πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Highly durable and reliable with great craftsmanship.
  • Reinforced laptop compartment that will surely keep your laptop safe during your travels or everyday commute.
  • The straps and padding are actually really comfortable after breaking in.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • Needs to be broken in because the straps and suspension can be stiff at first.
  • Little rough on clothes considering the material used in creating this bag.
  • Can be too pricey.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "Made a 40 lb ammo can feel lighter than my 22 lb camping pack. Feels very sturdy and hasn't had a single stitch break so far with about 10-20 miles per week averaging a 35-40 lb load. All connecting points feel secure."
  • "The amount of attention to detail is impressive and helps to justify the cost. I'm active daily outdoors and frequently carry a backpack, this is the most well-built I have ever seen. The GR1 is also one of the most comfortable packs I've carried. If there is anything that I would change it would be the pocket for the steel plate on the inside."

πŸ”Ž Reviews


"Blending a conservative aesthetic that fits in a work space, with a military spec that can John Rambo through war zones, the GR1 is a super-versatile workhorse. It ain’t cheap, but it will definitely last. It looks just as good with a suit as it does in full camo. "


"The GORUCK GR1 is a medium-sized travel pack that can handle just about anything you might want to throw at it. With its simple design, precise craftsmanship, and durable materials—it is built to last."

GORUCK GR1 Backpack Review

"This bag would be best for someone who isn’t looking for a hundred features. Rather, they want something where they can customize things a bit to really make the bag their own for a lifetime (we’ve heard great things about GORUCK’s Scars warranty program). It’s also meant for people who appreciate the more tactical design of the bag, rather than a sleek chic look."
