I ended up getting the 5.11 Tactical RUSH 24
I like the Datsusara a lot, but the Rush was a was a bigger pack (roughly the same size as the Battlepack Core), at about the same price.I also had a chance to look at the Rush at a local sporting goods store, so I knew exactly what I was getting. If I had been able to see the Datsusara before purchasing, I might have stuck with it.
So far, I really like the Rush. It will fit everything I need (full Gi, plus my No-Gi stuff) easily. The thing is rugged as hell, so it will take one hell of a beating.
I ended up buying it from ManVenture Outpost. Their prices are great, but their shipping is HORRIBLE! It took almost 3 weeks to get here. I’m not sure I’d buy from them again.
(if anyone decides to tough out the wait, you can use manventureoutpost.com as a coupon code. But seriously, the wait sucked)
