Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only way to ruck Was hoping this would make rucking easy. It doesnt. What it does do is concentrate the weight and make it a nicer load to carry. I was an old school brick guy and the plate seems to make life easier but not easy. Make sense? I spent a day or two fonding the right spot and settled on in the laptop compartment with cut down yoga bricks putting the plate at the tipping point of the curvature of my spine. Makes it ride without chafing or causing any issues. Seems to make pushups, bear crawls, and other good living much more manageable. Is it necessary? No, but it makes life easier. If you are serious about goruck getchusome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for training If you are in the military there is a strong chance you have rucked. However what you may dread about rucking is the constant packing of random stuff to weigh your ruck down. I don't know how many times I've scoured through my stuff to find something heavy to weigh it down. That dread for me lead to avoiding ruck marches all together at any cost and I knew that wasn't good. So I bought this simple tool to illivieate that stress and hit the road. This simple plate is probably one of the best tools in my inventory to help increase my rucks both in frequency and in distance! It is a must buy for any soldier and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Plate- Makes it easy to Ruck! Bought this ruck plate to train for the Heavy race. It's easy and although I didn't purchase the rucks offered via goruck it velcro attached with (industry velcro) to the webbing on the inside of the mystery ranch asap in a minute. If you're looking to get into rucking and want to purchase a plate-ruck combo I would buy one of the GR series rucks they offer via GO-ruck with the plate due to the compartment already set up to hold the plate. Had the Mystery Ranch bag already for unrelated training purposes so tried to save the dollars and not purchase another bag etc. Saw lots of folks at the Light Event Rucking with a plate and the GR1. Asked a number of folks who thought it had worked pretty slick. Good Luck Have a great event!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from American Manufacturing at its FINEST For the group, you know what a RUCK plate is and what it is for, but for those of you who are new, don't yet know, thinking of doing a RUCK; I'm going to let you in on a secret. See the magic in these plates come from their inherent ability to transform an ordinary, average person into an outstanding piece of humanity that knows the value of their team and never to leave a person behind. This plate comes with a promise, a promise of delivering back to the user 100% of what they deliver to the plate. This is NOT and ordinary piece of steel, this is a GORUCK plate- experience the difference, I dare you.
