Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 21 Review (UA21) | Pack Hacker

[NBD] MR UA 21 Wildfire Black
Ordered the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 21 as my fallback to missing out on the No Escape. The orange and black wildfire color way is awesome and fits perfectly with some of my slings and pouches. Saved some money by getting my No Escape order cancelled too which is a plus I guess. Overall the straps are super comfortable and the size is perfect for everyday.

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 21 Review (1 Month of Use)
I mean you've got, i think, a total of, like maybe two or three inches down there.

So, thanks for taking a look at our review on the mystery ranch urban assault 21

Too Small!
So I have been using this for 5 months now. I absolutely love this bag and it's tactical design with the way all the zippers pull and pockets. But, it simply is way too small and you can't load much into the bottom and center part of the bag. It's weirdly designed in a way where it has more room at ...

Mystery Ranch Packs
I have used the Urban Assault as my EDC bag for 3 years and have even onebagged in several countries with it. My friend wore a mystery ranch pack for 6 months straight when he was a wildland firefighter and really liked his pack too. If you are looking for a well built pack to last you a long time, go with Mystery Ranch.
You Need This Pack

I have gotten more compliments wearing this pack than maybe any other pack I own, and I more or less collect packs. Zip down middle zipper...
