New jersey section it is a nice crisp 22. Degrees out this morning so i know what. You're thinking bob what in the world you're doing only wearing a long-sleeved. T-shirt you're gonna catch cold well you know if you watch my videos you. Know me i like to keep things nice and light nice and simple i run really warm. As it is and I'd rather not sweat with. It being so cold out here i know am i just out for a day hike but even. Stopping and standing still for a few minutes if i start to sweat i can just. Feel the cold really kick in so I'm just. Keeping it nice and light give myself a little bit warmer this is the under armor cold gear so it does still keep me fairly warm but most importantly it's. Breathable keeps me dry i still have leggings on underneath my hiking pants gloves on hat on all that stuff all that. Good stuff I'm good to go but enough. Chitchat so i was looking at this view behind me I'm out here for another reason and that. Is to talk about my brand-new day pack that's right i got a brand-new day pack its something that is really awesome super comfortable so and i figured what. Better way to review it and bring it out on an actual day hike get the feel for it and talk about what i think about the. Backpack thus far so let me get some miles in let me continue on the way get warmed up a little bit here who's gonna be a beautiful day i got some beautiful views for you guys stay tuned we got some good stuff to talk about drill barnacle. How you do everybody so it's been a. Beautiful day hiking this far coming towards the end or i have to turn back around and head on back so i figured i. Would stop talk to you about the brand-new day pack that i just recently purchased so i present to you guys the. Mystery ranch screen 35 litres let's go. Ahead and do a quick turn around so i am. So excited to finally own a piece of mystery ranch gear they are a really popular backpacking company they make lots of really cool gear as well I'm an. Rei just started carrying them so of course i had to pick it up now of course i know should probably stay involved what are you doing spending there's money you're trying to get ready for through like well you know what my current day pack the rei traverse not that there was really anything wrong with it was a fairly comfortable backpack but i always had problems with the hip belt rubbing my hips raw no matter how many times I've used it no matter how many layers i put on it would always rub my hips raw i need to get. Something a little bit different so i wasn't killing myself you know heading on into my through bike so i want to pick this bad boy up let me start off by saying it is an immensely comfortable. Backpack i tried it on with like 15 pounds of weight and it felt like nothing so a couple things I'm going to. Cover with this backpack here today number one I'll cover some of the specs of the backpack some of the dimensions so on and so forth secondly from there we'll talk about some of the main features of the backpack itself and then I'll talk about the main features that i really like about the backpack why i wanted to get it and especially moving forward why i wanted to get a backpack like this so it is pretty chilly out. Here let me take this guy off let me put my puffy on, and then we'll go ahead and get on into the backpack itself so okay guys just some quick specs about the backpack itself again this is the mystery ranch skree backpack so to start off with this. Is a 35 litre backpack i know it's a. Little bit on the larger side of day packs but i wanted to go with the larger side day pack for a particular reason one i can carry some extra weight some. Other little odds and ends and as well moving for with this backpack i wanted to get a little bit more versatility out of it this is the medium/large version you do. Have some torso adjustment this is gonna be about 21 to 22 inches long on the. Frame just the initial frame itself not. When you extend the torso as long so you. Can get away with this as a carry-on size luggage if you really need to you're looking at about 9 to 10 inches. Deep really nothing too bad there and. You're looking at about 13 to 14 inches wide there so pretty nice dimensions. Again 35 later you can use this as a carry-on piece of luggage if you really had to the overall weight of the backpack if i remember correctly is right around two and a half pounds don't quote me on that i will leave that answer in the description down below so. Right around to two and a half pounds so not too bad it is a very supportive backpack and as well what i like about it is waterproof, but we'll go ahead and talk about that in a little bit and last but not least this does retail for. One 7995 down at your local rei so a. Little bit more on the expensive side but as i get into some of the details and some of the features about the backpack you'll understand why it's a little bit more expensive than some other options okay so let's go into some. Of the features that you're gonna get with the backpack let me start on this side first and foremost so down the down on the bottom you do have two hip belts. Pockets down here i know a backpackers favorite just having access to those snacks some ready available items kind. Of thing like that really nice what i really love about this backpack is they have really heavy cushions. Shoulder straps it's almost as if they took the shoulder straps off they're bigger backpacks and put it on this one itself so it makes it really supportive standard sternum strap tether. You have down here but what i really like that they did was that they have this kind of elastic piece here this. Kind of elastic clipping system so if you do have a water bladder you can lash down the hose or if you need to keep a knife whatever the case maybe it has. This a little elastic I've been utilizing