Bullet Ruck - 10L (Black)

Bullet Ruck - 10L (Black)


We build a lot of rucks (like GR1) that hold all the weight. The Bullet Ruck is simpler and more streamlined. So, while its stress points are also proven at up to 400 lbs, we recommend a 20 LB Ruck Plate and some water.

Or just throw the essentials in it, and go about your day.

Built for two purposes: (1) Active Dayruck. Throw your stuff in it and go. If you own a GR2 and want to pack a more streamlined dayruck, this is your huckleberry. (2) Rucking. It perfectly houses a 3L hydration bladder and 20 LB Ruck Plate. This setup is a solid start if you’re looking to get into rucking, and it also works at a GORUCK Light when you want to put your fitness to the test.

When in Doubt, Sizing Guide

  • Due to its streamlined build, the Bullet Ruck works for all shapes and sizes.

Primary Features

  • Single compartment with a built in pocket for your 20 LB Ruck Plate.

  • VELCRO® retention loop with a snap button on the interior keeps your Standard Source Hydration bladder in place.

  • External slant pocket provides quick access to keys, snacks, and other small items.

  • 2” x 3” VELCRO® on front allows you to customize the 10L Bullet with the patch of your choice (patch is not included).

  • Opens flat for easy packing and maximum organization – this is a feature found in Special Forces medical rucks.

  • Shoulder straps: ½” inch thick foam, 2 ½” wide. Compared to GR1’s, which are ⅝” thick and 2 ¾” wide. Note: foam in the shoulder straps is a combination of lower density foam (softer) laminated to higher density foam (harder). The lower density is against the wearer's body for additional comfort.

  • Padded back panel for additional comfort next to your back.

  • Padded bottom for increased durability. Do not use as a slam ruck, though. (Yes, people ask us this all the time).

  • Drain hole at the bottom sheds excess water, in the off chance you jump in a lake and water finds its way into your ruck.

  • Designed to sit high on your back, placing most of the weight on the shoulders and back (the preferred technique when rucking because these are large muscle groups).

  • Ruck Plates. The 20 LB Ruck Plate fits perfectly because we designed the Bullet’s interior around it. The 10 LB Ruck Plate will also fit, when you turn it sideways - Expert Plates (20 LB and 30 LB) and the 30 LB Ruck Plate are too wide, and will not fit. Check out the Rucker or GR1 for maximum Ruck Plate integration options.

  • 3 rows of external MOLLE webbing sized to fit a GR1 Field pocket and other MOLLE friendly accessories, like badass Carabiners (yes, they make the Bullet Ruck even tougher).

  • Weight: 1.4 lbs. Toughness factor is a million times that.

  • Silent Zipper Pulls. We hate the annoying sound of zipper heads hitting each other over and over again while we’re on the move. Don’t you?

  • YKK Zippers. These are the only zippers you should ever trust. Companies looking to save a buck here or there use inferior ones. We use the best on the market.

  • Scars Lifetime Guarantee. Our team in Bozeman, Montana is standing by should you do something exceptionally awesome at your Bullet’s expense. Ruck Hard, Play Hard.

Bullet Ruck - 10L (Black) is rated 4.783783783783784 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use for EDC and hikes: Can fit more than it seems! Switched from the GR1 21L (GR0) to Bullet 10L for everyday use. My macbook 13" in a neoprene case fits in the main compartment, and I use the bladder compartment to fit my bjj/workout clothes. The drain holes are great for temporarily storing the damp/wet rashguards and shorts that I rinse after working out. It is compact and perfect as a day pack. I use it also as my daypack during travel (with the GR2 being my go-to travel backpack). I use the Bullet like a long packing if I don't have any other organization. Or lay it flat at the back the GR2. There are smaller travel-daypacks, but I prefer to use the same pack that I already have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little ruck I bought this to use as a hydration pack for mountain biking and as a day pack. It fits every thing I need neatly inside the ruck for both of those activities. The heavy duty materials that the ruck is made from are a bit heavy and stiff for mountain biking. However the more that you use it the more that the ruck breaks in and contours your body, so after you break it in, it is fine. The one thing that I will mention is, the shoulder straps very close to your neck. I am 5'9" with an average neck size and I have to let the ruck sit lower on my back to keep it from rubbing on my neck on long rides. All in all it is a great little ruck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullet Proof, Bullet Ruck I actually bought this pack for my better half, but I have used it a few times myself. I have used packs from standard issue while in the military to some of the most expensive packs on the market. NOTHING compares to the well-thought-out design, and darn near literally bullet-proof construction of every product you guys sell. The bullet ruck is big enough for just about anything you would need for 48 hours of use. For such a low-profile pack there is a ton of space. If you're looking for a pack that is very reasonably priced and built to last a lifetime, and from a company that is as American as it gets, you can't go wrong with GORUCK. BUY ONCE, CRY ONCE!!
