Most commuter backpacks are built just tough enough to stand up to your average daily grind. But the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Pack takes that tolerance for wear and tear a huge leap further. They've imparted the same focus on ergonomics and durability that go into their line of American-made tactical packs used by the military and police alike into a street-ready daypack for civilian EDC.

The build and design of the Urban Assault Pack go hand in hand, making it a tough bag that will protect your essentials while giving you easy access to them. It takes its design cues from military assault packs and minimally designed commuter backpacks, resulting in a sleek and practical bag that won’t look out of place in the office or on a hike.

Thanks to the convenient 3-ZIP design you can either lie the bag flat or reach in from the top to retrieve your gear, depending on what you’re carrying. In the main compartment you’ll get a 15” laptop sleeve as well as three zippered pockets for smaller accessories like charging cables or pens, while the top of the bag has a single zippered stuff pocket with a secure clip for your keys. Last but not least, its use of tough yet supple 500D Cordura nylon throughout offers some added protection when the weather turns.

As far as commuter bags go the Urban Assault pack checks all the boxes. It’s lightweight, durable, and combines military functionality with modern design. If you want a better way to carry your gear click the link below to snatch one of these.

Is there some sort of design element which prevents the bottom zip being opened whilst on your back by somebody behind you?
