GORUCK GR1 Rucksack - Black

The GR1 is GORUCK’s original military-grade rucksack and its most popular piece of gear, optimized for both rucking / tactical bodyweight training and reliable everyday backpack use.

Each GR1 pack is strength tested at over 400 LBS and takes 4 hours to hand-build, utilizing only the best materials: including durable 1000D CORDURA and YKK zippers with silent pulls.

Available here in the 21L or 26L size, the waterproof GR1 includes a bombproof laptop compartment, MOLLE compatibility, extra-padded straps, multiple small accessory pockets, open-flat versatility, and 2x3” Velcro for adding a patch.

For a More Compact Option with a special pocket designed specifically for GORUCK Ruck Plates, see the 20L or 25L Rucker.

Key Features of the GR-1 Rucksack

  • 1Optimized for Rucking and/or Everyday Use

    While the GR1 is functionally equipped to use as a standard gym bag, travel carry-on, or work/school backpack, its origins comes from Special Forces training; specifically rucking. A standard bodyweight training exercise on military bases for years, rucking has now become a familiar event at major CrossFit competitions and a staple of strength training for leading college and pro athletic programs. In a ruck march or loaded march, athletes walk or run carrying a custom-weighted rucksack; challenging major muscle groups in the legs and back and promoting greater overall endurance.

  • 2Built to Last

    The GR1 is a military-caliber rucksack, manufactured from durable, abrasion-resistant 1000D Cordura with silent YKK zippers made from parachute 550 cord. A removable hard plastic frame sheet supports the integrity of the pack as you weigh it down, and a rain proof exterior + bomb-proof laptop compartment + false bottom design ensure your most valuable cargo stays safe. Finally, GORUCK’s extra-padded straps and top handle help prevent discomfort / friction and keep you moving freely, longer.

  • 3Load It Up

    With its laptop compartment, 3 internal pockets, and 1 external slant pocket, the GR1 offers versatile storage for everyday items, while also working great with loadable rucking weights like Rogue’s Brick Bags. For athletes interested in adding even more customization beyond the weight load itself, the GR1’s external MOLLE webbing and 2x3” velcro patch create endless options, including the attachment of any of our Rogue Velcro Patches.

GORUCK - GR1 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from For life Like an old friend. I've had it 7 or 8 years now and it is as good as new. I use it for the gym, as a carryon, shopping, overnighter and take to work. Ironically, the only thing I don't think it does well is ruck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but Bang for your buck! Never dreamed of investing so much in a day to day backpack - especially given shipping costs to UK but this is one of the best purchases I've ever made, here's why: - Unsurpassable comfort and convenience if you're looking to cart around weights - Rogue's plates fit like a dream but the bag will hold just about anything e.g. standard weight plates - Safe laptop compartment - big enough to fit virtually any sizw - Water protection (my previous bag almost goosed my work's laptop!) - The design, build, feel and materials all ring pure quality - this thing will last Am not a paid stooge, just someone who appreciates good. If you're hesitating, go fot it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb Proof I've use this bag for everything and got a little tear right on the zipper. I sent it back in for their lifetime guarantee and they patched it up and sent it back in free of charge. Nice to buy something for a lifetime instead of a new bag every 3-5 years
