I looked through their site. I didn't see anything I would use, and nothing I would pay that much for.


If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.

i don't see what this has to do with xc running. if you want a bag for running.. i don't think these are them.

bullet ruck might do the job. kinda looks more like a company geared towards people wanting to identify with some sort of political statement...

 

 

but I do understand their prices... made in 'merica. 

 

not my thing. probably fun though.

xs yeah the bags arent just for normal people day to day stuff, and honestly i dont see the point of a 1000d gym bag/sand bag but their main line is very durable. i dont own one yet but ive seen them after theyve been thru the ringer and its better than the blackhawk!, voodoo and even tactical tailor and arctryx.

ayo for that bit i mean not the gear so much as the events.

but the gear is next level. they really did the research and testing on the bags for points of failure.

This is the only "extreme run" I'd ever consider doing. You will learn more about yourself during that time then most of us have in an entire lifetime's worth of training and living. The dudes that run this race are pretty special. This isn't some corny ass obstacle course filled 5k. 

 

Haven't used their gear so can't comment on that personally, but I've read and heard plenty of good stuff about it. 

 

Ayo - don't understand why you said this appears to be geared towards people wanting to identify with a political statement. How did you come to that conclusion? Just because a lot of vets and first responders are drawn to it?
