The 5.11 Tactical Rush 24 Backpack is a water-resistant rucksack with 34 litres of packing space. Touted by 5.11 as "quite simply the best tactical backpack on the market," the Rush 24 features a wide range of useful pockets and compartments, making it an ideal day or overnight pack for those of you who like to keep your kit protected and organised when on the go.

As with all 5.11 products, this bag is more than tough enough to handle the demands of outdoor use as well as urban applications. Constructed from water-resistant 1050-denier nylon, the Rush 24 was designed with the help of US Special Operations combat veteran Kyle Lamb, and has truly been created with the end user in mind. The back panel features a reinforced pocket that will accommodate hydration bladders, while concealed hydration tube ports are situated either side of a heavy-duty grab handle.

The Rush 24's various compartments make it equally suitable for professional use, thanks to a protective laptop sleeve within the main compartment, a wide-opening admin pocket on the front of the pack with sleeves for pens, business cards, a camera, GPS unit, keys and much more, along with two inner mesh pockets for computer accessories, personal electronics, and other small items that you may want readily accessible.

Extra padding on the back panel promotes ventilation while the anti-skid pads help to keep the pack in place when you're moving. The shoulder straps are padded and contoured for extra comfort, and feature a sternum strap which can be adjusted to four different heights. Tri-glide fasteners are included at the bottom of the pack allowing you to add a waist belt (not included), while two grommets in the bottom panel provide air flow to the main compartment and allow water and debris to escape.

The zippered compartment above the admin pocket is useful for storing your radio, phone, travel documents, snacks, and other small items, while a fleece-lined pocket at the top of the pack provides safe storage for eyewear. Two compression straps keep everything snugged closer to your body for comfortable load management.

Self-repairing YKK nylon coil zippers are used throughout, and the high-impact buckles, fasteners and other components are not affected by variances in climate. All metal grommets and zip sliders have been coated to match the colour of the pack and increase their resistance to corrosion. The entire pack features numerous web platform points, allowing you to attach a host of 5.11 SlickStick accessories if you wish (compatible with standard MOLLE attachment systems).

  I've been using the smaller rush 12 daily, for almost a decade. It has been a joy to use and looks as good as new, so I couldn't look past 5.11's Rush 24 when I decided I needed something just a bit bigger for some occasions. (It'll do as aeroplane hand luggage dimensions wise) Just like the 12 the 24 is excellent build quality and will outlast me! Really light. It has really well thought out internal/external pockets. Plus molle webbing gives infinite options. Compared to the 12 this hardly seems bigger at all when you look at them side by side but it's just subtly larger in every dimension and you really notice/appreciate the extra volume. I actually think if I was to buy one bag I should have got the 24. I bought the 12 because it was sufficient for my daily needs but the 24 doesn't feel much bulkier at all. Probably why the 24 is the most popular 5.11 bag. Really can't see past 5.11 rush packs. The 12 & 24 are the perfect design and unbeatable in the 20-35L bracket in my opinion/experience. [I note a few reviews on the 5.11 website mention it's hard to find a waist belt for the buckles at the bottom of the bag (apparently 5.11 themselves don't do one which is a bit odd I guess) - but they obviously don't see it as important or would include as standard?! Note that many smaller 5.11 bags do have integral waist belts - that's going to work far better than anything you get for this buckle - so in my view they just dont think it an important feature for this design. I'd have to agree. Fully laden I've never felt the need to disperse some of the weight off onto my hips. If you want to carry high density items like text books or gold bars though maybe get another pack!)

  Excellent day (or overnight) pack. Very durable, smart design. Lots of storage capacity, separate pockets inside, including camel bag pocket at the backside. The only oddity is the fact that there are buckles for attachment of a waist belt but 5.11 Tactical doesn't include one. Moreover, 5.11 doesn't supply matching waist belts themselves (despite the fact that they have carried this product for a number of years now) and they confine themselves to the suggestion to look for a good country store and try to purchase the necessary waist belt clips and webbing in the right thickness. However, the buckles are 1.5 inch wide, while most separate belts are 1.75 inch. So, if you want to include a waist belt with this pack (which is recommended if you carry extra weight for a longer period of time), you'll need to improvise.
