Ruck Plate - 45 LB is rated 4.7826 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be sized better The weight is fantastic. The handles and edges are smooth, the finish is durable, and it's a relentless bit of kit. I often carry it daily in my ~4 mile commute. I only have one complaint: it's too thick to fit in the laptop compartment. Many of us like to carry ruck plates in the laptop compartments (if our rucks have them) but the 45# plate is simply too thick to make rucking comfortable. If it were thinner (and wider), the issue could be overcome. Further, for those who carry plates on the inside, making it wider would allow a better fit in the inside pocket. But that's the only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruck plates have increased my load capacity A while back based on recommends from a couple friends I got the Rucker and 2 10lb and 1 20lb ruckplates. Previously I had been destroying cheap backpacks carrying paver stones. The Rucker more than met my expectations, and the plates are awesome as they distribute weight evenly, fit snug, and don't shift around at critical moments. I bought the 45 lb to compliment the set I have, as I wanted to be able to build a carry weight combo of anywhere from 10 to 65 lbs. Love these plates. The hand holds are great allowing you to use as small dumbells or hand weights. Goruck equipment is more expensive than other options, but I will continue to buy it based on the quality, workmanship, and the fact it's made here in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast Plate Feeling like your walks around town just aren't giving you the challenge that your body craves? Think that your slog to and from the grocery store with a lightweight backpack is just plain ridiculous? Then you need to slam a dam 45lb Ruck Plate in your GR1 and find that pain that makes us stronger. Menial tasks, check. Trekking training, check. Slowing your walking pace so that you can finally match the pace of your girlfriend when you're out for a post-dinner stroll, check.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb Proof Low Pro Rucking weight! I am a USSOF veteran with 4 combat deployments with 1st Ranger Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment and I love these rucking plates. I purchased the 45lbs. plate and the 10lbs. plate for myself and my wife. I have been using the 45lbs. plate in my well worn Radio Ruck from GoRuck and have been using it for a couple months now. I have nothing bad to say about these plates, they are fantastic and my favorite thing about them is how little space they take up in my ruck. I wish I would have had these babies when I was still in, would have made training much more simple. Do yourself a favor and buy as many of these bad dudes as you can afford. Keep doing what you do GoRuck, you have a lifelong customer in me. RLTW, SUA SPONTE!
