The overall design of the moab 10 is off the hook. However, after one year of using this pack, the lower end of shoulder trap torn apart. Then I realized that it is not reinforced with continuous stitches like the top end of the shoulder trap. Anything failed after one year is a 3 star. Hopefully, you can resolve this issue in the next generation of moab.
You will love this Pack i use for my EDC Pack has a Secret pocket for your EDC Gun.
I work 2 jobs and this pack works great. Added first pouch to side to carry my emergency seizure medications. The single cross strap with quick release is awsome. Perfect for other tools, small tablet and even a compartment for a hydration pouch. Definatly happy with this purchase,
First 5.11 makes a lot of very high quality products. Many of my tactical gears are 5.11. However, before you consider purchasing a MOAB 10, I would recommend you go into a 5.11 store and compare it to the Rush 12. The idea and concept of a sling bag is cool, but the problem is it eventually weighs on you too much on one side. During one of my trips, I found myself changing left to right side carry and back again. For long term wear, nothing beats a traditional backpack with two shoulder straps.
Well to me it seems the M.O.A.B 10 is just a sling version of a rush 12.is it not? I mean be honest with youself buy a rush 12.and a M.O.A.B 10 and you have a major interchangeable affordable bag option. The 72 is sumwhat overkill unless you a hardcore european bagpacking need.
I have owned this backpack for 3 years now and it helps me with everything. It helps with College by holding my books, pencils, notes, etc. It helps with Hiking by holding my water, food, gear, etc. It works great as a Everyday backpack as well, and it looks good especially because you can customize it with patches and other things. I even play Airsoft, and use this backpack to carry an M4 and a KMP9 along with other gear and it still manages to perform perfectly for the task.
That said don't buy this backpack if you expect to hold a ton of things. It has a surprising amount of space and organization but it still is a compact bag. Oh wait, you can just use Tier system to make it larger to fit your needs. I've seen people mention that it hurts their neck/shoulder when wearing it and I will say if you do it long enough you get used to it. Just don't expect to fill this thing to the brim with heavy gear and use it all day resting on one shoulder and not get a bit sore. You can always switch the side of the strap though.
It's hard for me to say anything bad about this backpack, and it outperforms any backpack I've owned before it. Works perfectly for whatever I need, and that's why it gets 5 stars.
I love this pack. I alternate between using it for day hikes and using it to carry around my laptop. The crazy thing is that it's perfect for both purposes. This bag is the perfect pack. You can even fit the pack for a bladder and use it like a camelback hydration pack. super cool system. The expandability of the pack is great too. I've purchased a few add ons for when I go hiking. It's great. I also love the adjustable strap and the ease of carrying this around across my shoulder. This pack is perfect.
This is a well made bag that works great to expand your EDC. I carry the 6 in the summer and the 10 in the winter. I love the pistol pocket in this one because it takes my G17 and spare mag with ease. I gave the MOAB-6 5 stars because it was great at everything I threw at it. The 10 gets 4 start because it isn't great at carrying a full capacity or attaching to other bags. I took a 5 mile hike with this bag carrying about 20-25 lbs and it was miserable. The sling dug into my shoulder and was hard to get to sit right on my body. When adding it to another bag it is super tall which denies access to the main bag and distributes the weight poorly. It does everything else I ask it to very well however so it stays in my winter rotation.
The functionality and all the features go over and beyond what I was looking for. Heavy duty and well constructed. Looks cool & bad-ass too! I bicycle commute to work and I've used the tier-straps that were included to create a sling stabilizer. So awesome!
I bought this bag as I have decided to run a lite pack and a large pack. I have been very pleased with the RUSH 72. Smooth zippers plenty of pockets. Solid bag.
The MOAB 10 however. Crappy zipper system. It literally catches on everything. Trying to open the zippers is a massive pain. This set up lacks the smoothness of the RUSH series. I most of the times have to physically tear it open because the zippers lock.
The comms pocket has not been retooled to the newer phones out on the market. I can't imagine that this would hold any kind of LE/Military comms.
I'm a larger fellow, so I can't bag to much on the cross strap though I have had other people try it and it cuts them across the throat as well.
It holds my Glock 23 just fine. But another reviewer put it right, if you max this bag out, it's functionally useless.
I might keep this as a very expensive range bag, but it's not anything like I was expecting from 511. This bag is rubbish.
