GORUCK GR2 Review (One Year Test) | Pack Hacker
If you’re looking for a (nearly) bomb proof bag and have no problem acquiring heavier weight for a nearly indestructible bag, the GORUCK GR2 is a good option for you. If you’re looking for an even larger one, check out our thoughts on the GR3.

OP—given what you’re carrying, I’d recommend the 34L GR-2 and add a sternum strap. I carry a similar(ish) set up daily, running to/from work with this and it’s held up admirably for 4 years now.
Traveled around Europe last summer with a GR2 34L, it was great. Easy to stow under plane/train seats but as other ppl have said the weight can add up for sure. Tempted to pick up a 40L during this sale...
I’m going with the GR2 34L, lifetime warranty is the big selling point for me I have gone through 6 backpacks in the last 7 years, it’s cost me more buying cheaper backpacks and having to replace them
I found it much too small for anymore than 48-72 hour travel MAX (especially if you need a change of footwear), but I tend to be a bit of an over packer. If I were to pick up a goruck bag again, the 34L GR2 is the smallest bag I’d consider.
Since you’re a big guy as well go with the Goruck GR2…34 or 40L. I love mine and it keeps getting better and better the more i break it in. It doubles as a day bag and built like a tank. It’s great for hiking as it’s water bladder compatible too. It’ll last you a lifetime. Can’t beat 1000D cordura N...
I would go with the GR2 34L (the GR2 26L is probably not coming back). This is a deeper version of the GR1 26L. You get a second compartment and more organization options.
Best Travel Packs: GORUCK GR2 (34L) Revisited
But it comes in at about 370 dollars, so very close to the price range that you'll see on these GORUCK bags, and so with all that being said after using the gr2 over many different trips, it continues to hold up really well, it's one of my go-to Bags, I absolutely love the style, I'll always be a big fan of the GORUCK look, and even though the price increase in the availability of other great bags at a much lower price point is gon na make this a rough sell for some people.
I still recommend the Goruck GR2 in 34L or 40L (depending on your size). If you are a real minimal packer ther GR1 26L also makes an awesome choice as you already have a killer daypack.
Had this pack for about 6 months and 8 total trips. It always felt small internally for how big the bag is externally. It also felt very crammed, from front to back. It left me with a sense of being very conscious of how I packed it and where things went because it would more oval shaped than square...
