The Padded Hip Belt keeps your ruck in place with the added comfort of hip padding. A padded stabilizer belt will pull the bottom of your ruck inward around your hips or belly and keep it in place, not allowing it to ride upward over your head and shoulders. It will also minimize side-to-side sway and stabilize the load in a position centered on your back. When rucking significant distances or time, such as at a GORUCK Heavy (24+ hours), having a Padded Hip Belt lets you rest your shoulders and back from time to time, and will provide some much sought after comfort.

  • Attaches to side webbing via MOLLE attachment system
  • Padding built into the belt on your hips
  • Transfers pressure out across your body, minimizing rubbing
  • Solid 2" military grade buckle

MOLLE - Padded Hip Belt is rated 4.6522 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect belt for those of us without perfect backs Got it. Installed it. Beefy. Works great. Easy to remove and store! Prior to my GR1 and belt combo, I was using an issued Camelbak BFM with the padded velcro hip belt. This belt is WAY easier to install and remove than that monstrosity... I would say this takes about 3 minutes tops if you're slow. Works great for moving the weight off your shoulders and back, and onto your hips. Cinch it down tight, do the hip belt nice and snug, then loosen the shoulder straps and enjoy the freedom and easy breathing! I know we don't really use hip belts in ops (depending), but on the civilian side they sure are nice.... TLDR: Get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my shoulders on a week-long hike I've been rucking for several years, both as a GORUCK employee (full disclosure) and now as a private citizen/GRT. I decided to take on a week-long hike of about 100 miles and the hip belt was a life saver. Really helps distribute the weight properly when you've loaded your ruck to the max. Not 100% necessary for standard GORUCK events but a game-changer for longer trips in my opinion! So glad to have added this to my ruck for this hike. Minimal additional weight but absolute sturdiness and quality. Was also able to position belt slightly lower on MOLLE and pair it with side pockets too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good addition to my Ruck I originally ordered my Ruck without the straps. I learned that it moved around too much for my liking, so I ordered the hip belt to keep it in place. I received it in a timely fashion There are two sets of MOLLE loops to install the belt. I used the ones furthest away from my back. Wore the belt once and the webbing rubbed a raw spot on my side. Not good. I moved the belts to the set of MOLLE loops closest to my back and that put the rough webbing on the ruck and not on me. Awesome! Where it really shined was during an event. We had to hit the ground quickly with rucks in place. I noticed that people WITHOUT the belts had to deal with the rucks sliding up their backs and, in some cases, hitting them in the back of the head. Those of us with hip belts had our rucks stay put. This also helps take some of the weight off of your shoulders and put it on your hips. That helps. BOTTOM LINE: Is it sexy? No. Is it functional/helpful? You bet. I'd buy it again.
