Rucking Boots from GORUCK

Let’s review Ruck boots from GORUCK. The MACV-1 is one of the nicest shoes (boot or otherwise) I’ve had the pleasure to test. And the good news is that GORUCK has lots of variations on the MACV-1 – and even a close-cousin – the new Jedburgh ruck boot. Rucking is a form of cardio exercise, and its most significant advantage is it makes fitness as simple as walking. It is also a low-intensity interval training workout where you walk with a weighted rucksack for a set distance and gets you in shape, helps you gain strength, and develops your cardio. So if you want a new kind of adventure, rucking is something you want to try. All you need is a rucksack with added weight and good rucking boots.

Here’s our review of the GORUCK TAC Hat. Yep, it’s a hat. But seriously – this is a good hat you may want to pick up. We’ll explain further here.
