This backpack is amazing

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Zelja


Have it for 2 years and everything is just amazing, durable, lots of room, organized. Perfect!

Good Capacity & Internal Organization, But...

 Rated 4.0 stars

From MAJ (CA)


The RUSH 72 serves as my all-purpose 3-day assault pack. Well made, good capacity, and excellent internal organization. The shoulder strap arrangement leaves something to be desired, however, and the external stuff pouch doesn't seem particularly useful; I worry that its not deep enough to secure things against falling out or catching on branches, etc. That said, for the money, this pack is more versatile than most of the other 3-day assault packs out there from the leading suppliers of military gear. A bonus is that it is much easier to haul around than my TT MALICE rucksack, which can carry a house, but weighs darn near as much when loaded. A better shoulder strap system (and making the pack jumpable) would earn it 5 stars.

the bag is awesome and compatible easy to carry n durability

Excellent backpack

I shopped around for a good backpack for several months and decided on the Rush72. My previous pack was not quite big enough for me but it came with a NIJ IIIA insert. I teach in a university nursing program and hospitals with undergraduate nursing students. All of the locations I work at do not allow concealed carry so I like to have an added layer of protection. I decided to purchase this pack along with a 12”x18” level IIIA ballistic insert from Tuffy packs. The insert has a curved top that allows it to fit perfectly innthe hydration compartment. The insert is black so if you unzip the compartment you cannont tell it is even there. I use the admin pouch to house a blow out kit with a few tourniquets, hemostatic guaze, etc. The main compartment will easily carry everything I need for work. Since I have the first aid kit and ballistic insert I never leave the bag at home and carry it every day. With everything I carry including a couple of water bottles the pack will weigh up to 35-40 pounds somedays. It is comfortable to carry and the adjustable chest strap keeps the shoulder straps where they should be. If you are looking for a good daily carry backpack this is it.

Tough, rugged pack.

I bought this pack 6 years ago. Im a police officer in the UK and have used this for a few different roles in my career. I still use the same one I bought 6 years ago and it's had some serious abuse in all weathers. It's now packed to the brim with ARV equipment and the bag is still in great condition. If you want a bag that looks good, lasts and performs under stress of weight then don't hesitate on this one. I'm now buying a second because I want one to use whilst out riding my motorbike.

Most functional

Without a doubt, has been one of the best bags I have ever owned. I have had mine for nearly two years, used and abused, it holds up very well.

Rush 72 BEST EVER Backpack

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Cesar Paz USA


More pockets, zippers and straps than you will ever need. Excellent design, comfortable, durable, practical whether you take it to the gun range, down range, on your Harley or on a plane. Highly recommended.

Best Pack ever

 Rated 4.0 stars

From dan


I have been around the world twice with the Rush 72 Backpack. It has spaces and pockets to keep everything accessible and organized while being very durable. Not do I travel with it I also use it everyday in a desert environment.
My only complaint is that you cannot secure the zipper compartment with a luggage lock like I have been able to with other packs I have used. If 5.11 could do that on future packs it would be a 5 star product.

Awesome workhorse of a pack

From Gregg


Just finished a trip to Glacier National Park. This pack carried everything I needed to carry on the plane, and was an excellent pack for hiking the trails. Very comfortable and built to last. One other hiker commented "you really don't need that much pack for a day hike." LOL...it served me well.

Bad Ass Pack

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Brian


I've owned this pack in Multicam for about a year and have traveled around the world with it. I originally purchased it for hiking, hunting, and recreation. It now serves as my primary pack/luggage for everything. It is so comfortable I don't tire like I did with other packs. Some say all the pockets and zipper compartments make it confusing... ppft! Everything is organized, and getting to what you need is simple - no digging around for things. I also have the Moab 10 and like it attached to the 72. It is a lot of pack this way, but works very well as a companion bag. I will be buying this pack again for family and friends. Keep up the good work 5.11.
