Titling this post was a nightmare. GORUCK came out with an epic amount of gear today and keeping up with it was insane. This post will include all of the accessories and fun stuff that they came out with on October 8th, 2013. In addition to this list they also came out with the GR0 and a lot of Klean Kanteen gear as well.
Now just where the hell to start with all of these new products…
US Flag Shorts
If there’s something that says patriotism better than American Flag 1″ (yes 1 inch) split leg v-notch running shorts please send it my way because I don’t believe you. These shorts are manufactured by BOA and are made in the good ol’ USA. Honestly though… they’re US Flag Shorts and they should be made here. My favorite “Feature” of the shorts is that they “(c)an be worn standalone or as underwear, depending on weather and personal style” which means they’re badass. If someone can be worn as both underwear and shorts you know it’s special.
Texas Flag Shorts
Now I’m not from Texas but I’ve met a lot of people from that fine state. Everyone from Texas loves Texas and what better way to show your love than these awesome Texas Flag Shorts?
GORUCK Cornhole Set
Cornhole is one of my favorite games to play and consume beers with. Being outside, beer in hand, and playing a game of semi-skill is great… we just need a little more sun up here in the Pacific NorthWest. Either way GORUCK just put out this GORUCK Cornhole Set which will probably last you until you die… at least it hopefully will because it’s $175.
GORUCK Shower Shoes
I don’t know the difference between these and normal flip-flops. Is there something special about them that makes them shower only? I think you can wear these to the beach as well as the shower… but don’t quote me on that because they’re called GORUCK Shower Shoes.
Nite Ize S-Biner
Nite Ize S-Biners open on both sides… why not make life a little easier on yourself. Three different sizes and prices that range from $2.50 to $3.50 so you can safely assume these are not made in the USA. If I’m incorrect in this assumption (did a little research) please correct me.
Nite Ize S-Biner Ahhh
Sometimes you need an carabiner and sometimes you need to open a beer. Then there are those special times when you need both. That’s where the Nite Ize S-Biner Ahhh come sinto play. At $5 it could quickly become your best friend as it will hold your shit during a GORUCK Challenge and ALSO open beers for you.
GORUCK Branded Non-Locking Carabiner
What’s better than a carabiner? A carabiner that says GORUCK on it? Maybe… I think so but others may not. For those of us who do think so GORUCK has released this GORUCK Branded Non-Locking Carabiner. Clip all your shit to your ruck and run around like a damn Gypsy camp. That’s a joke… there are many good uses for carabiners but making your own Gypsy camp is not one of them.
Ontario Geardo says
Yep, I’ve got one of those bottle opener crabs. It’s a good one to have for keys and what not. Even though it’s pretty rad to always have a bottle opener, you will always get more man points for hammering a bottle open on a ledge :)
Agreed! Man points from a ledge or if you can use one of those plastic lighters to pop the cap off… that one was always harder for me than I thought it should have been.
