    I bought this backpack and used it once. It's just too big for what I'm putting in it. Anyone else found this to be the same?
    I'd trade in a heartbeat for a RUSH 24.
    I also have the 12. A tad bit too small, but use that one for the beach ect..

    I have the 24 and it's nice, but use other daypacks because of the weight.

    Rush24 is currently my BOB. 72+ hours of gear fits in fine for me, molle straps are amazing. Sleeping bag with 2 10x10 tarps strapped to the bottom. It has more room than most give it credit for I believe.

    I agree. That's why I don't like it for day trips. Honestly, anything we can fit into one is a lot more than most people carried in the old days.

    I should add, I did order two Condor EMT pouches to attach both sides. They both are used for my FAKs and hold everything except my peroxide and alcohol, which go in with my normal gear.
