I bought the GR0 Rucking kit at $245 for the "Xmas in July Sale." Not sure where you got it for $210. The bag alone was $199 marked down from $265(!) and the included rucking kit is on sale for $97 (From $121), but included in the "kit" it drops that price to like, $45! That makes the GR0 kit really the best value of all the other "deals" in my opinion. The only "bummer" is that the shipping label that GORUCK printed has my name chopped off, but contains the company name/address. I'll have to find the mail room guys and hope to intercept the mysterious box before it goes amiss. My intended purpose (as I may have stated) is for a new EDC bag. While the GR1 may "fit" me better at 6'2", I don't need (want?) all that space for daily carry. The dimensions of the GR0 are only slightly smaller, and the bag is MUCH cheaper, so I went that route. Hoping it works out! EDIT: It looks like the GR Echo Rucking Kit is $210. That's a $52 savings over full price. The GR0 kit is normally $386, and priced at $245, a savings of $141...that's a huge deal!
