Finding a summit pack that packs down small but doesn’t skimp on durability or design is a bit of a challenge. To save on space, plenty of designers skip the components you want and need in your daypack. Mystery Ranch is not about that easy way out approach, and The In & Out Packable Backpack is the proof.
The 19L lightweight summit pack is highly packable and durable and compresses into its mesh front pocket to the size of a water bottle when not in use. Built with 100D Cordura mini-rip, it’s a full feature option with high abrasion and tear resistance. Contoured shoulder straps and an adjustable sternum strap work in tandem with the highly breathable fixed yoke and side compression straps to comfortably distribute the pack’s weight while staying firmly in place.
Beyond the 19L main compartment, two external pockets, one stretch-woven water bottle pocket, and two tool carry loops put your most needed items right within your reach. When you’re packing up for long hauls, the In & Out adds an inconsequential pound to your overall carry weight, making it an easy-add to your total carry with everything you need for shorter excursions. – $79
