Let’s review the GR1 Rucksacks from GORUCK.
When it comes to rucksacks, the first name that comes to mind is GORUCK. GORUCK specializes in making durable, quality, versatile, and rugged rucksacks, and now they are bringing back GR1 – exclusively overbuilt in the USA.
GR1 is irreplaceable. To put it simply, there is no other rucksack/backpack in the market that comes close to what GR1 is. It is rainproof, comfortable, easy to carry, has a lifetime guarantee, and performs both in office and outdoor settings.
Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:
GR1 Rucksacks – Overview
GR1 opens flat to make it more manageable to pack and organize. It is excellent for light travel, where you can easily see the entire interior and accommodates some personal and office items. There is a sizeable elastic sleeve on the main compartment’s back wall and three rows of MOLLE webbing across the top. It also has a bombproof laptop compartment which is well guarded with sturdy padding on both sides, a false bottom, and a plastic sheet frame on the back. Special Forces medical rucks use the same similar design.
There is a large zipped mesh pocket on the front wall of the main compartment that extends the bag’s width up to 28 cm deep. There is also a smaller zipped pocket for smaller items, while the top of the main compartment has a hydration tube port. On the bag’s front face, there is a large flat pocket that can accommodate bulky items. To stabilize the laptop compartment, a removable, rigid plastic frame sheet is placed, enabling you to bring more weight conveniently.
GR1 comes in two versions – the 21L, which is 11.5 x 18 x 5.5 inches at 2.9 lbs, and the 26L, which is 12 x20 x 6.75 inches at 3.2 lbs. The fabric used in GR1 is 1000D Condura, and the back panel and shoulder straps are also stuffed with closed-cell foam. The amount of coating in the stitching is incredibly made while the YKK zippers have silent, glove-friendly zipper pulls which are astonishingly reliable and dependable.
