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.

Bullet Ruck Explained by Jason, GORUCK’s Founder

The 20 LB Ruck Plate and 3L Hydration Bladder fit perfectly. Plus everything else you won’t want in your pockets, while rucking. Like keys, jackets, and beer.

It’s an active dayruck. Throw the essentials in it, and go about your day.

Special Forces grade materials with customization options. Yes, badass GORUCK Carabiners do in fact make the Bullet Ruck tougher.

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

This is a feature found in Special Forces medical rucks = easy find it.

Water is life. Don’t even think about putting something else in that bladder.

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.

  • 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.


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

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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruggedness "defined"! As a professional scientist, I spend an inordinate amount of time outdoors, whether for work or fun. Rugged, dependable gear is not only essential, but in fact a safety consideration for me. The Bullet Ruck fits a niche between full-blown field pack and a knock-around day pack. There are three key components to the overall outstanding product that that the Bullet Ruck represents, which are 1) rugged, durable, nearly indestructible material and design, 2) features-to-size ratio is outstanding, with more features thoughtfully designed into the small size, and finally 3) size, which is nearly perfect. Yet again, a product executed with professionals in mind. Well done Monster!
