Goruck GR2 USA Backpack

For those men that need a backpack that can keep pace with their active lifestyle, Goruck should be one of your first ports of call when it comes to picking a new one. One of our top picks here at Coolector HQ would definitely be the GR2 USA Backpack because not only is it one of the toughest backpacks on the planet, it boasts the sort of stealthy aesthetic we always gravitate towards when it comes to choosing new accessories.

The Goruck GR2 USA Backpack has a price tag of $375 but, given the longevity and hard-wearing nature of this carry, which ensures it will last for many years to come, represents excellent value for money in our humble opinion and if you need a new backpack ready for any adventure or terrain, this one really will be tough to beat. It’s got all the pockets and all the organisation and is carry-on compliant, hands-free because, let’s face it, roll bags suck.

USA Made Excellence

Taking design inspiration from Special Forces medical rucks, the GR2® Backpack from Goruck is big, robust, and and built to travel outside of the airport. One ruck on your back with everything you need to do whatever you want. Effortlessly simple to pack and organise based upon Special Forces medical rucks which share a similar design. It boasts YKK zippers with silent, glove friendly zipper pulls constructed from parachute 550 cord.

The Goruck GR2 USA Backpack ($375) has four rows of external and internal MOLLE webbing which allows you to customise the GR2 however you want based upon the adventures you find yourself on. The pack comes with three internal pockets: one large elastic pocket, one large mesh zippered pocket, and one small go-to zippered pocket so will have all the storage space you need for the outdoor excursions you’ve got afoot.

Great for keeping your EDC in check, the GR2 has a slant pocket on the front which ensures you have rapid access to keys, snacks, and other small items such as your phone, wallet and headphones. It has a “bombproof” laptop compartment which is reinforced enough to be taken out on the battlefield so it will definitely keep your tech safe during your more civilian activities. Additionally, a removable, hard plastic frame sheet stabilises the laptop compartment and lets you carry more weight comfortably.

Top Class Features Throughout

Chock full of fine features which will ensure its versatility and performance in the field, it’s easy to see why the GR2 Backpack is one of Goruck’s most popular carries. It has a false bottom in the laptop compartment so that when you set your ruck down, your laptop won’t even notice and it is highly water resistant aka rainproof so you don’t need to worry when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Offering excellent comfort, the Goruck GR2 USA Backpack has shoulder straps and a top handle which are extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably. For anyone in need for the ultimate in reliable and no-nonsense carries this summer, the GR2 is undoubtedly one of the best in the business and well worthy of its $375 price tag.
