Push Pack

By Harry


The main buckle closeure (tooth) on my Push Pack quickly broke on one side. Then the second tooth in the buckle broke. Are replacements available for purchase. If not, the bag is useless as it cannot be secured.


Great all around pack!

By 1Ranger


I wish he had a pack like this when I was active duty. It's a great well rounded pack and is extremely durable. I have used it from range shoots, hunting, work and family vacations. I love the concealed carry pouch and the multiple compartments to store needed items. I use this more than any pack I own! Great investment!


Comfortable, but poor workmanship

By cfw

from Louisiana

poor quality control on the seams in one of the pockets -- came unsewn in about 2 months.


Great bag!


from Texas

Great for throwing in the POV, or trunk of work vehicle.
I have bigger 5.11 bags, but for quick trips, this works great!


Right On!

By Retired EMT

from Austin, Texas

My Push Pack was purchased a couple years ago and still going strong! It has morphed from a search and rescue bag, to a daily carry bag, a conceal carry bag to a medical equipment bag. I dont leave home without it.


Great Bag! Needs two obvious changes

By Kestrel

from Dallas, TX

This is a great looking bag -- OK, it's a "man purse" -- and carries a nice amount of stuff without being too large. I carry some usual EDC (every day carry) items -- small first aid kit, flashlight, a few "survival" items, etc. -- and of course the discrete weapon pocket is a perfect place for my Glock 19. The bag carries well on your shoulder, and seems to be rugged and well made.

My two "complaints" about the bag are (1) the main compartment is 8 inches wide, which makes it about 1.5 to 2 inches too narrow to carry an iPad, and (2) the knife/flashlight pockets on the carry strap are too shallow to securely hold a medium sized (3.5" to 4" blade) folding knife – too much of the knife has to hang out of the pocket. To me, these are pretty obvious design mistakes, but the good news is they should be very easy to fix for 5.11.

Great bag overall, but I gave it only 4 stars due to those 2 obvious design flaws. I would still recommend this bag, but will buy the slightly modified bag if/when 5.11 makes it (come on 5.11, please make those two modifications... they really are obvious mistakes in design).


Great and helpful bag

By Cooks71

from Italy

I purchased this item almost two years ago. I use it everyday, and in my trips abroad.
Perfect to store my EDC stuff, and some additional item. The large hidden pocket is perfect to store a little first aid kit too.


A Great Investment

By Mr. Hunter

from Indianapolis, IN

From someone transiting from law enforcement to pastoral ministry. I have to say, this was one of the greatest purchases I've ever made. A couple of months ago, I had to shoot a Rottweiler that was actively charging at me. Without thinking about it, I was able to pull my weapon out of the concealed pocket and neutralize the threat. After the police arrived, one of them asked me about my Push Pack and said that he was going to get one.

This is also a great pack for someone who travels all of the time. Just remember to take the weapon out before going to the airport.


Great all-around Carry-All

By Greg

from Milford, CT

I use this bag to carry EVERYTHING that comes with me. I find it Very Easy to load, and Extremely Comfortable to carry no matter how full it is. It's large enough for wallet, weapons, & all the important Documents needed on a daily basis. I can bring a travel Mug on one side, my smaller Thermos on the other. I have recommended this to friends, & don't care about any "odd" looks I get while wearing it. There are many reasons for odd looks aside from the bag, so if you're looking for a "smallish" bag to keep your stuff in BUY IT!


Trouble with a PALS loop

By Mark in Tokyo

from Tokyo, Japan

Generally I love the bag... So much so that I bought one for a friend! I've had a carabiner attached to one of the PALS loops for a few months. I generally use it for such things as a bunch of keys, but sometimes hang a 700g general-purpose helmet that I sometimes use on my bicycle and for disaster preparedness (I live in Japan). That's the heaviest thing I've carried on it, and it's never for long (while going into a store etc.). I've recently found that the PALS loop was in danger of coming off completely, having detached with a frayed end about half its width, from the edge stitching. That was rather disappointing!

I own many 5.11 products including quite a few bags, and haven't had anything like this happen before. Hopefully it's a one-off thing.
