My new bestie


radio ruck, four bricks, 3 liters water, yoga block, and spare bricks

I have no idea how much this bag weighs. I’m afraid to find out.

Yes, I am well aware that the yoga block is peeeeeeenk. I just need it to hold the bricks in place. I should probably use velcro, too, but everything is jammed in there pretty tight.

I have both the GR1 and the Radio Ruck. I’m glad I “splurged” and got the RR. The GR1 is a little too long and hits my tailbone. This one is a much better fit, plus it’s smaller so it limits the amount of crap I can stick in it. I’ve read a lot about people over packing. The only other stuff I’m packing are some little tablets that turn the water into something gatorade-ish and some protein bars, and my $20 for an emergency cab.

I am still freaked out by the fact that I’m doing it.

I still can’t put into words why I want to do it.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - breaking in a bag with bricks does it quickly, but I still wouldn’t recommend it.

Know why?

Four bricks are fucking HEAVY.
