With the same unique 270° zipper access as the Beartooth, the new SAWTOOTH 45’s low-profile silhouette and ingenious organization hit the mark for backcountry hunters. Built on Mystery Ranch's Guide Light MT Frame™ utilizing burly yet lightweight fabrications, it incorporates the patented OVERLOAD™ feature with a newly designed, quick-attach frame capture for easier access to the shelf for packing out your harvest. It’s roomy enough for a fast and light overnighter as well as being perfectly suited for dawn ‘til dusk hunts where coming out by headlamp is the norm.

Sawtooth worked great.

Used as day pack for 9 day hunt. First pack I’ve used that didn’t have my shoulders or hips hurting all week. A little overkill for day pack but not a big deal.

Then used to pack out both hind quarters (two trips) with no issues. Strapped down tight and rode good.

Wouldn’t mind a few more small pouches for organizing gear. Did put a small hole in fabric from setting heavy pack on hard surface and inner zipper poked through.

If you had to make a quick shot the shoulder strap is a bit bulky.

But overall, performed as advertised and very comfortable. Very pleased.

The best!

Awesome pack. Very very comfortable waist belt. Load shelf is a breeze.

Perfect for Saddle Hunting Whitetail

I got this pack for saddle hunting whitetail on the East Coast. I don’t like gear hanging off the outside of my pack, and all my gear for a day fits inside with extra room for snacks - my climbing methods included. I still need to adjust it some more for a perfect fit, but it is pretty comfortable. I took my first deer, a 6 pointer, last weekend and packed him out on the overload shelf in one trip (a little less than a mile from the truck). Everything worked as advertised, and I was sore for a week after.

Bummer I bought it just before the current sale, but I’m glad I had it for that hunt!
