    Well, since we got a ton of our posts deleted and our wrists slapped for "talking too much" on the other forum, I came over here and found you are here also and with more pics! Got me one in black ordered from First Tactical with a 25% off coupon applied and free shipping plus no taxes, got it for $120 to my door.

    Hell of a deal. With tax I spent $170.00. I like 5.11 but got hooked on laser cut molle. If 5.11 started using that all my packs would be 5.11. I thought the Tactix half day would be to small but I was wrong. Plenty of room. By the way did you use the code to get the free pouch they were offering?

    You police? I'm really partial to Danner because I had a pair last me longer than any other brand I tried, including Rocky, Magnum, 5.11, or Thorogood.

    Nope, ex military. Im in sales but a gear junkie like all the rest on here. I spend slot of time in the desert so need a boot that keeps my feet cool and protects them as well.

    LOL. I was lucky to find a dealer here locally, It was going to be the same price either way I looked at it. They charge tax to our state so I said screw it, I'll support the local guys here, and got a couple of free patches out of it.

    Yep! Came in today and it is nice, I do like the laser cut molle, and outside of a couple very minor design flaws, it is the perfect bag. However, the top pocket zipper is malfunctioning and I’m going to see if FT will replace the bag. Other than that, I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it.

    The design issues I am seeing is that I wished the zippers on the admin pocket came all the way down the sides so it could open up more like the Rush 12, and I wished the zippers on the front two long pockets closed the other direction or it had two zipper pulls to let me decide. Other than those very minor things, this is a great bag. I am loving the CCW pocket and the rear hang thru pocket is going to store my iPad and Fire HD 8 nicely to and from work. Some of the zipper pulls are kind of weak and I was looking forward to converting them to my 550 paracord with some knockoff 5.11 pull tabs that I like, but I’m putting that off until FT lets me know what to do with this one since it is malfunctioning. Here are some pics of the malfunctioning zipper and a couple of the it next to the Rush 12 to give other folks some perspective. It didn’t take long for my beloved Rush 12 to get snatched up though, the wife has already had me strip my junk from it and now it’s loaded for her work. The Rush 24 I had her using was too big for her and she had her eye on my 12 for a while.

    Looks good. Sorry to hear about the top pocket zipper. I'm sure FT will take care of it. So far I'm hooked on these packs. I do agree about the zippers on the admin pouch and the 2 front pockets but like you said minor issues that I can live with.
    I've been using this pack everyday and in my opinion it seems better than 5.11. Like i said before, if 5.11 started building packs like these i would go back in a heartbeat. Very comfortable to wear on long hikes also.

    Sending the bag back with the enclosed return label they sent me and they are sending out a new one, which is great, but man I hate waiting another week or more!

    On a side note, I liked the bag so much, now I’ve got my eye on the 1 Day Plus, probably going to pull the trigger on that one when they run another 50% off sale.

    When you see that sale please PM me and let me know. I was debating between the 2 so if they do have a 25 or 50% off sale I'll jump on it. I would bet they will send the new one out as soon as the shipping label gets scanned. Just picked up a new FT patch for mine so I'll upload a picture after I am done fighting this Mad Cow Disease cold that has attached me and my family.

    I'll post some pics of mine this weekend, finally got it in last Monday. After checking it over real good, I decked it out with some charcoal w/reflective tracers zipper pulls and handles. Plus, added a MSM Patch Pouch to the front and few other small things. Loving it so far, it truly is a more advanced Rush 12.
