Tested and Proven: NEW Rucker Long Range 39L
All of our Rucksacks have been tested and proven at thousands of GORUCK events across the world. When you see product photos on our website, they aren’t air brushed models, these are our friends whooping it on right out back behind HQ or at GORUCK Events. So, when we came out with our new Rucker Long Range, we gave it to some of our friends to put it to the test.
It is a purpose built rucksack for long range Rucking & Rucking Events like GORUCK Selection. You have a heavy pack out and you move out for miles and miles on end and you want the most comfortable rucksack ever built on your back.
Bragg Tough & Bragg Basic aka bear crawls, Ruck PT, & all the miles
Meet Patrick Mies.
He describes himself as never really an athlete school or in his youth. He came into fitness while working construction in his 20’s. Sun up to sun down, no real breaks, and working with hard men forced him to carry the load and get stronger. Patrick did go to the gym to do the typical bodybuilder-type workouts, but his real strength came from just hard work daily. Carrying and installing heavy glass and steel were his real secret weapons for building endurance and power. Years later it came full circle when Patrick found GORUCK. Whether it’s a Basic, Tough or Heavy it’s just like a long day at work. Carrying heavy stuff and getting the job done with a team. Over the years while doing GORUCK events, Patrick has taken part in all levels of our events and has even completed our top tier event GORUCK Selection, class 021. Hard work pays off.
Six rounds for time of: 24 Squats | 24 push-ups | 24 Walking Lunges | 400m Run / Ruck

How did it hold up?
“At first, I was concerned that this ruck was going to be too large for what I was about to put it through. But once it was on my back it found a way to blend in and felt much more agile and secure than I anticipated. The hip belt is key to making that happen. This ruck excels during times when the demands are at their highest, when extra supplies and weight are needed to get the job done!” – Eric Chilton
