The Mystery Ranch 3 day Assault backpack got several good reviews and was voted one of the top 10 Special Forces backpacks at SEALgrinderPT.
I have been reading a ton of reviews and checking out this pack for quite a while. I thought it would be made for what I am doing which is backcountry travel. It was a little bit more expensive but I was super glad I got it as you can tell right off the bat that it is high quality. It is really comfortable and has lots of pockets for arranging the load.
I have owned North American Rescue, Petzel and Osprey packs and this one is the best of them all.
