stupid stuff-it area
I'm not sure how those things became popular. I get into my bag 100 times more than I need to shove a shirt in between sections of the bag. I don't like needing to unclog the two straps every time I need in my bag. Pockets are too tight to put any real gear in. Compartments are ok. Orange.... I wish they would have every compartment like that. Molle in the compartments...cool. I like the pack. But, a couple things make me wonder if airsofters are running the product development.

Great Tactical Trauma Bag
I use this for EMS services. I was a little wary about it being a tactical backpack, but the diverse pockets and molle attachment spots make this an amazing pack. This currently carries all of my trauma gear to respond to patients; SAM splints, bleeding control, airway management, etc.
ProsYou get what you pay for.
ConsMain pocket zippers feel kind of low quality. Hard to grip if your hands are cold/wet. Looks like 5.11's own design. But it's only one compartment that has these zippers.

Great sturdy and heavy duty bag, unfortunately too small to use as my go bag. Fits the helmet, but not a helmet with a riot mask.
ProsSturdy and solid bag
ConsNot big enough for all my items

Smaller than what I needed
The bag itself is great but what I needed it for was a everyday patrol bag and it didn't fit my med gear extra clothes computer and extra ammo very well
ProsVery well built and made
ConsJust to small of a pack for me

All Hazards review
Overall, my opinion is that this is another solid pack from 5.11, however, the compartment for the camelback seem to be a little small due the overall pack size. My water bladder, while one of the largest, doesn't seem to have enough length. Another 2-3" would of done the trick. That and some pockets in which to secure AR and handgun magazines would of made this a sold 5 star pack.
ConsCamelback area too small. No where to secure rifle/hand gun magazines Overall length is too short. Bo everyone is 5'10"

Great surprise for EDC!
I've tried more packs/slingbags for my EDC ( Every Day Carry ) items. Many fit on me by way of belt & pockets. I've then had my extra emergency/first aid/spare tactical items that I could fit in a Maxpedition jumbo versipack with the shoulder strap over my head. I'm disabled and require a cane to walk. I'm limited to how much weight I can carry as well. Everything has been too big or too small or if you're able to find a smaller pack, it lacks flexibility & comfort! Finally I came across the 5.11 Tactical All Hazards Nitro Pack. The reviews were helpful, but still left me a little concerned that it would be too small, especially for the price of $129.95! I had done my research and one day I got a couple of my online suppliers that there was a 20% off sale on 5.11 gear. Each of the sites had the same price & 1 included free shipping, but L.A. Police Gear offered a ball cap w/ a loop patch on the front, a sharp limited edition single hand opening liner locked pocket knife and as always, lapolicegear shipping fee for only $2.99. I also ordered a Maxpedition rollypolly that a photographer had mentioned in her review. It's the perfect size to mount on the side loops & when unrolled fits a 1 liter bottle with ease. Upon arrival I was ecstatic! The thick mesh padding on the shoulder straps and back panel are superior to any other pack I've owned or seen. The pack has just the right amount of flexibility to it so that I can carry my full size M&P 40 with a light/laser combo attached & it easily fits just behind the back padding & the zippers allow for you to access it from either side. On top is a solid grab handle as well as a large eyeglass/sunglass storage pocket that my hard sided Wiley X Tactical sunglass case fits in with room to spare. The first main compartment is big enough for me to fit my Condor VA7-003 Pack Insert Travel Medic Kit Tote to slide right in & now I'm able to carry a serious Medic Kit & not have to choose to carry a small kit with me & leave the rest behind in my truck. The 2nd large compartment is lined with molle loops & there I have molle strap backed mag pouches & other storage pouches containing emergency/survival items. Please don't get me wrong. This is by no means a bug out bag! The old Eagle Scout in me just believes in being prepared! These storage pouches can easily be removed & a change of clothes & toiletries inserted for a 1 or 2 day trip. The outer compartment is more of an admin pouch. Great for pens, flashlights, wallet, keys, etc. Between this outer compartment & the 2nd compartment is an open pouch or papous type section that you can shove a jacket into or tailored to my needs, being disabled, I am now able to fold my Temperpidic foam seat cushion in half & shove it in this adjustable void and then firm the upper portion of the pack to secure my cushion using the adjustable compression straps. Finally I can carry what I feel I need while being balanced by having a very comfortably padded double strap pack & walk out of the house unassisted! I've got my can supporting me in one hand & I can grab my keys with the other hand to lock the house or unlock my truck. I've got my security for myself and those around me & it feels great! The icing on the cake is that the outside of the pack also has loop panels sewn on to it. Why does that matter? For myself, I've picked up some patches along the way. One velcro panel has my name on it. Another is the Sheepdog patch which is why I need the pack. Another is a patch with my blood type on it. At last, but most important, are 2 patches of our AMERICAN FLAG... 1 for my pack & the other is for the beautiful ball cap that L.A. Police Gear provided for free to it's customers! That's one of many reasons that they get my money instead of others! I hope this helps in your decision of what to buy & where to buy it from! GOD BLESS AMERICA & THOSE THAT SERVE & PROTECT US EVERY DAY!!!

