GORUCK GR1

JUST DROPPED

$335.00

From Baghdad to NYC

Proven to Special Forces standards, GR1 is GORUCK's flagship rucksack and synonymous with the best of American Manufacturing. Each GR1 is built to last and comes with the Scars Lifetime Guarantee.


The GORUCK GR1 has proven itself the world over including at thousands of GORUCK Events as the greatest rucksack ever built. That’s why any change, any modification of any kind is a huge deal, requiring extensive testing and a strong why. In this case, four years of testing a new fabric (210D CORDURA® ) for the back panel.

We have used this fabric on the Rucker’s back panel since 2020, we see no failure through our Scars Lifetime Guarantee Department — but we see a lot of upside. It’s more versatile to wear with travel shirts like Merino Wool or tank-tops. Hell, you can even wear it shirtless if that’s your thing. After all of this data and usage of 210D on the back panel and under the straps, we have now updated GR1 — our flagship rucksack, Built in the USA — and this is our first significant update to GR1. You’re going to like it better because it’s even more versatile now, no matter how you plan to use it. And we hope you use it hard, and all over the world.

GR1 ORIGINS

BAGHDAD X NYC

Jason McCarthy was living on his buddy’s couch in NYC with all his deployment gear, trying to figure out how to transition from the military world he missed to the civilian world he was in. He poured his heart into what became GR1 because it felt like he was building a bridge he desperately needed to cross in his life. To honor his roots but still look forward.
