Mystery Ranch may be better known for the heavy-duty packs worn by members of the military and backcountry firefighters, but the lightweight In and Out, which is currently 18 percent off at Huckberry, meets our expectations of the company, if for different reasons.
The In and Out is collapsible, folding into itself to become the size of a small pillow (and you might use it as such on a long flight or bus ride). But, unlike many other minimalist travel backpacks, it remains fully-featured with 100-denier Cordura fabric, an aerospace mesh back panel and pockets to accommodate everything from a water bottle to an ice axe. For these reasons, it’s our pick for the best minimalist daypack for hiking, but it’ll serve travelers who prefer city sidewalks to trails just as well.
Other great Mystery Ranch bags are also on sale at Huckberry, including the 21-liter Urban Assault everyday backpack and the travel-oriented Mission Duffel, both for 39 percent off.
