I am a soldier, ordered this backpack because all of the other backpacks I owned failed on me due to heavy load and excessive use. My issued assault pack is too small to pack what I need for small field exercise and operation.

I use this as my survival/camping pack when I'm hunting. It currently weighs 35 lbs and its missing some gear still.

I love how many pouches and pockets this pack has to store items, that part is a great bonus and its made of some very sturdy material. Its quite functional and there are lots of ways to get into your load easily without having to take everything out.

I do not like how uncomfortable the pack is. I had to have the waist straps done up super tight (to the point it was uncomfortable) and it still kept the load on my shoulders because the ridged back isn't stiff enough for the job. It bows away from your body so it cannot move the weight to your hips resulting in most of the weight carried on your shoulders. Considering its only 35 lbs and its killing my shoulders, I really would not recommend this pack for much over 20lbs. Given the storage space it has, whats the point if it can't carry a medium weight load comfortably?

There is also no adjustment for the straps height or yokes to bring the load closer to you so that it would conform better to your shoulders. Instead it falls away from your back and flops around and focuses the majority of the weight on a small surface on your shoulders. Very uncomfortable!!

Given the fact that I can go down to the local camping store and pick up a civilian pack of the same capacity, same style, that has more adjustment and a more ridged back to it, I think 5.11 needs to take a lesson in this respect from the civilian world.

I cannot give it more than 2 stars because it just kills me when I have it out and I can't have it on for more than 30 minutes.

  • 'bug Out'

I use the pack normally as my pack to take when I'm out in the hills. I also have it to load as appropriate if I ever need to 'bug out'.

For me personally, I'm a big, tall, heavy guy. Backpacks are often built for the average chap so if you've got big wide shoulders this is such a treat. It spreads the weight across thick 3 inch wide straps, across the bottom of your neck/top of back. What's more, due to the ergonomic design, the weight also is supported by the small of the back. Incredible design and manufacture. I carry 50lbs without batting an eyelid. I can even run with it comfortably.

An awesome feature is that if you've not got too much gear, it can pull tightly so it's not very deep. This means that it's not too clumbersome if you've dropped off your gear but you still want to carry it.

The only downside is that as a 48litre pack, I find it too big for every day use. I got the Rush 24 for daily use but it's nowhere near as comfy as this. I guess they had less to play with in a smaller pack. It's still good though- just wish the shoulder straps were as good as the 72.

All in all, 5 stars, absolutely awesome.

I took the bag on a 3 day hike down to the Supi Falls. The additional weight of the back was a concern but I think it is worth it to have a very durable bag. My only major issue with the bag is a water grommet that is in the small of your back tore up a good 2 inch by 2 inch patch of skin around my spine, that was incredible painful. I am looking for material to sew around this grommet so that I can save my spin and the skin around it.

The Rush 72 is a big bag. It has loads of compartments that you can stash your gear in. However, there is one big problem the Rush 72 have, and that 's the molle system. The stitching quality on the molle is not good. They tend to start fraying and then they break. The bag itself stays in tack, but the molle, not so much.

The bag is heavy but the waist belt is almost useless. This is because there is no yoke adjustment to conform to your back, so what happens the waist belt digs into your sides and doesn't really take the weight of your bag off your shoulders. But other than these two things, the Rush 72 is ok. However I would recommend 2 things, 1.load lifter straps, 2. Yoke adjustments.

Don't judge the backpack by way it looks

Best Uses

  • Bug Out Bag
  • Every day carry
  • Camping
  • Hunting

I use the MOB 10 backpack everyday and it stays in my car. This backpack I have packed in case we have to evacuate our house in case of an emergency and I have medical supplies in it, toilet paper batteries, flashlights and ect. The only real problem there is the shoulder straps are very uncomfortable and it's east to open but harder to open all the way. Yes it's heavy and it's going to be heavy because you have everything you need to last you 72 hours and maybe more. It's good to take when you go hunting and camping and just everyday carry if you know you're going to be gone all day or you're going out of town for a few days at a moments notice, you have it right there with you. Now yes I did say it was hard to open all the way, but if you need something and its easy to get to then it's easy to open at that point and it is easy to carry and it has a back support and it has A LOT of room to put what you need to put in it.
