Recon: Wraith Pack in MultiCam LiteLok
I was caught off guard by this pack when I first picked it up and noticed how lightweight it was. The Wraith comes in 500D Cordura or the 100% Nylon LiteLok which is fantastic. Grey Ghost Gear offers their packs in many color and fabric options. This pack comes in Coyote Brown, Kryptek Typhon and MultiCam.
We are pleased to announce a MASSIVE addition to our 3000 Followers Giveaway. The 1st Place winner will have their choice of one of these two amazing Grey Ghost Gear packs, either in addition to the existing 1st Place prize.
Entries are being accepted now and the first will be posted up in the beginning of October. Although entries can be submitted up to the end date, the earlier you get them in the greater chance you have of winning.

My humble SAK.
This is the piece of kit that I have owned/ carried longer than anything else (17yrs). I picked it up in Savognin, Switzerland back in 1997 aged 13. (I was there competing in an international trampoline competition, the Nissen Cup. Our accommodation was the nuclear fall out bunker under the village/town? church).
Unable to remember how many Swiss Francs this cost or what model it is but it has undoubtedly been good value as it has been across the globe with me. Every tool has been used for it’s intended purpose (and more). The only thing that has broken is the spring on the scissor (about 8yrs ago) and the scales are definitely showing their age.
I’ve been umming & aahing about replacing it for years. But as I haven’t I can only assume that it’s been up to every task I’ve ever asked it to do. It has been too good to replace & continues to be part of my EDC either in my pocked or bag.
The only other thing left to say is that I must have been a very wise 13yr old to make such a good investment.
Together with its little brother Praetorian Honor, Pack Config has designed a patch to support the very worthy organisation Team Rubicon. All of the net profit from each purchase will be donated to Team Rubicon. Our aim here at Pack Config is to raise enough to fund a number of Domestic Deployment and International Deployment Kits, details of what these kits contain can be found here.
Help us support Team Rubicon by making an order today. The 100% embroidered patch is 2.5” square (size is still TBC) and comes with hook & loop backing for easy attachment. Made in the USA by a highly reputable patch manufacturer the quality will be outstanding.
BY ORDERING YOU ARE MAKING A PRE-ORDER PAYMENT.
The patches have not been produced yet, but all orders should be fulfilled by the end of August (customers will be kept updated via their PayPal email address, or other email if specified in the payment process).
If you are an international customer (including US outlying islands), please email us here for payment options.
About the Patch
The TR construction helmet is an iconic part of the a typical deployment kit. The crossed spades represent the hard, physical work that the team often undertake. A Roman style crown (or corona) surrounds everything. Crowns like these were rewarded to the soldiers who were first to step on an enemies battlements, first to step into an enemy camp, etc. this relates to Team Rubicons ability to move fast and often be the first on the scene of disaster, echoing their slogan “Bridge the Gap”.
Keep your eye out for various Team Rubicon themed posts over the next week or so…
