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.

LOVE this High Quality Backpack with Plenty of Space for Everything I Need
I'm a scoutmaster of a Boy Scout troop and I've purchase many less-expensive backpacks over the years. I tend to be hard on my packs, and I've had a lot of problem with ripping, tearing, straps coming un-stitched and broken zippers on lower quality packs. I was DONE with low-quality packs and was re...

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...

Decent bag
My first backpack and I'm 75% happy. First, I used this to carry 3 days and 2 nights worth of gear. Zephyr 3-person tent - Teton pillow -Teton XXL pad - clothes - food - jet boil - misc items and 10lbs of food/water . The area's you clip the caribinars are terrible if you use the zippers. They slide...

TETON Sports - Mountain Adventurer
A much-needed comparison between this pack and REI's Traverse 65 Liter Women's Pack
Teton, I ordinarily love your stuff so much, but whyyyyy?????? There are too many bells and whistles on your packs, overloading them with a confusing, endless array of straps and buckles, and adding unnecessary weight. My goal was to get a 65 liter backpack that was rugged, well-rated, SIMPLE, easy ...

Hiking

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
Packs great!
I bought this because my old pack was a bomb pack I had for 15 years. This feels exactly the same but lighter. The obvious upgrade/advantage is this pack is perfectly thought out to be a climbing specific pack. I put it through a very long and steep approach today and it performed beautifully.

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?) -

Zipper

Mystery Ranch Tower 47
Phenomenal layout and features!
Love the layout and features. All the internal pockets and gear loops make for easily organizing my climbing gear. Top load and side load option is great. The heavy duty zippers and 1000D Cordura should last for years to come.
