Rated 5 out of 5 by from Urban AssaultThis is the best EDC bag that I've own to date. I've tried bags from Arcteryx, Chrome, Deuter, LibTech, Mountain Hardwear, Oakley, OR, Patagonia, Timbuk 2, I mean the list goes on. It's the ideal size to pack a laptop, lunch, jacket and water bottle. The inside pockets are great for pens, business cards, a small first aid kit...etc. The top pocket can hold a Oakley hardcase for glasses plus keys and small items. The shoulder straps fit great for broad shoulders and easy to adjust. The zippers are on the stiff side, but close well. The pack performed great during a 45 minute rainstorm too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From Shimane-ken to Tokyo and Back AgainI bought this pack for an 18-day whirlwind trip throughout Japan, visiting family and old friends. From the countryside of Shimane-ken, up to Tokyo (and little beyond that), it supported a lot of long days (and quite a few evenings) of hiking, taking trains and running around. It carried my goretex jacket, all of our necessary paperwork and documentation, a thick book and all my electronics (iPad, phone, etc.), change purse (Japanese coins are ubiquitous and heavy) and some small omiyage (gifts for our family and friends) . Plus a bevy of Japanese snacks and my water bottle! The design and the blue color got quite a few compliments. If you have ever taken a packed Tokyo train, you will appreciate the clean lines on this pack (you won't get hung up or snag as you weave through the crowds). I liked the tri-zip design, as it made it easy to get in and out of the pack and grab stuff that settled to the bottom. This pack did its job well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost PerfectThis is a great EDC pack. The only thing a really wish it had were the elastic-topped stretch side pockets like the Street Fighter has. Otherwise it's a perfect size, with great entry from the 3Zip. One detail I really appreciate is that MR still uses large metal zipper pull tabs on their zippers. I wouldn't recommend this pack if it didn't have those to help make it easy to open and close. The top and interior pockets are nice, though the inside ones would be a little more useful if they were a little larger. And while the mesh they make them out of is useful cause you can see thru it, it's also sometimes frustrating as small items snag on it when you try to get them out. Lastly, and possible most importantly, it carries really well. The nice wide shoulder straps rest on my wider shoulders without pulling or pinching, making it much more comfortable than most 'daypacks' to carry around all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mystery Ranch's jack-of-all-trades EDC bag is great (and could be perfect with a little help)I use the Urban Assault bag as my laptop bag to get to-and-from work. It's got a lot of things going for it that you'd expect from Mystery Ranch. The materials are solid and the manufacturing quality is stellar. The Tri-Zip design is brilliant and allows you to use the bag as a top-loader for quick access while still letting you open the whole thing up for easy packing. It's a comfortable bag, too, though I think it could be made even better in that regard (more on that in a minute). Unlike a lot of other MR bags, there are pretty decent internal organization options: a large pouch for a laptop (or hydration bladder, but not both at the same time because that's how you end up selling your bags to afford a new laptop) and a smaller pouch just below it for chargers/tools/snacks/whatever, both of which sit along the internal framesheet for stability; a zippered pocket on the lid of the bag for stashing sunglasses and other stuff; and two small zipped pockets along the inside flaps of the bag (to either side of the central zipper). A couple things keep it from being a five-star bag for me. The biggest are the shoulder straps. They are very narrow. If you look at the ASAP (the bag this one was likely patterned from), you can see the difference. It's a comfortable enough bag for light duty, but the straps don't feel wide or rigid enough for heavier loads. The inclusion of Mystery Ranch's phenomenal Futura harness (or the similar harnesses you're finding on bags like the Coulee 25) would make this thing perfect, but would also jack the price up accordingly. The only other minor thing I'd like to see on this bag would be some side pockets for water bottles. That said, this is a killer bag for moving stuff around the city. You get a lot of what makes bags like the ASAP so good without the copious MOLLE webbing, making this a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great EDC bag, the 3-way zip is a brilliant designThe construction of this bag is solid, the design is simple and functional. The bag is a great edc for city/office and is a great companion for traveling. I use this bag on a adv-motorcycle and it fits great. A atlas neck brace fits well with the bag and does not restrict any movement when on a motorcycle. The internal pockets on the bag are the right size, and all are easy to access, even with the bag being fully loaded. Also, the bag includes an internal frame, which carries a heavy load well. The frame and carrying straps are by-far the best I have ever experienced in a backpack. Mystery Ranch is a leader in load-carrying equipment for a reason. The bag fits the current items and is only 50% full, leaving plenty of room for extra items when needed. This bag fits: 14" Laptop Laptop power cord & mouse Legal Pad portfolio EDC kits containing spare battery and phone cords First aid kit 1 XL fleece jacket Coffee mug two pairs of sunglasses leather gloves keys, wallet and headphones. If you are already considering this bag, I highly recommend it. The three zip design keeps this bag from being a large sack, it allows for easy access of all items, regardless of how they are packed. I would gladly pay more money for this bag, the current price point makes this an easy bag to buy and use. Dont waste your time and money with all of the $200 plus EDC/Army look-a-like bags that are nothing more then a glorified man-purse. This bag is a great tool for working professionals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best backpack I have ever owned.This is the best backpack I have ever owned. I travel for a living and have been in search of the best backpack I could find. I bought mine through Huckberry and it is awesome. They collaborated with the company to build one with extra thick material and waterproof zippers. The bag is simply the best out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good oneThis is a good pack for everyday use or for a minimalist hiking daypack. A couple of things that I noticed: looking at the pictures you'll see a webbing loop under the lower shoulder strap attachment where you might attach a little hip belt--the new 2017 generation of these does not have that feature. This pack doesn't really need a hip belt so not a big deal, but the pictures should probably reflect the new version. Another thing that would be nice to have is a hydration port. The pack has a sleeve inside that you can use for a laptop, which fits a hydration bladder nicely. The only way to route a tube out is through the middle point where the three zippers meet. So it would seem to make sense to include a port in future models. Also, couple attachment points on the side of the pack would make sense. This would allow the user to run some paracord or webbing through the attachment points on the bottom of the pack allowing a way to strap on a coat or whatever on the outside of the pack. As it is the daisy chain on the bottom has limited function. You can use the fabric loops near the top zippers for this but it is an awkward arrangement. Finally, I'm not sure why there are load lifter straps on this pack? Otherwise bomber construction, functional, roomy, and nice uncluttered looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Pack for MeRugged Quality, Form Fitting Comfort, Holds 15" Laptop, Breathability, Sternum Strap, and USA made. This pack is not USA made, but it met all of my other requirements. Laptop, 32oz Jug, Multi-tool, DJ Headphones, Cables/Chargers, Umbrella, Jacket, Lunch Bag... No Problem. The pack looks more tactical in person than pictures suggest which I appreciate, but realistically, I don't have any Molle attachments so, this is not an issue for me. I do have a LapTop, and for this reason alone I leaned toward The Urban over the ASAP, even though I would have paid more for USA Made. My only criticisms are not deal breakers: 01 They made this pack a one-size-fits-all, and as such, The Straps are unnecessarily long when you pull the pack high on your back. 02 The Grab Handle on top is adequit but it is just a 1" strip of Nylon. I would prefer a beefy handle. 03 Mystery Ranch did not include any velcro area to personalize with patches.
