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.

Ready for your next tactical backpack? You can order one direct from First Tactical with free shipping from their online store, or at Amazon at the link below (with Prime-eligible shipping on 5/4).

After originally purchasing the First Tactical Half-day pack, I realized it wasn't large enough to fit my laptop. The design of the pack was so amazing, I went ahead and upgraded to the Tactix line. I can't say enough about the quality and design that went into making this bag. It is everything I need in a travel and EDC pack, and is endlessly customizable for any situation. I'm looking forward to seeing how it holds up during Red Cross deployments.

I had the pleasure to beta test this bag before the release. I have over 35 back packs and this one by far is the best I have ever owned. The only draw back is the limited color choices however everything else is great about the pack. I have traveled with this pack and used it for work. The material holds up and is sturdy. First Tactical got it right for back packs on this one.

Holy smokes, a 40L pack? That is larger than the USGI assault pack.
