I have used this bag going on four years(?) I believe I bought it in 2011. At first I was put off by the price but I decided to go ahead and get it anyway.
I am a former ForceRecon Marine and currently a Sheriff's deputy as well as a National Guardsman. I use this bag everyday. I own three in a multitude of colors( black/multicam/flat dark earth) Now I use each one for different things. One for duty in my squad car, one for weekend drill, and one for EDC when I'm off duty. I love the multitude of pockets and applications of said pockets. I have found them to be the best bugout bags. I have carried my black bag on duty now since 2011 and it has yet to fail me . I have loaded that beast down with everything from ammo and spare clips for both my duty sidearm and my M-4 to first aid and extra cuffs. I have always been on the look out for a quality bag to get my stuff where it's needed and folks this bag is the one. The modular capabilities alone are excellent. I love the built in hydration pocket to the soft lined pocket on top for shades and or a phone. When I'm in my unit it sits on the from seat and I know my stuff is secure and within easy reach. If you are looking for an awesome bag that can handle any mission then this is the bag for you.Plus my multicam and flat dark earth bags are the upgraded versions and they have tweaked them to perfection in my opinion. I carried my multicam in Afghanistan last year and beside a little wear and tear and a bullet hole it's still doing its job. Well done sirs on this product. I raved about this bag so much most of my guard unit carries them and all of my squad does.

I have owned and field tested many packs, in many different scenarios. This is an overall good pack. I use it every day. I love the organization and durability. I have carried this pack for about 9 months. In general, I love it. It is a good pack, but falls short of being a great pack. When I carry a pack all day I like to have a waist belt to help stabilize the pack and take some of the load off of my shoulders. This pack has a place to add a waist belt, but it only fits up to a 1.5" belt. I added a Brokos belt for comfort, but the 1.5" attatch points limit how I can attatch it to the pack since most good tactical belts are 1.75". I wanted to use a 1.75" belt with a quick release. When I'm hiking and I cross streams, if I fall in I need a quick release. I have yet to find a quick release belt in 1.5", but in 1.75" they are easy to find. I also would find two additional compression straps useful. The two on the top are nice, two on the bottom as well would be much better. This would help keep the load as close to my body as possible, and makes navigating in the woods easier. Overall I would recommend, and have recommended this pack to my friends. With a few minor adjustments, this could easily be the best pack on the market.

I use this pack for day hikes, over night hikes, traveling. It's my go to bag, because this pack is so versatile. It's easy to keep clean. I just wish 5.11 made a pack like this, but in a 65 to 70 liter bag. I will provide my own hip belt. It's the pockets and organization that sold me on this pack. No need for pouches, just find a pocket and you are set. Wallets are hidden, valuables can also be hidden. Please do not add heavy pouches on the outside, it will throw your balance. I have had 40 plus pounds in it and it held up like a champ. 5.11 makes and designs the best packs out there. You will not find a better pack. I am thinking about giving this one to my brother and buying the Grey one. I have the sand stone version btw. Good looking bag. A few things I wish 5.11 would up grade is a flap for the sun glasses zipper pocket. The front Administration area needs to extend out another 2 inches from the bottom. Increase the width of the yoke by a inch or so. I love that I can add my own hip belt.The best backpack I have ever own.

It's a well constructed pack with a good size and layout but the lack of a waist belt makes it unstable and uncomfortable on longer walks. There are buckles for attachment of a waist belt but 5.11 tactical doesn't include one or sell one as an accessory. Would also like to see better ventilated (and lightweight) padding on the shoulder straps and back of the pack.
Would've been a perfect rating if not for those 2 things. Hope to see improvements in the next versions of this pack.

