The Best Weight to Ruck


  • Ductile iron ore
  • Break strength of approximately 90,000 lbs
  • Powder coated matte black (rust resistant)
  • Ergonomic, rounded edges and handle openings


  • Designed to fit in Rucker Ruck Plate® pockets
  • Super-wide grab and go handles
  • Workout without a ruck



Recommended Rucksack Compatibility

Our standard of compatibility is that Ruck Plates® will be stable and secure in your Ruck with minimal shifting.


*45LB Ruck Plates® will fit into the interior elastic pocket, but do not strap in vertically so they are better suited for upright rucking, not GORUCK Challenges (think bear crawls).

**Because Bullet Rucks do not strap Ruck Plates® in vertically, they are better suited for upright rucking, not GORUCK Challenges (again, think bear crawls) – though we have seen them at GORUCK Lights over the years, none the worse for the wear.



You want the 10 LB if you are:

  • Under 150lbs. and signed up for a GORUCK Light
  • New to rucking

You want the 20 LB if you are:

You want the 30 LB if you are:

  • Over 150lbs. and signed up for a GORUCK Tough or Heavy
  • Comfortable rucking 20 LB already

You want the 45 LB if you are:

  • Looking to train harder than you perform (train with a 45 LB, use a 30 LB at your Challenge)
  • Comfortable rucking 30 LB already

Ruck Plates® are compact and fit seamlessly in our rucksacks for superior stability. Made in the USA to exacting standards of quality and craftsmanship, GORUCK Ruck Plates® represent the very best of American manufacturing.

NOTE: These 20LB and 30LB Ruck Plates were previously referred to as Expert Ruck Plates. They are sized to fit perfectly in the Ruck Plate Carrier and Rucker
