The most streamlined and efficient way to add weight to your workouts. The Ruck Plate Carrier™ (aka RPC) houses a 20 LB or a 30 LB 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.

The Ruck Plate Carrier™ is a weight vest killer. Your intensity during workouts should be the reason you feel like you’re suffocating — not your equipment.

Embrace the suck.


Ruck Plate® Pocket

Designed to securely hold 20 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.

Better Than a Weight Vest

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.

Simple & Streamlined

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

Extra Padded Straps & Top

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

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.

Included Adjustable Sternum Strap

Keeps the RPC secure without constricting breath or movement and is adjustable by the MOLLE on the straps. Example: While doing burpees, you may want it a little tighter. While running, a little looser. Easy adjustment, on the fly.



Because the Ruck Plate Carrier™ is best worn high and tight on your back, we're offering three (3) sizes to ensure a proper fit for all body types.

If you're of average build or used to rucking with a 20L Rucker, we recommend the Standard RPC. Smaller frames, go with the Small RPC. If you're bigger or used to rucking with a 25L Rucker, go with the Large RPC. The size of the actual plate pocket is the same on all Ruck Plate Carriers, with the straps being the only difference.

Don't overthink it, we've found that the Standard RPC will work best for most people.

The Ruck Plate Carrier™ is purpose built for weighted PT and has an elevated Ruck Plate® pocket that will securely fit a 20LB or 30LB Ruck Plate®.