Okay, so I have spent a RIDICULOUS amount of time looking for the right EDC backpack for me. Requirements are, lots of PALS webbing, needs to fit a 15" Macbook Pro reasonably well (not just floating around in the main compartment), have enough interior pouches to organize the several hard drives, optical drives, external batteries, etc, etc ,etc that I carry, have a decent to good admin area for all of my pens, docs, ID's, knife etc. that I carry, have two straps because I ride a motorcycle and sling bags suck, not be a cheap piece of *. Oh, and the main reason for the PALS straps is that I have a MOLLE DSLR camera bag that I want to be able to comfortably attach to the bag while traveling, riding etc.
It is not an exaggeration that I have spent at least 30 hours in the past week online searching for the bag to suit my needs. I have bought 3 different bags, only to return each one after I got home and tried to load it. Maxpedition Falcon II, too small to fit laptop properly, the only bag they had that would work was the Kodiak, but it is a single strap bag and would be a nightmare when riding. I bought a Camelbak Motherlode which was huge and fit the laptop with it's sleeve in the hydration pocket nicely, but once again, despite it's size (37 liters) it's lack of organizing pockets left me with a big ole lump of junk at the bottom of my bag making it hard to carry and even harder to find what I needed. On top of that, when I attached my DSLR back to the Pals the whole thing sagged terribly and made it even worse to carry. Returned. Found a distributor for the Condor bags, picked up a Venture. This pack was pretty good functionally, but was just not built up to the specs that I wanted. I want a pack that will last, that is solid and that I can trust. The Condor wasn't that. Returned. Drago Gear Tracker, almost, but too small and kinda cheap (though not as bad as the Condor). Returned. 6 more hours on the internet searching everywhere from Cheaper than Dirt to Kifaru, from the Kifaru X-ray at almost $400 and a waiting list, to almost giving up to... 5.11.
OMG as my daughter would say. A finally a company that get's it. The Rush series backpacks come in different sizes, small, medium and large, they have great reviews on this site, they sound like they have great construction, look to have lots of versatility and organization and I see quality sensible webbing. Did I finally find a pack that would work? It sounded too good to be true, but finally around 2 am last night I found a retailer near me from this site, saved the info then went to sleep.
First thing I did today was head on over to look at these bags. Within a few seconds of having this bag in my hand I felt that I had a winner, a few minutes latter I had not only a Rush 24, but the Rush Moab 6 at the checkout counter. Both bags cost me less than most of the other bags I had looked at so I feel like I got the Moab for free.
The Rush 24 is everything I had hoped for in a EDC backpack. Well, besides two things, I wish it had a few PALS straps inside the small pocket to add a pouch I want to carry in there and I wish that my computer would fit in the hydration pocket instead of having to go into sleeve in the main compartment, if the opening to the hydration pocket was literally an inch wider at the top the laptop would fit in there and be super accessible as well as very protected. You hear me 5.11? All in all I am HAPPY with this pack. Super sturdy construction, lots of organization available without interfering with the ability to carry large loads if needed. The DSLR case attaches pretty well and since the back has a small back board there is no sagging at all. All I did was stick my MSM water bottle corset on the side and load the thing up. I am ready to go!
Love this bag. Very happy. I have no doubts that it will hold up to use as well.

This pack was a Christmas present from my wife. It's an awesome pack with tons of pockets. My biggest problem was trying to remember which pocket I stored things in. It's a great pack, looks sharp and none of my fellow officers has one so it's easy to locate. I love this pack...

I travel a lot. And these days, I want to carry only the gear I need in one bag - preferably a backpack. That's why I have two Rush 72's. The older one was the first 5.11 bag I bought. Since then, I've bought other, smaller 5.11 bags that I could carry inside my 72's. But I also wanted a smaller...er..."larger" bag that I could carry onto a plane, train and/or bus that didn't take up as much space as my 72's.

Enter the Rush 24.

I've taken it on a few of my trips during the past year, when it worked best for those particular trips, and have never been disappointed. In fact, I have it with me right now on my week-long trip. In my Rush 12 review I talk about how it is secretly a TARDIS - small on the outside, humongous on the inside. It's the same with the 24. I packed precisely what I needed, plus a tiny bit more - and I still have space. So I packed a small go bag inside the 24 that carries my laptop, tablet, and a few other essentials that I need for the day.

Now I'm contemplating using the 24 for most of my trips that last 7 - 10 days, and use my 72 for longer trips. I'm also contemplating packing my 12 for my next trip instead of my go bag. The 12 fits, perfectly with my other gear inside my 24, so I know it won't be a problem.

The Rush 24 is a rugged, durable, deceptively large bag that works well for me as a travel bag. It's a winner in my book.

Hmm. I may even buy a second one in the future.

If you are looking for a multi-purpose, comfortable Backpack: this is your choice!

Easy to load, comfortable on the back even when fully loaded and good for hiking or weekend trips. Really nice as Carry-on baggage.

Used it for weekend trips in Europe or as carry-on luggage for travel to Florida with my two kids.

Add a H20 Carrier for your Nalgene Bottle or an Admin Pouch for easy access to documents or EDC tools and you have a really nice solution from EDC carry to business or leisure trips.
