Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cragging!I used this pack for a week in Indian Creek to carry 3 racks of cams, additional wide gear, lots of water and occasionally a rope. It was surprisingly comfortable and highly adjustable to get a perfect fit. I typically have trouble finding backpacks with a tall enough torso and small enough hip belt to fit properly and the S/M size worked great for me. The zipper opening around the main compartment made it super easy to retrieve gear that sunk to the bottom of the pack while my partners had to unpack their whole bags. Plus the side pocket being accessible from both inside and outside of the bag provided quick access for water bottles or guidebooks. Overall I love this pack and can't wait to take it climbing again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I neededThis pack is perfect for my everyday adventures overseas. I needed a cross between an assault pack and a hiking backpack. This pack fit the bill perfectly. I was using the MR 3 day assault pack but the frame sheet was not rigid enough for the heat nor the load I carry. The tower 47 with its stays and more rigid frame sheet fills this gap nicely. All the interior pockets allow me to organize and access my equipment quickly with extra room to spare. The compression straps, attachment loops, and drag handles make this heavy duty pack compact, clean, and easy to handle even with a heavier load. I would have given it 4 stars except, it does not have a dedicated opening for the hydration tube and the hooks on the compression straps are NOT BLACK as pictured. Mine came in silver. Overall, very minor complaints for such a perfect and versatile pack that easily transitions from the jungle, to the mountains, the ocean, and back to the city with comfort and style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found the right one after a lot of searchingIt took me awhile, but I finally got there. After wearing out my ArcTeryx Miura pack some years ago, and because they discontinued it in it's best version, I have been on a crag pack search that has landed me with a few packs that are certainly duds. I won't waste any time mentioning those and simply say that the Tower is the first one I have used that has let me pleasantly surprised with thoughtful features, durable materials, and it comfortable to carry. I have recommended it to several friends and frequently get asked about it when other climbers see it at the crag. Nice work Mystery Ranch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Climbing Pack!A true backpack company now has a a climbing pack! I have had other climbing specific packs but they do not compare to this one. It is very comfortable on the shoulders, back and hips when it is loaded down (no poking of your gear in your back either). The fit and structure makes this great for long approaches too. As far as the organization, this pack brings it! Inside it has gear loops and several pockets for you to choose what works best for you in accessing your gear. When the pack opens up fully, there is structure to the sides, bottom and top so your gear doesn't just spill out. For the size, I can fit all my gear, layers, food/water, guidebook and other essentials in this bag without playing Tetris getting in and out of it. A rope does fit over the top and is very secure but hey, shouldn't your partner carry something?! There are several handles on the pack that seem to be in the right spots when moving the pack around at the crag.The material seems pretty bombproof to last a long time. My uncle swore by Dana Designs packs years back and now I see why in Mystery Ranch! (I am a climber and use my gear a lot!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber PerfectionBought this bag after seeing missing out on it at the AAC auction. I've been looking for the perfect climbing pack for years. Durable, efficient, and able to carry all your gear! I've already drug it through Sierra granite, ORG, and Red Rocks. There isn't another pack that can do it all. It's not designed as a mixed alpine or super lightweight climbing pack but hauling your rack to the crag.... bomber!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basically PerfectDisclaimer: I have not nor will I ever use this backpack for the intended purpose of a climbing pack but the short review is, it really is bombproof and comfortable.I have used this pack four days a week for the last twelve weeks and am impressed. I use it for a wildlife study that involves primarily hiking off trail through steep terrain and often dense vegetation. Despite all of the snagging on branches, using the pack to push my way through a particularly dense patch of shrubs, and occasionally falling and sliding 20 feet on rocky slopes, there isn't a single blemish anywhere on the outside of the pack. The inside mesh has also held up very well even after having objects with sharp edges rubbing against it for 100+ miles.I typically carry three 48 ounce water bottles, a trail camera, cable lock, 50+ sample vials, machete, and various other smaller gear items and this pack carries it very well. The one I used previously would cause a lot of strain on my shoulders and lower back and I haven't had that issue once since starting to use the Tower 47. I spent two years searching for something as comfortable and spacious as a hiking backpack but wasn't willing to get a typical one because the material most likely wouldn't hold up. Finally after repeatedly coming back and looking at Mystery Ranch they released this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome Organization, Miserable to CarryMR really screwed up with this pack. The pack bag is outstanding but the suspension has 3 problems that make it unpleasant to carry. I only kept it because I like the bag so much and was willing to modify it.1) This pack has the dumbest hip belt design I've probably ever seen on a pack intended to carry much weight. Chopping the webbing and replacing the hip belt with any standard 4" padded hip belt solves the problem. I modified the hip belt to act like a normal one.2) The frame sheet is a piece of foam with fiberglass stays, which provide no shape. It dug into my tail bone like I was carrying a wooden box. I added a plastic frame sheet with aluminum stays so that the back panel is shaped to my back and not the load.3) The padded back panel that the yoke slides into stops in the middle of your back, leaving a large edge in an uncomfortable place. I removed the plastic sheet from the yoke which helps, but I will either add padding to the yoke or do some surgery on the back panel. As my pack is currently, it's about 80% better than stock. While these mods weren't difficult, I've been building my own packs for over a decade and certainly wouldn't recommend this pack to the average person.
