Recommended Ruck 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 the Bullet 10L and Bullet 15L dayrucks 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.
