GORUCK Ruck Plate Carrier 3.0

Version 3.0 of the GORUCK Plate Carrier™ (RPC) keeps the streamlined design and 1000D Cordura construction of the previous model while rolling out several new features, including a padded grab-and-go top handle and thicker padding on the top of the plate pocket for added protection during dynamic movements.

The RPC 3.0 also introduces improved ergonomic lumbar support padding, a wider sternum strap (to better disperse heavy loads), and a less abrasive fabric on the back panel and underside of the shoulder straps–meaning athletes can train shirtless with no worries about friction burn.

Available here in coyote brown, the GORUCK Plate Carrier 3.0 can also be ordered in small, standard, or large sizing (see Fit Guide). Each size is equipped to hold 20 LB or 30 LB Ruck Plates® (sold separately), which will securely fit into the ruck’s elevated plate pocket.

Key features of the Ruck Plate Carrier 3.0 include:

  • Lumbar padding supports the natural curve of your back
  • Ruck Plate® compatible (20LB and 30LB)
  • Shoulder straps are extra padded to carry heavier weight more comfortably
  • Padded Top Lid protects during dynamic movements
  • Padded Top Handle
  • Durable ballistic nylon bottom panel
  • Streamlined & Easy to Clean: No spacer mesh, no zippers, no extra straps, and no extra MOLLE. Just a clean design that can be spray cleaned with a hose and hang dried.
  • Padded Hook-and-Loop Plate Pocket: Keeps Ruck Plates secure, high on the back, even when you’re upside down.
  • Removable/Adjustable Training Sternum Strap: Keeps the RPC secure without constricting breath or movement; now tougher and wider.

Worth spending a little more
I’ve had mine for a few months now and they’re good but the lack of a hip strap really makes this product difficult for a lot of uses. Hard for me to call it a “ruck” without it. That said this product is great for quickly adding weight to push-ups, pull-ups, dips, and other body weight movements. That is my primary use for it. The quality of the product I have had zero issues. For improvements, to me it could be cinched up a little tighter. It just doesn’t fit snug up on my back. I have since spent the extra money and bought a GoRuck backpack and enjoy it a lot more than this item
