The Most Streamlined Way to Add Weight to Your Workout

The Ruck Plate Carrier™ (aka RPC) houses a Ruck Plate® (sold separately) and is worn high and tight on your back for natural stability. Your chest stays open so you can breathe better to push harder, and it’s easy to clean — just hang to dry.

Your intensity during workouts should be the reason you feel like you’re suffocating — not your equipment or weight plate carrier.

RPC Features

Zero Irritation When Rucking Shirtless

Say goodbye to friction burn. All-new 210D HT (High Tenacity) CORDURA® on the back panel and underside of the shoulder straps is less abrasive and doesn't irritate skin or chew up delicate apparel (looking at you, merino wool).

Ergonomic Lumbar Support

An additional 10mm of EVA foam padding along the bottom section of the back panel supports the natural curve of your back. It’s raised up, protects you from friction from seams on pants, belts or Tough Leggings or anything back there. And if it’s exposed to your skin, that’s no problem either.

Increased (2x) Top Lid Padding

We doubled the amount of foam (now 1" thick) on the top lid to provide complete protection while doing Bear Crawls and burpees, especially when the included Training Sternum Strap is loosened.

Durable Ballistic Nylon Bottom Panel

A reinforced layer of 1050D Ballistic CORDURA® on the bottom panel ensures your weight plate carrier doesn't take an unnecessary beating from gravity when you're smoked after a tough workout.

Padded Ruck Plate® Pocket

Designed to securely hold20 or 30 LB Ruck Plates high and tight on your back with an extra secure hook and loop closure. Aka you can hold it upside down and it won’t budge.

Extra Padded Straps + Top Lid

Shoulder straps are extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably. Plus, tons of padding (1" thick) at the top to protect during dynamic movements. Yes, that means Bear Crawls and burpees.

Keeps Chest Open

Your chest stays open, it’s easier to clean and won’t stink, doesn’t beat up your chin while doing pushups, and looks a lot better. Free your chest with Rule #1: Always Look Cool.

Training Sternum Strap (Removable + Adjustable)

Keeps the RPC secure without constricting breath or movement and is adjustable by the MOLLE on the straps.

Easy to Clean

There’s no spacer mesh on the RPC so it doesn’t absorb all the stink. Just spray it down with a hose and scrub with soapy water if needed. Hang to dry.

Simple + Streamlined

Just a Ruck Plate® on your back, no zippers, no extra straps or extra MOLLE. Always look cool.

Developing the Ruck Plate Carrier™

We took the material changes and the lumbar support that we introduced on the Rucker 3.0 and tried them on the Ruck Plate Carrier - a logical step. It was early in the quarantine, I had too much time on my hands to move heavy stuff around (if that’s possible) and so I put this new RPC 2.0 through the ringer which basically means I just integrated it into my daily thrasher sessions that helped me stay sane dealing with our kids. I say that with love, and because it’s real talk (God Bless teachers).

Zero friction burns mean you can use it shirtless (or with a sports bra if you’re a badass babe), it’s minimalist and easy to scale up with Sandbags, and when training calls for a 400 meter run around the block, it’s fine to have no weight but kinda weak sauce. Life is better with 20 or 30 extra pounds. Might as well get stronger while you get faster.
