GORUCK is having a huge sale as they transfer inventory back to their home office in Florida. In my opinion this is an amazing update for a number of reasons:
- There’s a huge sale on rucks, apparel, and other gear.
- GORUCK will finally have control over their inventory again.
GORUCK offloaded their inventory management and distribution back in 2016. This brought better shipping speeds (once packages had shipped) to the majority of the country however it also brought logistical issues that a lot of customers felt on the receiving end. Orders placed and not shipping for weeks, orders being held up because an item was out of stock, incorrect items being shipped… the list goes on.
With GORUCK taking back control of their inventory system it should be exciting to see these issues resolve. Inventory management can be a huge pain but, I’d argue, it can be an even bigger pain to have issues that you can’t directly fix. At least when an issue arises, and GORUCK has all of their inventory back, they’ll be able to directly fix it.
The Entire Moving Sale
On to the moving sale! Here’s a screen shot showing everything on sale and the respective prices. As items sell out I imagine they’ll drop off (which is what traditionally happens) so this should be good for historical purposes.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on GORUCK’s decision to bring inventory back. Personally I’m excited because I liked how quick things moved when GORUCK originally managed their own inventory. Everything seemed to ship quick and returns, and order changes, felt easier. Either way there’s a ton of stuff on sale right now so if you’re in the market for a piece of gear now is a good time to grab it!

Love these sales. I picked something that I’d been wanting for quite a while, a pair of the Performance Sweatpants in size Medium. There were only 2 left on the site when I tried to buy them, but their site was all jacked up and I couldn’t place my order! I finally did and got them for $69, which I thought was a pretty good deal. I also picked up one of their new GR Tac hats. Since it was all being shipped from Indianapolis (only 2 hours from me), the order only took 1 day to arrive. Loving the Performance Sweatpants in that Polartec material.
Couple things I noticed during this sale:
1) Wow, GORUCK sure did make a bunch of rucks in fugly colorways. I’m not surprised they couldn’t sell them. However, those Urban Gray look really sharp. I’d have picked up a couple at those prices if I didn’t already have a Wolf Gray GR1 21L and 26L.
2) Wow, GORUCK changes their apparel product names often. Challenge? Performance? Travel? Rucking? What the heck? I’ve been a buyer of GORUCK goods for some time now, and I pay attention to all this stuff, but at this point I’m pretty confused about their apparel naming conventions.

It is sooo difficult to keep track of what their current line of apparel is. Is it a Rucking Tee? Rucking Shirt? Performance Shirt? Training Shirt? Tough Tee? The list goes on and on and on… I feel like they need to sit down and create a giant post going over all of the different materials used on the products and what the names actually mean. I’m sure there’s some logic to it but I just haven’t found it yet 😬
If it means more control and better overall management of orders, then yeah, thats great! I would also like to add that I picked up a gem of the GR1 Java 21L along with the Java field pocket! Did you get anything from the sale??
Brian ADR says
Nothing yet but they’ve just added the Rucker 15L to the sale which I’ve had my eye on… great rucking pack for the smaller people!
As if I haven’t spent enough stocking up for self-quarantine!

School is cancelled for 6 weeks here and it’s looking like longer. I underestimated how much my kids eat since they usually eat two meals at school and daycare 😅
