GORUCK Shadow Rucks and Shadow Pockets

GORUCK makes well-designed and nearly bomb-proof backpacks and other accessories. However, one of the loudest complaints about the products is the price. Fair enough. But I am a big proponent of “you get what you pay for” and GORUCK is a prime example of that. My GORUCK GR1 backpack has been hands-down the most high-quality, durable backpack I have ever purchased and used. Not long ago, GORUCK introduced their “Shadow” line of Rucks and Pockets. These are backpacks and accessory pouches that have been removed of MOLLE webbing, laptop compartments and other features to simplify them down to the essentials, as well as reducing the price. Shadow Ruck pricing: SD15 $60, SD20 $65 and SD25 $70. Shadow Pockets pricing: S $24, M $28, L $32 and XL $36. More affordable but with standard GORUCK quality.  Ruck on over to GORUCK for more info.

    I so wanted the SD20 at the $65 price which was perfect and now it is $95 . Way too expensive now.

    @jar – I completely agree. I wish I’d picked one or two up at the reduced price before they jumped back up. I guess GORUCK figured they couldn’t keep the prices on the Shadow Rucks that low.
