Durable material. Lots of space. Lots of organization. Very comfortable with almost 30lbs. of gear, and remains so over distance.

We'received using it as a family (of 5) hI king backpack right now because our children are only 4 and twin 2.5 year olds. It holds everything and distribute's the weight well, however, I wouldn't be able to haul it around by myself. But it absolutely holds everything.
ProsMassive. Lots of pockets.
ConsThe main large compartment gets 'crushed' in from the outer pockets and makes it frustrating to put anything in/take out sometimes. Maybe we're just not packing it correctly.

Great bag for duty or camping. Added the rifle carrier and it makes a great loaded bailout backpack.

One Big Bag
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.
ProsWell-built with durable materials
ConsBig zippered compartment needs a large padded divider. Main compartment needs to be zippered to prevent things from falling out.

I had the smaller version of this bag for work, I purchased this bag for travel and I love it. very well built with enough room for everything I need for travel.

Great Carry On
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.

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.
ProsHUGE capacity, tons of compartments, very comfortable, awesome quality, holds everything you could need and more!
ConsLittle big for a smaller person, not very covert or subtle looking...

Love this Pack
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.

I recently read a review on this bag that stated after enduring a decent rainfall during a hiking trip, the bag ended up shrinking a lot. Is it possible for the bag to shrink?? And if it does shrink too much is that covered under warranty?
We have not heard of this issue before. This bag should not shrink since it is NOT made from 100% cotton.

March 23, 2015
What are the dimensions of the admin pocket? Would it fit a standard spiral notebook (8.5x11in)? A small (1") 8.5x11in binder?
If you're referring to the outermost pouch and the inner admin area accessible by opening the zippers, the inside dimension is approx. 12" wide by 14-3/4" high. It has plenty of room to fit a letter size (8.5" x 11") binder or tablets/folders. You can even get away with a legal sized folder but would be borderline squeeze to close the zippers.

Yes a spiral 8 1/2 x 11 or a 1 inch 3 ring binder

from Converse, Tx
Yes the pockets in Rush 72 are big enough for the binder. If you want it for school you should consider the 5.11 Rush12. Is a bit smaller but still has plenty of room.

5.11 specifications for the admin pocket are 15.5" x 11.5" x 2". And yes, a standard spiral notebook (8.5 x 11) and small 1" binder (8.5 x 11) will fit.

which color is closer traditional coyote... sandstone or flat dark earth? the FDE gear i've seen from other companies does not look like what's shown in the options for this bag
Flat dark earth. The color is a bit darker brown with less green.
on September 12, 2014
from Orlando, FL
If I'm understanding you correctly, it depends on if you want to compare to coyote brown or coyote tan. Sandstone is lighter and more khaki-like (ie: tan). FDE is darker and more brown. If you don't have a local cop-shop to compare to IRL, why not order both and send back the one that doesn't match. Or, you can probably give 5.11 a call as they probably get asked this question pretty often.

i have a much cheaper ruck that i tend to use 1-shouldered (unless i'm actually rucking)... the foam in the left strap is almost entirely gone... has anyone experienced this at all with this Rush 72 pack??? thanks.
After a couple months of daily use, carrying the pack at near capacity, i have had zero issues with padding breaking down/shifting. I previously carried a Rush 24, for about three years daily, nearly at full capacity, and had zero issues with the shoulder strap padding there either. Overall quality of these packs has been great, and i would recommend them to anyone looking for durability, functionality, and comfort. Great packs!

I have the Rush 72 & 12. They're great high quality bags. I've put both through hell and they still look almost new. The straps are very comfortable and thick. I haven't noted any wear on the straps and they're still as comfortable as day one.

from Middleboro, MA
I've had the 72 hour rush for about 4 months now. I also bought it due to the fact my last bag's shoulder strap tore out because I also only use 1 strap. 5.11 makes great products and you really get what you pay for. What I really like about the bag is the straps come together up top then are sown into the bag giving it extra support.

Will this bag pass for carry-on luggage for Airlines?
No but the Moab 10 From 511 would
on September 28, 2013
Double check the measurements that YOUR airline shows for maximum carry on size. This bag will compress into smaller spaces, like any other soft luggage. It is HUGE if you fill it up, but if it's only partially full you may make the airline's dimensions requirement. Personally, if I needed to fill mine all the way up, I'd need to be checking a bag, anyways.

from Cleveland, TN
Yes it does work as carry on. It fits in the overhead of a Q400 with what I pack in it. If it is full then that could be a problem though. I travel on a 747 every month for work and it fits in the overhead just fine with plenty of room and would probably fit if it was full as well.

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?
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.
on March 10, 2013
The moab bags come with a tier system. I've bought three, two 10s and a six, and they all came with the tier system.

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?
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.
on December 2, 2012
Patch size is not the only difference....there are many..but I think the most important would be the change to the yoke system..they went to a 3 piece design versus the older 2 piece design which was prone to ripping at the seam with heavy/hard use....the newer design has 2 seams on the shoulder straps on above each shoulder as opposed to the old style which only had the one right in the middle .
