GORUCK M23 - Ripstop ROBIC


Soldiers in the US military have been issued bags since before the civil war. Early on, there were Knapsacks. Rugged, single cavity bags made for long movements. The need for more pockets and organization for quick access to smaller essentials like food, water, and weaponry brought us the M1945 during WWII. It was named after the year it was manufactured and issued. These are the bags that inspired us to develop the M23 rucksack, also named after the year it is manufactured and “issued”.

We took what we loved about this pack: the top load, exterior pockets, and front buckles and carried it over to a modern rucksack. We’ve upgraded the M1945, to the GORUCK standard of extra padded shoulder straps and top handle, the highest quality YKK zippers, streamlined closure system, a bombproof laptop compartment, and now more pockets for even more organization. It’s lightweight, low profile for everyday carry, and made from durable materials that you can trust.
