A full-size Expedition Series pack for lightweight zealots.

The STEIN 65 is the latest version of the award-winning Stein 62 pack we introduced in 2017. This version truly focuses on maximizing weight efficiency as a full-feature, durable load-hauler in a sub five pound pack. Developed with lighter-weight fabrics and trims, a simplified exterior pocket configuration, and a paired-down compression system, the STEIN 65 is ready for bold, backpacking adventures. Featuring carbon frame stays and lightweight foams, the signature load-bearing prowess of MYSTERY RANCH is now rendered in this bantamweight workhorse.

  • The Mountain Frame is a robust frame that supports large loads. The mainframe is comprised of two vertical composite stays backed with a full-length frame sheet. Through patented features and construction methods, the mainframe transfers the weight of the load into the wings which relay the weight and equalizes the contact around and into the belt. The waist belt cants and conforms over the hips to effectively transfer and distribute the weight and eliminate slippage down over the hips.
  • The patented Futura Yoke easily micro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
  • Convertible Daypack Lid feature
  • Side compression straps
  • Two, exterior pockets
  • Zippered lid compartment
  • Speedzip™ compartment for easy access to sleeping bag
  • Water bottle pockets
  • Hydration reservoir compatible lid and main pack bag
  • Full length, urethane side access zipper for full access to main bag
  • Daisy chain webbing on face of packsack
  • Two ice axe loops for carrying tools
  • 210D & 330D Robic fabric
  • YKK® zippers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stein 65 - my new favorite packI’ve been backpacking for 34 years including 10+ years as a Wilderness Ranger and NOLS Leave No Trace Instructor. Big, heavy packs used to be the name of the game and Dana Designs were kings of load carrying. I had a bomb pack, Glacier, Terraplane, and an Astralplane. I also carried Madden, McHale, Osprey, and Mountain Tools. All good, but the Dana’s were the best imo.Multiple knee surgeries, hamstring reattachment, and aging have had me lightening my load and after going through a string of lightweight packs (Golite, MLD, Zpacks, etc.). All of these were inadequate, immature designs IMO and after reintroducing myself to Dana through Mystery Ranch YouTube videos I realized I needed to return to a pack that was designed by someone with real experience and what a revelation the Stein 65 is. The tried & true familiarity along with the modern innovations is exactly what I have been looking for. My base weight is around 18lbs now and I try never to exceed 30 lbs total but with this pack my load has never felt lighter and is rock solid stable.Thanks Dana and crew - great work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Stein 65 is a nice packA couple of years ago I bought the Stein 62 and used it many times in the High Sierra and loved it. I now have the Stein 65 and also love it. With snow, rain and a bear can and 2 man tent my base load is 19-20 lb including the 4.7 lb Stein 65 pack. Yes, I measured 4.7 lb for the 65. I got the 65 because there were a few things on the 62 that bugged me. Now they are all fixed. With the 65 I can now use the lower external side pockets when a sleeping bag is crammed into the lower compartment. It is a Marmot 15 degree bag that incidentally didn't fit well in the 62 (I needed to free up the divider which was not adjustable on the 62 to fit it in.) Also, I like my tent on the outside but it is difficult to strap a tent (Zpack Duplex) to the outside of the 62. The 65 has straps on the bottom that are perfect for this task. They beefed up some of the zippers and added a place for keys and stuff you just don't want to loose. Also added is place for internal water bag (which I don't use). The connection from the hip belt to the frame is still stiff but a little less so as they have removed some structure. Really can't tell when it is on especially since the older structure could likely carry a moose but alas, it is only a 65L pack so no worries by me. The lid compartment fits better on top and the shroud on the main compartment works better. I have had many packs and the 65 will be my new favorite. I have much lighter packs but there is nothing like a waste band that can transfer nearly all the weight to you hips without sagging, so, I like the comfort of this pack and that is why I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MR Nailed It!!!The Stein packs are the PERFECT balance of weight, comfort, stability and functionality. Like many, I’ve been lugging around Dana Gleason packs since the mid-90s and he continues to innovate and meet the demands of his customers! Anyone who is not an ultra-light elitist should simply purchase and enjoy this pack, hands-down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & FunctionalAfter using the Stein 65 for the first time on a 5 day backpacking trip I am very satisfied with the purchase. I'm a big fan of Mystery Ranch as a business and am happy to finally own a pack. I've never been so comfortable carrying a large pack, the features are very well thought out and well built. The adjust ability is superb, at 5'6" the pack fit me well, although if I was much shorter I could see it having some issues.- The sleeping back storage is easy to access and provides additional support.- The lid has plenty of room for easy access items on the hike, and the ability to convert it into a day pack, although I haven't used it yet seems great. - The side access pocket is very nice for accessing and organizing items in the main compartment.- Two exterior pockets are good for additional storage or moving dirty laundry/garbage into as you get further into a trip.- All the zippers are very nice, water resistant & smooth.- Overall build quality is top-notch, you can tell no steps were skipped or shortcuts taken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of great featuresIt has plenty of pockets and zip up places to stash gear that’s way to get too. The hip belt hauls a lot of weight effortlessly. I do wish it came with built in hip belts pockets like my Sphinx pack. Small issue though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough BagPros: Quality of construction is super high and immediately apparent. Definitely a lifetime bag, no question here. Very comfortable (once fit; see below). Hip supports are firm and work very well. Zipper pocket all the way down the side is sweet. Endless places to store stuff; feels big for a 65. Lots of cool features here. And honestly, the simple color ways are a big part of the reason I originally ordered this bag...when will more companies realize not everyone wants to look like a bag of skittles on the trail? Cons: The amount of adjustability makes it a bit of a pain to fit...recommend enlisting the help of someone else. I couldn't get a true fit until I'd loaded the bag and took on its first real trip. No side pockets on the hip supports/waist band is a let down. Bottle pockets are almost impossible to reach while you're wearing the bag. And this one's more of a comment, but the hip supports are so firm it actually makes loading and storing the bag kind of a challenge—like having little wings that increase the footprint and make it hard to lay on its back. Overall, I'm always impressed with Mystery Ranch gear, and this is no exception.
