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 - USA is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing backpack Bought this backpack a month ago, for an EDC/gym bag/weekender usage and I’m very happy with it. Yes it’s pricey, but the look and feel is amazing. I use to have more pockets in my bag so it took some time to get use to it, but now I feel much better for my commute and travel, especially thanks to the « high-profile » limiting the depth of the pack, and so the struggle during crowded commuting. It takes some time to break it in, but it feels like it will last forever.
