Whether you’re going tactical, tacticool, or just plain going out for a day hike, the 5.11 Tactical RUSH24 backpack has a little something for everybody. 

SOFREP was recently contacted by the fine folks at 5.11 who sent us one of their new highspeed backpacks, the RUSH24, to review. And we have taken our time to put it through its paces. 

Just like everything else made by 5.11, RUSH24’s construction is heavy-duty: 1000D abrasion and water-resistant nylon, YKK zippers, Duraflex buckles. It provides easy and great organization.
