Mystery Ranch SHIFT

Minimalist Fire Pack = Full-Fledged Transformer

Light and fast, this is our most streamlined Fire Pack. NFPA categorizes it as PPE, we call it Load Carrying Equipment. It’s both, plus so much more: a pack prepared for that wind shift when your fire crests the hill and starts spotting a mile out. A simple and burly IA tool—just fire shelter storage, fusee sheath, detail pocket, load shelf, Futura framing, and optional Hydration—that Shifts into extended attack, single resource assignments, and mission-specific versatility.


  • Three components combine to form the fundamental innovation that makes the Shift System truly unique: its Operational Load Shelf.
  • 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 are 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 is all serves the Load Shelf itself, which comes into play when hauling hose-packs, attaching the Plus 900 or forthcoming Modules, or doing something outside the box, like hauling 5 gal jerry cans, or strapping on a few drip-torches.
  • Operational Load Shelf helps haul hosepacks, mount modules, and carry other equipment
