Here at Barney’s the search for innovation in new products and outdoor equipment never rests. In this case, although Mystery Ranch has dominated the Hunting Pack world for quite some time, we are happy to introduce them to our store this coming spring. For those that are not familiar with the Brand, it started in the Mountaineering world with a company called Dana Design’s. After selling that company to Marmot, Dana Gleason started Mystery Ranch which is based out of Bozeman Montana. Not only is Mystery Ranch new to Barney’s, but they have also revamped their entire pack collection to help introduce lighter, and more diverse pack options while maintaining the same quality and longevity that the U.S. Military, serious Mountain Hunters, and Backpackers have trusted for the past two decades. Here at Barney’s, we are BIG believers in “give credit where credit is deserved”. Unfortunately, this industry is full of companies that essentially get their start, where others left off. Although there are other pack companies making headlines lately, let’s not overlook where that innovation came from. The Cabinet, formally known as the “Crew Cab” is a design that has a lot to offer. Pairing well with the concept of our custom Frontier Gear of Alaska Freighter Frame, the Cabinet is a great day pack, while also incorporating the expandable Overload Shelf for hauling out that first load to base camp. For those Moose and Caribou hunters who generally establish a base camp, and do not always need the high capacity of our Custom Packs, the Cabinet is a 2,600 cubic inch pack that is just big enough for your day to day essentials. We realize your staying within a reasonable distance of camp, and will be making a trip back to grab your custom Freight Frame to pack your animal out, but throughout the day this pack has all the features you’ll need. Whether your overlooking a giant swamp for moose, making a quick dash to cut off that heard of Bull Caribou you’ve been tracking, or walking the edges of the Muskeg in search of Sitka Blacktail, you’ll need a small capacity pack that keeps you mobile but safe as well.
