3 DAY ASSAULT - BVS
AVAILABLE IN MULTICAM & COYOTE
The 3 DAY ASSAULT PACK has room for sustainment gear, ammo, IFAKs and tactical radios. For versatility and mobility, there’s nothing better. The BVS has taken the classic design of the 3 Day Assasult and streamlined the exterior by removing and updating features, making it the best pack for versatility and mobility. It has three rows of external MOLLE webbing, giving you options to expand, and side compression straps minimize bulk. WATCH VIDEO
The JUMP KOMODO is built for extended time in the field and is constructed so it carries weight just like its non jump counterparts, with only a 4 oz weight penalty. PALS webbing on exterior accommodates MOLLE accessories and inside, it has a PALS webbing panel for radio mounts plus detail pockets and hydration sleeves. The waist belt stows away when not in use. MYSTERY RANCH has always focused on making packs that carry well first and foremost, then balance between lightweight and durability relative to the end users’ needs.
HOTSHOT - INTL
Over a long season on a Hotshot crew, engine, or helicopter, your fire pack becomes the one thing you can truly call your own. That’s why we redesigned our flagship HOT 3 and introduced the HOTSHOT. Adding key tailoring touches, features that improve both comfort and function, and improved framing— because every cubic inch of a fire pack is gold to the firefighter wearing it.
HOTSHOT TL - INTL
The simplified brother of the HOTSHOT, our HOTSHOT TL (Top Load) is the next generation of the trusted HOT TOP—the gas station on your back, your pillow for that 0400 dirtnap, the companion that carries everything you need to get you to the next shift safe, strong, and healthy. It’s your home away from home, and it’s built to last.

Built with input from BC Wildfire Service, the SHIFT SC was developed for the International Fire, SAR (Search and Rescue), and USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) markets that need 72-hour solutions (and where a fire shelter is not required). This pack includes a modified Shift Frame base system where the overload storage and pocket double as a load shelf. When the bag is detached from the frame, the removable Stick-it can secure a chainsaw, gas tanks, or other awkward items on to the overload shelf. The horseshoe zipper design allows for easy, full access to the main compartment, and the zippered lid pocket offers easy access to small items and personal gear.
The features of this pack are either compressible, stowable, or removable – the yoke has quick-release buckles and integrated storage compartments for the shoulder straps/harnessing and pass-throughs for compression straps, along with other compatible features making it entirely jump compatible. There is double-layered fabric and/or web reinforcements in high wear areas, making it one of the most durable line gear packs. The BIG ERNIE has improved staple features like our new zippered wing pockets with interior drawcords to secure contents, an integrated ambidextrous access ﬁre shelter storage below the main compartment, and daisy chains on the exterior of wing pockets for lashing on accessories.
