The VTAC RUSH72 and smaller RUSH24 backpacks were designed by Kyle Lamb, a guy who has certainly tread his share of miles with loads of gear.

Ruggedly constructed from water-resistant, 1050-denier nylon, the backpacks feature flexible main storage compartments that open completely from top to bottom for total access to the internal space with its many dividers and compression straps. Side pockets and front organizer compartments round out your primary storage area. Other features include a hydration pocket with VELCRO® brand flap-covered hydration hose port, a protected fleece-lined eyewear pocket, an internal cinch-closed waterproof pocket for rain gear or wet clothes, a wealth of mesh and nylon organizer pockets, and enough MOLLE webbing loops and VELCRO® brand strips to attach all the external gear pouches, ID Panels and flags you want. Sternum straps make carrying easier. YKK® zippers are used throughout for dependable operation and durability.

The RUSH72 is sized for a three-day excursion. It features larger compartments throughout, plus an adjustable waistband with built-in hip pads to make your load easier to carry. Fleece-lined pockets along the front top are sized to hold a cell phone, PDA, or MP3 player. As a VTAC platform, the RUSH72 makes extensive use of MOLLE-compatible webbing on the front and sides, as well as VELCRO® brand name tape and flag holders. Approximate Dimensions: 15" W x 22" H, expandable up to 10" D.

5.11 Tactical has joined forces with Kyle E. Lamb and Viking Tactics. After serving his country for 21 years, 17 of which were in the most elite elements of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, SMG Lamb is now one of the most sought-after shooting and tactics instructors in the country, the owner of Viking Tactics, Inc,. (VTAC™ ), and the inventor of the acclaimed Viking Tactics Sling.

5.11 SLICKSTICK™ SYSTEM—MOLLE made better.
5.11 has collaborated with Kyle Lamb and Viking Tactics to develop a proprietary line of what we feel is the most functional, and most complete system of web gear available. This innovative system of load-bearing equipment, rifle cases, backpacks, and a wide range of pouches, cases, and carriers is designed to make it easier than ever to carry and customize your tactical gear. All 5.11 VTAC gear is fully MOLLE compatible—but 5.11’s patent-pending SlickStick™ System makes it far easier to attach, detach, and simply move pouches and gear around.


The 5.11 Slickstick™ is compatible with standard MOLLE attachment systems, yet makes it much easier to attach, remove, and arrange your pouches and gear. Instead of the sewn-on soft nylon webbing that must be painstakingly woven through the loops on both pieces of gear, the Slickstick System offers a far more convenient alternative. The semi-rigid, reinforced nylon Slickstick, which slides through a polymer D-ring at the top of the VTAC pouch, is far easier to weave—or simply slide—through the loops. Snap it closed, just like a MOLLE strap, and your VTAC pouch is secure. Removing a pouch is as easy as popping the snaps and pulling the Slicksticks out.
