Mystery Ranch Tower 47
New travel backpack from Mountain Hardware
The design reminds me of Black Diamond's Transit series packs (the Creek Transit, Creek Mandate, and Street Creek), except that BD's packs are smaller (20-32 liters). I'm also reminded of the Mystery Ranch Tower 47, which wasn't designed for travel (and doesn't have a laptop compartment) but is a \*much\* better pack. If I wanted a travel pack I needed to check, the Tower 47 would be on my short list.

Carry-on

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
definitely worth it
Haven't found anything I don't like about the pack, except that I am skinny so the straps are kind of long lol. I've taken it on 3-4 climbing trips now. I love the webbing straps which can secure a stick clip really well, the side handle while I'm at the air port, the top pocket, all the pocket stas...

Pacsafe MetroSafe LS350 ECONYL Daypack
I am very happy with this purchase so far.
I just received this and it is well made, comfortable and looks very secure. It has nice division of space with pockets inside the two sections. The straps are padded and so is the back of the pack which lays against my back. The zippers have clasps that can be secured if you wish and the one strap ...

Comfort

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
Best comfort, organization and build quality
I’m pleasantly shocked with my new forever climbing pack! Surprisingly, there are not many reviews to be found about this amazing pack; however, after much research (with a fine toothed comb), I narrowed down my search to this ultimate climbing mule pack / haul bag / crag pack (and more?) -

I have traveled the world and not had a problem with someone stealing from my pack. However, I am sure sure if it was me or just luck. I'm planning a trip through Italy and have been there a couple of times before. However, I needed a new day pack and looking into a Pacsafe, but I have used North Fa...
