Quality rucking gear from the UK

It’s not walking, it’s rucking.

Rucking is the exercise that does it all. By walking with weight, you get fit without cardio and build muscle without the gym.

All you need is some weight on your back.

Get started with rucking by shopping our range of weighted ruckpacks (rucking backpacks) or weighted plate carriers.

Step 1: add weight to a pack
You can use any decent rucksack for rucking, but it makes sense to use a purpose-build ruckpack and weights that will be comfortable and durable.

Step 2: adjust for comfort
Make sure the weight is distributed evenly across your back, with shoulder and chest straps of your ruckpack or plate carrier tightened snugly.

Step 3: shoes, socks, essentials
You wouldn’t run in beaten up old trainers. Choose rucking footwear that’s supportive and comfortable. And carry your phone and water.

Step 4: start rucking
Rucking is the art of walking or hiking with weight on your back. You can choose any distance, any duration, and any incline. Start with shorter, flatter routes.

What Gear do you need?

Force Fitness Rucking Backpack

Our rucking backpack is designed to carry rucking weights and all your essentials with plenty of internal pockets. Fully-adjustable comfort so you can focus on the path ahead. Buy as backpack only, or add weight in 5kg increments. Ultra-durable, hard-wearing, and ready when you are.


Force Fitness Rucking Plate Carrier

Our rucking plate carrier is slimmer than a backpack, sitting close to the body with weight plates held snugly inside. It’s a streamlined ruckpack/weighted vest hybrid that’s perfect when you don’t want to carry a ton of extra rucking kit. Add 5kg and 10kg weight plates to design your own load.
