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.
Other compatible products for use with the GR1 include:
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.
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.
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.
