Sized for a three-day excursion, the 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 backpack has a separate fleece lined
eyeglass pocket and a smaller external zippered gear pocket. We’ve 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.
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. We’ve also included a
reinforced hydration pocket that allows you to add a hydration bladder for
immediate access to water. We 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. We’ve 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.
