Have and love this bag. Great day pack or commuter bag. Only change I would like is make the padded sleeve removable (but I would say this for all bags).

Great bags. I use the smaller cousin of this with the optional shoulder straps and it absolutely rocks as a summer hiking bag (although a tad smallish for what I often carry). No heat buildup at all compared to a typical small backpack so many typically use. Tempted to grab this one, but sizing aside the old one continues to do its job so well - not sure I need to spend the $$.

I would buy this but the one I have is still going strong after 30 years of constant use. In all that time I've only had to replace a zipper pull and get stitching on the hip belt fixed about a year ago.

I own the day pack, so id you plan on taking more than 5lbs of stuff in this bag you really should pay the extra 20 for the straps, I love my day pack, but sometimes i wonder if i should have just bought a bigger bag for the same price that has shoulder straps already...aka backpack.

I have this pack already, and would strongly advise adding both the strapettes as others have suggested, and Mountainsmith also has a rain cover for it which I also advise getting as the Cordura is really strong, but not waterproof.

Here is everything I take bushcrafting on a regular basis. Not everything goes into the Lumbar Pack. What doesn’t go into the pack goes in my vest, on my waist, or around my neck. If I carried everything in the pack it would be far too heavy. Food gets carried in a separate bag slung over my shoulder.

Instead of having bottle pouches on the sides, there should be two square bags, one on each side, hugging your waist - this would put all of the weight close to your body. Having to connect pouches to the webbing on the back causes the weight to pull outward, which causes lower back and shoulder pain. Having water bottle pouches on the sides is useless as you can not access a water bottle if it’s on the side (I have to take the bag off, or have a buddy hand me my bottle). The water bottle pouch should be on the front where you can actually access it while hiking. These two improvements would add to the capacity, while at the same time make it more comfortable (less painful). I’m actually going to switch all my gear over to my Mystery Ranch SATL this weekend, because the small amount of gear that I carry is pulling at my lower back and shoulders in the Mountain Smith. The SATL is designed to carry up to 100lbs of gear and weapons, so it will easily handle my bushcraft gear - and food. I still say the Mountain Smith is good for someone more minimalist than myself. It is perfect for someone who just needs to hike with a couple water bottles, some trail food, and a rain coat. But it could also be improved to suit the needs of bushcrafters. —Rx
