The Holy Grail for EDCers everywhere is the fabled “One-Bag Solution”. I think I’ve found it with the GORUCK GR2. I’ve had this bag for about a year now, and it’s served me well during hiking trips, ruck marches, yard work, weight training and calisthenics, vacations and travel, and, of course, every day carry. Check out these pics and videos to see what I mean!
Here are some shots of the GR2 in action. Videos explain the methods to my madness are after the jump.

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received.

Is this the 34l or 40l GR2?
It’s the 40L. I purchased it right before the smaller bag was released, but I would have chosen the 40L anyway given my stature and the amount of stuff I carry.
