I picked this up in the official 5.11 shops in the Philippines because I needed an additional pouch for my NVGs or to serve as a sustainment pouch for extra food/water. I decided to grab this and mount it on my LBE for training (as opposed to bringing an assault bag). Having already put a 5.11 single mag pouch on my LBE for my military-issue multitool, I decided to give this pouch a try. True enough, it fits an MRE with room to spare or my NVGs. 4/5 stars for ease of attachment, size and durability. I can’t give it 5/5 due to the lack of padding, a grommet on the drain hole and the fact that you can’t adjust the SlickStick tabs left or right. Given the quality and size though, this is way worth it!
I bought these to go on the sides of my RUSH 72. The one I bought last year is great. Very durable material just like the backpack. Plenty of room, and a great way to expand your pack. The one that I just received this year seems lackluster. Dimensions are the same, but the material seems thinner and less durable. I'd rather pay more for the quality I've come to expect from 5.11.
These pockets either the are both very roomy
either the 10"w x 6"h x 3"d or the
6"w x 10"h x 3"d.
They both come with MOLLE on the outside to be able to "double-up" pockets if needed.
They both come with lashing straps on the back to be able to connect it to your MOLLE system. So there are no need for "Speed-clips" or other similar products, saving you money.
PROS - The size is very adequate to fit almost any of your needs.
bang for the buck is great.
CONS - NO YKK ZIPPERS, and lashing straps are not removable for those of us wanting to use "Speed-clips" or similar products.
This 6 by 10 pouch is only about 3 or inches deep, so it does not hold much. I am using it for my emergency medical kit.
i have two of these one on each side of my rush 72 great size and doesnt take away needed space from pack plenty of space to hold bulky gear like gloves and knee/elbow pads works perfectly easily accessable
I'm a little heartbroken to find that the slickstick system is not adjustable to the left or right, and that I didn't research it beforehand. I own two of the Rush 24 bags for different purposes and I now own two 6.10 pouches, a 6.6 pouch, and a 6.6 med pouch to just now find that they are too wide for slickstick side mounting on my 5.11 Rush Packs. Side Mounting of these pouches to a Rush pack should be a first choice of anyone not wishing to put weight further out from their center of gravity for heavy wear. I of course can solve this with other's mounting hardware leaving one of the slickstick's unused. Know if 5.11 sold a modular slickstick system, I would have purchased it for this purpose. Over all the pouches are exactly what I want, for the need I want, I just didn't expect them not to be easily mounted on their own Rush packs.
I added this pouch to my 36" Gun Case for extra storage and cleaning supplies. Works great, looks like the the gun case was made with it originally.
I've not yet determined what I'll use this for. It might work well for map/compass but i'd like to see internal padded enclosure(s) for GPS, binoccolars, camcorder - not necessarily all in one pouch though.
I use this pouch to carry tools at my job as a wind turbine tech. I just put a carabiner on the back that I can snap to the hip D-ring on my climbing harness and load it up. Its tough and has room for just about anything.Only problem I have had was after my buddy dropped it down a 75ft. tower span. The zipper broke on one side, but I can close it mostly up. I'm still using it[...]
Very well made pouch. The only thing wrong is the snaps keep coming unsnapped.
