What makes this different than the standard GR1 is the lack of molle, which makes this a slick ruck. The top handle and bottom portion of the ruck are made with leather and the material is of waxed canvas. I used this for about a couple of weeks before deciding its just not for me (I also own too many 21L GR1s, so this is the odd one out). Super comfortable to wear and well built.
Some units of the Heritage edition are known to have handles that are off-center, this handle is centered (I tried to take a photo as proof). This ruck does have a slight modification in that Ive removed the outer branding patch. This has left stitching holes where the patch used to be (as shown in the photos).
I think this will go away with use and some otter wax ever-so-often (I also cant guarantee the holes will go away so use your own judgement). It doesnt bother me, but it might for you. Please do look at the photos. Let me know if you have any questions.The item "GORUCK GR1 21L Heritage Edition (Excellent Condition)" is in sale since Monday, May 4, 2020.
