When working in insanely difficult conditions, you need insanely well-built gear—and that’s exactly what a MYSTERY RANCH pack brings to the fire line. The strongest materials, the best craftsmanship, the most comfortable carry: our fire packs and accessories help you get the job done.
MYSTERY RANCH builds intelligent equipment that is initial-attack optimized and designed to meet the specific needs of Engine Companies, Helitack Crews, and Overhead. A staple for any crew – and foundation for our modular system – the SHIFT is a stand-alone IA pack with room for essential equipment and a load shelf that supports and stabilizes hose packs yet marries with either the Plus Medic or Plus 900 to give you precisely what you need.
Thoughtful components combine to form the fundamental innovation that makes the Shift System truly unique: its Operational Load Shelf. The first, the Fire-specific yoke features our patented Futura adjustment system to telescopically adjust to any user’s torso length but reduces its footprint width by 2″ to maximize ventilation and body heat dispersion. Second, the
mid and lumbar portion of the pack is built with continuous HDPE and fiberglass stay framing to bridge load distribution evenly from the yoke through to the hips and core. In combination, this serves the Load Shelf itself, which comes into play when hauling hose packs or attaching the Plus 900 or forthcoming Modules.
