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...?

Perfect Day Pack

By Ethan

Pros

  • Fast Shipping
  • Durable
  • Great price
  • High Quality

My profession is

  • First Responder

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

Best Uses

  • Day trips
  • Hiking

I bought this pack as my day trip hiking bag. Based on my experience with the Rush 24, this pack will work perfectly for shorter hikes as it is much less bulky compared to the 24. Even though the product description says it'll hold a 70oz hydration bladder, the Camelbak Mil-spec 100oz Short bladder fits PERFECTLY.

I like the bag. a couple of weeks after buying it the seam on the strap started to split. I use the rush 12 everyday but it is not made as well as the rush 72 I own.

Great Day Hike bag

Best Uses

I bought the Rush 12 after I had bought the Rush 24. Both bags are awesome! The organization design is grate and is hard to find on other bags.
I bought 2 knock off brands, that are similar, but they lack the durability and organization.
My only thumbs down is using the MOAB 6 with this bag. The MAOB 6 attaches fine, however it tends to move a lot, even when it is snug on the bag.
Other than that, I 100% recommend the 511 bags. I just ordered a Rush-72

Top quality and features that are expected from 5.11. My biggest problem with the pack is the lack of information on the website about it in comparison to the 72. The Rush "series" video is great for the 72 but doesn't say much about the other packs. Be wary when shopping, the 12 & 24 are not smaller copies of the 72 (which is fantastic). Features like the stuff pocket and side pockets are lost with the 12 because of the size. The website could be more helpful in pointing out these differences. I will be trying out the All Hazards Nitro to meet my day pack needs.
