BreakdownWhen the first Pop Up came out in 2018 it changed the game for day hunters by enabling them to carry a small, convenient, and lightweight bag that could easily convert into a heavy-duty load-hauling frame pack once they got an animal down. Mystery Ranch listened to consumer feedback about a need for more storage and developed the Pop Up 38 which is the largest Pop Up available. The Pop Up 38 frame "pops up" via telescopic stays that utilize trekking pole technology for greater strength and ease of use. This adjustable frame allows you to adjust it to a raised position which allows you to haul heavier loads more efficiently. It features a top-loading shroud and a full-length side zipper for access to the main compartment along with two zippered accessory compartments on the lid. The side water bottle pockets and compression straps can be used to securely carry tripods and trekking poles.

I’ve used the backpack on a couple of scouting trips and I’m happy so far. I like the load lifter system & the quality looks like it will last for a decade or more. I use my metcalf for elk and the pop up-38 for mule deer. Sleek design and the waist belt is SUPER comfortable... I’m stoked on this pack!
I really how small the pack compresses down but still has the ability to load it up if need be. The outside stuff pocket works great for 15x binos or a puffy.
I have had many mystery ranch packs, I still use my metcalf most often but this is a great pack for shorter hunts and a huge upgrade from the original pop up.
Pack functioned perfectly. I need to learn to adjust properly when using load bearing shelf but definitely easier than dragging the 60lb Sika deer out of the woods. Great pack!
Take your time setting it up to fit your torso.
