Get it now – only from GORUCK: Let’s take a closer look. GORUCK Rucker 4 – REVIEW I took this bag out to stomp around in the woods.

So – you use Velcro (aka hook and loop) instead. It works just fine. But, it’s NOISIER and it takes longer to open and close. I think that’s OK – this is a tool for fitness – not stealth. They’ve also added more foam padding in the interior to better protect your head from sliding [Read more …]
