GORUCK + Ingress = Operation Clear Field

GORUCK has partnered with the company that makes Pokemon GO and Ingress to launch a new Ingress series called “Operation Clear Field.” Billed as a “Service-themed scavenger hunt with competitive Ingress gameplay,” the new offering from GORUCK continues their commitment to community service. Each team is given a list of objectives, which can include Ingress portals, and “your team then strategically plans to earn the most points and explore the best spots around – Ingressing and Instagramming and earning “Cool Points” as you go.” Of course, this is a competition, so the winning team gets a gold patch, the second place...

GORUCK Rucking Shirt Review (Short Sleeve)

My kids are awesome. They got me a short sleeve GORUCK Rucking Shirt for Christmas. Below is my ongoing review. Initial Impression When I pulled it out of the box I was immediately impressed with the look and feel. The shirt looks good and feels good. It is soft and smooth and has a nice stretch to it.
