How bout a Bighorn? The Longbow combined with a load sling can work as a light daypack and combined with a load sling could handle a full quarter of an elk or an entire deer boned out. I just picked up a Longbow for one of my two daughters. It is going to be the pack she carries for summer backpacking trips, enough room for her clothes, sleeping bag and maybe a couple other things her fat Dad can dump on her. Casey

Met Dana today at the Alaska Sportsman's Show. I was looking for the MR booth, but never expected the man himself to be there.

Got some great tips on getting my Crew Cab to fit right, and he was glad to know that I love my Astralplane. Obviously a great guy to talk gear with!

Saw him at the show, but he was busy, and I wasn't buying anything, so I didn't introduce myself.

I will say, pretty cool to come up to the show and demo the packs, and I was also very surprised to see Dana. I think it was a good move, even if just to let people see and goof with them. Hard to spend that kind of money on a pack you've never had in your hands.

I also am kinda sweet on the longbow after playing with it for a while.

Does Dana reply to the questions by PM or is it something we said? :-)

Apparently been on the site twice- a typical hit&run guy. Guess he isn't the chatty type like most of the "celebrity" posters we get.

I have two of his externals- used them a lot. I think they are the best external frame packs ever mass produced.

Don't care for the Mystery Ranch stuff.

Im on my 3rd Dana pack.... not that I have worn out either of the 1st two. I bought my 1st one in the early 80's at the trailhead in Missoula. It is just a small old day pack but I used it to carry everything for years. My daughter used to use it on hikes as her light kids pack. I also have a Dana/K2 longbed that I have taken many trips into the Bob and Pintlers with and it will carry more than I want to. I just got a Crew Cab.. no experience with it yet but I hope I like it as much as the first two.

I saw you were testing new lighter weight hunting packs. Any sneak peaks coming this way?

Anyone know where the thread is on suggestions for MR. I remember reading a thread a while back where Mark asked for suggestions. I cant seem to find it. I thought it was here but maybe it was on Bowsite.

Dana and Mark,
Any chance we can get some full dyneema packs?

I borrowed my friends NICE FRAME and CREW CAB for my mountain goat hunt this year and am sold, now all I've got to do is stick away a little cash here and there so the Misses doesn't know I'm buying another piece of gear. My shoulders say thanks and we'll be talking Mark.

Just checking out potential X-mas presents for myself and saw, or rather didn't see the Dragonslayer on Mystery Ranch's site.

Once again it seems like I got burned by the old motto, "He who hesitates is lost."

Edit: X-posted as its own topic.

I have become a devote fan of MR products.

Quality built, made in America by people that really care and provide exceptional customer service.

Keep up the great work.

BTW, love your shop in Bozeman.

Bottom line: if there is a guru in the world of backpacking, Dana Gleason is it. I am extremely proud to have him aboard, and I hope you welcome him in the manner he deserves.

Thanks for the info. I have looked at the MR packs, but I need the breathability of an external frame. I sweat too much from the back. Those MR packs sure do look nice though. If only DANA would start building 1 or 2 external frames I think I would be set.

I keep checking MR's site for the re-designed Big Horn, thought it was supposed to be out in June. Just checked this a.m. and now the Dragon Slayer is gone (again). Can someone update what is going on with these models?

I will have my new Dragon Slayer today. They are taking orders for them, but did pull it from the site for a bit as they where not able to keep up. The new big horn should be out in a month or so and I think they are taking names for the first handful now.

Probably the best post yet. It never ceases to amaze me how many folks I hear complaining about how there aren't any jobs in America, and how bad the economy is, and then I look at their foreign car and their foreign clothes and just about everything else they own is foreign.

Great to have MR right there in Bozeman where another great shop is located, namely Schnees.
