It's Not a Backpack, It's a Rucksack.

Rucking is the foundation of Special Forces training and where we learned the way of the ruck.

Proven in the toughest environments in the world and built to Army Special Forces standards, GORUCK rucksacks are the absolute best for everyday carry, rucking, and traveling. Every ruck we build is backed by our Scars Lifetime Guarantee.

Training Rucksacks


We believe rucking is the world's best exercise, and the Rucker is the best rucksack for rucking. Just add weight (we prefer Ruck Plates®) to your rucksack, and start training. With ergonomic lumbar support and an all-new, less abrasive fabric, the Rucker® is truly the gym on your back.

It also makes a solid pack to loan a friend who is new to rucking and thinks their cheap book bag will be just fine — which it will be, till it won’t

    The Way of the Ruck

    The Easy Life Is Not for Us

    Special Forces Materials

    Designed and proven in the harshest conditions known to man by Special Forces soldiers operating in war zones. The materials we choose thrive in any environment - 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.

    Tested & Proven

    No other company systematically abuses their own gear like we do via GORUCK Events. Tested and continuously improved for over a decade at thousands of events, GORUCK rucksacks have consistently proven to be the toughest in the world.

    Scars Lifetime Guarantee

    With GORUCK Events happening all over the world and a high-touch promise like SCARS, we have nowhere to hide, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The guarantee we make to you is the same that we make to our buddies headed to war: GORUCK gear is built to Special Forces life or death quality standards. If you break it, we fix it.

    Exacting Standards of Performance & Durability

    Double stitching for extra support in the seams.

    Reinforced bartacks & backtacks at high stress points strength tested at over 400 lbs.

    Dual density foam in the shoulder straps.

    Backpacks Break and They're Cheap

    A Rucksack is Not a Backpack.

    Our rucks have a cult following because they carry a lot of weight comfortably, they keep the weight stable when you’re moving, and they have a lifetime guarantee.

    We don't compromise when it comes to the materials or construction. They are always built to meet the standard.
