  • "Amazing bag with perfect organization."

GORUCK GR2 Review: Is It A Worth It?

"When all is said and done, is the GORUCK GR2 a backpack worth buying? My answer is a 100% yes - if you’re looking for a versatile carry on backpack, this is definitely one of the best options out there. "

GORUCK GR2 Review : An Adventure-Ready Travel Pack

"For anyone that travels adventurously or is searching for a “buy it for life” backpack that will last years of abuse, the GORUCK GR2 is worth the seemingly high price tag. High-quality materials (1000D Cordura Nylon, YKK zippers), high-quality construction, durable testing to 400lbs loads, and a lifetime SCARS guarantee make the GORUCK GR2 well worth the pricetag as it will serve you for years to come in ways normal travel backpacks simply can’t."


"The GR2 is worth the money if you're looking for a tough and versatile "buy it for life" bag."
