Last year we lost two of the Red Team members in two separate incidents in Afghanistan. They were there performing an assessment while attached to a military unit.
In one incident they took fire and one of the Team members, jumped out of his cover to assist a wounded soldier. He dragged the soldier to safety but he was shot while doing this. He died on the way to the field hospital.
The other incident was pure bad luck. A mortar round found its way to the position where the unit and the Team member were taking cover when the attack began. They had no chance.

Last year I put some of my watches and other gear for a raffle to help raise money for their families. This is year I would like to raise money in a way that everyone that donates gets something and after asking the guys in the Team, they all agree that tshirts are the best way. We all love them and we all need a cool, new tshirt.

So, we have created a new campaign with this tshirt. The design was made for the Team that went to Afghanistan. We figured it would be a good tshirt. I hope you guys like it.

Available in 4 different colors, the target is 100 tshirts. Make it count. Spread the word please!


7 days to go and a few more shirts needed. Would you help me spread the word? redteamsblog:

10L Bullet ruck  was exactly what I needed for yesterday’s hiking in the Brecon Beacons

Q

willspictures asked:

What makes the 40 liter GR2 worth $400? This is a serious question.

A

The fact that 1) it’s made in the USA, with US made materials and American hands, 2) Quality control and test and attention to details 3) the fact that GORUCK stands behind its products.

7 Day Trip to London, everything fitted in my GR2.

GORUCK Shadow Pockets are now being constructed from 500d Cordura.  That means nearly the same level of durability but in a lighter, more compact, and therefore faster package.  Still want the former 1000d version?  Get ‘em before they’re gone.   

Lowe Alpine Expedition backpacks 1983 and ca. 1973.

I’m going to jump right in and put this bluntly. I hate carrying a ton of stuff on me. Be it in my pockets when I’m out and about, or heading to work. I don’t travel too much, but when I have in the past, I’ve always managed to have at least 2 bags with me. This past weekend, I went to a friend’s bachelor party, consisting of an over night stay at a lake in Minnesota. I figured it was the perfect time to practice traveling with one bag, and my Goruck GR1 stepped up to the plate like a champ!
