Time for a bigger challenge.
When you're ready to step things up from weekend forays in the backcountry to week-plus journeys deep in the wilderness, the Mystery Ranch Terraplane Backpack will be waiting. This time-tested expedition pack provides the storage space, support, and comfort you need when lugging a lot of gear across long distances.
The Terraplane offers enough room to carry everything you need when you know you won't see civilization for many days, the top-loading design helps you pack efficiently, and the side-access zipper lets you reach items on the bottom without taking everything else out. Meanwhile, the Mountain frame ensures support and stability so you can carry it comfortably over technical terrain. Cold nighttime temps won't be a problem, since the Speedzip compartment can stash the warmest, bulkiest sleeping bags. And in case you decide to take a quick hike to check out a nearby peak, the lid detaches to create a convenient hip bag for short trips.

- Q & A
Lousy QC and poor weight transfer
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
-great pack bag. Love that the lid and torpedo pockets aren’t compressed by the main bag. The side pockets are deep and are not made useless by the compression straps. Sleeping bag design is good. The pack is huge with a big opening, which I like. This bag (82L) feels about the same size as the 105L Osprey I wound up with. It's definitely bigger than either the 85L or 88L Ospreys I tried.
-I could not get the pack to effectively transfer weight to my hips. Kept sliding down as others have mentioned. Waistbelt just did not work.
-bad quality. I was shocked to see numerous stitching errors, loose threads, and misrouted shoulder straps on BOTH packs I tried (ordered a second because I thought the first had to be a ringer). In addition, the hipbelt on the second had an obvious and major deformity in the foam. It is made in the Philippines. My Mystery Ranch stuff made in Vietnam is of great quality.
-lazy design. No hipbelt pockets, no key clip in the lid, not even an ice axe keeper like the Glacier has. Come on guys. It says it’s hydration compatible but there is no sleeve for a bladder. Why is there a Mystery Ranch tag stitched right through the sleeping bag compartment, compromising waterproofness? I actually liked the simple design but you need to add a few things and fix the QC issues.
What is the weight limit of this pack?
Hi Blake. Mystery Ranch doesn't quote that, but it's likely about 70 lbs.
