Carryology Classified: Join our Exclusive Community Today!
We are super chuffed and honored to see how our Carryology community has grown over the years. More and more are geeking out over all things carry, and we wanted to find a way for us like-minded Carryologists to come together and jam on our passions. So we’ve launched Carryology Classified, a digital hub where our community can unite and get geeky over everything from technical fabrics to carry hacks and personal carry loadouts, and score exclusive discounts, sneak peeks on upcoming projects, and so much more.
So just what exactly can you do in this group?
Answers and advice
If you have a carry-related question or need advice, this is the place to find answers and helpful guidance. Our savvy carry community features a broad range of enthusiasts, from collectors to designers and people just getting into the carry world. There’s always a chance to learn something new, share expertise, and benefit from others’ tried-and-tested carry experiences.
Exclusive first dibs, discounts and behind-the-scenes access
As mentioned above, Carryology Classified is also the place to enjoy sneak peeks of upcoming products and projects, including Carryology collabs. Additionally you’ll have the chance to scoop up limited edition patches, products and more, as well as enjoy exclusive carry discounts and giveaways from a variety of brands.
Share your passion
Want to share your carry collection? Spread the buzz with an unboxing? Showcase your honed tweaks and hacks? You’ll find plenty of people that understand your love of waxed canvas, your obsession with AustriAlpin Cobra buckles, or the true mastery of your personalized EDC setup. A community that will be just as excited as you are when a carry package arrives in the mail. A community that appreciates that new carry smell, and agrees that no, it’s not excessive to have ten packs in black multi-cam. Okay, maybe just a little excessive, but we won’t judge if you don’t…
Jamming with brands
Ever wanted to ask a brand why they designed something in a particular way or chose a certain fabric? What inspires them or any insights they might have for getting into the carry industry yourself? Carryology Classified will be hosting a variety of Live Q&As with brand heads, makers, designers, adventurers and more, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask those carry questions you’ve always wanted to know the answers to.
Swap, sell and buy
This is a big one, folks! It’s long been requested that a space could be set up for our community to buy, sell or trade carry. We’ve heard you, and have set up Carryology Classified as a digital hub for enthusiasts to buy, sell and swap carry pieces. From work-friendly messengers to outdoor backpacks, you never know what might come up or where. So keep your eyes peeled for awesome pieces popping up and the chance to score a bargain or two (especially for those who may be able to avoid pricey customs charges by finding a piece locally).
So those Q&As we mentioned? We’re kicking things off with a bang and true carry royalty.

Live Q&A with GORUCK’S Jason McCarthy: Wednesday, August 29th at 2 PM – 2:45 PM MDT
GORUCK is known for its military-tough gear.
