Gold Standard of Bug Out Bags

Simply the best bug out bag on the market. You will not find anything better when you look at price, fit, capacity, MOLLE attachment points, and available compatible MOLLE attachments. In fact, I've only seen one other manufacturer put out a bug out bag which would qualify as a worthy runner-up. In terms of price, I look at it this way: you are paying for a real bug out bag here. You can live out of this thing for well beyond 72 hours. This bag is easy to put on your back and carry a good amount of gear comfortably. When it comes to MOLLE attachment points, more is more, and no one has more than the Rush 72. Side attachments can be double decked on the side pockets. Square MOLLE bags can be attached to the bottom of the pack and to the outside of the organizer compartment. Velcro straps can then be used to attach stuff sacks to these points. Bug out bag meets Lego set; it doesn't get much better than that. If you're looking to buy a bug out bag, I can not emphasize enough to buy a real one and not a toy, and buying a real bug out bag means buying the Rush 72.

Worst Pack Yet

I took this pack out for a 3 day backpacking trip, just like the pack implies. The strap system is the worst of any pack I have used. The waist belt does not carry any of the weight and no matter what I did could not get it to work. This transferred all weight directly to the shoulders. I had to cut the trip short due to the amount if pain this pack caused. I have used many different packs and hiked many long miles of trails and this one was the worst. The pack looks awesome and has plenty of room but don't just ever expect to put it on.
