Generally speaking, GORUCK is going to have a bigger selection of colors and styles – BUT if Rogue has it in stock, and it’s the style you want – GET IT FROM ROGUE! Want it?

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. First, understand they’ve carried over all the cool new stuff from the Rucker 3. Like what? Tons of handles, drain grommets, low-abrasion shoulder straps, low-abrasion hip belt, and two interior pockets for plates. They’ve made it better – primarily by removing all the interior zippers. 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 …]

GORUCK 24.7 Merino Wool Tee

Here’s the new 24.7 Merino Wool Tee from GORUCK. Merino wool was compared to silk in ancient times. It is the most luxurious and has the highest quality when it comes to apparel created for the outdoors. Merino wool is very in demand, especially in the outdoor gear world, because of the amazing benefits of keeping you comfortable and dry during your outdoor activities.
