    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!"

    One Big Bag
    June 18, 2016
    Quality workmanship with more compartments than one knows what to do with. Just wish the big central compartment had a zipper rather than just held together with straps.
    Well-built with durable materials
    Big zippered compartment needs a large padded divider. Main compartment needs to be zippered to prevent things from falling out.

    Great Carry On
    April 4, 2016
    The backpack works great as a carry on, especially travelling overseas. It will barely fit in the overhead compartment of the small planes. I do like the adjustable straps on the front pocket which allow you to store a jacket or light coat instead of carrying it around in your arms. Another great feature about this backpack is the waist traps can be tucked away when not in use. Overall great purchase and highly recommend it.

    Ridiculously awesome!
    January 31, 2016
    This bag is beyond awesome I used it for my school/work bag everyday loaded down with anywhere from 25-45lbs between the 17" laptop and 4 nuclear college books, this bag was super comfortable and hasn't even lost a stitch yet! It gets tossed in my car, on the ground, scooted across the floor from time to time and still looks awesome! The break-in period is a bit of a pain, but after about a week with some substantial weight in the bag the shoulder straps soften up and it's crazy comfortable to use with any amount of weight in it. Just don't be an idiot and get the bag the day before a long trip in a big city and not break in the shoulder straps first. My shoulders and traps were super sore after the first day, but we're fine by the end of the week. I loved the first one so much I got a storm grey one for my baby bag and all the compartments and pockets make it great for that purpose too! One if my favorite features about this bag is the shove-it pouch. No matter where I'm at, if I have a jacket or just something I don't wanna hold but I don't wanna unzip the bag to put it inside, I can just toss it in there for easy access. It's also a great place to store smelly diapers too! They stay away from fresh clothes and bottles, but I don't have to hold them, and they don't stink up the inside of my bag, or worse yet...explode inside all over everything! I just can't say enough about this bag!!! I wish I could have a whole pile of them for every type of situation I would need, but having 1 that is good for a little bit of everything is pretty nice too! The one possible problem with it, is that it's pretty large. I don't think it's too big for me, but I'm 6ft and 200lbs. When my 5ft wife is wearing the grey one, she looks like a little kid. A Rush 24 or 12 would be a little better for everyday stuff, but this is the only Rush bag with the shove it pouch. The all hazards have a shove it pouch, but don't have the interior configuration of this one....if only 5.11 could breed the two and get a smaller copy of the Rush 72, and possibly make a covert version this sized, or at least make an option with less molle on the outside. I got a lot of sketchy looks from people at the airport with the solid black color loaded to the max with stuff. The only real thing you can do to help it look a little less "Black Ops" is swap out the zipper pulls with a different colored paracord. I did blue, and it looks pretty nice with a blue on black. I have neon Orange on my double tap triab that looks pretty good too.
    HUGE capacity, tons of compartments, very comfortable, awesome quality, holds everything you could need and more!
    Little big for a smaller person, not very covert or subtle looking...

    Love this Pack
    January 23, 2016
    This is a well thought out design. It's not too heavy for me (I'm over 6' and about 190) and has more than enough pockets to pretty much organize anything you need to do. Just to note I am personally using the bag for a bob but I can see the use for military or longer trekking adventures. Either way you will not be disappointed. FYI, I haven't had a chance to really run the bag through ringer, but I don't expect any problems when I do.

    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.

    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.
