If you've been around Mystery Ranch packs much, you may remember the Spartan. It was made in the US maybe 5 years ago for a year or two and then discontinued. Sometime after that, MR moved the packs production to the Philippines and sold the pack in Asia for some time before discontinuing it again. I was fortunate enough to make an acquaintance that had purchased this pack in Tokyo in that window and was willing to sell it and ship it to me form Singapore. This is the smallest pack I am aware of that features the Futura Harness, coming in at just 16 liters or 1000 cu-in. It uses a unique dual zipper and velcro main closure that allows the pack to expand upward some, external and internal PALS webbing, a top pass through zipper and dual internal sleeves. An operator can even pull the Futura harness and dock the pack to a plate carrier. As you might expect, this little pack is quite interesting and a dream to carry!
Carry on all,
