Web platform on the outside of the compartment allows you to add 5.11’s SlickStickTM pouches for even more gear capacity and the 2" x 3" VELCRO® brand patch is great for flag or unit patches.
The 5"H x 8"W zippered pocket above the Admin compartment is a handy spot for radio, phone, travel documents, energy bars, and smaller gear and is also covered with web platform and a VELCRO® brand patch for your nametape.
Two compression straps keep everything closer to your body for comfortable load management. 511 tucked zippered fleece-lined eyewear pocket on top, just behind the heavy-duty grab handle.
Dual concealed hydration tube ports are located to the sides of the handle. Both sides feature top-to-bottom web platform, allowing you to attach a host of different 5.11’s SlickStickTM accessories. The back panel conceals a reinforced hydration pocket that will accommodate bladders up to 60 oz.
The extra padding on the back panel promotes ventilation and the anti-skid pads help keep the RUSH 12™ in place. Tri-glide fasteners at the bottom corners in case a waist belt is added. The padded contoured shoulder straps have four rows of web platform and the sternum strap can be adjusted to four heights. Excess webbing can be gathered at the bottom of the straps with elastic keepers.
Two 3/8" grommets in the bottom panel let the RUSH 12™ breathe and allow water and debris to escape. There are four attachment points for 1" webbing to the bottom. Constructed of water-resistant 1050-denier nylon, the RUSH 12™ Backpack will go the distance!
5.11 uses self-repairing YKK® nylon coil zippers throughout and high-impact plastic side release buckles, tri-glide fasteners, and other hardware are not affected by differences in climate. Metal grommets and zipper sliders are coated to match the pack and for resistance to corrosion.
