The Echo is a small dayruck that thrives in cities, when rucking (with lighter weight) to train, at OCR’s, and at GORUCK Light. It protects a small laptop with force and is a pack light favorite.

Primary Features

  • Built in the USA of military-grade, highly water-resistant materials.
  • Two compartments: one main, one laptop next to your back.
  • Main compartment opens flat, internal pocket layout allows for optimal organization.
  • 15″ tall bombproof compartment next to your back is extra reinforced to securely take a small laptop into combat.
  • Feed your bladder hose through a VELCRO® closed opening underneath the top handle of the ruck
  • External slant pocket provides quick access to keys, snacks, and other small items.
  • 2” x 3” VELCRO® on front allows you to customize the Echo with the patch of your choice (patch is not included).
  • The Echo’s low profile and small size make it ideal as a “go bag” that fighter pilots keep in the cockpit with them – housing all the essentials they hope they never have to use. While rucking, its low profile means the weight stays closer to your back, which is the preferred technique.
  • Opens flat for easy packing and maximum organization – this is a feature found in Special Forces medical rucks.
  • Shoulder straps are extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably.
  • 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).
  • 2 rows of external and internal MOLLE webbing sized to fit a RR Field pocket and other MOLLE friendly accessories.
  • Scars Lifetime Guarantee: Ruck Hard, Play Hard.

When in Doubt, Sizing Guide

  • If you’re under 5 ft 7in. (1.7m) and want a small laptop/training dayruck, the Echo is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Shadowfax, but it rides me, not vice versa No, your eyes are not cheated by some spell; that IS one of the Mearas. Praises are highly sung throughout Middle Earth and current Earth about all GR packs, and for good reason. I should name this backpack Shadowfax - he is the lord of all backpacks and has been my friend through many dangers. I am a 5'0 female and have taken this Echo everywhere since 2013; through a GoRuck Light, hiking up mountains in Lake Tahoe and Hawaii, into the ocean, around the beach, to work, to Disneyland, to England, the Crossfit Games (just to watch, unfortunately), and to hunt for Pokemon. Anyways, you get the picture. Many dangers. 3 years. And it's still going strong. I mainly use it to lug around my Crossfit gear and my 13' MacBook Pro, and toss it around all the time even with my laptop in it (though I toss it a bit more gently). I love how it stands straight up even on the ground if you pack it right. One of the shoulder straps is showing wear around the seam, and one of the zipper pull covers has fallen off, but that doesn't affect its functionality at all. Elvish horses don't live forever and neither do backpacks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goruck Echo Black Goruck Echo is short and slim so that it perfectly fits in an urban environment (Downtown Vancouver). I use it as EDC (i.e. drawings, pens, and rain jacket) carrier along with TAD Gear OP1 inside the Goruck Echo. Overall, I am satisfied with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Pink Hikers I love it! My 8 year old wants to look just like Mommy, so I would love a mini version of mine for my little sweetheart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 2nd chance ever I was a little bit disappointed by a first delivery where the backpack that I received had a flaw that probably had gone unnoticed when preparing the shipment. But after returning it, I had it exchanged by an absolutely perfect brand-new Echo rucksack. I would like to highlight that the second shipment was incredibly fast, as I live in Spain and it took less than two days to get here. Simply fantastic. Downside is that, in addition to the first shipping costs, I have had to pay customs duties twice, so the overall price has been a little expensive for me. But I hope I will enjoy this superb work of art that is the GORUCK Echo forever.
