Love the bag and super handy!


Fantastic bag

By David H /Scandinavian Wilderness Society


This bag does everything right, Great organization and weight distribution, this pack cannot be recommended enough.


Legendary backpack

By Sam


I've owned this bag for 3 years and from school, hiking, camping, mission trips, and more this backpack has been everywhere and done everything I've needed it to do. This pack is big enough to fit a weeks worth of (summer) clothes in, big enough to fit a separated AR.

The construction is rock solid. And the zippers are a thing of beauty, dozens of times I've put enough stress on them to where I think they may break, but they never have and I doubt they ever will.

If anything happened to this bag I wouldn't hesitate to drop the money for another. Seriously the best $100 I've ever spent.


Great back pack!

By William


I've owned the rush 12 a little over two years now. it goes everywhere with me and carries a lot of weight. Not one stitch has come lose or busted. High quality product!



By Webb


I love this backpack. It is great when I'm on drills or everyday carry pack. I use it constantly. I just ordered a couple more items I can use to make it even better. You won't go wrong with this pack.


Great bag.....

By Kris


I recently purchased this back pack, and so far it is great. The only thing I wish it had was a place to mount a holster on the inside of the back pack to carry my extra firearm so it would be concealed, other than that awesome bag.


Great bag!

By Aven


I use this bag as an everyday carry bag for a year now. if packed right this can be used as a 3 day pack or even more! As a surgeon, I use it to carry some of my instruments, other bags tend to be punctured by them but not this one.. nice bag.


Excellant Quality

By Ken

I use the Rush 12 to carry my laptop computer, first aid kit, rain gear, jacket, emergency overnight kit and a change of socks and underwear. I travel frequently and this always goes with me. I use the backpack daily and it has held up. The zippers still work perfectly, there are no tears or wear marks. Well worth the price.


Going to last forever.

I hope they never stop making this bag, b/c at this rate, with its rugged build, my first bag is going to last me 10 years.


80% perfect backpack

By ForestMantis

from Europe

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.
