Purpose Built

The MOAB™ 6 (Mobile Operation Attachment Bag) is part of the RUSH series of premium quality gear packs from 5.11 Tactical®.

The ambidextrous padded strap is fully adjustable, while a tech pocket at the shoulder holds a phone or iPod and provides pass-through access for headphones. A quick stash pocket at the rear offers covert storage, and an internal water bottle pocket helps you stay hydrated.

Great bag, BUT


From Dan


This is my second 5.11 bag. They both are made well, and they are 2nd to none. HOWEVER, I wished that there was a second chest strap to keep the bag from falling in front when I have bend down. I am always adjusting the bag.

Good size for concealed carry day bag


From John


Great sling pack for carrying just the essentials. Easily customizable for the mission at hand.

Excellent produit au quotidien


From Stiou


Purchased from COP13 in Marseille 2 years ago.

I was hesitant with the MOAB 10 but the MOAB 6 is an excellent compromise between the 2 banger and Rush 12.

It has become the bag in which I put my service gear daily

Excellent for the civilian!

The skid pads wear quickly if the bag is often heavy, but is high quality in general as expected with 5.11

Many pockets and discreet uses.

Consider switching shoulders while wearing to keep balanced.

The only negative is the strap which crosses the bag will detach itself from time to time

Always Be Ready!

Moab 6


From Edward


The Size is a little larger than I had hoped. It does not ride up against your
body when you carry it. I did a lot of
research prior to buying and only saw one bad review on YouTube and in my
case he was right it does carry poorly.

My new EDC.


From I'm a liberal!


I originally was using a Moab 10 as my EDC. It tended to be to bulky in tight situations such as riding the subway/light rail or even the bus. I switched to a Moab 6 and realized that it took to getting use to having a smaller form factor bag sitting at the small of my back and the buckle digging into my shoulder. I learned how adjust the bag to sit in such a way to where there's mninimal discomfort. when loaded down with at least 9 pounds of gear it doesn't become a pain. but when it's lightly packed is when discomfort comes into play.

I usually carry tech accessories and three 1 liter Camelbak Chute bottles (one within the main compartment, a Camelbak bottle pouch and the use of a single tier system strap from the outer pals webbing of the bottle pouch to the front webbing of the bag to hold the bottle against the pack while being held upright with a carabiner to the webbing right of the grab handle).

My only gripe is when I bend over to pick up an object from the ground. The bag has tendency to slip off my and be right in front of me. If only a secondary strap where included like the 2 banger sling bag.

Compact & Practical




I personally feel that the bag is unique mainly because of the sling. It feels a little awkward when carried around due to the sling but I'm sure I will get use to overtime. What I love about the bag is the organisation of the bag. There are a lots of compartment & that make it easy to store & organise my things.

Great product


From Murph


I love this bag and own two of them. Only thing I think 511 needs to consider is adding more color choices. I would like to see OD and multicam added to the line up. But hey, that's just me. I highly recommend this product.

Good, but needs more colour options


From Tom


Please bring it out also in TAC OD! Please!

excellent product


From mark


I use my MOAB 6 for hiking. I can carry a surprising amount of gear, food, water, small shelter, poncho etc. Very well thought out. It is bulletproof too. Play with the adjustment strap to get it just right for a comfortable sling. I put a heavy round key ring (auto) and a caribiner on the bottom of the pack and attached it to my belt in the back so as to reduce the sag....Whole different feeling. Very nice product.

Ok, but not ideal


From BHawthorne


Depending upon your use of the Rush MOAB 6, your mileage my vary. If you intend to use this as a sling bag, do not overfill it. Expect to only half fill the main compartment. I purchased the MOAB 6 as a replacement bag for my aircrew EDC for David Clark headset, knee board, ipad mini and charts. The back sleve looks to be designed exactly for an ipad mini. The main compartment is a bit awkward with the David Clarke headset but has rooms to spare. It just deforms the bag into more of an indistinct ball instead of a flat backpack when used this way though. I wish there was a way to unzip the sling top attachment and stow the sling in the back of the bag and convert the bag on the fly to just use the top handle. The sling part of the bag seems very dysfunctional if you have anymore than 50% of the bag filled. Other thoughts...I need to get a radio sleeve attachment for the side and a pen holder attachment for the front for mine. Guess that'll be my next purchases for the modular attachments.
