GORUCK GR2 Rucksacks
No matter your size, the GR2 travels hard and well and complies with TSA size requirements for carry-on bags. Its simplicity, functionality, and focus on organization take inspiration from Special Forces medical rucks. It is overwhelmingly the favorite ruck of GORUCK Cadre.
It’s more about usage. Both the 34L and 40L are travel rucks, both are TSA Carry-On compliant. The 34L doubles as a very large dayruck (think: shoes + lots of electronics, too many for GR1). If you’re 5’8” or under, we recommend the 34L.
Special Forces Grade Materials
The materials we choose are proven to thrive in war. YKK Zippers perform despite Middle East sandstorms, and 1000 denier CORDURA® is the preferred material for Special Forces rucks due to its strength to weight ratio and durability.
Badass American Construction
High stress points are strength tested at over 400 lbs. GR2 is capable of holding more weight than any human should ruck with.
TSA Carry-On Compliant
GR2 is a suitcase on your back. Pack everything you need and it still fits in the overhead compartment.
Easy to pack and organize. Special Forces medical rucks share a similar design.
External Slant Pocket
Slant pocket on the front of the ruck provides quick access to keys, snacks, and other small items.
Bombproof Laptop Compartment
Your laptop costs $2,000, that’s why we made the best, and toughest laptop bag ever built. The huge separate compartment next to your back is extra reinforced to securely take a laptop (of almost any size) into combat. And you can get it in and out easily.
Four internal pockets: two large mesh zippered pockets, one small go-to zippered pocket and one built-in Field Pocket pocket for additional volume.
Built-In Field Pocket
We built in a medium sized pocket with some additional volume capacity. It's like a built-in Field Pocket because there are two small mesh elastic pockets inside it.
4 rows of external and internal MOLLE webbing let you customize GR2 how you want. MOLLE is the same system used by our Armed Forces to attach life-saving sensitive equipment, such as ammunition.
Three internal pockets just like GR1: one large elastic pocket, one large mesh zippered pocket and one small go-to zippered pocket.
A removable, hard plastic frame sheet stabilizes the bombproof laptop compartment and allows you to carry more weight comfortably. If there were no frame sheet, the ruck would curl in on itself too much when you cinch it down on your shoulders.
We built a “false bottom” in the bombproof laptop compartment so that when you set your ruck down, your laptop won’t even notice. This adds labor to the build of the ruck, but it’s necessary for max function.
Silent Zipper Pulls
YKK zippers with silent, glove friendly zipper pulls constructed from parachute 550 cord. There is no good reason why zippers should make noise when rucking (or assaulting). Ours don’t.
Extra Padded Straps and Handle
Shoulder straps and top handle are extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably.
2" x 3" VELCRO
Allows you to customize your GR2 with the patch of your choice.
By military-spec submersion tests, waterproof means you could repeatedly submerge something and its contents would stay entirely dry. Our rucks are highly water resistant aka rainproof.
