GORUCK just released their latest ruck, the Bullet Ruck and it’s available in Black or Sand colors.
Designed to fit seamlessly to encompass a hydration bladder, the Bullet Ruck provides the most compact storage available in our rucksacks. Great for day outings, the Bullet Ruck can tightly pack your gear, carry your bladder, and attach up to a GR2 Field Pocket with MOLLE on the front.

Interested in doing a GORUCK Challenge but want to start a little smaller? That’s what the GORUCK Light was made for. We hear it’s not necessarily easier, just shorter and with less weight. You will be tested but remember, it’s all mental.
- 4-5 hours
- 7-10 miles
"If you can do a mud-run or a 5K, you can do Light. Our Cadre will introduce you to the power of a team."
Huckberry has a week long deal that brings the GORUCK Light down to $55, but you have to act fast. Want to see if a Light is in your area? Check the GORUCK Events Map.
Don’t forget to check out our write-ups of the GORUCK Challenge. Bryan was in Class 050 and I (Mike) was in Class 031.

GORUCK just launched some new rucks. Well, not really new but a different take on what they currently offer. This is the new Slick line.
They have no exterior MOLLE webbing, no Velcro (for a patch), and no exit port for your hydration bladder’s tube.
"Tip: SK26 is less identifiable which makes it more covert than GR1. And while you’re using it as a daypack anywhere in the world, that’s important stuff."
Check out their full line if you’re interested:
They look good and I’m sure there are a lot of people who like what GORUCK offers but don’t have a need for external MOLLE. In fact, I don’t really use the MOLLE on my GR1 on a daily basis but I do like that it’s there (Mike).
"The word ‘slick’ is commonly used in the most elite Special Operations Units to mean suit and tie as a uniform: full suit and tie, preferably grey or black, nice shoes and nice watch, lookin’ like an agent. Slick rucks mirror this image, wherever you are. And they conceal beer pretty well, too."
