Bought this bag for an admin and personal protective equipment. So far its perfect keeps admin gear and rules books organized and handy. Also keeps safety gear sorted. Will be ordering a rush 72 bag for personal gear on longer trips


Bring back TACOD please!

By 93fd3s

Great all around bag. Large capacity, configurable, sufficient pockets for organizational needs. I use this as a range bag to haul shooting and video equipment to the range. 600 rounds of ammo plus shooting supplies disappear into and it remains comfortable to carry using the shoulder straps. My bag has become damaged and I wanted to replace it...but it's no longer available in TACOD...and all my gear is olive drab. I'll have to look elsewhere for a replacement.


Great bag after some alterations

By Chaser

from Walla Walla, WA

I use this as a front seat patrol organizer. The shoulder strap is routed around the headrest. I then use a zip tie to pull up in the handle to fully secure it. I've placed a small plastic file holder in the rear compartment to prevent the fabric from closing in. Makes it easy to toss in my notebook and clipboard. The front compartment holds my big hat. The smaller pockets hold: pamphlets, latex gloves, hand sanitizer, tint meter, digital camera, ... Bag is now 5 years old, with only one clip that broke. Would be even more perfect if 5.11 made a hat press / campaign cover holder for the bags front compartment.

Quality I'd expect from 5.11

By Medic Starshine

from Upstate NY

Although I received this product free when purchasing the 5.11 U4.300 Flashlight (as part of a deal), if I had paid for it, I'd be quite satisfied. As both a student and first responder, this bag has performed many roles and performed them well. As an engineering student, I used this bag to hold my laptop, tools, and materials for projects. As an EMT, I've used this bag to hold any extra duty gear I need as well as my laptop, a blanket for overnights, and anything I could possibly need for long shifts.

Cons: small items will shift between compartments in the main area and it's a bit bulky


great bag


from Ogden utah

fits one the seat and holds all the things a patrol officers needs for work. Has plenty of room and easy to organize your items.


One solid piece of gear

By Paranoid but prepared

from Twin Cities, Minnesota

I use this as my doomsday preparedness bag. With the amount MREs, medicine, first aid stuff, and water bottles I can fit in it, I could live solely out of this bag for about a week and a half. I'd like to eventually get a backpack to more easily carry stuff around for when civilization finally fails, but this does just fine.
I can fit MREs, water bottles, medicine, first aid stuff, a blanket, spare ammo, and some survival gear in it with a little extra room for a few rolls of dut tape, binoculars, and a pair of magazines. I use the handles to secure a tent on top of the bag.
I'd recommend this as a bug-out bag, but a backpack of similar quality would be ideal. I try as much as possible to stockpile gear that I know won't fail me, and this pack certainly won't.


Incredibly versatile

By OpelBlitz

from Illinois

Got two of these for sale online -- they can be used for such a variety of tasks, it's difficult to list them all. I originally got them with the intent to use them as vehicle bug-out bags. I found them useful for so many other things, from range bags to every day carry (in a limited capacity).


Good Bang, for your Buck!

By RailRunner

from Pittsburgh, PA

Excellent grip. After 2 yrs of abuse, a hole has worn into the side/zippered end pocket. If there was a way for 5.11 to re-enforce those end zippered pockets with a heavier duty material or a protective device, this bag would be virtually indestructible. So, I bought a 2nd, and hopefully I can get another 2 yrs out of this one.


Great Service

By Mark

from Syracuse, N.Y.

5.11, I have several orders so I'll just comment that the service is great. Website is very easy too navigate. Had to return 2 things because they weren't the write size and I was contacted quickly via email and RA's were given. Look forward to doing business in the future!
