SHOT Show 17 – Mystery Ranch SPEAR Packs

Last year, Mystery Ranch won the contract for three of USSOCOM’s SPEAR family of packs. Because there is so much going on with these packs, we are just going to show them to you.

SPEAR Assault

SPEAR Patrol


Additionally, all three packs come with a new common version of the NICE frame.

Once again, look for full details on these packs soon.

    Zipper pulls come in tan too…

    Just sayin…

      But the tan ones are painted and they chip and you are left with shiny slider shining all over the place. The black are enameled and much more durable. just sayin.

    53L for the assault pack ??? That is massive. I was expecting around 25-40L range with ability to attach pouches/panels.

      I agree, but in all fairness it does appear to cinch down both horizontally and vertically.

    So I’m assuming USSOCOM personnel will be issued one pack lid, one frame, and three different bags?

    Looks like a good setup, interesting to see their standard of an “assault” pack is so large. I hope they sell this new frame separately so we can retrofit older NICE packs with it.

    Actually, the Ranch uses the black zipper pulls because they are metal plated, which gives a much tougher surface than the enameled sliders. This lasts about 6 times longer than the painted sliders. Ever have a zipper split open behind the slider? Thats what happens as the slider wears out. Oh, and many black sliders are painted….you have to specifically get metal plated sliders. On their sport and fire packs, the Ranch uses shiny metal plated sliders for ease of finding the slider in low light situations. The zipper cords on the military packs are a slightly contrasting color for the same reason. Obsessive? Nah, we’re just crazy enough to do it right…..

    I stopped by the booth today and checked in with the guys from MR. I never had the chance to try on any of their packs before buying them and I was super impressed with the professionalism and willingness to show me the ropes.

    I went in thinking I wanted one thing, and after a few Elk hunting stories exchanged I was convinced of the Metcalf. I have a Dragon Slayer pack and love it, but it’s time for me to upgrade my day pack to something that can quickly and easily become my meat hauler.

    I will be out 500 clams very soon.

    Thanks guys.

      I’ve owed a 6500 for awhile and bought the crew cab specifically for hunting. Hauls kit, and rifle awesomely on the hike in and meat great on the way out.
