Why We Like The Mystery Ranch Blitz 35L Backpack

The Mystery Ranch Blitz 35 is a tactical day pack for our daily grind and feral weekend escapes. The internal laptop sleeve and range of external pockets keep us organized for our commutes to work and class, and the 500D CORDURA fabric adds durability and abrasion resistance when we hit the road—or go off-road—to escape the concrete and smog for some mountain air and muddy, dirty fun.

Very good

I bought this pack due the fact that I’m a volunteer Wildland firefighter and I wear mystery ranch gear in that capacity. The only reason I have it 4 not 5 stars is because it doesn’t have molle webbing all down the sides of the pack. This would make it very versatile.As a man on the larger side of things(6’1” 300lbs) mystery ranch is the only pack maker I have found to have packs that fit right for me. I will carry this pack as an EDC/travel/ carryon bag for many years to come. Thank you for making such good products.

Very clever layout

Nice bag overall. Clearly designed by people who travel and go into the field. I really like the top closure. It allows zipper side access and excess storage. The outer pockets have all the right organization compartments. Belt is extremely small. I followed the measurement guide and got a medium, and the belt is not even remotely close. Compression straps on the sides are poorly placed. If you compress the bag then it's hard to retrieve the items in your side bottle pockets. I believe MR already has a model where the belts run inside the bottle pockets. That should be the standard. Or have them right above the opening. Oh, of note - inside you have two distinct pouches for laptop and hydration bladder. Very smart. Should be standard in 2024. Overall I still think this is a good bag, but I'm not ready to call it evolution over the 3-day tri-zip line. The military model tri-zip is still the meter stick of backpacks.

Best Overall Bag You Can Own

I own two of these bags. One is my everyday business-travel bag. The other is my bug-out bag. With the ABC pocket configuration, I'm able to quickly access resources for both utilities. For work/travel, I can quickly access and store valuables, like headphones, keys, pens, sunglasses, and meds without tearing through the whole pack. For my bugout, I love the elastic straps inside the two front pockets. Great for gauge, tourniquets, and gloves. Mystery Ranch doesn't advertise it, but there is an additional secret pocket behind the two front pockets. There's nothing this pack can't do. Also like that the Blitz 35 can extend upwards (a ton) compared to the fixed design of the Blitz 30.

Great pack for what I need! I use it for a daily bag to carry my uniform/gym/change of clothes. I don’t know how well it would be for an every day carry; but for a travel bag/carry on great choice. My only complaint is that some of the straps have a Velcro tie down, while others do not. I would add Velcro “tie downs” to the compartment lid and shoulder straps; no matter what great bag and quality. I also enjoy that you can remove the waist belt when you don’t need it.

Great Well Thought out pack

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 11"

My first order was lost by Fed Ex and Backcountry replaced it with another. So good on them. The pack is comfortable and well thought out. Day 1 I hiked 15 miles through the Florida swamps. All my gear was easy to access. I could easily sustain myself from this pack

Love it

Love how much I can fit in this backpack. The interior bottle pockets keep my water and coffee bottles secure and the laptop compartment fits (just barely) my 16" 16:10 laptop. My only suggestion would be to consider adding more/better excess strap management. I had to buy clips to keep the straps that didn't come with velcro keepers from flapping around while using the pack on my motorcycle.

Blitz 35 Best bang for your buck

Current active duty military. I purchased this pack 2 months ago, just prior to going to dive school. I used it every day to carry dive gear to and from the training area. The pack was often wet due to the environment. There are other better packs on the market but the quality and capability you get for the price this pack is hard to beat.

Blitz35 Thoughts & Drink Tube Clarification

Construction and Design - Yoke adjuster/stiffener system works, get your size right. [MR does know a thing or two regarding backpack frame design, load transfer and earned industry respect with their Guide Light Frame™ and Terraframe systems] - Durable 500D CORDURA® fabric and Coated YKK® #10 Zippers were a good choice. With thoughtful organization and weather resistant design throughout, the Blitz-35 did accomplish the best of features and versatility, though throttled to meet a price-point. These sum-up to a V-Good weight to function ratio (and price). - The Blitz side panel webbing is suitable for two, 2.7L pouches per side (see photo). - Side (elastic band) pockets diameter capacity - barely impedes interior pack space with 3” or less diameter fuel bottle etc. or kidney shaped canteen. (4” dia. will impede some pack interior space) Blitz-35 the Drink Tube Routing The internal padded, laptop sleeve (with exterior side zipper access) will also serve for a hydration pouch with usable drink tube routing (see photos – think price-point). The packs inside back-panel area also has Loop Velcro panel for customized organization options. What’s a Perfect Pack The Perfect Backpack - is a pack that will meet most of your needs without hindering your performance and yet versatile enough to adapt to changes, enabling you to achieve the goal. That said - there is no 'perfect' backpack - the backpack is a tool which varies according to a place and season, guided by the aforementioned principles. Gear isn’t fashion clothing – gear by choice must perform, endure with you and if needed, assist in saving a life. Happy Trails 70's wilderness explorer, former SAR volunteer
