Talking Points: Rucker 4.0

Are you familiar with rucking? Rucking, essentially walking around with a weighted backpack, is a great way to simultaneously build strength and endurance while enjoying the outdoors. With the right pack, you can train anywhere, anytime. The Rucker 4.0 from GORUCK combines high-quality materials with engineered comfort; its design ensures you can safely add weight to your workouts (walk-outs?). Whether you train hard on dirt, grass and concrete, Rucker 4.0 is an effective tool that's purpose-built to get you stronger one step at a time.

The Rucker 4.0 features four padded handles on the top, bottom, and sides to facilitate suitcase carries, overhead presses, overhead lunges and thrusters. The interior elevated plate pocket keeps weight high and secure on your back–the optimal position for Rucking.


210D HT (High Tenacity) CORDURA® lines the back panel and underside of the shoulder straps–this material is less abrasive, so it won't irritate skin or chew up delicate apparel. The straps are fully padded to offset heavy loads and an additional 10mm of EVA foam padding along the bottom section of the back panel supports the natural curve of your back.

Battle-Tested Materials

GORUCK has overbuilt the Rucker 4.0 with Special Forces-grade materials that have been proven in some of the harshest conditions known to man by some of the toughest individuals on the planet: United States Army Special Forces soldiers operating in war zones. The primary fabric used is the preferred material for Special Forces rucksacks due to its strength to weight ratio and durability. The Rucker 4.0's high-stress points are strength tested at over 400 lbs.
