GORUCK Workshop – The American Waterproof Jacket

GORUCK has expanded their clothing line with the cadre-approved American Waterproof Jacket.

It’s made in Spokane, Washington, by K-L Manufacturing who have created specialized clothing for US special operators for decades. Back in the 90s, real cool guys were issued lightweight Black Gore-Tex jacket, also manufactured in Spokane but by Adventure Tech. While those were simple designs, this model has a lot more features.

Features:

• Tough & technical jacket made from ToughShield Fabric that is waterproof, windproof, and fully protective from any weather
• Full zip front with lock down waterproof zipper to keep weather out
• Reinforced hood with hidden adjustable elastic hem
• Two exterior front pockets with waterproof zippers
• Interior chest pocket with waterproof zipper
• Two Interior map pockets
• Internal inspirational quote from General Patton
• Subtle GORUCK logo on bottom seam
• Made in the USA
• Comes with the GORUCK Scars Lifetime Guarantee

When you look at the price, remember, it was made in the USA.

Available in any color, as long as it’s Black.

    Gen. Patton called, he said he wants it to be in Olive Drab.

    2.5-layer construction, not going to be very durable.

    I would have ordered today. If it were available in any color but black.

    Since Arc’teryx’s Interstate Jacket is $499 and not made in the USA, this sounds like a better choice, not to mention the guarantee.

    • Lasse says:

      The interstate is a 3L. I’d rather compare it to the Zeta SL which I think retails for $299 and is also a 2.5L.

      But it’s hard to compare anything when one uses industry leading WPB fabric and the other uses their own name with no previous history or additional info.

    Looks pretty nice.
    Anybody tried their pants or boots, any good?

    • SouthpawByNW says:

      Boots are good for daily use, but for distances over 10 miles at once then not so much. I did swap out the soles recently, and will test again. I didn’t develop any blisters, but on a recent ruck my buddy had a few large ones develop after about 12 miles. Pants are well made and survived multiple GoRuck events without any problems.

    No pit zips or vents?
