When carrying a backpack, comfort is the most important feature for most and the GR3® definitely doesn’t disappoint. It has a padded top handle and two padded side handles, ideal for carrying through the airport or pulling out of the overhead bin and the shoulder straps are extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably.

Ideally suited for outdoor adventure, the GR3® from Goruck allows you to clip your hydration bladder into the interior d-ring with a carabiner and feed the hose through the exit port under the top handle of the ruck to keep hydrated out in the wild.
