Low-profile silhouette and ingenious organization.

With the same unique 270° zipper access as the Beartooth, the SAWTOOTH 45’s low-profile silhouette and ingenious organization hits the mark for backcountry hunters. Built on our Guide Light MT Frame™ utilizing burly yet lightweight fabrications, it incorporates the patented OVERLOAD™ feature with the a newly designed, quick-attach frame capture for easier access to the shelf for packing out your harvest. It’s roomy enough for a fast and light overnighter as well as being perfectly suited for dawn ‘til dusk hunts where coming out by headlamp is the norm.

  • The new GUIDE LIGHT MT FRAME™ (Mystery Tech) continues the load carriage tradition of the tried- and-true GUIDE LIGHT FRAME™ and its rigid yet dynamic frame system, but with a few discrete changes. Utilizing custom-developed SJ Autolock buckles throughout, this new hardware collection provides the perfect blend of strength and weight. The 500D Light Plus fabric delivers high tensile and tear resistance, key characteristics for a robust, purpose-driven hunting frame.
  • The patented Futura Yoke easily micro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
  • The five-point waist belt incorporates the highly functional Redirect system and delivers solid weight distribution and eliminates slippage over your hips, regardless of the load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great build and awesome features.After careful thought of what could be the best all around pack for a big game hunt or a shed hunting trip I decided to purchase the New Sawtooth 45 Pack. Although I have not taken it out my review is based off taking it out of the package. The foliage color is sleek and gives the pack a robust look. I wondered if the Sawtooth 45 could live up to its expectation as they talked it up in the videos. To be very honest I am mind blown of how the design and texture of the bag exceeded the videos. The frame fit perfect to my body type although I had to make a few adjustments there was not a frown in sight as the pack had every tailored strap to quickly adapt to my body structure. I didn’t believe all the hype from this new line of packs but I’m most definitely a believer now. Buying this pack is the best decision I made in a long time and it’s my greatest investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Ranch Sawtooth 45 pics with gear!Excellent first impression! Full disclosure, I just received this pack a few days ago and have not had a chance to use it. However, I can say that I really like the size and layout of the pack as well as the quality! I wanted to provide folks with some pictures of the stuffed-out pack and some of the gear I had in it. I was looking for picks like this or a comprehensive review before I purchased it. Basically, I filled the pack with most of the essentials (that were easy for me to get to) for an overnight trip with the exception of a water filter and enough food. I stuffed the main compartment with my: Kelty cosmic down 20 degree bag, a sleeping pad, a sleeping bag liner, inflatable pillow, cook kit, game bags, a small lantern, folded up trekking pole, down jacket, and a couple of Mountain House meals. In one of the small internal zip pockets I put my gloves, neck gaiter, and a role of 100 lb paracord. In the outside or lid pocket I had: a fixed blade knife, an outdoor edge removable blade knife and saw, an ammo pouch, headlamp and case, and bino tripod adapter. Strapped to the outside of the pack I had a rain jacket, a 32 ounce water bottle, and a Slik tripod with the Outdoorsman’s pistol grip.I’m not a big fan of water bladders so I probably won’t use one most of the time, that’s why I didn’t include one in the pics.Admittedly most of my hunts are day hunts and the gear I have for overnight trips is not the lightest or most compact available. Overall I think this pack will be great as a daypack and for the occasional overnight trip. In the future I will probably purchase a Mystery Ranch Roll top hauler for longer trips as well as a forager pocket for easy access to small gear and snacks.Hopefully this will help folks decide which pack will suit their needs best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly functional piece of equipment.So happy with my new pack. I have owned many other packs from basic to complex and this bad boy is perfect. The gang at mystery ranch really put out a great pack. I have loaded it up and only worn it around the house and shop... very comfortable!Heading out to do some shed hunting next weekend. I will be back with a report.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PACK IVE OWNEDHave taken it on multiple scouting trips and have no complaints. I previously owned a kifaru pack and I like how the sawtooth even being a smaller pack still has more organization then my older pack and still has the ability to pack quarters out with the load shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Ranch does it againGreat pack for all day or even an over nighter. I haven’t hauled any meat as I just got it a few weeks ago, but I have taken it out on some hikes and loaded it down just to see how it fits. This pack is super comfortable and the new waist belt is great. The MT frame is strong and I have no doubt it will carry out any meat quarter I throw on it. Great quality and customer service as you would expect from Mystery Ranch. Well done!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!Just recently bought the Sawtooth 45. Loaded it up with 30 lbs. for a mother's day hike with the family. It was very comfortable and carried the load well. It's very easy to make the necessary adjustments for a good fit. No complaints so far. Plan on taking it out for some overnighters this summer before archery season. Can't comment on how an elk quarter will ride yet look forward to the upcoming season using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial review on a welcomed pack.This is only an initial review, as I rarely like to give a full equipment review before I extensively ride the horse or test the tires for at least, a full season. This review is for a size S/M Sawtooth 45 pack on the newer LT MT frame. Like many outdoors men, I have and have owned, many packs. Today many brands are specialized to certain niches like load bearing/hauling, lightest climbing weight, integrated bag swap systems etc. I try and specialize my pack systems because in reality, very few can do it all. Owning several different brands, I don’t subscribe to the fanboy fanaticism to any of them; I am just a serious end user. I am also particularly leery of what I have read in reviews or have seen on You Tube of late; and in particular the pack destruction tests that are obviously biased. Clearing that up as to where I stand on my equipment, it’s about a short 5-7” and about 165 lean with a 31” waist. I big game hunt, do outdoor photography, hike, camp and do a lot of camp/bush craft. My pick of the Sawtooth 45 was based upon a lot of hunting, camping and 20+ years military experience. This pack ticked several boxes. The overall build quality is excellent. The new belt system is not only more comfortable than the previous system, it seats on your hips better and adjust with more security. My pack even came in under the specified weight by a few ounces. All snaps and zippers work easily and appear to be very well built. Adjustment and fit was easily done and the pack loaded with 50-60 lbs. was quite comfortable. I have only hiked a couple of 14 mile test hikes with it, yet it is confidence inspiring results based upon that comfort alone. The current size of this bag fits right in the one day to 4 maybe five day size and the ease of adding capacity to this pack could easily extend the carry capacity; especially if you choose to use the load shelf and/or add a lid. If there are any niggles what so ever, it would be in how the belt system is attached to the frame in a permanent fashion. If it were to get cut or torn it may compromise the system as a unit versus just a simple belt change. Aside from this small technical observation I am pretty old school and feel like many about zippers on a radius. That being said, I do trust MR research and experience with zippers and I know they stand behind their packs and products. This pack has great bones to it and it will be tested to its max under a lot of conditions. I do hope MR completes their change over to this frame system and does incorporate the bag changing options and can keep up with the demands of this welcomed projection of theirs. If they do, I will be owning a few more of their packs.
