Size

Mystery Ranch Coulee 25

(1/2)

The hip belts on a lot of packs in this size range are too high to be used effectively for people with longer torsos and Mystery Ranch has solved this issue with the adjustable yoke. Works great on hikes and through airports/airplanes as a carry on. It will hold quite a bit of gear and I think the 25 liter is a great all around size. I do wish it had a little more organization areas but definitely isn’t a deal breaker

Zipper

Mystery Ranch Coulee 25

(1/2)

Click here for my e-guides to classic backpacking trips. Click here to learn how I can help you plan your next trip. The Mystery Ranch Coulee 25 daypack. The Coulee’s most unique feature is its three-zipper system accessing the main compartment: Instead of a traditional, separate lid, the Coulee has a cover that flips open more like a clamshell-style opening

Compartment

Mystery Ranch Coulee 25

(1/1)

The Mystery Ranch Coulee 25 daypack. The Coulee’s most unique feature is its three-zipper system accessing the main compartment: Instead of a traditional, separate lid, the Coulee has a cover that flips open more like a clamshell-style opening. Two zippers open each side of the top of the main compartment and meet at the lid’s front side, overlapping a vertical front zipper that completely fillets the main compartment open. The system provides both rapid and easy access to everything inside and eliminates the extra steps inherent to a lid that closes with two buckles and a cord cinch

Strap

Mystery Ranch Coulee 25

(1/1)

The shoulder straps and hip belt are way overbuilt for a 25L pack. Smaller Mystery Ranch packs at REI have smaller shoulder straps which would be preferable on this pack (this is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5). Other reviewers have noticed this as well. The wide shoulder straps are fine from a comfort standpoint but just don't feel right on the pack
