Mystery Ranch Women’s Harness Pack

With rural hunters in mind, Mystery Ranch has spent years researching and measuring a variety of body types to develop the latest harness system. This women’s system has shoulder straps that are narrower than those used in men’s bags, and is ergonomically designed to fit around the chest and rest comfortably on a woman’s body. The shoulder straps have more foam than previous years and are wrapped in a non-abrasive but durable space mesh. The adjustable chest strap is designed to reduce chafing, and there’s more range for adjusting the length of the torso. These features combine with the Guide Light MT frame and five-point waistband with the Redirection System to provide consistent weight distribution and eliminate slip. The new women’s belt system will be available on the Mystery Ranch Metcalf and POP-UP 28 backpacks. $500 (Metcalf) and $325 (pop 28) | mysteryranch.com
