Jason McCarthy from GORUCK on Assault Packs – Gear Tasting 81

What is an Assault Pack? On this episode of Gear Tasting, Jason McCarthy from GORUCK stopped by to help answer that question on our Questions Over Coffee segment. In addition to some great insight on what gear assaulters use, he offers his thoughts on why it’s hard to pin down a definition for assault packs.

Also in this episode, Bryan walks through all the trekking poles he uses out on the trail, including some new ones we recently received to evaluate.

In each episode of Gear Tasting, Imminent Threat Solutions Editor-in-Chief Bryan Black answers your gear-related questions and shares his insight into what we’re currently evaluating at ITS HQ.

For more on the gear we review, check out our GEARCOM category here on ITS.

    In the Baghdad to NYC story of the Goruck bag, or ruck, design, “assault pack” is used a couple of times if I remember correctly in uses to describe characteristics of typical assault packs.

    An odd phrase, yes. I was picking up some new night sights three days ago when hanging from a peg behind the counter I saw a “tactical key ring holder.” Yes, it was black. Why not “key ring holder” or “22.7 liter backpack?”

    Squirrelly adjective. It is what it is.
