Military garments and gear have long stood as some of the toughest items on earth, needing to stand up to the world’s most hostile conditions and requiring a degree of reliability that operators can trust with their lives. So, it’s frankly unsurprising that when looking to engineer an ultra-hardwearing EDC backpack, that Jacksonville, Florida’s GORUCK turned to mil-spec bags for inspiration.

Wanting to combine the rugged construction and immense utility of a traditional military rucksack, in a more fashion-forward package that doesn’t resemble a MOLLE-laden multi-day assault pack, GORUCK has delivered the GR1 1000D Slick backpack. Heavily influenced by the layout of Special Forces medical rucks, the GR1 Slick is crafted from ultra-durable 1,000-denier CORDURA and features a double-layered CORDURA base and 550 paracord zipper pull-equipped YKK zippers throughout. Made in America and backed by a full lifetime warranty, each GR1 Slick bag is strength tested to accommodate at least 400lbs, and sports a padded shoulder strap design that distributes weight evenly across the shoulders and back. Produced in coyote or blacked-out color options, this particular version of the GR1 Slick was born out of a limited-edition collaboration between GORUCK and Huckberry and is adorned with a co-branded leather patch. Available now, the Huckberry x GORUCK GR1 1000D Slick (available in 21L or 26L) Backpack is priced at $295.
