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.

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!
