AOG Q&A with Travis Rolph of Mayflower Research & Consulting

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Travis Rolph is an old friend of mine. When he told me he was going to run the Grand to Grand Ultra race I must admit, I was a bit skeptical. That’s a lot of race for a first time out. But I also know that nothing stops Bad Travis. I mean, the guy’s got a posse. But I digress. He did it. The stories he’s told me about the race have been fascinating and I’m glad to say that he shared some of the experience with some other guys that I like, Adventure Operations Group.


At AOG our mission is to train for “beyond normal limits” mindset and performance. Drawing inspiration and influence from the Special Operations community, as well as other elite performers and outdoor athletes, we lead individuals and teams to accomplish more than they imagine possible by applying “SOF Focus”. The principles of SOF focus are grounded in the truths of Special Operations Warriors and in the mindset of constant preparation and improving capabilities that all elite performers possess.

AOG recently caught up with Travis Rolph, retired 5th SFG Green Beret, owner of Mayflower Research & Consulting and modern day adventurer, to hear about his most recent mission, competing in the Grand to Grand Ultra race. The Grand to Grand ultra is a 7 day stage race that covers approximately 169 miles over an epic course.

Mayflower Low-Vis E&R Bag

Thursday, January 31st, 2013


Mayflower knows how to build an E&R bag and now they’ve upped their game with the official release of their Low-Vis model. This grab and go bag looks like pretty much any mild mannered computer bag. But it’s designed specifically to carry the tools to get you safely out of Dodge and back home.


The main compartment will carry a 15″ screen lap top computer or smaller but it does so much more. In addition to a removable shoulder strap there is a fixed carrying handle as well as two external open top stash pouches and two external flat pouches that combined, are designed to discretely carry seven M4 or similar sized magazines. The top flap is designed to carry maps or other 8 1/2″ x 11″ documents in a zippered enclosure and also features a flip out velcro IFF panel for attaching flags, IR devices etc. Internally the Low-Vis E&R Bag is divided into one large pile velcro lined pocket and two small compartments with d-rings for securing essential equipment.


Made in the USA, the Low-Vis E&R Bag is available in these nondescript colors: Grey, Black, Dark Blue, Dark Green.

With over 24,000 hits yesterday, it was impossible to make final adjustments to the shopping cart system but you can now at least look at their wares. However, they won’t be able to take orders until Monday thanks to an IT contractor. Now I know why I used to pick on the AV club guys in High School.
