5.11 Rush 72 Tactical Backpack Review:
This 5.11 Rush 72 Tactical Backpack is everything you would want in a large, tough and comfortable backpack. The nylon material is almost indestructible and the room inside is plenty big enough for a 72-hour ruck.
The backpack comes highly recommended by people from the forces…and they should know a thing or two about quality and durability!
There are plenty of pockets and compartments including a padded hydration pack compartment. With lots of loops and strong zippers, it makes this a fantastic choice for any long/medium overnight hike.
The backpack is STRONG with the top handle capable of withstanding 2,000lbs of carry.
The one problem that has been flagged is it’s tendency to roll forward when the pack is set down on the floor, but if that’s the only gripe we feel the 5.11 Rush 72 Tactical Backpack is great value for money, even though it comes in at over the $200 mark.
For those 2 small negs (floor balance and price) we award it a 4.55 out of 5 and see this as one of the best large backpacks on the market today.
