The Metcalf is an all-around workhorse — enough volume for more than a week in the field, but compressible enough for an afternoon stalk. Based around the Guide Light Frame™, the Metcalf has great heavy-weight capacity, and the overload shelf keeps bag contents clean when packing out a carcass. With a detachable lid for day use, side detail pocket, and full-length size zip access, this pack is a favorite among hunters looking for versatility and all-around application.
THE GUIDELIGHT FRAME THE ART & ENGINEERING OF LOAD CARRIAGE™ In designing our 2018 Wilderness Series, we’ve melded decades of pack building craftsmanship & Load Carriage™ know-how into these purpose-built tools. When shouldering the brutal weight necessary for extraction on a backcountry hunt, you need more intelligently engineered, load lifting frame & harness technology to give you the edge over gravity. Because – over the long haul – gravity gone unchecked will break you down. We’re psyched to introduce our new Guide Light Frame™ for 2018, our first frame developed specifically for hunters. Over a year in our R&D think-tank, the GLF is lighter & taller than its predecessors and addresses the unique challenges of hunters with an innovative, load-bearing solution. Designed to get stiffer as you add more weight, this new technology enables you to be more nimble on the hunt and more stabilized on the extraction. At Mystery Ranch, you won’t find any b-grade materials (to save a few nickels or ounces), no corners cut (to save a few minutes in production); our packs are for sportsmen who seek highest quality – both in their hunts and their gear.
