Mystery Ranch Blackjack Series

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018


Mystery Ranch is introducing their new Blackjack series of packs. With 3 sizes, 50, 80 and 100 liters, these packs cover the gamut of larger military load carriage needs. The Blackjack packs are the commercially available versions of the standard-issue USSOCOM SPEAR packs.

All Blackjack series packs use MR’s new lightweight frame that features a Dyneema-Cordura laminate over full-carbon frame stays, stowable waist belt and lighter, smaller bolsters for stability over armor. The packs themselves all feature new IR-compliant, water-repellent YKK zippers and 500D Cordura fabric treated with a Teflon face coating and a tough polyurethane back coating. All 3 packs are top-loaders with removable lids, side access zippers and a port for radio or hydration access. The Blackjack 50 has two large front pockets, while the 80 has four total pockets, 1 large and 3 smaller. The Blackjack 100 is the same as the 80, but adds a sleep system compartment on the bottom.

Available now, you can check them out in person at SHOT show, booth #7409.

MATBOCK Monday || 1 – Day Assault Pack

Monday, January 8th, 2018

This is the new 1 Day Assault Pack from MATBOCK.


Made of the MATBOCK Ghost Lite material, it is extremely lightweight, water resistant with YKK Uretek zippers throughout and offers some great new features. The main pouch is designed to hold a PRC-117G radio with a small admin pouch on the inside as well. On the top of the main pouch are two comms outlets made of medical grade gasket material to make a waterproof seal around even the largest radio antennas and smallest comms cables to prevent water entering the pack during inclement weather. The comms ports can be closed off when not in use. The shoulder yoke system is adjustable vertically to accommodate plates and any other gear possibly mounted on the back. The side pouches are large enough to hold a standard nalgene water bottle with compression straps and bungee closures at the top.

One of the coolest features of the back is the upper pouch. Upon opening, a secondary main pouch is stored that effectively doubles the capacity of the bag with another completely water resistant storage space. This secondary bag folds all the way open and is lined on the inside with loop velcro offering a great storage space for extra med kit, SSE collected on target, or even just an extra puffy layer. The pouch attaches at the bottom of the pack as well to ensure it doesn’t move around when worn.

The pack only weighs 1.9 lbs and is available immediately for $380.00 MSRP.
