Anyone know where I can get one brand new?
Try cruising over to Reddit's Goruck section. I see some people posting packs for sale there at times. Otherwise, maybe Fleabay?
I'm assuming you mean the older "sand" colorway that has been discontinued. They also make a Coyote-ish color that is still in production; just have to watch the GR website for them to come back in stock.
Or post a "want to buy" here in the forum.
Are you a GRT? If so, post a wanted ad on Ruckmall.
Try dropping them a line. You never know if they might have material or a single left over in the back.
Already talked to them, not available. Might just get one in black. I would want a sternum strap and not going to put a black one on a tan bag.
They have them made overseas and do distribution out of a facility in Seattle, WA. They don't do any sewing or custom work in the US, so it's just a matter of what they have in inventory. Occasionally a new one gets returned and shows up on the website, but it's gone in minutes.
They said about three weeks ago that they would have a new shipment within two months, including coyote and grey. So you can expect them pretty soon at this point. Their estimates are pretty good.
Note that there is a new design in the works with hints being dropped around the place but so far no good photos that I've seen. You may want to wait for that ... or not. For some bags a new design means the old one goes cheap, but for others like TAD the older designs are desired and only get more expensive.
I thought Goruck was made in USA? Also, you heard a new version of the GR1 is coming out?
I've never heard of Goruck bags being made overseas. Are you sure of this?

From Goruck's website:
We proudly build GORUCK gear in the USA, prove it in the harshest conditions in the world, and offer a lifetime guarantee as proof that quality is life and death to us.
By Jason, GORUCK’s Founder
We’re proud to build the best, and to do it right here in the USA with American workers and American materials.
Are you indicating that this is not accurate?

AFAIK, GR packs used to be solely made in Bozeman, MT -- but that is now the design shop. Sewing is outsourced to other pack/gear makers within the U.S. to keep up with demand. And yes, Seattle is their shipping warehouse. At least, that's my limited understanding of the situation as a consumer.
I'd be very surprised if they are manufacturing their packs overseas. Not saying it isn't possible, but without seeing proof firsthand, I'm inclined to take that rumor with a grain (or many grains) of salt.
My error. They were making them offshore for a while, had problems with them, and moved back to use several shops in the US.
I asked Goruck customer service whether they were discounting bags because they were coming out with something new and they said they had more batches due shortly, but that there were new designs of the basic rucks coming out in a couple months. Their own words. I asked for more info but they said none was available.
Well, now my curiosity is piqued.
They haven't always been 100% honest on their website (zippergate). Now that the focus is on events, I would not be surprised if they looked into offshore production.
Yes correct, things are going out from Seattle( I thought from the mountains in Bozeman!) And my Bullet 15 is on a truck with FedEx!
I thought they were made in montana?
Can't believe the interweb anymore lol
New batch of sand GR1 back in stock on the official website awwww yeah!!!
(yes, I realize this thread is two years old. Still pertinent)
They've never been made overseas; it's not part of their business model. They did have Zippergate as mentioned in a prior post, but they've always been pretty upfront about everything.
They have changed domestic suppliers, but still in the US.
Supposedly the "Sand" Color is back on the GORUCK Site: https://www.goruck.com/gr1/
