GORUCK’s Legendary Mil-Spec GR1 Gets Turned Into A Sleek Urban EDC Pack

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.
