  1. I ordered a GR-3 with molle and the handles. They stated when I made the purchase that the order will be filled in November/December 2017. If production starts in two weeks then I might get it sooner.

    One of the complaints about the goruck bags are that the interior is dark and it would be better if the interior was in light colors. I agree. If the production starts in two weeks then the decision to keep the interior with dark colors has already been made.

  2. I got a follow up email yesterday. Production starts in a couple days and they expect to ship out the first run by the end of November.
