We received an email last month from retired United States Marine Lance Cpl. Kleven:


Let me first start by telling you my family and I love this Gunny Tour of Duty Pack. It just saved my life!

I live in Las Vegas and I was on my way to work this morning on my Harley when a tour bus cut off the SUV in front of me. As the chain reaction goes, they hit their brakes so I downshifted and hit my brakes. I was going about 65-75 mph on the freeway. When I did that, the motorcycle came out from under me. I remembered that if you go down on a motorcycle on the pavement you have to try to turn on your back, spread out, and relax. Because of the Gunny Pack I had on I was saved from most of the road rash and broken bones and most likely a broken neck! Also, because I was wearing the pack higher up on my back it saved me from hitting my head on the pavement. This pack saved my life! Not to mention I had three energy drinks in the middle pouch and they didn’t open or puncture or anything! A testament to a quality product.”

Thank you for your service Lance Cpl. Kleven. We’re very glad to hear you weren’t badly injured. Be careful out there!
