Last time I checked the calendar it was weeks until Thanksgiving but don’t tell that to GORUCK because they just started their 2020 Black Friday sale!
Looking over the GORUCK sale page is very reminiscent of their previous Closeouts page. In terms of gear there’s a handful of GR1s on sale, the GR2 is on sale, and a few sandbags. Worth noting the pricing difference on the GR1s is based on sewing location. The Vietnam made GR1 is down to $169 while the USA made GR1 is at $199.
On the footwear side there’s the I/O Cross Trainers and MACV-1 boots on sale.
In addition there’s a “new” Desert Tan Suede MACV-1 boot on sale in very limited quantities. Apparently it’s a lighter shade of the Coyote and my guess is wasn’t made intentionally.
Finally on the apparel side there’s, as you’d expect if you’ve been around for previous years, a slew of random pieces on sale.
Overall the sale seems decent if you don’t own any of the gear or want to pick up something you’re missing. In addition with GORUCK announcing they’re bringing manufacturing of the GR1/GR2/GR3 back to the USA this might be the last time we see some of these colors for a while.

The Full Sale
As with every year here’s a full screenshot of the sale page as it existed at the very beginning. If you any thoughts on this sale I’d love to hear them in the comments!
& any BF sales from you?? ;)
so far for the first day of the sale, it was disappointing. The prices are not even low and the available items were very random like you said. Lets hope the upcoming ones will be better!

Hopefully some of additional Black Friday items GORUCK references in that image will be better. In addition the new items and colors will be something to at least look forward to seeing. Looking back at previous Black Friday sales the prices don’t feel “stellar” especially since almost everything has been at a similar price during the recent closeouts.
