The Challenge of GORUCK. Action, Energy, and Purpose. Some of us spent a lot of time playing Zelda and some of us didn’t but either way this patch looks beautiful. For those of you curious here is the Zelda logo that the text in the patch is based off of. There’s just something about the gold that really pops in this patch. I was worried that when I received it the color would actually be more of a yellow but from the picture one can see that it’s definitely a gold. It especially looks great (and really stands out) on a black ruck. That being said if you’re not trying to draw any attention to yourself then this is probably not the patch to wear because the gold does stand out.
There’s something about these video game patches that take me back and I really like that. Someday I’m sure I’ll have a child and if they’re wearing a SD20 or something for school I’ll make sure to put one of these patches on it. There are a couple of other video game inspired GORUCK patches out there and thankfully each one I’ve seen has been done very well. The Smashing Limits patch was done in the same style and I know there is a Contra one out there as well. Expect the Contra patch to make a debut on the site in the next few weeks (hopefully).
