Check out our new 5.11 Tactical Rush Backpacks. If you’ve worn run of the mill, bargain backpacks your whole life, the 5.11 Rush series might surprise you. Some basic packs are just made to carry items, but 5.11 Rush Backpacks are highly engineered. 5.11 seems to have decided that one backpack shouldn’t have do it all. They offer three different sizes of the 5.11 Rush series to fit your different needs: RUSH 12, RUSH 24 and RUSH 72. Each number roughly correlates to how long you might be away with the backpack. For example, The Rush 72 is much larger than Rush 12. All of these backpacks are made from water resistant nylon. While you won’t want to submerge your Rush bag in water, it should keep you contents dry during a shower. Any child who’s had to walk to and from school knows well that it doesn’t take much rain to soak a regular backpack and it’s contents. If you've worn a backpack for any period of time you have probably met shoulder pain. It doesn’t take a terribly heavy load to strain your muscles. The Rush series of backpacks answers this problem with compression straps. You really have to wear one to see the incredible difference. The straps are heavily cushioned yet held to a stiff position that allows you better hold the weight. Check out the back view photos on the products pages to see what these straps look like. The Rush 24 and Rush 72 comes in five different patterns: Sandstone, Black, Flat Dark Earth, TAC OD, and Multicam, while the Rush 12 Comes in three different patterns: Sandstone, Black, and Multicam. The Rush family of backpacks is compatible with the 5.11’s Rush Tier System. When you see these strong straps sewn across 5.11 products, they are part of the Tier System.
