The GORUCK Challenge requires some specialized gear many of us do not own. In order to help with that, we have forged a partnership with Half Moon Outfitters and their extremely knowlegable staff.
Half Moon will host a GORUCK Gear Night happy hour on Thursday, Ocober 9, 2014 at 7:30 at their store at 2912 Divine Street in Columbia (in the heart of Shandon). Refreshments will be provided. Gear reps — including Salomon, Suunto, and Arcteryx and possibly more — will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice on gear options at different price points. We’ve asked Half Moon to be prepared with options for each of the “suggested” items on the GORUCK list. For example: SmartWool socks vs something different — is it worth the extra money, or will something less expensive suffice for 12 hours? Durango in Charlotte put together this list last year, for reference.
Half Moon has graciously offered us discounts:
- 15% at the Gear Night
- 10% for F3 guys up through the GORUCK Challenge (November 21st)
- 20% for any bulk order item with a minimum of 20 purchased
We’re a little over 2 months out from our first GORUCK! Use this time wisely, and let’s have a great showing at Half Moon for some great 2ndF!
