    Built for the high country.

    Whether you're gearing up for a week-long backpacking trip that's been in the works for months or you just need a head-clearing escape to the backcountry after a rough week of work, you can count on the Mystery Ranch Glacier Backpack to comfortably carry all the gear you need.

    Pack Mule

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have carried the Dana Design packs in the past and found them to be comfortable, but more than that, loved the durability of them. I have found this pack to be no different.
    I Recently had this pack out for a weekend father/son trip. The bulk of the gear went in my pack as my son is only 9. Although heavy (45 lbs.), the load balanced well, and sat comfortably on my hips and shoulders.
    I did not use the side/zip access feature, but I can see how it would come in handy on longer trips. The top panel storage has plenty of space for your days trail food and other necessary items you might need quick access to. The two back compartments are great for those days when you have to peel some layers off.
    I'm not an ounce counter, and if you are this pack might not be for you, but if you are looking for a quality pack that can take some abuse, this is it.
    Can't wait to get back out on the trail.

    Hip belt misses the Mystery magic

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I've used a Dana Design Terraplane pack since 1997 and have owned several three smaller Mystery Ranch packs. I was excited to replace the Terraplane with the more modern and lighter, and slightly smaller Glacier, since the Dana/Mystery suspension has been nothing short of amazing to me for so many years. The Glacier is well made and has nice features, however the fit of the hip belt is not up to the standards I expected. Other Dana/Mystery products fit me like a glove, with weight melting as soon is I adjust the pack to fit me and adjust the straps. This wasn't the case with the Glacier. The padding doesn't extend forward enough of my hip bones for proper support, and it is more box-shaped then hip-shaped. As an added jab, it's missing the fantastic pockets hip belt pockets on the two medium sized packs, a Legend and smaller 36-liter pack. I am returning the Glacier. The 20 year old Terraplane soldiers on while my search continues.

    So far, amazing

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    So first things first: I plan to come back and leave a more thorough review once I've had the chance to really put this thing through its paces, but since there are currently no reviews here and few elsewhere on the web, I thought it'd be worth leaving some initial thoughts now, just in case others are on the fence about it.

    So far, I've found it to be really comfortable and it seems ridiculously bomber. Obviously, the trade-off for that is weight - this is emphatically not an ultralight pack - but it carries the weight I've put into it so far very comfortably.

    I also really love the options it offers in terms of straps, extra pockets, removable top, etc. I haven't used it much yet - I bought it mostly because I'll need it for a mountaineering trip this June - but it seems really adaptable and customizable.

    Really, the only negatives I can see so far are the weight and the price. But the weight isn't really a problem for me because the pack is so comfortable, and as for the price, well...I'd rather spend $350 once than $200 several times, and this pack *seems* like it's bomber enough that I'll probably still be using it a decade from now.

    That said, I haven't put it though the wringer yet. I promise, Backcountry customers, that I'll return this summer after it's been out in the field on some real trips and leave a more thorough review.
