Jason has said that they are working to refine the process to make it all more simple and scalable. No ETA on when we’ll see either pop back up, but we may get some info in the near future.
- Jason posted in a comment thread that a new “Events Website” may be launching as soon as March.
- In the same comment thread as mentioned above the GORUCK app (mentioend in State of GORUCK) is “on hold.”
- GORUCK quietly dropped the price of the Heritage GR1 by $100. Only 16 left at time of this post.
- The KR1 is back in stock. Available in Black and Coyote. This is a great pack for kids. My littlest loves his.

- 20L Rucker is also on Closeout.
- GR1 Urban Grey on sale for $195 21L and 26L
- GORUCK released the Performance TAC Hat. I bought one. It is pretty nice.
- Finally, we spotted a pair of the Women’s Leggings on the GORUCK Home Page. Emily would neither “confirm or deny” that those were, in fact, the leggings we talked about here.
