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

Weights are heavy and shipping heavy things isn't easy. Each Ruck Plate® purchased will ship in its own box and can only be shipped to the lower 48 states. Ruck Plates® ship FREE and orders containing Ruck Plates® cannot be expedited.



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.

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

You want the 20 LB if you are:

You want the 30 LB if you are:

  • Comfortable rucking 30 LB already
