Product Description


Like its namesake – the Bob Marshall Wilderness – this expedition pack is expansive, accessible and full of surprises. Sitting on the sturdy, new Guide Light MT™ Frame, you can load it from the top via the shroud access, get to all your gear from the side through the full-length, dual side zips and store a sleeping bag in the bottom Speedzip™. After a long stalk and a clean shot, the Overload® feature allows you to push the weight limits of what’s humanly possible on a packout. Expedition hunts feel like second nature when you carry the Marshall.
The new Guide Light MT Frame (Mystery Tech) continues the load carriage tradition of the tried- and-true Guide Light Frame™ and its rigid yet dynamic frame system, but with a few discrete changes. Utilizing custom-developed SJ Autolock buckles throughout, this new hardware collection provides the perfect blend of strength and weight. The 500D Light Plus fabric delivers high tensile and tear resistance, key characteristics for a robust, purpose-driven hunting frame.

  • The five-point waist belt incorporates the highly functional Redirect system and delivers solid weight distribution and eliminates slippage over your hips, regardless of the load.
  • Overload® feature provides functional expandability via a load sling between the pack and the frame, allowing you to put the bulk of the weight closest to your back for optimal comfort.
  • Removable Daypack Lid with shoulder straps
  • Top-loading shroud for easy/secure packing
  • Hydration reservoir compatible
  • Two external long pockets for rapid access and sized for spotting scopes
  • Daisy chain for attaching accessories
  • Speedzip™ compartment for easy access to sleeping bag
  • Bottom and side compression straps
  • Side zip for easy access to main bag
  • Quick attach frame cap hardware provides easier Overload™ feature conversion
  • Removable Quick Attach Zoid Bag included (attaches on inside of side zips)
  • Autolock buckles prevent slippage
  • Side water bottle, rifle or tripod pockets
  • Weight: 7.1 lbs
  • Volume: 6408 cu-in
  • Dimensions: 31.5"x15"x14.5"
  • Frame System: Guide Light MT Frame
  • Harnessing Style: Framed

Muley Bound
I like everything about it so far. Versatility, Options, Meat can be carried outside of the interior, Padding, Weight Distribution.
I will know alot more when I get to the hills with it loaded with gear. Even more when I haul my Buck back to camp.

Big ,but Small
Waited over 6 months for the Marshall and it was worth the wait. I don't like digging through my pack to get items. The 2 torpedo pouches on the outside hold all rain gear and shelters. The top removable bag hold thing that I got to throughout the day. I use as a day and multiple day trip pack. As a day pack it collapses down nicely. Worth every dollar. Tell your friend's the Marshall is back in town.

Needs work.
good materials/durable,
varied storage,
large tube pouches.
pack lid is nice having two pouches
bottom access is well designed and should last. straight zipper = less wear.
strong zippers.
side access is sometimes handy. "usually not but sometimes".

Overload feature is useless, the pack may hold 150lbs or more but the overload forces weight too far back. good luck with that!
5 point belt / hip load carrier is flawed. causes a severe anterior "forward" tilt of the hips which can lead to a slough of back, hip, and knee issues. I alleviated the issue by unclipping the buckles and straps holding the shaped spacers which force that tilt. i tied the spacers to lie flat and if this works well over time I will cut them off completely..... much more natural and neutral hip position now. still holds weight well enough with little slip.
Harness attached poorly to frame especially for a 5'6" person. causing excessive pull backwards. the frame is designed for 5'10" I think and without further design for changes of harness position and how the load tightening straps will change angle. I fixed by tieing the shoulder straps tightly to the frame after setting height of back panel. took 2 full days of screwing with and doing hikes with weight to get it right.
Minor gripe. the top pouch is useless as a day pack. too small and weird shape. those extra straps and buckles are a waste of weight as it will never be used. functions fine on the pack however.
when day lid is removed the long cinch straps that connect to it have nowhere to go and snag on brush even when tied/rolled. also there could be a top flap "also a place for buckles for those pesky straps" to shed minor precipitation without the lid for day hikes or light loads.
Minor possible issue. the locking buckles could break with use in very cold weather. ie. Alaska cold. I will carry spares..they are also a pain to use as it takes two hands to adjust them. they are secure though for whatever that is worth.
Carries about 50 percent of my body weight fairly well. this is a con only in that I have used other packs that carry well at 60-80 percent. take that as you will as it is an opinion based of my body type. 5'6" and lean 125lb.

An all-purpose workhorse adaptable to any occasion.
This pack is exactly what I was looking for, it’s comfortable and fits me well at 5’9”. It’s large enough to haul all the essentials for an extended trip with my young son, and has enough diversity of compartments to keep important items organized and accessible. I’ve let to put any meat on it’s shelf, but I was able to use it for carrying firewood which saved a lot of time and effort. For short and fast projects I can quickly remove the bag from the frame and exchange it for my Mule bag, making the purchase even more versatile. I’m sure many users would not have a need for a pack this large or versatile, but it’s perfect for my needs, and will allow my to retire both my Arc’teryx Bora 95 and my Mystery Ranch Terraframe 50 packs.

MR systems are superior to any other competitor.
I waited to write a review for a few months now to make sure I wasn’t just trying to justify to expense of this purchase... but let me tell you, I am genuinely satisfied with this pack.

I got this pack anticipating western game hunts; however, because of the design of the compression straps it compresses down nicely for quick trips, thru-hikes, or other non-expedition style trips. To date, I’ve put around 75 miles on it in two months. I use it to ruck every few days. The comfort of this pack is unlike any other I’ve experienced. I’ve experienced the yoke system on the Hotshot packs our state crew uses, which sold me on MR Packs.

For comparison, I ruck with 60-80 pounds regularly, and the pack before this one was a Vietnam era Medium size Alice Pack. After the second mile you could feel every ounce of that weight. With the Marshall, it feels almost like half the weight. Its distributed so well I can ruck twice as far and harder because I’m not in discomfort, my shoulders dont feel assautled, and it conforms to your body well. The flexible frame is awesome when I take my Dane on the trail with me. She has to be leashed and her tension on the leash changes my posture. With the Marshall, its not as big of a deal, she tires out and quits pulling before I become uncomfortable unlike my old pack.

Lastly, I purchased the MR large Hooded Fly since we’ve had so much wet weather. Holy cow, that combination is a game changer. Nothing but quality from MR. I’ll be purchasing more packs for my Fiancé and my step daughter.

Just what I always wanted/needed
Not much more needed to be said other than, WOW! That is what this product does. Every time you think it is done amazing you, wow another nook or cranny shows up to impress. Waited a long time to buy, wish I had not! So many sore backs, begging pack trips to end. Now, you feel the weight but it all sits just right so more comfortable than imagination can comprehend. Awesome pack! Will be buying another for my wife! Thank you for delivering what you said it would!!

Exceptional Product!
My son hasn't had the opportunity to use it much, however this pack is made very well. It it is extremely comfortable, and he can't wait to use it for deer and elk hunting season and pack out an animal. Keep up the great work!

Great pack, works for all size trips
I thought this pack would be way too big, but it works great for small and large loads. When the bag isn't fully loaded it compresses down well and doesn't slosh around, and when you need to expand it and cram tons of food and gear it will hold it all.

All around great pack, highly recommend.

Best Backcountry Pack around
I am an avid backcountry hunter and angler, this pack will do it all. I can pack a seek outside with stove 7 days of food, and all my gear and clothes. It carries really comfortably even with a elk quarter on your back.