it to hold my go pro. Right there really cool feature right off the bat for me especially and of. Course it comes with some of your standard adjustment load lifters up top fully of all really nice coming on to. The side here you do have your mesh water bottle pockets sitting there pretty nice size i think i can fit two of these smaller size water bottles in there you can easily fit a full liter nalgene without a problem now they are. Pretty they are pretty vertical so what. I found out is the best way to get your bottle in our number one getting them out is push up from the bottom and it quickly pops out there for you to get it. In i notice that if i grab the whole water bottle and then push it in it's a. Little bit easier to get my water bottle in and out that way while it's still on my body you do have these on both sides. Of the backpack coming on up to the top. Here you do have number one a quick easy access pocket there I'm just keeping some snacks in there right now and then right in front of it you do have a deeper access quick grab pocket I'm. Keeping just my car keys my wallet just. Some other odds and ends so on and so forth right now and of course along the top you do have. Some different loops some different looping systems to where if you need to lash down equipment now flipping it on. Over to the front here this is really where it makes its money so to start off. With blatantly out in the obvious is this kind of y shaped zipper this is a. Fully taped sipper so a waterproof zipper what's really cool is opening. This thing up the way it kind of splays out really nice wide lid right off the. Top and as you can see it kind of has this extra collar so as it's zipped over. With those two zippers coming together you know that there's not going to be any water kind of leaking in through. That small little gap so really nice on their part there before i zip down the. Front across the front you do have all these different daisy chains and different loops and everything that you have there another great way for lashing down equipment whether it be axes climbing equipment so on and so forth. Really nice and convenient they already provide you with that you do of course have not only dual-purpose lashing clips as well as compression. Clips across the front this helps keep everything together you can strap down extra equipment if you have to and then. Of course the big thing here again a tape zipper fully waterproof this is. Opens on up as you can see i have just some puffy jackets just a fleece hoodie. I my rain jacket sitting in there right now but it's cool how everything opens up in one shot inside is a fully coated inside so going. Along with the tape zipper you do have. That waterproof coating to make sure everything inside stays nice and dry now. Inside there i know it's behind a bunch of stuff right now but you do have a small hydration sleeve it's not overly. Large to be honest with you can. Probably fit like maybe a 1/2 liter 1. Liter one and a half liter bladder if you had to but it's intended to fit more. Of like a small actual tactical water bladder not one of those camel bags for. Casual purpose so really nice features. Really nice and versatile as well multi-purpose and love how it's waterproof all by itself making this a. Really durable backpack any long-lasting backpack up on top of that so that price. Tag starts to look a little bit better doesn't it so ok guys why did i get this. Backpack i know I'm getting ready for my. Thru-hike why would i spend the money on a brand-new day pack well for starters like i said before my other one was raw. I needed something a little bit more comfortable so that it wasn't tearing my. Hips apart and creating problems for my thru-hike that's number one number two. As well i wanted something that when i get off the trail was help was going to. Help me go into my next phase of my youtube channel now i know i do a lot of. The back packing a lot of camping and a lot of that other awesome stuff as well and i love doing it but i would like to. Get into more of the climbing aspect of things so especially a waterproof backpack tons of the lashing points something that's really supportive really ideal for that climber you know. Being able to carry your ropes your quick links some of your different harnesses everything lashed out on the outside something super convenient and. As well an extension to the backpacking. I wanted to get into some of the more bush craft side of things as well so. Again fully waterproof backpack number one that's awesome with what i want to do with all the different last points being able to carry an axe being. Able to carry heavier knives wool blankets on the outside and some basic equipment on the inside really good for that and of course being having. A super supportive suspension system and being able to carry some of. Those heavier bush craft items something really ideal for me so i know it's a little bit oversized for a day pack at 35 liters but it's something that i plan. On utilizing a lot moving forward and in. A lot of different ways and this gives me the versatility necessary to do that so for anyone looking for a new day pack something to take them traveling something to look for a waterproof option great for climbing great for. Mountaineering great for bush craft as well definitely take a look at the mystery ranch scree a really good. Backpack this is the first day I've had it out and so far i am so impressed with. This i can easily take this for a night or two if i really had to but i have it. Through mike to get ready for first and foremost we'll talk about that down the road so thank you guys so much following. Along on another great video here whew. Starting to cool down a little bit i guess it's time, but we snapped up got up. On the way so thank you guys so much for.
