GP regulars are likely familiar with our love for GORUCK products. Thanks to a US Special Forces vet founder and a mission to create gear tough enough for city streets and war zones, the brand’s packs, boots, apparel and training items are equal parts stylish and reliable. Now comes a team-up with one of our favorite retailers, Huckberry, to roll out a limited-edition version of its classic GR1 pack.

Dubbed “Slick,” this version boasts many of the same features that make its older brother such a hit. We’re talking military-grade YKK zippers and 1000-denier Cordura fabric, a bombproof 17-inch laptop compartment and an open-flat design with internal mesh pockets for easy stashing of all your go-to gear. The pack also boasts room for a hydration reservoir and extra padding in the shoulder straps to ease heavier loads.

One notable difference? This version eschews the original GR1’s MOLLE webbing, which is handy for daisy-chaining a bunch of extra gear to the outside of the pack but not quite as, well, Slick.
