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. Learn more about Ruck Plate® compatibility in Bullet Rucks here.

You want the 20 LB if you are:

  • Over 150lbs. and signed up for a GORUCK Light
  • Under 150lbs. and signed up for a GORUCK Tough or Heavy
  • New to rucking

You want the 30 LB if you are:

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

Ruck Plates for the GR1. Some Ruck Plates may technically fit in other rucksacks, but that does not mean they will be secure to our standards. See our Recommended Ruck Compatibility Chart for more information.
