5.11 is a complete tactical company. They originally started selling tactical style clothing for police, overseas contractors, and corrections officers, and have slowly grown into one of the most prolific and well known tactical distributor.

Best 5.11 Tactical Bags

Let’s face it, most of the time in a tactical situation, you can have immediate access to your tactical pack to address whatever situation you come against. Whether this is a military boom bag stuffed full of ammo and grenades, a police response bag, or a civilian bug out bag, the idea is that it’s available when you need it. When you need something a little different for daily carry, a special niche pack or simply a tough and dependable school bag a pack just isn’t it.

A pack is often too big and bulky and will have a lot of unnecessary space left available. A more tactical pack is often smaller and easier to carry daily, or in a quick, rapidly moving situation a smaller and more compact bag is much handier. These five bags represent a wide variety of high quality, tactical bags.

5.11 Rush 24 Back Pack Product Review

5.11 Rush 24 Back Pack

5.11 Rush 24 Back Pack

The term day pack sounds somewhat nice and quaint. It sounds like something one would take to a theme park, or maybe a picnic on the beach. In reality the term day pack has a lot more going for it than that.

A day pack in the military is known for being something completely different. A day pack is what you fill up with food, ammo, water, optics, extra batteries, an etool, a radio, extra socks, and some toys for the local national children at times.

A day pack is sometimes called an assault pack in the military, as it’s meant to store enough equipment, food, and water to sustain an individual for 24 hours at a time. In places like the Helmand province of Afghanistan where there are very little roads, and often no infrastructure, you have little chance of getting any kind of mobile resupply quickly.

Product Review of the 5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Pack

5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Bag

5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Bag

The 5.11 tactical series of back packs is quite varied and often split into different series, like the Rush, the All Hazard, and now the MOAB.

The MOAB 10 or Mobile Operation Attachment Bag 10 is the largest in their sling bag series. Sling bags are not traditional back packs with two straps, as they feature one wide strap that is attached diagonally across the bag.

Advantages of Sling Bags

Sling bags are often must faster to throw on and drop off, and when working in and out of vehicles, bags like MOAB are much easier to work with than your average day bag. The tradeoff being that most sling style bags are smaller and not as comfortable to wear on long patrols.

The MOAB 10 is probably the largest sling bag out there. The MOAB 10 is only a little shallower than a standard day pack. The MOAB 10 does have extra MOLLE to add on extra pouches and increase the overall capacity, or to better organize the bag.

5.11 ALL Hazards Prime Backpack – Product Review

5.11 Tactical has never entered the market with cheap, substandard tactical gear. They’ve always approached the market with their products and stood behind them. It’s easy to see why, when bags like the All Hazards Prime is one of their products. The All Hazards Prime combines ideas never before seen in a tactical pack.

An Overview

The basics of the pack are that it is purposely built for you to purposely build it, if that makes sense. The point is it’s extremely adaptable, but saying that feels like it’s cheapening the true meaning of the bag.

An AR-15 rifle is adaptable, but at the end of the day it’s still an AR-15 rifle. The All Hazard Prime is a backpack, until you turn into a range bag, or until you turn it into 72 hour bag, or until it becomes you squad’s medical bag. It more than adapts; it transforms.
