A lot of bags claim to be the “one bag” you’ll ever need to travel with, whether for work, for play, or for everything in between. But when it comes down to it, many of those bags either don’t have the space or configuration features you need to keep everything organized while you’re on the move, or they’re far too big and cumbersome to bring on shorter trips. Leave it to the gear-savvy adventure seekers at Huckberry to find a bag that can fit the bill. Better yet, rather than finding the perfect bag, they went ahead and built one, tapping renowned outdoor and EDC bag makers Mystery Ranch for this special collaboration. They’ve just launched their travel solution two years in the making: the new Mission Hybrid. And to celebrate its debut, it’s available at a special discount.

In pursuit of pure versatility, the Mission Hybrid was designed to excel in three different carry configurations to handle all your travel and commuting needs. Its three-way design transforms into a backpack, a briefcase, or shoulder bag. It starts with the beefy padded adjustable backpack shoulder straps that were designed for your comfort in mind, not as a mere afterthought. Fully loaded, the bag rides comfortably on your shoulders, especially with the sternum strap snapped into place. And when you get to where you’re going, or you want to change up how you carry the bag, the straps tuck into a dedicated zippered pocket. From there, you can attach the padded shoulder strap to the sturdy D-rings on either side of the bag, or carry the entire package with the dual grip handles, just like a briefcase.

The versatility and comfort in carry that the Mission Hybrid offers you is extremely important, because you can seriously pack this bag chock full of a weekend’s worth of gear with just under 40 liters of space inside and multiple organization spaces to keep everything in order. But even with that generous amount of space, the bag itself is still carry-on compliant and only 4.5 pounds in weight when fully unloaded. And because it’s made out of abrasion-resistant and brush-waxed 1000D water-resistant nylon, it’s as robust as many heavy duty tactical and outdoor bags while looking the part of a more traditional, heritage type canvas bag you can take anywhere.

For the items you need immediate access to while you’re on the move, there’s the external Mystery Ranch hallmark three-way zip pocket, which is further secured with a magnetic Fidlock buckle. You can spend the time and calmly unbuckle and unzip the compartment, or you can rip it open with the buckle when you’re in a hurry to show your travel documents or train tickets. And on that flap, you’ll find a removable hook-and-loop logo patch for further customization. The main compartment features a YKK-zippered clamshell opening and two see-through packing areas for easy identification of clothes and small toiletry items. There’s a dedicated boot pocket (That’s right: boots. Not just sandals or a pair of gym sneakers) to give you a safe and ventilated space to put a spare pair of shoes. And to keep your tech safe, there’s a fleece-lined tablet slot for smaller devices, and a dedicated padded laptop sleeve that’ll fit up to a 17" laptop safely and securely.

With its depth of competent carry options, tons of available organized space for all of your gear, and virtually bombproof construction, the Mystery Ranch x Huckberry Mission Hybrid is made to be your next EDC travel bag. With its years of design and rich feature set, you can really tell it’s made with the one-bag community in mind. You can pick up the new Mission Hybrid exclusively from Huckberry at a discounted price for a limited time at the link below.
