**Please note the Guide Light MT Frame has different sizing than previous Mystery Ranch packs. Many people who used to be a large will now fit a medium pack. Please check the sizing tab to ensure you order the correct size.
Highlights- Versatile pack that can be used for multi-day backpack hunts or day hunts- Full-length side zip offers quick and easy access to your gear- Overload shelf located between the bag and frame allows you to haul meat out easily
BreakdownThe new 2020 version of the Metcalf takes the previous best selling Mystery Ranch pack and adds some very functional features making the bag better than it ever was before. First and foremost the Metcalf is now on the Guide Light MT Frame which offers an improved waist belt and a slightly lighter frame. The Guide Light MT Frame also makes the Overload shelf easier to access. The bag itself has also undergone a couple of minor changes to increase functionality. One of these changes is that the full-length side zipper now runs outside of the side pocket making it easier to access gear at the very bottom of your pack. The other change is that now the Metcalf has two open-topped side pockets rather than just one. This is a great improvement because it allows you to carry your rifle or tripod on either side of your pack. The 2020 Metcalf is still the all-around workhorse that its predecessor was and is guaranteed to be a favorite among hunters looking for versatility and all-around utility.
*If you are in-between sizes we recommend that you size down. This will ensure that you have the ability to tighten the waist belt under a heavy load and or after having spent multiple days in the backcountry and having lost a few pounds.

The Metcalf has exceeded my expectations. I’ve loaded it with 50 lbs of gear as I train for the Oct CO elk hunt and I couldn’t be happier with the balance and adjustability. The material and build quality is top notch. I went with the Metcalf as its a bit less than the other top brand packs. I love too that it’s a good support to shoot the rifle with. Let’s hope I get to pack an elk this year!
User friendly, comfortable and durable. Great piece of gear! Very pleased with the purchase
Looks and feels and works like a very high quality pack. I am looking forward to taking it out in the field. goHUNT does a great job!
I was a little up in the air about sizing as I had just lost close to 50 lbs. I opted for the medium size in the Metcalf. It fits perfect! I had a 20 year old Kelty that I upgraded from, wow has technology changed. I will be leaving in a few weeks for a mountain goat hunt in Alaska, I'll provide a follow-up review once I get back from that trip. Overall, very pleased so far, very well built and tons of space.
