Goruck takes its name from the military term for backpacking. Founder Jason McCarthy did a lot of that during his stint in the Special Forces. It also taught him the value of quality in equipment. That's why he launched his company in 2008, to create the hard-wearing gear that could withstand the urban jungle, and beyond. The brand utilizes heavy-duty materials like double-layered Cordura, and they just released an appropriate multi-camo colorway of their water-resistant GR1 bag. While you probably won't be undergoing any stealth ops anytime soon, a tough-as-nails backpack is an ideal option for someone looking for a serious bag that can withstand the rigors of constant travel. With multiple customization options, kitting it out for the work week or the weekend isn't a problem at all.
