The customers spoke and Mystery Ranch listened. The very popular Pintler pack is now available as a bag only option. If you are running any Mystery Ranch pack on their Guide Light Frame - you can now cost effectively add this killer day pack to your gear stable in a cost effective fashion.
The Pintler has the right Kung-Fu to haul big loads, due to its overload shelf and Guide Light Frame™ but has the compact footprint that makes it a day hunter and short-term backpack hunter's perfect, or damn-near perfect solution. With just the right amount of organization and it's handy Y-Zip opening it is a clean well-organized pack for serious optics-centric hunters, open the pack and everything you need is right where you need it.
With 41Liter (2502 c.i.) capacity, it really nails the volume needs we hold in the Southwest for optics-heavy day trips, and shifts gears neatly into a 2-3 day lightweight backpack setup.
Run it with a reasonably lightweight backcountry set up, like a floorless shelter, Pocket Rocket 2 stove and Sea to Summit collapsible cookware, Sea to Summit LT1 and Inflatable pad and you have an incredibly compact setup ready to go explore new unseen country, and be able to park on a great spot when you uncover it.
