Our nimble, 28 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 28 pack features this innovative, transforming frame that allows day hunters to haul out meat via the OVERLOAD™ feature. This 28 L pack facilitates the minimalist hunting kit. It features Rip-Zip 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.

  • 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.
  • Rip-Zip main compartment access
  • Zippered top and front pockets
  • Hydration reservoir compatible
  • 500D CORDURA® (solids) / 610 HP CORDURA® (camo)
  • YKK® zippers
  • Hypalon in abrasion-prone areas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dayback that is multi-functional when needed.Got a pop up 28 a few month ago as i just need a good comfortable day pack. Opening morning this past weekend, i was lucky enough to get a cow elk archery hunting. Though i had help for the pack out and someone to bring frame packs for the others to use to help, I was able to load up both front quarters on this pack no problem and it did an excellent job. I would have had no problem making 3 trips if needed with this pack to get it out myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Popup 28 is the ultimate day hunting pack!I bought this pack a few weeks in preparation for the hunting season in Montana. Now I'm 6'2" and 265lbs and fairly fit. My son shot his first elk opening weekend and I was able to fit 2 front quarters, back straps, and tenderloins in the pack. I hauled that load just over 2 miles back to the truck, and I felt amazing! I went right back the next morning and grabbed a hind quarter. The pack its self is the perfect size to hike for the day, I think you could even squeeze a overnighter out of it. The only issue I had is one of the buckles broke, but the warranty department was speedy in getting out some replacements. 10 out of 10 on this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 Weekend Warrior PackI was so stoked when I found this at the Western hunting show today as it fit exactly what I needed at a price that I was very welcome to see. The versatility of this pack with its ability to expand will not only make it the perfect day pack or two to three day pack but if you're a true minimalist you can probably do a 5-day hunt with this by packing in camp gear or food in a dry bag with the bag expanded out and then hunting with the just your essentials. Still being able to haul out a full size elk quarter but without all the extra bulk and weight I'm definitely using this for all of my deer hunting and two to three day weekend elk hunts. Being an archery hunter this pack in no way would make you think you should drop it before stalking an animal. And some have learned dropping your pack is never a good idea but this one will definitely not hinder any shot opportunities and barely feels like you're wearing anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate day packBought this pack because I mostly do day hunts from the truck. Liked the idea of a day pack with load hauling capabilities. The first time I used the pack was at the Total Archery Challenge in Big Sky. For a day pack it worked great. Today I was able to put the load hauling to the test. Hauled out a quartered elk with ease. Anyone looking for the ultimate day pack this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend 10/10I recently harvested a beautiful, mature six point bull elk in Utah, spot and stalk, day hunt style. This pack is perfect for that. Plenty of room for day hunt essentials, 3 liter H2O bladder, large spotting scope, and tripod attached to the outside. Luckily it was a relatively short pack out, as I was able to haul the whole elk in three trips with this pack. Although heavy, weight distribution while hauling a front and hind quarter together was excellent. Also handled the awkward head and cape easily and very secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Day Pack and packing quarters out!!I bought this pack three months ago to go to Alaska on a caribou hunt. This pack did it all. Very adjustable to fit height and shoulders! I shot my caribou laying my gun across the pack as the tundra was a bit thick. I put two hind quarters of a caribou on it and tightened all the straps up. The pack was solid and didn’t get loose or shake at all!! I’ve got a great video of the pack in action, but can only load pics.The only suggestion I would make would be to buy some small pouches to put on the belt straps for quick access to some items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pack ever.Great Pack! Took this on a 10 day Elk Hunt. I was in very tough terrain, and this pack was comfortable the entire time. Very well made, with a great fit. The only thing I wish was offered with this pack... the ability to buy the pop up 18 bag. Since packs are removable, I would like the option to have a smaller pack, withought buying a new frame as well. Hoping that mystery ranch will offer that option. Also received a ton of compliments regarding this pack. Everyone in our camp loves the design and light

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, versatile pack!Bought this for an upcoming Colorado Elk hunt. After trying on a ton of other brands I found Mystery Ranch to be absolutely the most comfortable and versatile pack on the market. Weight distribution and comfort is very important to me and this pack does the job well after all the testing so far. Can't wait for my hunt, and I'm 100% confident in the pack and what it will do for me if we need to pack our game out on foot. Thanks!
