Just checked google. According to the Goruck twitter account @GORUCK, they don't have any U.K stockists. They recommend emailing them:

info@goruck.com


And they'll "take care" of you.

Edit: although, that was in May last year. So they might, but that was practically the first hit.

Actually, great as they are, I don't want to spend almost $300 on something I'm not going to use that often.

Mega, just go with Herchel Supply or Topo Designs. Good enough quality to last a few years with light use. Cheap as hell.

$35(on sale)-$120.

You can pretty much find them on sale at anytime.

Karmaloop promo codes are always around, even on the site.

I got a good deal on the Gorucks, for some reason the small one was $70 reduced which paid for the postage. I use the GR1 weekly at the moment, so it seemed worth it.

Highly recommend the North Face Recon though. Presuming they still make it, it's an excellent bag for the money. I posted a 'what's in your bag' a while back here: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=284.msg42528#msg42528

Rubbish picture, but gives you an idea what was in the bag.

Oh, I got the Makr Farm Rucksack for my birthday as well, from this place. Great bag for day trips/ work.

Not a bad price for the UK as well.

I'm about to sell my old Saddleback briefcase as well, but it doesn't sound like that's what you're after.

I agree 100%. This just comes down to cost and hat you're willing to pay. Herschel's cheap, money and quality wise.

Topo is make in the USA. Nuff said.

I think it'd look better as all denim. Can't see a reason for that camouflage, doesn't blend in well. Which is more than a little ironic :).

since there is camo i actually like it... a lot!
only thing that i'm not quite a fan of are the denim shoulder straps...think they will bleed blue and be visible on a few top-items imo!...

So, I need a new bag, I'm looking at this: http://killspencer.com/device/macbook-pro-17/korean-war-era-business-messenger.html

Anyone got any suggestions for a similarly hardy messenger?

Different style, but definitely hardy are the bags by Mission Workshop.  I've got one of the backpacks and the thing is damn near indestructible.  I'd imagine the messenger bags are built to the same level...
