Most existing backpacks practically do not have or have in small quantities small pockets and pockets for various small things. From here I have a need to purchase RUSH 72 Backpack. Tired of looking for various small things in the backpack that existed at that time.
Tactical backpack RUSH 72 Backpack from 5.11, a brief description and an overview.
And this small thing always gets me a pretty decent amount, which always turned out to be at the bottom of my pockets, and for this I had to turn the entire backpack upside down. Accordingly, time was wasted, especially on short breaks, and of course there was no talk of any neat packing of things..
In addition, it did not suit that the tent, sleeping bag and rug, on the backpack existing at that time, had to be hung from the outside, this significantly increased the external dimensions of the backpack and sometimes interfered with traveling in a dense forest. In the end, I needed a backpack that without any problems would allow me to put the things I need inside and go for 5-7 days in the summer and 3-5 days in the winter, taking into account my weight requirements of a maximum of 21-22 kg.

RUSH 72 Backpack Tactical Backpack History.
The USH special operations veteran Kyle E. Lamb, who directly participated in operations in Mogadishu, Somalia (Blackhawk Down film) and Iraq, took part in the development of the RUSH 72 Backpack. He is currently the owner of Viking Tactic, Inc. (VTAC), a company that specializes in shooting training and tactical training from the experience of small and local wars.
The general internal structure of the tactical backpack RUSH 72 Backpack.
The main compartment of the RUSH 72 backpack measuring 53 x 34 x 20 cm has a volume of 36 liters. On the back, the compartment is equipped with one mesh pocket with a zipper and one pocket with a screed. On the front panel there are two mesh, one of them through, and one closed pocket with a zipper. I use for packing clothes, dishes, products. Big things I put directly into the volume itself between the compartments.
Using the RUSH 72 Backpack Tactical Backpack.
The space between the front wall of the main internal compartment and the large patch pocket RUSH 72 Backpack allows you to pack there, without the need for hanging from the outside, for example, an awning of such a tent 2 + 1. Arcs and pegs lie in one of the side pockets. It turns out very convenient and practical..
To ensure the safety of things and to exclude the possibility of their loss, with this method of packaging, a safety net is provided at the bottom between the departments of the backpack. When using an ordinary rug and tent assembly, this option of fastening-packing is also possible..
If there is not enough space and additional volume is needed, then on RUSH 72 there is always the opportunity to suspend something additional. For example, a five-liter bag on the rear body kit of the MOLLE type, and additionally increase the volume of the backpack. Or just fasten extra things on top. Like here for example.
Special opinion on the tactical backpack 5.11 RUSH 72 Backpack.
In conclusion, I would like to say that no matter how tactical the 5.11 RUSH 72 Backpack backpack was functional and comfortable in terms of carrying and placing things, it can never fully replace a normal tourist backpack. This applies mainly to the design of the back, hanging straps, external proportions and the deadweight of the backpack. Yes, it is low and practically does not go beyond the dimensions of the shoulders and back, in some cases it is very convenient and has its advantages.
But due to this, it is wider in depth. The photo below shows how far behind this 47 liter backpack goes compared to an 80 liter tourist backpack..
