Built for Rucking

Purpose built for rucking and rucksack training. If you train hard on dirt, grass, and concrete, Rucker 4.0 is the tool for you to get stronger one rep and one mile at a time.

The Rucker® 4.0 is now upgraded to make it even easier to maintain your equipment. Gravity + USA Cast Iron Ruck Plate + Concrete = too many zipper failures. We can’t build better zippers to withstand this. Nobody can. So, we replaced the interior zippers with velcro and removed the front exterior zipper pocket.

It is the most comfortable rucksack ever built with upgraded padding on the top of the plate pocket for bear crawls. It also has ergonomic lumbar support and the fabric on the back panel and underside of straps does not cause friction burn.

    Features
    • Lumbar padding supports the natural curve of your back
    • Hi-vis reflective stripe across the front for safety
    • 4 padded handles: top, bottom, and both sides

    • Interior d-ring and hydration tube exit port under the top handle of the ruck
    • YKK zippers with silent, glove friendly zipper pulls constructed from parachute 550 cord
    • Opens flat so it's easy to pack and organize. Special Forces medical rucks share a similar design.

    • 25L:  2 Velcro mesh pockets, 2 Ruck Plate Pockets

    Ruck Plate Compatibility

    The Rucker® has been purpose-built for weighted PT and to be the best rucking backpack ever built. It has an elevated Ruck Plate® pocket that will securely fit a 10LB Ruck Plate, or a 20LB / 30LB (Standard) Ruck Plate®.

    The 25L Rucker® features two (2) Ruck Plate® pockets and can securely fit up to 75 lbs of plates utilizing one (1) 45LB Ruck Plate® (primary pocket) and one (1) 20LB or 30LB (Standard) Ruck Plate® (secondary pocket).

    Note: If you need more than 75 lbs (good on you) there’s plenty of room for a Filler Bag in the main rucksack compartment or you can always add a Sandbag for even more fun.

    45LB Ruck Plates® only strap in securely to the 25L.

     

    RUCKER 4.0 NEW FEATURES

    No Interior Zippers aka Weak Points

    You bang and throw your Rucker around, and crushed zippers are one of the main reasons we see rucks at Scars. All interior pockets are now VELCRO closure with enormous pull tabs so you can work them even with gloves on, even when it’s cold out.

    Improved Interior Padding

    We took a lesson from the Ruck Plate Carrier and beefed up the top padding of the interior Ruck Plate Pocket for when it’s time to do bear crawls or burpees and the ruck will naturally slide forward a bit on your back. More padding is a better solution.

    Streamlined Front Panel

    Gravity + Ruck Plates + Concrete = too many zipper failures. We use the best, burliest YKK Zippers on the planet but they still crush under your loads. We removed the slant pocket to minimize the risk of failure.

    Tested & Proven

    These aren't air brushed models, these are our friends whooping it on right out back behind HQ. Living the life.

    Zero Irritation When Rucking Shirtless

    Say goodbye to friction burn. 210D HT (High Tenacity) CORDURA® on the back panel and underside of the shoulder straps does NOT cause friction burn on your skin and it plays well with less durable fabrics like merino wool.

    Elevated Ruck Plate® Pocket

    The 20L Rucker® has a single plate pocket and securely holds a 10LB, 20LB or 30LB Ruck Plate® (for Rucker). The 25L size features 2 plate pockets, one that holds 20LB or 30LB Ruck Plates for Rucker and one that holds a 45LB Plate, 20LB (GR1), 30LB (GR1). This means your rucker can hold up to 75 lbs of weight.

    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.

    Training Sternum Strap (Removable + Adjustable)

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

    Bottom Drain Holes

    2 grommets on the bottom of the ruck to drain water for when you find yourself doing hydro burpees in the ocean, lake, or fountain.

    Hip Belt Compatible

    Complete with side MOLLE to integrate perfectly with the Padded Hip Belt. A hip belt allows you to distribute heavy loads to your hips over long periods of time (think the GORUCK Challenge or Star Course) plus keeps the ruck stable during Ruck PT.

    Developing Rucker 4.0

    The problem we’ve run into is happening on our own driveways. After you do your buy-in ruck, then push-ups, it’s time to take your ruck off and do flutter kicks. My friends lack discipline to control their gear (Chris, Matt — looking at you). You slam your Rucker on the concrete, and there’s a Ruck Plate in it. Of course you set it down, front panel first because that’s easier, and it’s concrete. So you have three zippers that will eventually get crushed, over time. Gravity + USA Cast Iron Ruck Plate + Concrete >> we can’t build better zippers to withstand this. Nobody can. Then you grab it again, and push it above your head and do your flutter kicks. With the Rucker 4.0, we’ve kept the main zip because it’s not under threat from the concrete, but we removed those internal zippers so there’s less to go wrong, or to fail. We put enormous pull tabs on the Velcro-closure interior pockets so you can work them even with gloves on, even when it’s cold out.

    And we took a lesson from the Ruck Plate Carrier and beefed up the top padding of the interior Ruck Plate Pocket for when it’s time to do bear crawls or burpees and the ruck will naturally slide forward a bit on your back. More padding is a better solution.

    We hope you enjoy the comfort this extra padding provides so you can find discomfort in other ways. And we hope the added resilience to your Rucker 4.0 by making it even more of a purpose-built tool keeps you in the fight for all the days, weeks, and months of every year for the rest of your life.
