A lost (but not forgotten) mythical beast
It had to be the Japanese powerhouse A&F’s 40th-anniversary celebration pack. The unattainable, ultra-rare reimagined hunting pack turned urban legend. One of the most desired Mystery Ranch backpacks of all time. One that if you are able to find one, it regularly sells for between $800-$1,000 USD on eBay, secondhand, and made of Cordura nylon.
Dragon in the Ranch
Reborn without compromises
A brother to the Unicorn
Lighter, stronger, built to fly anywhere
Pocketfuls of gold (and access)
A waterfall (when needed)
Hidden magic (Stick-It)
Load-bearing origami wings
Branding at the heart
A samurai myth (for morale)
The two patches are meant to be displayed side by side, as a diptych, with the two warriors riding their mythical beasts towards each other. Maybe towards war, maybe towards peace, maybe towards both simultaneously.
Of course, we need to give a big shout-out to the incredibly talented genius illustrator who designed the last patch and who does all kinds of fantastic work for Carryology (one of the founders of Carryology), Hadrien Monloup. Extra shout-out to our friend Alexander Ryu Long in Japan who helped us fact-check the symbolism for the patch design. Thank you!
