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.
The padded 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.
