For those of you who have been following the threads surrounding the carry handles in the PMR Facebook Group I’m excited to announce that they are finally here. These carry handles were thought up and produced by Todd Forkner (creator of the brick panel). The handles are great quality and made in the USA from USA materials. One thing I’ve learned I can trust from Todd is that his quality and craftsmanship is always spot on.
There are four designs available with the reflective ones having two color choices. There is the standard carry handle which comes in black and is the most basic of the offerings. Then there’s the reflective handle which is similar to the standard except that it comes in black or red and features a reflective layer for safety when rucking at night. The standard padded handle is sightly more expensive and features a soft, padded grab area and is reminiscent of the carry handle on GORUCK packs. Finally, the reflective padded handle features the comfort of the padded handle and the safety reflective features of the reflective handle.
These handles can be attached to your ruck by using one or two carabiners. From what I hear they’re more comfortable if you use two but they still work well with one. Check out the picture below for an example on how to attach the handle to your ruck with two carabiners.
These handles are now available for sale now and range from $9.99 – $14.99 each. The majority of the proceeds are going back to Todd to pay off the giant sewing machine he bought to make these. The giant sewing machine will also ensure that he can continue to produce awesome stuff for the community.
