Built for Speed

Built for Speed. The Speed Rucker is a lightweight, streamlined rucksack purpose built for competitive rucking and for shaving minutes and seconds off so you meet the time standard. The integrated Padded Hip Belt gives you an option to hip carry over long distances and the minimal construction is meant to carry weight, water and your Star Course essentials without excess. Less space for only the essentials = more speed.


Hi-Vis Reflective Stripe

Reflective stripe across the front of the ruck allows for visibility even when on the move at night.

500D Cordura Fabric

Feels like broken in 1000D Cordura and is lighter weight.

Simple & Streamlined

15L volume designed at the same height as the 20L Rucker, but less bulk so you can move faster with just the essentials.

Optimized for Hydration

Clip your hydration bladder into the interior d-ring with a carabiner and feed the hose through the exit port under the top handle of the ruck.

Ruck Plate Compatible

Elevated Ruck Plate Pocket is deisgned to securely hold 20 or 30 lb Ruck Plates high on your back with a velcro closure.

Extra Padded Straps

Shoulder straps and top handle are extra padded to carry heavier loads more comfortably.

Zippered Pocket

One internal zippered pocket to secure keys, wallet, phone

Built-in Hip Belt

The non-removable, built-in padded hip belt allows you to distribute heavy loads to your hips over long periods of time.


Our rucks are highly water resistant aka rainproof.

Frame Sheet

Supports the integrity of the pack as you weigh it down and allows you to carry a heavier load more comfortably.

Opens Flat

Easy to pack and organize. Special Forces medical rucks share a similar design.

Silent Zipper Pulls

YKK zippers with silent, glove friendly zipper pulls constructed from parachute 550 cord.


“I dig the Speed Rucker, it’s my new go-to ruck for strictly weighted distance and timed rucks. It’s the most comfortable and lightest ruck I’ve used. For that reason I’ve made it my primary #MarchingForVeterans 100 mile October Rucking Challenge ruck. The rainproof 500D Cordura held up while I rucked during one of our many Tropical storms, not one drop made it in. Plus the padded shoulder straps and hip belt allowed me to go faster and farther before my traps and back fatigue and pain set in.”

"I used the Speed Rucker to ruck ALL the hills during the San Francisco Star Course. The built-in hip belt supported my ruck weight when my shoulders needed a break, allowing me to keep moving and make our time hack. This ruck is lightweight and built for moving fast while rucking and carries everything you need - Ruck Plate, water, half-zip or rain jacket, and snacks - and nothing more. My favorite feature is the reflective strip because now that’s one less thing I have to remember to pack."
