Note: 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 but not technically waterproof. 1000D Cordura protects internal contents from rain – this and its strength to weight ratio are why 1000D Cordura is the preferred material for Special Forces rucksacks.

GR1 is our original piece of gear and the Godfather rucksack. Designed for maximum versatility, it thrives in the grind of the city or the office commute, on a day hike or on a short overnight trip. GR1 is comfortable in any environment imaginable and our most popular piece of gear.

Tip: Feedback from Special Forces soldiers who have used GR1 in combat is that its durability and low profile relative to volume capacity make it an ideal assaulter’s pack.

Review by SilverFox

I'll be honest I got sticker shock the first time I looked at these bags, but having owned one for a while now I am satisfied with my choice. The bag is practical, and extremely tough- built to be beat up, and the SCARS warranty that comes on them is outstanding. After 3 GORUCK Challenges, and numerous training rucks carrying 30-40lbs of bricks in the bag I had an issue with the shoulder straps on my bag, I sent SCARS an email and they sent me a shipping label to send it in for refurbishment. I put a real beating on this gear- it doesn't come apart, and if there is an issue they stand behind it 100%. That kind of quality and customer service is worth the $$$ in my opinion

Great..with a catch

Review by DB

This is a truly awesome pack..indestructible and smartly designed..the one is not ergonomically designed (like backpacking packs) to carry heavy will feel it after several hours..I have been an avid hiker/mountaineer for over a decade..50 pounds in this pack is not comfortable..but..doable..

American made and tough as hell.

Review by digitalchris

Myself and many others have used these rucks for every type of event possible. They are built to survive and look nice to boot. Yes they are pricey but so is replacing a ruck or pack every few months as it falls apart. These will not fail you. Make sure you think about the size that fits you best and what you will actually need to be hauling.
