    Some really killer prices on Ruckers selling for $179. I am not a fan of the Jedburghs myself, but there are some MacV-1s on sale and those are excellent boots.

  • More Heritage GORUCK Gear

    GORUCK released the GR2 (26L and 34L) in Heritage materials, as well as the Bullet Ruck. They both look great, but be advised that the prices on these are a premium over the stock ones. (Oh, and a Field Pocket in Heritage.) I can’t speak to those items directly, but the GR1 Heritage I bought […]

  • Kuiu Founder’s Day Sale

    Some silly good deals on Kuiu gear at up to 40% off. I’ve tried quite a few things from them, and every single item I have gotten has been great. Their training shorts are my favorites right now for rucking. I snagged a couple more things during this sale.

  • Filson Sale (40-ish% off)

    Some good deals to be had, oddball sizes so don’t get too revved up. I grabbed a dry bag to try for a great price though. (Pro-tip: Filson tends to randomly add more stuff throughout sales.) Gear up.

  • GORUCK Kit Bag Back In Stock (Black)

    $125 with shoulder strap, for what is probably one of the better weekender/travel duffle bags out there. I currently use mine as my emergency bag for my house, and I think it fills that role supremely well (members can head here to see what I use in place of it). My thoughts on the bag […]

    Really good deals on headlamps here if you need to grab some. The Spot Lite 200 for a small compact light that has a red light is a favorite of mine. The Wiz is ideal for kids. The Storm models are great for those who need to make it through some rough weather conditions. And […]

  • GORUCK GR1 Field Pockets in Multicam Tropic

    GORUCK just dropped some GR1 Field Pocket in Multicam Tropic — a favorite of mine — and they are not USA made which means the price is nicely set at $50. (They also released Multicam Black and Black at the same price.) I think this is the best size of these GORUCK makes, and I have […]

  • Smart Alec Return

    The Smart Alec was the first bag I reviewed on this site, at least as far as I can remember. Way back in December of 2011, I wrote about it in what became a three part series for reasons lost to time. And I had a small update later about some design changes. Over time […]

  • New Rucker Day

    GORUCK released ‘reservations’ for the new Rucker 4.0, and Rucker Long Range. The Rucker 4.0 appears to have a few changes: extra padding on the top of the plate, velcro closures on the internal flap pockets, extra d-rings inside the bag, and no slant pocket on the front. This is all done to make for […]
