We’ve taken a GORUCK GR1 through a a year-long gauntlet and considering its shining results, we’ve had not choice but to assume their newest product, the GORUCK Kit Bag, will be similarly excellent. Inspired by the military-issued bags that accompany all paratroopers on airborne operations, the Kit Bag comes in two sizes, both of which are built tough and field flexible.
The CIVVY ($195), shown, with just over two cubic feet of space, is perfect for daily use or weekend trips; the bulkier MIL ($245) hides nearly three cubic feet and is ideal for lengthier stays, wherever they may be. Both bags are made of water-resistant material to protect your gear, while a small, open inner pocket keeps your vital EDC items close at hand and out of harm’s way. On the exterior, the Kit bags feature a large open pocket for newspapers, flip-flops and books. But the biggest exterior boon? A MOLLE webbing system — again, borrowed from the military — which can be tailored to your exact needs. As if you needed more convincing, the Kit bag continues to wield GORUCK’s lifetime guarantee.
