The GORUCK GR1 is the flagship model of the extremely durable, popular (and expensive!) backpack brand. Their backpacks are inspired by the those used in the special forces and not only use the same materials, but also have similar features like: bombproof laptop compartments, waterproofing, false bottom, frame sheets, and silent zipper pulls. I’m fascinated by this no compromise brand with a massive following that continues to vouch for $300 commuter bags that can also lug bricks for workouts.
