The Reflective Padded Carry Handle is an awesome multi-purpose piece of gear. It can easily be attached to a ruck using one or two carabiners and the ruck’s webbing. For more details on how the attachment is made please check out the pictures of the item above. In addition to being a new handle/grab point for the ruck the handle can be used as an attachment point for other pieces of gear. There’s no reason you can’t use it to keep other gear on the back or sides of your ruck.
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 other drivers/bikers/pedestrians see us when we’re out training. If I could have a training ruck made of reflective tape I’d be happy but this is a great alternative since that won’t be happening anytime soon.
The addition of the padding makes the handle easier to carry when using for sustained amount of time. It also gives a firmer area to grasp when reaching for your ruck as there’s more “handle” there.
The Reflective Padded Carry Handle is made of 2 layers of .066″ heavy-weight polyester webbing. It includes 1/4″ closed-cell neoprene padding enclosed in a 1000D Cordura padding shell. The sewing is done in the USA using Dabond industrial polyester anti-wick thread.
