    I think it is a Heat Shrink Tube.

    Buy a pack of heat shrink tubes at Home Depot or Lowes... slip the size on the pull, then uses a hair drier to shrink it tight onto your zipper pull.

    It's just heat shrink tubing over gutted Paracord like the Goruck zippers. I have them on my 24 and love it.

    Is that just spray paint? It looks really good I might have to do that to my 12.

    My first 5.11 That started it all. Haven't posted a pic of it in a while but here's my 24 after 3 years of abuse. It's my college bag that I carry every single day and Iv used it as a work bag which is carrying it through the south Texas brush, over night bag, travel bag, fishing bag where it's been fully submerged, day hiking pack, and any thing else you can think of. The bag has no real sign of heavy wear (damage) it just no longer sits up right. 5.11 products are defiantly worth the money!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What do you have on the sides there? Mods? Or are these after market additions attached with molle system?

    Yup, as your looking on the left is a cheap eBay insulated canteen pouch and on the right is a cheap eBay med pouch. Both of which cost less than $15 and have held up well considering the abuse that packs been through

    Just got my Rush 12 in the mail. Amazon made my decision easier between the R12 and the M10 with the price.

    A patch my wife got me for my birthday I'll probably rotate it through with a couple more.

    A very portly-looking Rush 12, ready to keep me going through an all-day shotgun competition. Inside was about 175 rounds of birdshot, 30 slugs, a 32oz HydroFlask, a couple of apples, some snickerdoodles, a can of CLP, Leatherman Charge TTi, and a Becker 17 along for the ride. The Otter Wax job I did a couple weeks back worked great, as there was an off-and-on and then steady rain throughout the day - the pack stayed dry.

    Hope I am posting in the right place... I would like to try either the 5.11 Nitro or the Rish 12. I would need to add a hipbelt. Has anyone else added a padded hipbelt?
    I was hoping I could run a web belt through a 5.11 Brokos belt and be set.
