The Mystery Ranch T-100 Pack is a monster backpack for backcountry excursions and expeditions. Seriously, it dwarfs the Terraplane by 20 liters, providing you with 100L of space for this, that, and all the extras. Down low you'll find a specific spot just for your sleeping bag, straps for a sleeping pad and ice axe loops for holding onto your axes when entering snowy, icy, mountain conditions. The top-loading pack features side zippers so you can access items that are in the middle without having to remove all your other gear first. The vertical torpedo pockets house smaller items with quick access, as does the front pocket and lid. The mountain frame helps position the weight of the gear comfortably upon your back.

Pro’s and Con’s
First, let me say that this is one great comfortable well built pack. The way this thing rides on my back is like no other. (I own a Kelty Red Cloud, Osprey Atmos and a couple smaller packs) The craftsmanship of this pack is way above the others and carry’s loads of 30 – 50 lbs very easily. It will carry more but that’s all I have put in it so far.
Now, for a few minor con’s but important ones to me anyway. This pack does not have the little clip attachment inside the lid for attaching a small wallet and or keys. To me this is a very necessary little piece of the equipment. I hate carrying keys and wallet in my pants pockets. I love and have come to depend on this little piece in my other packs for always knowing where my keys, ID and some cash are. Now with the T-100 I fear having to fish around for where I put these items or worse, them falling out unknowingly on the trail somewhere when I opened the lid for a compass, map, wipe or other little items I tend to keep in the lid close at hand. Next is the hydration issue. I found the two slots on either side at the top to run the hose out but there is no pocket on the inside of the bag to insert a hydration bag next to the frame side. This pack is so massive; the hydration bag gets mashed in with all the other gear and if hiking long distances before unloading the pack, make it difficult to remove the hydration bladder to refill. Plus, it slides to the very bottom of the pack and puts a strain on the hose. Last is the lack of those small pockets in the belt that I use to keep a small camera, some bug spray, sunscreen or sometimes a few meds that make it super easy to get to on the trail while walking. These may seem minor and I guess they are but Dana and crew could have added these (at least the 1st 2) with little to no extra cost and weight to the pack.
I really love this pack and can see it lasting longer than I can continue hiking and camping. Just wish the few little details mentioned above would have been added. Especially the little clip for the wallet and keys… Rick
