GR Bags are bombproof. SImple as that. There are a few other USA made brands that rival their build quality however. Mystery Ranch and Tactical Tailor to name a few. I personally own a Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault and have nothing by glowing things to say about it.

I have a GR1 and love it. I have it in Java brown and the thing is almost indestructible. I dropped it from a fifth story on accident and its fine. Its water resistant, not water proof. GoRucks opinion of waterproof is you can put it in the bottom of the ocean and it can't get wet inside. Its not that water proof, but I've had it in the rain and nothing got wet inside at all.

Swatdwag335, I know that Mystery Ranch makes the adjustable strap system on my Camelbak Lynchpin which is my favorite Camelbak bag. I will have to give them a look as well. Just looking at the website for GoRuck, I was looking at the GR0 and GR1 models in black. The inside looked pretty configurable with the outside being pretty non-descript. The few rows of molle at the bottom is just enough to hang something if I need to but doesn't stand out much.

Yea, they are super solid packs. The GR1 is a bit smaller than most other 24hr packs. Their GR2 is more like a 48hr pack, not a traditional 72hr. They have PALS on the inside with is nice for non-tactical looking organization. Plus the minimal PALS on the exterior is really discreet while still allowing for some customization. For discreet purposes, go with black.
They are really spendy though. Sure it'll last your lifetime, but how many of us want to run the same bag for that long? I wish they (and other manufacturers) would offer less beefy, 500D models at a better price point. I've personally seen Walmart rucks withstand multiple Goruck challenges (without a scratch!), so do we really need bags as tough as Goruck? No. But they are a great company doing great things so it's good to support them.
