Okay, so in short this bag is the best bag ever.
I have a tendency to go through bags because I carry a lot of heavy books, the corners tend to tear through the material most backpacks are made of. But not this bag. I abuse this bag constantly and it has yet to do anything but preform. There's a lot I like about this bag, and pretty much nothing I don't.

Capacity: typically I don't use this pack to max capacity but I have and it holds A LOT. I've fit 3 notebooks, a 1" binder, computer, and 3 text books in there, plus charger and pencils and all the goodies in the extra pockets. In terms of packing, I can easily get 3 nights worth of clothing and toiletries no problem.

Support: the support on this bag is great. The yoke style straps distribute the load really nicely and you don't get any discomfort no matter how full it is. There are pads down at the bottom as well, which is great for when you have to carry the bag for a long time. Theres even a grippy material that keeps it from moving around a lot, but its still comfortable even on bare skin.

Pockets: this thing has an INSANE amount of pockets. I honestly don't use all of them regularly, but it has something for everything. I really like the mesh zipper pockets in the main compartment. Thats what separates this pack from others. Usually I keep chargers and cords in there, but it's great for toiletries and such if you're traveling, or small things that usually fall to the bottom if you're on the job.

Material Quality: I read that some people were having issues with zippers and seams, but I have yet to come close to any of those issues. Not a single seam has popped and the zippers work flawlessly. The material on the bag is everything you could ever want from a tac bag. Its heavy duty without heavy weight. It breaks in really nicely, but still holds its shape fabulously. Living in Florida and being a student usually means I have to walk somewhere no matter what the weather, and most afternoons that means torrential downpours. I know this bag isn't advertised as such, but it's absolutely weatherproof. I've never had so much as a drop leak through in the heaviest, sideways rain. It keeps everything inside safe and dry. Also the material dries very quickly, so you dont end up toting around a soggy sack.

The only thing I might do is get another since I use this thing for everything. School, travel, gym, outdoors, sports, etc. It kinda get's annoying loading and unloading things every two seconds. However, this is an awesome bag and I wouldn't be nervous about buying it whatsoever.

Very good for as EDC, for hiking, hunting and outdoor activity.
Because of sliping straps, for me, limited using as a tactical - if you run, and weight of the bag is over 12 lbs, the bag is moving down on your back.
Waist belt will help.
If you carry an axe for example, you must improvize how to fix it on the bag. 2 side strap will fix it. Othervise, great product.

I use this bag for everything. When I go on a short vacation (2-3 days) this is the bag I use. When I'm going on a day hike this is the bag I use. My work takes me away from home a lot. I use this bag as my EDC/ Get home bag.
My wife got me this bag about three years ago, and since then I've had no other bag. I am, however, thinking of getting the Rush 24, just to increase my options a little bit.

I recently used the Rush 12 as my travel pack on a weekend trip to great success. So much so that I decided to used it as my travel pack for two weeks.

So far, it's been successful, too. It helps that I've packed only what I need and nothing else. I'm staying in a place where I have access to laundry facilities, so I didn't need to pack and excess of clothing. I also packed my Macbook Air, my iPad Mini, as well as my Covert Z.A.P. for when I want to carry an even smaller pack around town. Everything fit into the Rush 12 with room to spare. I even emptied all of my travel gear (that's right - all of it) into the Z.A.P. and used the Rush 12 to tote around my laptop a few times.

Win-Win.

The Rush 12 is both versatile and adaptable in ways I never imagined. I'll be using it for future short-term, and long-term, trips. I'm confident it will meet the challenge with no problem.

I got this pack used, and in perfect condition, not from the owner but because of the craftsmanship of the pack. I use it daily, always switching out from day use hiking, over night hiking, range day, work, and loading it up with my kids stuff. All around this is an amazing piece. Truly strong, fits more than you could imagine, yet just the right size. I was weary about this pack being to bulky for every day stuff, but I was wrong. This product comes highly recommended from me.
Currently, Ive got the 5.11 med kit stocked on the one side, the 5.11 rifle sleeve(which works awesome as well) on the front, a double mag pouch and voodoo leather-man/gps combination pouch on the other side. Also a 72oz bladder in its proper place as well.

5.11 delivers a great product once again. I currently own three of the Rush 12 bags. One as an active shooter bag on patrol, one for hunting, and one for personal use. The Rush 12 is small enough to use for day to day operations, but large enough to fit the necessities. The bag is extremely comfortable and durable. I highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for a high quality bag.

I've had this bag for a few months & it's amazing. I can't find one major flaw about it. I use this bag for everyday use, camping, running, & on operations. The bag is very comfortable even when stuffed with heavy equipment. The molle webbing allows me to attach more stuff to the bag. The admin pocket allows me to carry valuable EDC gear. I don't recommend you put your sunglasses in the sunglass pocket. I would carry my sunglasses there & my glasses broke since its a struggle to put your glasses in the pocket or take them out. Other than that this a great bag, best bag I've had so far.

It's A TARDIS!

When I was studying the Rush 12, in detail, before buying it, I found two videos reviewing it. The first one shows a guy packing for a four day trip. He packed everything he needed for his trip in the Rush 12, and still had space to spare. The second video was comparing the 12 to the 24. This guy was able to put everything he had in his Rush 24 into his Rush 12. My first thought was that the Rush 12 reminded me of Doctor Who's TARDIS - small on the inside, humongous on the inside.

So I tried it...in three variations.

First, I packed my Rush 72, which can hold at least two week of travel gear if I do my part (I got that from another video I saw), and still have room. Then I looked at the one week of packing and tried packing it in the 24. It fit just fine thankyouverymuch. Then I looked at my Rush 12 and thought, "why not?" The 12 was filled to the gills, but it all fit. Now, I like to take a smaller pack with me when I travel so I can carry essentials with me during the day. I looked at the 12 and 24 and thought, "I bet it works."

Sure enough, after re-packing my gear into the 24, I packed the 12 on top of it. Yes, that worked, too. I had, essentially, packed a TARDIS inside a TARDIS. Just looking at my Rush 72, I knew I could have packed the 24, with my travel gear inside it, into my 72. A TARDIS inside a TARDIS, inside a TARDIS.

Score!

You say you're making 12, 24, and 72 hour bags, 5.11, but now I know your secret. You're actually making packs that can carry travel gear for days and weeks. Well, now your secret is out, and I have one thing to say - "Please, don't ever stop making these bags? They're worth every penny. Now, what other great secrets can I discover about the Rush 12...?
