    I recently purchased a 5.11 Rush 24 Bag in Flat Dark Earth.
    Anyone know how to add a compression strap to the lower portion of the bag?
    Where I can get the materials in Flat Dark Earth color?

    You could buy a set of 5.11's tier straps and use those, I think that's what most people tend to do.

    They only make them in black and sandstone.

    Funny thing - I'm getting looks from people around while walking on the streets or at the university with the R12. Guess the tacticool khaki backpack with a flag patch and a blood-type patch on it isn't exactly what one usually carries with him on lectures and classes. Still, it makes me chuckle at the thought that it's all right having bright green (red, pink etc) hair or some extravagant (overextravagant, I'd say) clothes - no questions asked. The second I show up comes the question "are you going outdoor hiking with that thing or what?"
    I'm starting to get some kind of inferiority complex. And thinking of purchasing the R24 at the same time.

    Hello all. This is my first post. Just got my Rush 12 and still in the process of getting it the way I want it. First question has anyone used there hydration pocket as a concealed pocket? I will probably never use it for hydration so thought the idea of using it as a concealed pocket would come in handy. I know there is no way to attach any kind of straps in there but anyone have any ideas on anything slim that would fit in there that would hold the gun and one extra mag? Now this leads me to my 2nd question. Any good way of locking the zippers? Not really all that secure if I just throw a lock around the pull strings but dont know of any other way.

    My galco kingtuk/crossbreed supertuck fits perfectly in there with my G26 holstered to it.

    That sucks doesn't it?

    I wanted a H20 carrier for my sandstone coloured pack a while back only to discover that they don't do one, ended up with a cheap Rothco one that almost matches in colour.

    I just rec'd my Rush 24 yesterday. I added a Max water bottle holder and a TT/MSM admin pouch. I like it so far. I've been switching between a Synapse 25 and a CUA, but, at least at first blush, I prefer the organization of the 24. I'm still playing with the configuration....

    Love the Star Wars patch. I've been trying to decide between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire myself. They have the Jedi patch too....

    My rush 12 is in the mail.

    I need to know where you've had the name patches made up for the top of your 5.11's and if you know of somewhere in the UK that will do them?

    Thanks

    Is this the 12? What color is that? All I can find in the 12 is black, sand and MC.

    Yes it's a RUSH 12 and it's 'sandstone'

    That picture was taken on my mobile in fading light which probably accounts for the colour rendition.

    Ok. It's does look darker than sand. Wishing they made the 12 in OD. Have the 24 in OD and like the color.

    TY.
