lid and the front. The side water bottle pockets and compression securely fit tripods and trekking poles. It sits lower on your back giving you full range of motion in the shoulders for archery hunting and nimble stalks.

  • The external Pop-Up Frame, made with heavy-duty 7075 aluminum pole stays, pops up into place (much like tent poles) to support heavy hauling and collapses into the packs' back panel when not in use. The waist belt system with belt wings allows you to cinch the frame/load onto the hips and distributes the weight evenly.
  • OVERLOAD™ feature provides functional expandability via a load sling between the pack and the frame, allowing you to put the bulk of the weight closest to your back for optimal comfort.
  • The patented Futura Yoke easily micro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
  • Bottom PALS webbing guides compression straps and eliminates shifting
  • Zippered top and front pockets
  • Suited for bow and rifle hunters seeking light and fast hunts
  • 500D CORDURA® (solids) / 610 HP CORDURA® (camo)
  • YKK® zippers
  • Hypalon in abrasion-prone areas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a slick day hunting pack that quickly converts to a capable haulerI’ve had a chance to put my Pop Up 18 through it’s paces. I logged ~ 30 miles with the pack in day pack mode, not a real surprise, but with about 15 lbs it carried wonderfully. What I really wanted to know was how it was going to do hauling. Converting to hauler mode is quick and intuitive. I picked a technical 4-ish mile loop for testing. Three outings with 45 lbs, three with 60 lbs and a single loop with 75 lbs. This was over the course of three weeks. While my legs were pretty punished, I experienced no significant discomfort in my shoulders or hips (some discomfort with the 75 lb load, which isn’t surprising). I think they really hit the mark with this pack. It’s not going to haul as well as some of the heavy haulers, but they don’t offer such a light and compact package for day hunts either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed!I got this pack to replace my Hot Speed that got stolen. I wanted something with a little more volume then my Hot Speed and something that can carry a serious load low on the back so that I can work with it on. I run a Trail Crew in Alaska and this pack is amazing! On the outside I can haul all of my chain saw gear and saw, a 5 gallon bucket full of gravel, tool cases, you name it, and still have room inside for my normal day gear. The suspension is perfect and the pack stays well balanced even with heavy loads. I can't wait for moose season so I can see how well it holds a rear quarter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Puppy rocksBeen doing everything with it from mountain to commute. It works awesome for just about every application I have for it. Any chance I can pick up another with an upgrade to the cam lock buckles? Some awkward loads, like my Pelican cases angle the buckles enough so they slip and loosen. Otherwise, it's been good enough that I haven't touched any of my other packs since I got it a couple months ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility is the name of the game here.Packs great empty, full and with heavy loads. I have had it on for a few miles now and really like the versatility. Its great for hauling in gear and then being able to convert to that smaller sized day pack. One test even involved hauling out my 2 year old that was tired of walking on a short day hike. She loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best day pack availableThe best day pack on the market! If you are looking to go in light and leave with an elk quarter, there is no better option. I hunted 5 days in steep country and hardly knew it was there. It has plenty of space for gear and water, and is still extremely comfortable and easy to wear. I unfortunately didn't get to pack out an elk, but it handled the 50lb sandbag I used to test the pack just fine. This is purpose built and simply the best product of its kind. I wish I had it years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pack!Great pack for day hunting out of a camp or truck plus room to grow for maybe an overnight or two. Hauls weight well as you would expect from MR. I added the 40L dry bag to the overload area and have a sweet overnight setup. Haul camp in the dry bag. Pull it out and drop it and your back hunting with the day pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pack!!!Just put about 5 miles with about 40 pounds on this system and I'm impressed and that's not that easy to do. I put on 300-500 Trail miles working for a 501c placing game cameras in rugged country. This pack is just what the doctor ordered. After using most of the big manufacturer packs I have very high standards for a pack and the fit and finish on this pack is well built and carries well. Thanks Mystery Ranch !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really neat systemComing from another manufacturers lumbar system to the Pop Up 18 wasn't easy. The old Scout I've been using for years needed more capacity. I picked up the Pop Up 18 and couldn't be happier. I love the idea behind this. Definitely order the 25L dry bag as it fits great. I can take this on a day hike, or a week long trip. very solidly built like everything the Ranch makes. The suspension is very comfortable and completely adjustable. I like most everything about it. I have only a few critiques. First, a better webbing management system would be nice. The included Velcro works fine, but maybe something a little more high speed and quicker to remove for adjustment. Even though I don't think I will ever have an issue with the aluminum pole support, It would be nice to include a spare set in a sleeve, built into the pack "just in case". I would have sprung for an additional pair. Lastly, the side, bottom buckles are located right where you would want to slide in a water bottle. Don't know if they could be moved away from the side pockets, but they do tent to sometimes make it difficult to quickly stow a water bottle or trekking poles (take down style). Otherwise minor issues. Great overall pack that provides a super solution for a one pack does it all type person. Really is a clever design!
