The RUSH 72 Backpack is larger and created to be a 3-day backpack. The full web platform on the frame allows you to carry all of your MOLLE gear. You can drop the compression straps on the side to expand the front compartment to fit a sleeping bag, tent, etc. The top grab handle is rated for around 2,000 pounds and a removable hardplate allows you carry sharp objects or heavy loads without worry of being accidentally poked. Multiple pockets on the exterior and interior of the bag keeps you organized and allows you to pack the bag the way you want it.

Just Right Size and Material
PROS: I wrote a review for the 72 and also the 24. I like the heavy canvas material on both as I tend to overpack EVERYTHING. Lesser products usually cannot survive me but I expect this bag to do just fine. It looks to have plenty of stitching and extra heavy material along with pockets a plenty. I am pretty sure this bag can handle as much volume and weight as I can. One thing I especially liked was dealing with Luggage Pros. I had never heard of them but they did a great job on timeliness, updates, and a good price. Thanks guys!

CONS: While my wife likes the 24 hour bag it is going to take this 72 hour bag to pack the amount of gear I want to haul without ripping. Compare sizes carefully before ordering. Did I mention I overpack EVERYTHING.

Great piece of Gear
PROS: Great organization built in...Easy to find gear in a hurry. Tough so far. Not as bad as I thought on the price, and seems a good value. Two deployments down, many to go, I don't think you'll be disappointed in this pack. Glasses pouch VERY cool by the way.

CONS: None that I've found yet.
