Zipper

GoRuck GR1

(1/2)

We see this as a huge bonus and we’ve really enjoyed them on the other GORUCK packs we’ve tested. It’s just nice to know you’re making as little noise as possible when you’re, say, walking into a hostel late at night or moving through a library. (Some of those librarians are not messing around.) Plus, they’re pretty nice zipper pulls

It’s a little stiff at the zipper sites. I imagine those will become less so with more use.

Strap

GoRuck GR1

(1/1)

” We have heard that these thicker straps can actually rub against T-shirts and create some pilling and rips, but we have yet to run into that issue. (And that’s with two years of testing the GR2, which is heavier and still has the same amount of abrasion on the straps.)

GoRuck 34L GR2

(1/5)

The one thing I wish came standard with it is compression straps-- the bag doesn't really need it to keep the gear close to your back, but I miss them for strapping gear (tripod) to the side of the bag. Managed to add some accessory straps to do this to the bottom instead, but this is normally where I would add a foam pad, or tent bag. May send the bag in to have the straps added some time down the road.

Carry-on

GoRuck GR1

(1/1)

No frills, it’s a handle that works—which is kind of like a metaphor for this pack... Whoa

GoRuck 34L GR2

(1/7)

This is a pack I bought for travel and id perfect for carry-on. Only complaint, the price to feature ratio is steep.

Excellent quality, comfortable, main compartment opens all the way, not many but well laid out internal pockets, very good protection for laptop. Stands up when placed on floor.

GoRuck 34L GR2

(1/5)

The capacity is profound, various pockets for organization and easy storage. The laptop sleeve is reenforced and spacious enough to fit extra accessories(wires, charger, etc). I’m 5’7 145LBs and the GR2 34L is a perfect selection for my size it fits nicely on my back and shoulders and the added on sternum strap helps with stability. Cheers to the Goruck team for not cutting corners and creating a spectacular bag

Size

GoRuck GR1

(1/1)

I needed a larger bag for my laptop, Notebooks, and ect… Both bags are built like tanks. I use the bullet as my tool bag. Go Ruck bags sit high and tight to the back. Great fit and weight distribution
