GORUCK’s legendary GR1 backpack was already the toughest backpack around thanks to its literally bombproof laptop compartment and rugged 1,000D CORDURA construction, but that apparently wasn’t tough enough for the perfectionists at GORUCK. So the brand has done its first-ever collaboration with EDC experts Carryology to make a GR1 that’s even more rugged.
The limited-edition GORUCK GR1 x Carryology Guerrilla X has the same design and features as the GR1 you know and love but is now made from ultra-tough Dyneema fabric. The material is 15 times stronger than steel and 40% stronger than Kevlar, making this backpack far tougher than you would ever possibly need it to be. You’re also still getting the OG’s bombproof laptop compartment, Special Forces grade YKK zippers (built to withstand Middle East sandstorms), and a lifetime guarantee. And as an added bonus, the bag includes room for a 3 L hydration bladder with a hydration tube exit port, along with extra padded straps for heavier loads. Available in 21L and 26L sizes, the GORUCK GR1 x Carryology Guerrilla X is priced at $525.
