MYSTERY RANCH Redesigns the Metcalf Backpack Specifically for Hunters


Bozeman, MT – MYSTERY RANCH, an industry-leading pack company with multiple product lines focused on function, comfort, quality and durability, introduces the king of hunting packs—the Metcalf.

As a versatile hunting backpack for multi-day quests into the wilds, the Metcalf features both a large main packsack and a detachable, smaller day lid for quick stalks.

PR Metcalf ImageThe Metcalf is an all-around workhorse in versatility—sporting enough volume for more than a week in the field but compressible enough for an afternoon stalk. Built onto our new Guide Light Frame™, the Metcalf has ample heavy-weight capacity, and the Overload Shelf™ keeps bag contents clean when packing out a carcass. With a detachable lid for day use, side detail pocket and full-length size zip access, this pack is a favorite among hunters looking for versatility and all-around utility … regardless of the game or duration of the hunt.

Highlighted Features:

  • Top-load design with side-zip access to necessities at a moment’s notice. Side zip is large enough for full-sized spotting scopes
  • Detachable lid transforms to a shoulder pack with two pockets for a kill kit, rain layers, water and food for dropping the big pack and stalking with precision
  • External detail pocket on left side is sized to fit headlamp, SPOT, batteries, flagging tape, and neck gaiter
  • Single stretch-woven side pocket for tripod feet or bottle
  • Hydro sleeve with toggle hang-loop for any bladder type
  • Face compression for bow/rifle or shed antler carry
  • Overload Shelf™ to securely carry meat or dense additional gear between the Metcalf bag and Guide Light Frame™
