EDIT: It looks like GORUCK SCARS will be adding the ability to have both grommet holes and bottom handles sewn into your rucks. Not sure on price for either option but it looks like those of us who own the Rucker 2.0 pre-bottom handle won’t be out of luck! See the screenshot below:
Updates to the GORUCK Rucker 2.0 already? That’s what I said at least having bought my Rucker 2.0 the day it was released and owning it for roughly eight months.
It looks like GORUCK has indeed gone ahead and added a bottom handle to their Rucker 2.0. Looking at the site you can see (as of when this was posted) that the Coyote is selling at $215 without a bottom handle and the rest of the colors are at $225 with a bottom handle.
Personally I feel like they should just sew some side handles into this thing (in addition to the bottom handle) and turn it into the ultimate event/workout ruck. The GR1 is an incredible everyday carry pack so they could further differentiate the Rucker 2.0 from it by essentially turning it into a hybrid ruck/sandbag masterpiece.
Have any thoughts on the addition of the bottom handle to the Rucker 2.0? We’d love to hear them in the comments!

Yeah – I was also surprised to see an update to Rucker 2.0 so soon after releasing it in different colorways! I just bought the Coyote Brown a few months ago and love it but any word on if the grommet holes come standard on the new ruck with bottom handles?

It looks like the only addition was the bottom handle at this point. Sounds like SCARS will be able to put some in the bottom but that’s after the fact…
Let’s make “Rucker 2.1” the official nomenclature.

I’m all for it!
