    Love it,there are worse hobbies and it's something you can always put to use .

    With that many you should do a YouTube channel reviewing, I like your balanced out look I think it would be interesting

    Ha, funny you should say that! I'm actually in the middle of launching a podcast as part of my day job, so maybe the same kind of thing could work for bags too.

    Sadly I won't be using this as EDC. I know it sounds silly because I actually think this might be my perfect pack. The wrong colour has really put me off. A19 have been great and very kindly offered to refund the shipping (which means I only paid $99 for this bag, well and customs charges). But I would love one in a solid colour I think.

    I'm back to my First Tactical half day pack for EDC at the moment, until I decide if I can cope with buying a Mystery Ranch Rip Ruck and getting it sent from the USA to the UK having paid more shipping than the bag cost.

    So far, the only couple of things I would like to see is more color options (I love the Double Tap 5.11) and also wished they'd put higher visibility material in the pocket and admin areas to make it easier to find stuff. I'll probably go with black because thats what everything I have is and I generally like black. Other than those very minor quibbles, I have no real reason not to get me one. The only other thing is I'm not so sure about the laser cut molle, I really love the old fashioned molle on my 5.11 packs, and stuff like my Whiskey Two Four loopanwhere hook and loop panels fit it perfect. This laser cut won't so much.

    I actually like the lazer cut molle. Much lighter and stronger ghan old school molle and less fraying . Also from a distance it does not scream tactical until your up close to it. I do which they made several color choices, did not like the coyote brown when i saw it. I love 5.11 packs, so i would say if your on fence about it, get it. Well worth the investment. Differently more than a R24 or R12 but worth every penny.

    Well, I guess I'll see, just pulled the trigger on one. I found a 25% off coupon for their website, got it free shipping with no taxes for a grand total of $120 even. Got a black one, I've seen a few pictures of the black Tactix with a light grey interior, I really hope this has that. But if it doesn't oh well.

    Can you tell me what this insert is please? Did it fit your bag right out of the box, or did you have to cut it down?

    Grey Man Tactical Rigid Molle Panel (RIP-M), fit right out of the package, you just buy whatever size you need that they offer. Great customer service, and they make panels for most popular bags (Goruck, 5.11) and tons of sizes to get exactly what you need.

    Now that is a title!

    Actually, collectively we could probably do more audio bag reviews...

    I like the multi a.m. but could understand wanting something in a solid color. I did the same with my gr1. Originally was a multi cam then I got a black one.

    I only have 1 bag. Rush 24. It’s not an everyday carry but I use it to carry all of my photography equipment. I wear this bag for hours on end. At the beginning of the year I wore this bag fully loaded for 12 hrs straight A’s I was shooting the 12 hr race. No shoulder pain at all.

    @Journo
    If not too much trouble, would you mind sharing your pros and cons of the First Tactical Specialist half day and Rush 12?

    Thanks

    I'll have to get a logo designed, but I have started to write the first episode.


    I like them both, for me the FT wins because of the laptop section on the back, it's a dedicated pocket (that I think is raised) and unlike the RUSH12 I don't have to fold the straps over to get into it.

    Comparing the two the velcro area on the FT is bigger, it has a pocket on the bottom that I can keep a rain cover in (or things that I want to hide), the whole back of the main section is fuzzy velcro so I can attach things to it, It has a similar zipped mesh pocket but it also has two other pockets in the main compartment which are more useful for me because they are perfect for my audio recording kit.

    The admin section just seems better the variety of slots seems better, and it has the zippered stash pocket like the 5.11. The FT has the whole rifle pass through thing, which I never use but do sometimes stash paperwork in there.

    I have the RUSH 12 and I carry it, I enjoy it, because of the style. I have the First Tactical Specialist and I carry that because it's great for me and does things that I want it to. If FT could clone the RUSH then I would be happy.

    Thank you Journo for the detailed reply, think I'll order the First Tactical. Question though, does the velcro in the rifle pass through extend up to the top of that compartment? I'm thinking like for a holster or mag pouches.

    Looking forward to your future reviews.
