GORUCK has officially made the first change to the GR1 since its launch 14 years ago. The change?
The “NEW” GR1 – First Look Video
While it might not seem like such a big deal, since GORUCK has often created variations on the GR Series, like the Heritage, Slick, Shooter, Colorways, etc, but what GORUCK has done in this update is say that this is a permanent change to the base model of our flagship rucks. This means that all GR Series rucks pre-2023 are now “classic” and will be the only way to get a ruck with 500D or 1000D material for the backing.
Personally, there are aspects of this that I like. The 210D material is great. Super smooth, easy on your clothing, and feels good on your back.
But, I’m also resistant to change. It makes me a little sad that the uniformity of the material’s “look” won’t be consistent around the bag. And… it’ll just be different.
Thankfully, I own a number of the classic GR Series rucks and I’m sure the “new” series will grow on me over time.
