My Everyday Carry
When you're responsible for one of the most iconic EDC backpacks of all time — the 5.11 RUSH — people had better pay attention to your follow-up product. The Tactix is First Tactical's (led by former 5.11 founder Dan Costa) flagship backpack, respecting the great things about the original RUSH and taking them into 2016 with even better features and functionality.
Let's start with lasers—specifically, a laser-cut web platform compatible with MOLLE/PALS. This lets the Tactix maintain a lower profile with no extruding loops but still maintain structural integrity thanks to its two-layer, 500D nylon design. There's room to spare with 7 external and 9 internal pockets with a total of 40.5 liters of capacity, giving you all the organization you need for both light trips and heavy deployments. Removable compression straps, adjustable shoulder and sternum straps, and even side handles let you carry the Tactix comfortably as needed. No compromises were made for the rest of the backpack's production: water-resistant nylon, YKK zippers, and Duraflex hardware round out its construction.
