Backpacks are arguably at the pinnacle of human-based cargo-carrying methods: they keep the hands and head free, they keep weight distributed symmetrically, and they stay out of the way. Green Guru takes the common backpack and adds to it not just great functionality, but environmental friendliness. Made of almost entirely recycled materials and produced in über-green facilities, the Ruckus Backpack is 1890 cubic inches of practicality for both you and the planet.

The Ruckus Backpack’s flip-top messenger-style opening makes for easy access to cargo, but to ensure that Mother Nature can’t access it, too, the pack is also entirely waterproof, and the main opening has a drawstring collar for an extra degree of protection. There’s an integrated laptop divider, a space for a hydration pack, and a sternum strap and removable waste strap to keep the load from shifting around. Throw in sleek style and some external reflective materials for visibility, and the Ruckus Backpack does the backpack concept proud.

Ruckus takes rugged to a different level

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I snagged this about a month ago and since then I have probably put in around 200 miles on my bike while wearing it (including a 75 mile trek through the desert of Southern California near the Salton Sea.)


-The rugged durability of this bag is incomparable. I have floated through "Timbuktu's Classic Bag" and Mountain Hardware bags, trying to find durability, simplicity and comfortability and this was the answer to all of those. I have dropped it (had it strapped to my rack on the back) at around 15km per hour and had a few scraps, nothing penetrating.

-Weather-ability of this bag is nuts. I live in Southern Arizona so the run doesn't come often, but when it does, it gives us a nice dunking and our runoff is atrocious, the city is not designed for it so everything is flooded. The third day I had this a storm swept through after I was already 4 miles away from home. I had my Macbook Air in the bag and got nervous as hell. Got home, it was completely dry.

-Comfortability. I carried probably about 18lbs through the 75 mile trek through the desert and it was on my back for about half of that. I did not have any difficulties or soreness the next few days!

-Easy access and simplicity. You just flap it up and you have access to every pocket, no million and a half zippers that can get caught on random crap. It is now my main commuter bag.


-Best bag I ever had, so technically this is just ways to make it even better.

-Have the tube continue under the bag to avoid the tire splash back underneath the bag where it is cloth.

It is black, and I get that people want more colors or something more durable, but you bough it asked for it....literally. The color, design and material is more then a design choice but a mentality of simplicity and sustainability.

You got a life long customer in me!
