GORUCK Bullet 10L Explained by Jason.

This is one of the best daypacks I’ve tried if you don’t need to carry a laptop. It’s small but big enough for the essentials. It makes you nimble and allows you to pack light and go fast.

It also fits inside a GR2. Highly recommended!

I can’t help but think of “a simple black bag, comfortable in any and every environment imaginable,” which was the first line the GR1 Explained post from several years ago and sorry to quote, ummmm, myself who does that? it’s just that the comparison is the elephant in the room or at least in my head. Especially since the 10L Bullet Ruck has come to replace the 26L GR1 for me, in some instances. I travel with a 40L GR2 everywhere I go (more on that later). GR1 is great when I have my laptop and for rucking/training with more weight. GR1 is wider though still low profile and has a back panel that offers additional stability. The Bullet is pretty much my stuff-it-in-and-go ruck. It offers the the option for much less commitment because you can’t carry as much baggage with you hah! speaking literally not metaphorically at all.

“Anywhere I can make a buying choice that I, with proper care and maintenance, will never have to make again for the rest of my life, I do. In those cases, I’m willing to pay far more for an item if I know it will last a lifetime and, even more importantly to me, I will never have to spend the mental energy making a choice again.”
