Mystery Ranch, a pack company that’s been around for almost 20 years, is known for producing high-quality packs that are loaded with intricate details designed to make your hunt as easy as possible, and they’re built to handle the most rugged conditions.
For 2018, Mystery Ranch unveiled two exciting new pack for women hunters: the Women’s Pintler and the Women’s Metcalf. Both packs feature a harness with narrow shoulder pads and a curved chest strap so they fit comfortably on a woman’s smaller frame and around her bust. They’ve also changed the weight distribution to adapt to a woman’s hips.
This new harnessing system is not a product that they just shrunk and labeled “women’s.” Mystery Ranch has four female designers on their team, and both packs have been vigorously tested by some of the most avid female hunters in the industry. While these packs are a bit pricier than other products on the market, you really get what you pay for. If you’re a serious hunter looking for quality and durability in your pack, these two are sure to deliver.
The Women’s Pintler is specifically designed for backpack hunts and bow hunting. It is available in Optifade Subalpine, Coyote and Foliage, and has an MSRP of $475. The Women’s Pintler features a three-zip design for quick access to gear, bow and rifle carry compression straps, side pockets for carrying tripods or bottles and a telescoping yoke for a custom-fit across the torso.
The Women’s Metcalf is ideal for backpack and day hunts. It features a detachable day lid, a large main packsack, bow and rifle carry compression straps, side zip access and a top loading shroud. The Women’s Metcalf pack is also available in Optifade Subalpine, Coyote and Foliage, and has an MSRP of $525.
