Episode 52: The Soup to Nuts Pack Podcast with Dana Gleason of MYSTERY RANCH
View Original: The Journal Of Mountain Hunting
This episode was recorded on location at Mystery Ranch HQ in Bozeman, MT shortly after Adam received a behind the scenes tour of the MR facility.
Adam sits down with Dana Gleason, the founder of Mystery Ranch, and Ryan Holm, MR’s Marketing Manager (and past guest) to dive into a true soup to nuts discussion about backpacks.
There are few people in this world with more knowledge about packs and pack systems than Dana Gleason. The history behind the brand is a story worthy of its own podcast but we don’t stop there.
In this show, you’ll hear the founding story of the company, the growing pains endured as they scaled from a handful of people to a global brand with multiple, purpose-built pack lines, how their design philosophies have evolved over the decades, and Dana’s thoughts on why pack fit is a topic that requires your constant attention.
