The Front Reflective Quick Carry Handle is an awesome multi-purpose piece of gear. It can easily be attached to a GORUCK pack by using the webbing on the ruck and the attachment points on the handle. In addition to being a new handle/grab point for the ruck it can be used as an attachment point for other pieces of gear.
The reflective strips are a great addition to the handle because they provide a safer experience when rucking at night. A lot of the gear we wear when training is dark in nature so any added reflective strips help drivers/bikers/pedestrians see us when we’re out training. Slap one of these on each shoulder strap and you’ll light up in the headlights of any oncoming traffic.
Please note that the Dot Black version is thicker than the Orange and Red variants. The Orange and Red measure at 3/16″ thick while the Dot Black measures at 5/16″ inch thick. The Orange and Red weigh in at 1.3 oz while the Dot Black weighs in at 1.7 oz.
If you plan on using this handle on the back of your ruck during an event it is advised that you put a line of duct tape on each clip. This will better secure it to the pack and prevent it from potentially popping off your ruck. Although we’ve never had one come off our ruck before it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
