I did make one minor change to the bag. The zipper pulls throughout are black, which makes it difficult to find the zippers on the inside of the bag. I removed the black pull cords on all the inside zippers and replaced them with reflective yellow pulls made from 2.5mm cord. Big improvement, now you can open it up and instantly find the zipper pulls.
I intend to use the Rush 72 as my travel and camping bag. Among the features I like - just the right size, lots of organization in the pockets, fairly unobtrusive in black, when it isn't full it compresses down nicely. Like the other 5.11 tactical gear, it's well built and sturdy. PALS webbing on the outside is handy for attaching stuff.
I have a separate 70 liter backpack that I take backpacking. Some have noted that the Rush 72 is a bit heavy. It's tactical gear, not backpacking gear. A real backpack has better load bearing, more space and a better hip belt.
UPDATE as of 4/1/16: Have stuffed this bag with gear to test capacity/ease of use. I dislike the bag more and more as I use it. It's just not well built at all. MOLLE attachment loops don't feel or look like they are going to hold out very long. Side bags aren't designed right, if you have the inside full you loose capacity on the outer bags. Waist strap is not for real, its added for looks only. In fact the whole bag is really for looks only. Do not trust this thing with your life.
Update: This bag is very well made as common with 5.11 products; but I just noticed that for [mid-range] backpacking trips the frameless design makes this bag not the most comfortable and supporting, especially when your back is not totally healthy (I often have pain in my lumbar area due to a bulging disk). After all, this is my mistake because this is not really what this bag is made for, this is a tactical bag. I decided to return it and buy me an Osprey Atmos 65 AG
This bag will hold a small body in it if needed.. its that big! It almost feels more like 2 bags attached to eachother as the outter bag holds as much or more than most kids backpacks! The main compartment routes the hydration without any issue and the comfort once I have the bag on is amazing. I forget the bags size. Im fairly happy with this bag and am looking forward to seeing how it holds up!
