I ride my bicycle to work everyday and I was just about to give up on this bag because it would always slide to the front of my body while cycling. Then I realized that the included tier straps could be used as a waist belt to stabilize the pack and keep it snug on my back by attaching two of them to the side molle and connecting them across my stomach. Since then I have loved this pack. It's small but you can really overload it when needed. I have stuffed it with a 6-pack and a sweater in the main compartment and had all my EDC things in the front admin pocket. It handles the rain nicely and has kept my stuff dry. I could not be happier with my purchase.
Great bag. I use it along with my Rush backpacks as an attachment to accommodate additional loads.
I ordered this as an everyday bag, and I both love it & hate it. The bag is very organized & can carry a lot, but it can get over-loaded and I find the strap awkward. It gets heavy enough that it really hurts my shoulder; I think you should have the option of being able to wear it on one shoulder rather than cross body. I would like to see a bag the size of the Moab 10 with two straps-make it a small backpack for everday use
I purchased the MOAB 6 from Sheares Technologies Pte Ltd, a 5.11 Authorised Dealer in Singapore.
I can confirm that the MOAB 6 (Style #56963) comes with the Rush Tier System Straps which is packed in the back compartment. This makes it a better deal as you do not need to purchase the Rush Tier System Straps separately.
The MOAB 6 sling bag is the perfect size for situations when a backpack is not practical to bring along. The interior design layout of the MOAB 6 almost the same as the RUSH12 backpack, just smaller in size. The size of the MOAB6 is similar to the size of the front Admin Panel of the RUSH12 backpack, although the dimensions differs. So yes, it looks square and boxy in shape when filled.
The built quality is as good as any of the Rush backpacks, very solid and durable with quality stitching all around.
The MOAB 6 can fit in a 27oz (800ml) Klean Kanteen bottle or a 32oz (1 Liter) Nalgene Water Bottle, a compact umbrella, etc... with plenty of room left.
Highly recommended for a everyday carry sling bag.
I thought it actually came with the tiers. When it arrived I thought it was defective because it didn't have the connectors. Had to buy them separately. Now I wait to see if it works.
I've taken this bag from the rain forest it Puerto Rico to the jungle of NYC and it has never failed me. This is a great way to expand your EDC and carry my G17. It is small enough that you can't really overload it and big enough to carry all the practical EDC you want and some tier 1 emergency gear. I love the hidden pistol compartment but wish it was a bit larger for my G17 and a spare mag. I make it work though. The bag shines when I slap it on my RUSH 12 Get-Home bag and truck them together down the road. They latch together quickly and it's a solid connection. Love the two as a system.
MOAB 6 sliding can be easily fixed by adding WOMEN'S 1.25" KELLA BELT or Athena 1.25 inch belt to the opposite lower buckle. I prefer the Athena belt, since it has the velcro secure attachment. Also, make sure to choose the correct waist size to accomodate for clothing, such as a jacket.
Picked up a sandstone 5.11 MOAB 6 at Academy and have used it now for about 6 weeks and it is outstanding. Holds all my range gear, including two full-size pistols. Extremely well made and durable. Will last me a very long time. I was skeptical about the carry strap after reading a few reviews, but it is outstanding to carry over one shoulder. Attached a small MOLLE bag to carry 250 rounds of 9mm and am extremely impressed with the zippers and just how much I can cram into this thing. Easily a 5-star bag.
I bought this bag at Gander Mtn last week and use it to carry my SLR camera, an extra lens and a small conceal carry revolver. This isn't too much weight but the strap configuration allows the bag to pull away from my back. Now perhaps I'm not rigging it properly. It would be helpful if the 3x3 cardboard tag attached to the new bag showed a little sketch of a human torso with the bag in the carry configuration. Otherwise, I really like the bag.
Water in a lite rain was inside the bag in less than 10 mins. The seams let water in and the Velcro area for the gun as shown in the video has no way to let water out. Additional, water that runs off the rest of the bag travels right into the gun area.
