Rushed? 5.11’s Ultimate Bug-Out Bag Ready to Run



Because if you ever need a bug-out bag, you’re going to need it in a RUSH.

Over one million. That’s how many 5.11 Tactical RUSH backpacks have been sold in the last 14 years. Clearly, the RUSH tactical pack is the top choice for serious adventurers, weekend warriors, and regular Joes, and that’s because 5.11 knows how to deliver the quality and utility that we need from a bug-out bag. In fact, there’s only one thing better than a RUSH backpack, and that’s the brand-new RUSH 2.0 Series.

The RUSH 2.0 is best described as “Everything you asked for in the last 14 years.” It takes everything you love about 5.11’s original bag and adds the updates consumers have been asking for. Just like the original backpack, it’s durable, customizable, MOLLE compatible, comfortable and functional. Unlike the original, the RUSH 2.0 boasts a padded laptop compartment. (Because, yes, in this day and age a laptop is a necessity!) It’s elevated 1 inch from the base of the pack and secured with a front and rear padded sleeve.

The RUSH has a new update for concealed-carry, too! Further drawing on feedback from end-users, 5.11 added a concealed-carry compartment located behind the zippered front pocket on the face of the pack. A hook-and-loop closure system keeps this new compartment secure and discreet for keeping contents accessible but hidden. Additional updates include revised interior organization; a relocated hydration port; a larger fleece-lined eyewear and media pocket, and all-new color options.

The RUSH™ 2.0 Series is available in three capacities: RUSH12™ 2.0 (24 liters) (MSRP $109.99), RUSH24™ 2.0 (37 liters) (MSRP $139.99) and RUSH72™ 2.0 (55 liters) (MSRP $189.99).

“Our Gear product team worked with tactical and outdoor experts and public safety professionals for several years to gather feedback from in-field testing by real-life end users,” said 5.11’s Vice President of Global Product, Matt Page. “The result is an enhanced line of packs that will live up to the reputation of the original RUSH™ Series and meet our customers’ need for many years to come.” To learn more about 5.11 or the RUSH™ 2.0 Series, please visit
