Mystery Ranch is introducing three sizes of its new BLACKJACK pack series, 50, 80 and 100l, covering the gamut of larger military load carriage needs. The BLACKJACK packs are the commercially available versions of the standard-issue USSOCOM SPEAR packs.
All BLACKJACK series packs use MR’s new lightweight frame that features a Dyneema-Cordura laminate over full-carbon frame stays, stowable waist belt and lighter, smaller bolsters for stability over armour. The packs themselves all feature new IR-compliant, water-repellent YKK zippers and 500D Cordura fabric treated with a Teflon face coating and a tough polyurethane back coating.
All three packs are top-loaders with removable lids, side access zippers and a port for radio or hydration access. The BLACKJACK 50 has two large front pockets, while the 80 has four total pockets, one large and three smaller. The BLACKJACK 100 is the same as the 80, but adds a sleep system compartment on the bottom.