Never disappointed with 5.11
I purchased this because I was looking for a nice EDC backpack and this was a perfect fit. Its a smaller pack but has plenty of organization for all of your needs. Where this backpack really hits the nail on the head is all the fine details 5.11 put into it. from the compression straps to the pocket designs, this pack is a winner.
Pros-small but plenty of room -hydration compatible -bands to tie up loose annoying straps -high quality build -comfortable -plenty of room for customization -amazing ventilation for your back

Just what i was looking for.
I bought it for travel and so far it has kept all the item I need plus a set of clothes perfectly in place. It doesn't take up as much space as my Rush 24. I'm very happy.
ProsSize, compartments, quality
ConsNone for me so far

Primary Use as a Camera Backpack
I purchased the All Hazards Nitro as a replacement to my camera backpack. I wanted a backpack that was not dedicated to camera equipment and would allow for the attachment of pouches as needed. I thought I was set on the Rush 12, but I changed my mind at the last moment because I decided I'd rather have a primary and secondary compartment rather than one large compartment. Rather than the padded divider system typical to most camera bags, I purchased individual padded lens cases. Yes, changing lenses is a little slower, but not much. I just got back from my first trip with the pack. I went to Savannah, Tybee Island, Disney World, and the head waters of the Everglades. The backpack was exposed to sun, rain, and sand while being used in the city, in restaurants, bars, at the beach, hotels, amusement parks, and the swamp. The pack exceeded my expectations. I carried it every day, covered many miles, and with the very well padded straps, it was always comfortable on my back. I added a CapturePro camera clip to the left strap so I could easily access my camera and not have to dig it out of the pack whenever I wanted a pic. I added a Maxpedition pouch that fit my iPhone 5 on the right strap. I used a tactie and removed it at times when I didn't need it. In the main compartment I kept four additional lenses and my Nikon D5100 with a gps in the hot shoe. I didn't do anything special to protect the camera, I felt between the padded lens cases it sat on and the ruggedness of the pack, it would be fine and it was. The secondary compartment at times held two flashes, sunscreen, snacks, drinks, occasionally my Benro Mefoto tripod, and things that were acquired during my travels. The sunglass pouch, held my sunglasses! The beavertail/stuff-it pouch came in very handy and held a large set of Nikon binoculars at times, bottles, and a bunch of other misc items. The smaller compartments held keys, cables, flashlight, extra camera batteries, flash batteries, multi-tool, camera cleaning supplies, remotes, memory cards, and a few other accessories. I tried to minimize my load and only carry what I thought I'd need when I was out, leaving things behind at the hotel. The pack was fully loaded when I was going from one hotel to another and handled a heavy load great. I added a Maxpedition Mini-Rollypolly to each side of the pack. On the side with the velcro attachment strap, I typically carried my tripod. The other Rollypolly was usually used for bottled water. I never put anything in the hydration pouch. The compression straps need to be released in order to fully access the primary and secondary compartments, but its really quick. I could pull my camera out without releasing them though since it sat on the top. I added a female buckle to one of the compression straps, so if I don't want to connect them normally and have quicker access to the two large compartments, I can connect the other compression strap to the female buckle I added and the beavertail pocket will not flop down. I also added 1/2" side buckles to the bottom grab handles of the pack, the other end I have going through the drain holes of the rollpollies, so when I un-roll them, I can connect the small buckles and the rollypollies will not move much at all since they are really only connected by the tac-tie on the upper portion of the pouch. I'm very pleased with the All Hazards Nitro, it was the size I was looking for. Its not huge, but holds a lot. Its very durable and well thought out. I got the sandstone color which matches the Maxpedition khaki perfectly. I take this pack with me every day and can't wait to use it on many more trips and adventures.
ProsDurable, High Quality Construction, Well Engineered, Adaptable

