When you need a day bag to carry all your essentials to and from work, school, or just around town, you need bag that is two things: tough and as simple as can be. You don’t need tons of frills, you just need a dependable place to store your gear, and the lighter and more-streamlined, the better. In other words, you need the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Pack.

Mystery Ranch makes packs for different scenarios, from tactical situations to multi-day hunting and backpacking expeditions, and every piece is designed to be bombproof and versatile. While the brand is relatively new, the Bozeman, Montana-headquartered company’s expertise and experiences goes back decades. Case in point: the Urban Assault Pack.

The Urban Assault Pack really is the definition of slim and streamlined – and that’s what Mystery Ranch wants it to be. It has a super-simple, 3-zip closure that opens up to reveal 21 liters of storage space, including laptop and tablet sleeves that keep your devices closely bound to your back for comfort and stability. A zippered, mesh-lined pocket is built into the lid, including a key clip, and there are two internal zippered pockets for anything else – keys, snacks, phone. The outside is 500D Nylon Cordura (AKA tough) and YKK zippers complete the ensemble. It weighs 2.8 pounds, which isn’t the lightest pack in existence, but makes up for it with ease and durability.

From the city to the trail, the Urban Assault Pack has your back (literally) – everything you need to get going, with nothing to slow you down.  Throw it over your shoulders with those padded straps and get after it.
