Maybe you’ve got your day-to-day gear dialed-in and completely consistent. But for everything else—weekend getaways, short-haul flights, long days on the trail, or even an after-work gym sesh—your carry might change. And for that, having a bag that’s ready for everything goes a long way. Mystery Ranch’s latest pack offers a 27L capacity for about two-days worth of gear: perfect for flexing between an EDC or a mission-specific pack. With a tough yet lighter weight 500D nylon construction and design elements from both tactical and outdoors packs, the 2-Day Assault 27L could be the “one bag” you’ve been looking for.

With a track record of manufacturing solid bags for all sorts of use cases, Mystery Ranch delivers on the several key criteria for an EDC bag: durability, light weight, ease of access, organization, and comfort. It starts with the 2-Day Assault’s choice of materials: 500D Cordura-brand fabric hits a sweet spot of durability and light weight at just 3 pounds. Next, its tri-zip design grants quick access for gear retrieval on the go. Three water-resistant YKK zippers form a “Y” shape on the pack, letting you easily access the sides, center, or entirety of the internal main compartment as needed instead of having to unzip the entire bag each time. Fully unzipping reveals the main compartment’s spacious interior, lined with zippered mesh compartments and drop pockets for organizing gear. Even its suspended, padded laptop compartment can be accessed via a side zipper. Finally, the 2-Day Assault features padded, contoured shoulder straps, a sternum strap, waist belt, and full-length frame for comfortably bearing heavier loads. When you’re packing light, you can cinch down compression straps on the front of the pack and remove the sternum and waist straps for a lower profile.

Much of the 2-Day Assault’s functionality comes from the outside, too. Its top brain compartment features a mesh compartment for stashing frequently used gear. PALS webbing throughout the bag lets you add on MOLLE pouches or clippable gear, serving well for both tactical or outdoors applications. Last but not least, a pair of external bottle pockets keep your water handy at all times. The 2-Day Assault comes in three colors: black, coyote tan, and forest green.
