GP regulars are likely familiar with our love for GORUCK products. Thanks to a US Special Forces vet founder and a mission to create gear tough enough for city streets and war zones, the brand’s packs, boots, apparel and training items are equal parts stylish and reliable. Early this year, GORUCK teamed up with one of our favorite retailers, Huckberry, to roll out a limited-edition version of its classic GR1 pack, and it is once again available.
Dubbed “Slick,” this version boasts many of the same features that make its older brother such a hit. We’re talking military-grade YKK zippers and 1000-denier Cordura fabric, a bombproof 17-inch laptop compartment and an open-flat design with internal mesh pockets for easy stashing of all your go-to gear. The pack also boasts room for a hydration reservoir and extra padding in the shoulder straps to ease heavier loads.
One notable difference? This collab eschews the original GR1’s MOLLE webbing, which is handy for daisy-chaining a bunch of extra gear to the outside of the pack but not quite as, well, Slick.
