    Sized for a three-day excursion, the 5.11 Tactical RUSH 72 Backpacks is loaded with the features operators need and want. Designed by special operations combat veteran, Kyle Lamb of VTAC, these backpacks come with two large compartments and a compression strap system that allows expandability depending upon how much gear you carry. The front section of the pack includes an organizer panel with two zippered mesh compartments; a large zippered pocket, a key fob and radio/magazine pockets with hook and loop straps. The main compartment has three mesh zippered pockets and a separate large cinch pocket. There are two full-length side pockets that can handle a variety of different items including large water bottles. The top of the backpacke has a separate fleece lined eyeglass pocket and a smaller external zippered gear pocket. 5.11 Tactical added molle-compatible webbing to the front and side of the pack, allowing you to attach a host of different 5.11’s SlickStick™ accessory pouches. The padded shoulder straps also have molle-compatible webbing along with an adjustable sternum strap. The padded waist straps can be stowed away in hidden pockets and the padded back allows ventilation for those long hikes. 5.11 Tactical also included a reinforced hydration pocket that allows you to add a hydration bladder for immediate access to water. 5.11 finished the pack off with a heavy-duty, nylon carry handle at the top.


    Constructed of water-resistant 1050-denier nylon, this pack is built to last. We use quality YKK® zippers throughout and our high-impact plastic clips remain stable in all temperatures. 5.11 added elastic keepers to secure the ends of all straps. Once you’ve got the pack adjusted to your size, you’ll be able to secure the ends of all straps with these elastic keepers.


    5.11 Tactical has joined forces with Special Operations Combat Veteran (RET) Kyle E. Lamb. He served his country for 21 years, 17 of which were with the most elite elements of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

The Slickstick™ slides through a UV-resistant ring making it easier to arrange and attach your pouches and other gear. Slickstick attaches like a normal molle attachment, but it slides to make it easier. To remove an item, just pop the snap and pull the stick out.

    Customer reviews for the 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 Backpack

    Excellent buy!

    "I really hate to give a product 5 stars in every category, but this backpack rates them, at least for me.

    I've been humping stuff around various places in Afghanistan for a number of months now, and this backpack has stood up to the abuse so far. The primary things important to me are durability and functionality. Will the straps start to rip off if I cram this thing as full as I possibly can? Not so far. And its amazing how much stuff can fit in all the pockets. Agree with the comments about needing more external connection points, and maybe some more internal ones as well.

    At first I was a bit put off by the weight of the pack, but given how much much it can hold and how durable it is, I can understand why. The hip straps really help distribute the load.

    Tip: there is a thin pocket that runs the full length of the pack, sitting just behind the wearer's back. Its easy to miss."



    "First off, let me say this bag is leaps and bounds beyond anything within $100 of it's cost. DBT makes a similar bag at the tune of $375, it's not any better. I purchased this bag to replace my torn 3-day bag from a competitor (the fifth such replacement from as many different manufacturers). In several trips as a civilian PSD Medic to Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Haiti, I have gone through countless medical bags. Being a civilian, I have had not only the benefit of being allowed to choose whatever equipment I favor but having a reasonable budget to get what I want. I use a CamelBak - MedBak insert that fits perfectly in this pack. There is also room for items that are ordinarily a problem to pack (C-collars, E&E kit, extra magazines, Etc.). What I appreciate most of all is the diversity of zippered pouch configuration. This allows me to set up each compartment how I wish with less of a need to attach pouches to the outside. I would have likes more loop fastener surfaces but that being my only complaint, it's a good bag!"

    This pack exceeds my expectation.
    A most thought out design. Just one thing wrong, see below.
    The only flaw for me is that I would like the main pack to separate from the front pack. A zipper would have been nice.

    Love the new color "STORM"
    March 24, 2015
    The new color has been great in hiking in the forest, mountains or desert. This is a color that blends in any terrain. I have used the Multi Cam colors in the past and they have been great. Lots of heavy use and 4 long years. I only had one area needed sewn ( in the shoulder straps). I think the new design shoulder straps will be better. I will be using the 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 in the spring during a month long hike. I will find how it works. I would like to ask the 5.11 company if they will ever make a rain cover for your larger packs.
    High quality 5.11 packs and all the new designs of the new 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 is very good. The sipper covers, pull ties, and shoulder strap.
    Need rain cover for the same color without large 5.11 tag on back. Small like on the 5.11 tag at bottom of the admin pocket.

    Rugged, Excellent Organization, Perfect GHB/BOB
    February 25, 2015
    Love the Rush 72. Excellent storage and organization potential. Combined with a MOAB 10 bag and you have enough storage to handle any type situation. I've been using a SPEC OPS brand Ultimate T.H.E pack. While it's an excellent pack, it lacks the organization and aluminum stay of the Rush 72. Right now my vote goes to the 5.11 Rush 72. Great deal while on sale. Originally bought the Sandstone, but exchanged to the Storm Grey. The grey actually adopts to the shades of the area you're carrying it. I like that feature. Gray Man, for sure.

    Solid construction, decent ergonomics, not a long range pack.
    February 18, 2015
    I use it as an EDC pack for work, carrying equipment, food, and a jacket. Works great for that purpose. I wouldn't call it a three day bag however. Yes it has the volume, but if you load the bag up with 40+ lbs of gear it isn't ask good as a true hiking pack with a frame. The yoke system makes its durable but it also cuts into the side of your neck/traps when the bag is sinched up. I'm also a bit disappointed with the color. I purchased the sandstone, but the bag is actually quite a bit greener of a color than the picture. It's also 'two tone', the bag is a greenish color while the MOLLE webbing is more of a khaki brown color. I like the bag, just wish the pictured color was more accurate.
    Construction/durability Solid zippers Volume
    Yoke system doesn't fit larger necks/shoulders Sandstone color is inaccurately shown in the picture (more green than sandstone)

    another solid bag
    August 31, 2014
    Bought this for camping/hiking and carry-on travel in place of a kelty redwing 50 (m/l) since the kelty is over the magical 45 linear inches...this bag is spot-on for that requirement and should be a great bag for travel up to a week (depending on season).

    The picture of the Sandstone color appears to be the latest model (molle on bottom, larger patch area, logo on molle, etc...), are all of the other colors the new model as well?
    on December 2, 2012

    The only difference these packs have are the larger patch area. The Sandstone picture looks different because the Sandstone pack appears to be full and the other colors are flat.

    Recently purchased a triab 12 ash black color for my son and he loves it-and now it's dads turn. Thinking about getting the rush 24 or 72 and the Moab 10 and was wondering how they piggyback or attach so as to cover both long trips and short day trips?
    on March 10, 2013

    In order to properly attach the MOAB 10 to either the Rush 24 or Rush 72, you will need to purchase the Rush Tier System which can be found here: http://www.lapolicegear.com/511-rush-tier-system.html. Those will enable you to securely attach the 4 buckles on the MOAB 10 to the larger Rush packs.

    What size hydration bladder is recommended for the Rush 72 pack?
    on April 10, 2013

    The CamelBak Long-Neck Reservoir fits nicely in this 5.11 Rush Bag. You can find it here: http://www.lapolicegear.com/casthyexfisc.html. Choose part number 90392.
