3 Reasons to GORUCK Yourself! | Product Review

Ever taken a trip and just couldn't seem to find the right bag. Your stuff didn't fit, or it just wasn't functional for the type of transportation you were taking? I deal with this every time I travel. I have hated most of my travel bags for years. So I finally got in touch with a locally owned and operated company in Jacksonville Beach that specializes in building exactly what I needed.

"GORUCK Yourself!"

Note: This post is from 2015 but was lost in a blogger black hole for months but has finally been recovered. I hope you enjoy!

Here are 3 great ways to GORUCK Yourself.

1. GORUCK Your Business Trip

If you're business trips are on the shorter side (2-3 nights) you're probably used to traveling with a single carry-on bag to avoid fees. And if you're not a First or Priority Class, or Infant-In-Arms traveler, you're probably tired of the mandatory (and UNAMERICAN! I might add) bag check at the gate.

For most of my trips within the past year have I have taken GORUCK as my one and only bag. That means I don't have to check my bag, and I don't have to fight for an overhead compartment because it fits below the seat in front of me. And that's a good thing because I hate boarding lines and prefer to board as late as possible.

2. GORUCK Your Vacation

Duration: 3 nights
Destination: Paradise (aka Scrub Island, BVI)
Packing list:

- Board Shorts
- T-Shirts
- Shades
- Sun Tan Lotion
- Fedora
- Cameras & Equipment
- Laptop (for storing pic/vids, no working allowed)
- Passport

Baggage: 1 GORUCK

Seriously, I recently took a much needed vacation to Scrub Island, BVI and took only my GORUCK. I knew I didn't want to drag multiple bags through 4 flights and a boat ride (1 way). Also, it mean the bag never left my possession and I wouldn't have to worry about it getting lost. (Although my laptop was stolen by TSA agents in the San Juan, PR airport. Read about that experience here: 5 Air Travel Security Tips)

and last but not least...  

3. GORUCK Your Workout

Use your GORUCK as it was intended, for Rucking. According to GORUCK's website go·ruck [verb go + verb ruck] is a noun ruck, short for rucksack (aka backpack), and it’s also a verb: to ruck is to move with a rucksack, and implies action, energy, and purpose.

I have a variety of packs for different activities; however, the build quality of my GORUCK sets it apart from the others. it's equipped to handle the toughest conditions and keep you on the move.
