The shoulder straps are designed to allow the wearer to carry a heavy load comfortably. GR2’s are wider and thicker than GR1’s because it will often carry more weight. The way we integrate them into the ruck itself causes the user to wear the ruck high on their back, which is more comfortable. Rucks that sit lower take their toll on the wearer’s lower back. The idea is to get as much weight next to the wearer’s spine as possible for load distribution. This is also why we build pockets into the top of the ruck that carry weight. An evenly distributed pack that rests on the top of the spine is always the preferred technique, and allows for much additional comfort, especially over time and usage. People often wonder why our rucks are so comfortable after extreme use, and this is one of the reasons why.
