We all need a boost from time to time. For some it is coffee, others tea and then there is the energy drink crowd. I know some folks who pound these drinks all day long. Most of these drinks have niacin and caffeine that will give you the jitters and eventually result in a crash. For that reason, I stay away from them. Recently, a buddy of mine threw me a bottle of RUCKPACK. I was hesitant to try it because of my previous experiences with energy drinks. Once he explained to me what it was and what it wasn’t I gave in and took the shot. It tasted like a tangy peach flavor. Not too bad. The rest of the day was spent at the range in hot weather. Throughout that time, I felt energized and alert. I never got the jitters or had a crash.

RUCKPACK has its origins in the military. It was created by Major Robert Dyer, USMC combat veteran. He founded the company in 2008 because he saw that combat troops in the field needed something to help them recover quickly from fatigue. So he put his head together with other MARSOC Marines to produce a “power-packed vitamin & energy shot capable of delivering maximum performance, caffeine-free.” After years of research and testing, RUCKPACK was debuted on Veterans Day 2011. This is no coincidence as the company in 80% veteran owned. RUCKPACK was a large success and has received praises from members from all branches of the military and is now used by athletes and other wellness minded individuals.
