I use it to stash the stuff i would need for an emergency. Ideal for leaving in a car during work. For EDC i would just detach my 5.11 Rush 12. It would be nice if 5.11 would put specs on each of the pockets/compartments. It would also be great if the Hydration Bladder compartment had specs. I have measured it but it seems to be narrow at the bottom, I was about to purchase an 18inch 3Liter bladder for it. But i'd rather not risk it not fitting. So im going through the trouble of ordering an uncommon 13.5inch 3Liter bladder.

I use this as a cold weather 'grab bag' (old version) for Mountain Rescue operations here in the Idaho rockies. It holds all the gear needed, and then some! It's a comfortable fit. It's a little heavy, even when empty. But tuck your skirt in and be man and carry that little bit of extra weight. It's worth it.

I just received my pack today. First impressions, Awesome! I have had a lot of packs in the past (surplus and civilian). And although they were great packs, they just weren't what I was looking for. I spend a lot of time in the Adirondacks and Wyoming so I need a good, sturdy pack. Did research, read and watched reviews, and finally chose the Rush 72. Haven't used it yet, but this seems to be the one I've been looking for. Can't wait to get it packed!

Great pack. I have used this on deployments with my disaster team on many occasions and holds everything I need. I have been doing triathlons the past couple of years and this bag is the perfect size, also makes it easy to pick out my bag from all the other "Sporty looking" bags.

Very disappointed in one feature with this and all 511 rush backpacks - the zippers are NOT locking YKK RC Fuse zippers, meaning - you cannot lock them. I travel often with this, and carry valuable and dangerous equipment that I do not want accessed by strangers, kids, etc. All my other bags having locking zippers which allow me to use a basic luggage lock to scare away basic thieves. I am SHOCKED this bag, with all it's features, does NOT have this option. I'd pay an extra $20 just to get the zippers lockable. Unbelievable oversight!

Heavy bag, but feels light on back.

This bag is a heavy, durable beast. The people complaining that the bag digs into their shoulders and back do not have the shoulder straps properly adjusted. They are most likely wearing it like a college kid using bad posture. The most important thing to properly distribute the load is to shorten the shoulder straps which pulls the bag up closer to your neck and keeps it snug against your back. This distributes the load across your back, keeps it from digging into your lower back, and stops it from swinging around when you turn. It makes the load feel about half as heavy also, so tug on those straps until the yoke is fitting around your neck.

As for the bag, it is great. It is basically a medium to large duffle with 10 times the organization and expansion possibilities with the moab packs and molle pouches. I like it a lot.

I use this bag primarily for work, it's large enough to store all my required equipment and rain coat/fleece and still have space left over. This bag is great quality, I've taken this bag on deployment, camping, hiking, traveling, you name it and there's still very little wear; and I've had it since late 2011. My compliant is it's too heavy, the bag empty weighs too much let alone with your gear in it and because how the shoulder straps sit it places the waist straps in an awkward position rendering them almost useless. Other that that it's a great bag and am pleased with the purchase.
