Todd Forkner, owner of Gear Nation and creator of the Ruck Carry Handles, contacted me recently about a new product he was launching called the HVS-V. The HVS-V is designed to do everything in its power to make you, the wearer, more visible. It attaches to the 3″x2″ patch area (on GORUCK packs) and to the webbing on the bottom of your pack. Once attached it stays firm and does its best to show your teammates where you are and prevent you from getting hit by cars.
There are currently two colors of the HVS-V available: Orange and Green. As of writing this there are only 3 of each color remaining so if this is something you’re interested in I’d order quick!
Reviews of these have been very positive overall. The only negative I’ve heard is that if you need to get large items in and out of the back pouch often it can become a pain. There’s enough room between the HVS-V and the pouch to slip your hands in and grab small items (food) but for larger items (like maps) you may need to disconnect the patch area to get to it.
Sales of these support both All Day Ruckoff and Gear N8tion. As some of you know Todd Forkner (owner of Gear N8tion) recently purchased an incredible sewing machine so that he can continue to make more products for the community. Buying one of these helps support that goal and I (for one) am very excited about what he has planned for the future.
