Mystery Ranch has made a name for itself in the military, first responder, outdoor, and everyday carry community for its quality packs and carry goods. They’re built for rough use and boast a unique, utility-driven design that makes them a joy to use wherever your missions take you. And when they collaborate with gear-savvy adventure seekers at Huckberry, their already EDC-worthy bags get even better. It started with their Mission Hybrid waxed wood textile one-bag travel champion. Now the partnership continues with the new Mystery Ranch x Huckberry 2-Day Assault 27L backpack, available in a unique colorway with a high-visibility interior that enables one-look easy identification of the gear you’re trying to retrieve from within. And this Veterans Day, service members and their families can also save 20% off sitewide at Huckberry.

Huckberry and Mystery Ranch’s exclusive “Hummus” colorway of the new 2-Day Assault 27L backpack fittingly sports a light, desert tan tone. The design language draws your eyes to the one thing that sets these bags apart from other tactical packs: the hallmark 3-way zipper that allows for rip-open convenience and full access to the interior of the bag for easy loading and unloading when fully splayed out. Mystery Ranch achieve this quick access by using heavy-duty YKK zippers that can handle rough use without failing. On this bag, the zippers are also specifically designed to maximize water resistance too. That means everything you put inside this 27 liter bag can stand up to some rain, especially when you factor in the use of 500D Cordura fabric for the shell. That fabric is a happy medium giving you the best of abrasion and water resistance without weighing you down too much and it keeps this bag firmly within the daypack category at just three pounds total unloaded.

Internal and external organizations are legion with this bag. Obviously with PALS webbing on the exterior of the bag, the 2-Day Assault has an inherently more visible tactical aesthetic (especially compared to other Mystery Ranch bags, like the Rip Ruck and the Urban Assault) but you gain a lot in modularity with MOLLE gear when you need it for outdoors and bugout applications. Even if you don’t attach extra gear, the webbing actually blends in well (especially in the Hummus colorway) so it’s still a fairly discreet backpack for civilian use. There are two compartments up top for storing frequently accessed items, and two external water bottle holders to help you stay hydrated on the go.

As you open the bag you’ll notice a suspended dedicated laptop and tablet sleeve for your tech carry, with hidden zippered rear access to the laptop pocket that lets you retrieve your device without having to open everything up. The high visibility orange interior is unique to this offering of the bag as well, and it makes locating small items easy to do at a glance. That laptop compartment also doubles as a hydration bladder holder for extended outdoors excursions too. The addition of a removable internal frame sheet means this bag holds its shape on your back for stable and comfortable carry, and the adjustable harness, sternum strap, and waist belt help you out further when you pack this bag to the brim.

Whether your missions take you out to the office, around town, or to the great outdoors, the Mystery Ranch x Huckberry 2-Day Assault is a compelling option if you’re looking for a new everyday carry backpack.
