If, like us, you want the bag you carry every day to be tough-as-hell but also look be pretty, and you want it to be packed with pockets and features but also be sleek, then the chances are that, like us, you’ll dig nearly everything GORUCK produces.

Ex-special-forces soldier Jason McCarthy founded GORUCK in 2008 because he wanted to create a backpack that would function for both servicemen fighting overseas and commuters heading in for a day at the office. Using those design parameters, McCarthy came up with the GR1, an everyday backpack made of special-forces-grade materials including YKK zippers and 1000-denier Cordura fabric.

The GR1 was well received and quickly saw success, so McCarthy expanded his collection and continues to do so today. Right now, a handful of GORUCK’s special-forces-grade bags are on sale from 15 to 29 percent off at Huckberry. There are aviator-style kit bags, a burly gym duffel, a small field pouch for organizing small items, and of course, the GR1.
