GR1 Heritage from GORUCK – Overview

With more than 170 years of proven efficiency, the Martexin wax finish is applied to the GR1 Heritage for a retro canvas rucksack look with the durability you’d expect from a GR1. GR1 opens flat for easier packing and organizing and uses YKK zippers with silent, glove-friendly zipper pulls constructed from parachute 550 cord. To add to the rucksack’s durability, the Bombproof Laptop Compartment next to your back is extra reinforced and has a false bottom, so your laptop won’t even notice when you set your ruck down.

The rucksack is water-proof, TSA Compliant, and fits under the seat in front of you. The extra Padded shoulder straps and top handle let you carry heavier loads more comfortably, while the removable, rigid plastic frame sheet stabilizes the laptop compartment. GR1 has several pockets, including one large elastic pocket, one large mesh zippered pocket, and one small go-to pocket inside.

Heritage Kit Bag – USA

Special Forces and other units started using the Aviator’s Kit Bags as travel bags, pilot flight bags, and deployment bags because of their large opening at the top, which is big enough to fit body armor inside comfortably. GORUCK improved the aviator’s kit bag and added functionality for jumping out of airplanes, daily use, travel, and storage.