Better than expected
I bought this bag for dismount ops in the desert, and wanted something that was too big and could wear with a plate carrier. In my opinion 5.11 pulled out all the stops on this bag. I wasn't fond of the layout of the Rush series of bags, and was hesitant to buy this one. Glad I did. The tear away IFAK pouch is a plus and comes in handy. The interior lay out of the bag suits my needs well and I don't have any complaints.
ProsIFAK pouch. Design and layout of compartments. Sturdy materials. Rugged build.

typical tough 511 materials and construction. plenty of pockets and a nice day pack. will carry a pair of shoes and change of clothes. if my math is right it adds up to about 1120+ cu. in of space and the bladder pocket fits about a 2 qt hydro bladder. so all in all not too bad. the double tap color is a dark gunmetal but pretty hip. so i say it's a day pack and my expectations aren't too high. we'll see how things go over the next few months of travel and abuse. hope this helps as i couldn't find anywhere the specs on this thing so i bought it in the blind hoping for the best.

Would the exterior helmet compartment be able to accommodate a full motorcycle helmet?
Unfortunately this pack probably won't hold a motorcycle helmet very well in the stuff panel. It's an excellent pack and I use mine daily. It could support the weight of a helmet but not hold the helmet very well. Hope that helps.

What are the dimensions of the the two main pouches?
The dimensions are kind of odd and this is what i was able to gather from the two main compartments - Main Compartment - 15" Length x 10" Width x 2.5" Depth Secondary Compartment - 17" Length x 9.5" width x 2.75" Depth I know that seems odd, and i could have some error with my measurements, but we'll check with other customers to confirm.

Where do we get a waist strap for this pack? It has the attachment points for one, but what size strap fits through them? Does 5.11 Tactical make a waist strap with buckles specifically for this bag and the All Hazards Prime? I can't seem to find it on their website.
Unfortunately 5.11 does not make or sell a waist strap that will fit this pack.

August 11, 2014
Is this pack hydration compatible? If so, what size reservoir bladder would fit?
Yes and no. The back section, that would be the pocket that is closest to your back when wearing, has both a loop and toggles to accommodate a hydration bladder. However, there is no pass through for the tube. This section has 2 independent zippers, so it would be very easy to feed the tube through the main opening and zip it closed around it, although the chances of dirt, sand, or whatever getting in are greater. As far as size, it would depend on the brand and model of bladder you have. It would need to be short and squat. Something like a CamelBak Antidote 70 oz. would work fine. Hydration compatibility is my only complaint about this bag. Personally, I just purchased a water bottle pouch and mounted it to the side via Molle. Overall, this is an excellent pack, but it's very small. If you're wanting something for EDC purposes, it's great. But if you're looking for something substantial I would look towards it's bigger brother, the All Hazards Prime. Same pack, but on a larger scale.

With all compartments filled out (but beavertail area empty) how deep is the bag? i.e. how far out from ones back does it extend? Certainly it must be more than the 4.5" listed in the description; the 2-wide side webbing alone takes up at least 3".
Unfilled approx. 4-5 inches . It gets about 6 inches with cargo area filled,l Depending on contents. I use it a bailout bag, with tac helmet and gas mask attached to the outside.

My loaded out bag with the stash pocket/beaver tail empty extends from my back at the bottom of the pack 12 inches. It extends less at the top because of the shape and compression straps. The given dimensions are misleading. It is comparable in volume to the Rush 12 in my opinion with the nitro being deeper but not as wide and more versatile in design. I added molle pouches to the sidesfor extra volume. It's exactly what I was looking for.
on May 12, 2014
from Denver, CO
It's difficult to measure exactly, but if you stuff all the pockets the bag expands to 11 - 12" easily. The other measurement sounds accurate for an empty bag.
on May 12, 2014
from Golden, CO
The bag is roughly 18 inches deep. I carried 650 rounds of ammo, 3 pistols, mags, and ear and eye pro comfortably. It stuck out about 7 to 8 inches with the main compartments and beaver tail loaded with gear. This was an impromptu range trip so the load out wasn't organized, and the bag did well. Its normal function is to haul extra water, mres, ammo, and any other operational specific gear I need. The tear away IFAk pouch is a plus and will fit all IFAk contents. unlike other brands.

I only use this bag to carry my workout clothes in, keeping my workout shoes in the beavertail area. I also used it once as a carryon bag but thought compartments were to small to carry much. There is only one mesh pocket that is atached with velcro and I wish there were more like in the other backpacks. So anything that is placed in the bigger compartments is loose.

I bought one this last winter. I just went down and measured mine for you. I'm not sure where they come up with the 4.5", mine is minimum 10.5". That's with some gear in the compartments but certainly not over loaded. Hope this helps.
