MYSTERY RANCH, a pack company built on a heritage of function, comfort, quality and durability, today proudly accepts the prestigious Backpacker Editor’s Choice for its Sphinx and Mystic packs. Part of the all-new Spring 2016 Mountain Collection, the men’s Sphinx and the women’s Mystic will ship to Specialty Outdoor retailers across the US and Canada starting this month.

“Backpacker Magazine has been a tremendous supporter of the outdoor community since 1973, making this award even more meaningful, “says MYSTERY RANCH co-founder and owner Dana Gleason. “I’d personally like to thank the editors, testers and all who have contributed to this iconic publication throughout the years.”

Dana Gleason III, the son of the company’s co-founder, designed the Sphinx and Mystic. The new packs incorporate the uncompromising durability and comfortable carry for which MYSTERY RANCH packs have always ranked priority #1. There are obvious nods to our heritage including the long center zip and the vertical torpedo pockets,” says the senior Gleason.

“This award means so much to MYSTERY RANCH moving forward,” Gleason adds. “It’s a great privilege and honor for me, as a part of the older generation, to pass the baton to the next and to know that all the passion and pack-building knowledge will carry on into packs yet to be built.”

 “Robust is the first word that comes to mind: Not only is this pack practically immune to wear and tear, it hauls 60+ pound loads effortlessly, thanks to the burly frame system and plush hipbelt,” says Kristin Hostetter, Backpacker Gear Editor.

 The Mystic and the Sphinx, built sleek and light for two or three-day backpacking and thru-hiking, utilize MYSTERY RANCH’s Adventure Frame. The top-loading design incorporates Gleason’s iconic long back pockets, a removable lid and a center zipper that fillets open for full access to gear.
