Estimated stock: 0

Our Original Ruck, Specifically Built for Women

Our original piece of gear, designed and proven by Special Forces soldiers operating in Baghdad, and versatile enough for New York City. Now updated with women in mind. Each GR1® takes 4 hours to hand build in the USA, and comes with our Scars Lifetime Guarantee. But no matter what, the toughest part about GR1® is the person wearing it.


Opens Flat

Easy to pack and organize. Special Forces medical rucks share a similar design.

Countoured Padded Straps

Shoulder straps are countoured and extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably.

Silent Zipper Pulls

YKK zippers with silent, glove friendly zipper pulls constructed from parachute 550 cord.

Bombproof Laptop Compartment

The separate compartment next to your back is extra reinforced to securely take a laptop into combat.

Frame Sheet

A removable, hard plastic frame sheet stabilizes the laptop compartment and allows you to carry more weight comfortably.

False Bottom

We built a false bottom in the laptop compartment so that when you set your ruck down, your laptop won't even notice.

Multiple Pockets

3 internal pockets: 1 large elastic pocket, 1 large mesh zippered pocket, and 1 small go-to pocket.

External Slant Pocket

1 external slant pocket for quick access to keys snacks, and other small items.

MOLLE Attachments

3 rows of external and internal MOLLE webbing let you customize GR1 how you want.


Our rucks are highly water resistant aka rainproof.

Optimized for Hydration

Clip your hydration bladder into the interior MOLLE webbing with a carabiner and feed the hose through the exit port under the top handle of the ruck.

Perfect Travel Size

TSA Compliant and fits under the seat in front of you.

Special Forces operate in cities, mountains, jungles, and deserts the world over, facing the most difficult challenges known to man. Adversity spares neither gear nor people, and excellence is the only standard, adapting to the environment is the only means of survival, and winning is the only option.




The Special Forces curse clearly states, the more space you have, the more stuff you’ll pack. But, sometimes you need more stuff, and fit matters. The 21L GR1® is 18" tall and the 26L GR1® is 20" tall. The Classic 21L GR1® fits all shapes and sizes. If you’re ~6’+ and/or want 5 additional liters and 2” of additional height, go with the Larger 26L. When moving through airports, commuting, or rucking, the goal is for your ruck to be high on your back. No matter how tall you are, the 21L will rest 2” higher than the 26L.

When in doubt, go with the 21L.



The new 21L Rucksack for women. Complete with curved straps and now built out of a lighter weight fabric (500D). The fabric is thinner and less abrasive which is perfect for traveling, every day carry, and of course always looking cool.
