5.11 Rush 24 Pack: 1 Year Later

As a freelance writer for numerous magazines, I receive a handful of items for review. Last spring a batch of 5.11 products arrived including their RUSH24 Backpack. After using this as my primary pack for countless survival courses, personal treks, and air travel I can say that this is a beast and holds up like few other pieces of gear I own.

With my height of 6’, I find the neck yoke and shoulder strap width comfy. There’s a wrap-around web platform which is MOLLE  compatible and allows ample space to attach my survival kit and a small medical pouch on the front panel. The size is a little too big for short dayhikes but ideal for 2-3 day treks for my needs. The company states that it is a 2000 cubic inch pack (33 liters) but that is only for the main compartment. Add in the multiple side and front pockets and you greatly increase the carrying capacity.

I made the mistake of leaving my pack outside my shelter one night in the desert and a packrat chewed through the shoulder strap. I’ve jerry-rigged the webbing for the past month but will have to look into replacing this soon.
