Primary Features

Challenge Pant

Scars 6 Month Apparel Guarantee

Up to 6 months: We’ll repair or replace (at our Scars team’s discretion) your GORUCK Built in the USA apparel for free. No matter how many Challenges you do, no matter how much you abuse them. We stand behind what we build.

After 6 months: Defects in materials or workmanship will continue to be replaced or repaired at our discretion. Excessive abuse will be repaired for a reasonable fee. We define reasonable by saying we’re not in the business of making enemies. We define excessive by saying it can’t survive a Kill Bill Hattori Hanzo sword or bullets or probably some of the other things we haven’t heard of yet that you’ll subject it to.

The bottom line: We’ve spent two and a half years testing GORUCK apparel at our Challenges and it holds up. You can pay less for cheaper stuff that will fail – brand whatever pants and the seams will bust and then you’ll buy another cheap pair that maybe even costs a lot of money. And the cycle continues. We believe in building the best and we believe scars are character and should be repaired, not replaced. The best things in life get better with time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible shirt I was able to first wear these pants in a true ruck during the Normandy event. I wore a compression pants underneath, and this on top, and it was the only thing I needed. After (what felt like) hours of low crawls through sand, seaweed and dead seagulls, high crawls up cliffs, and all sorts of fun shenanigans, these pants came out of it like nothing had even happened. I was warm the entire time (even after getting in the Channel), and never over-heated. The pants dried off immediately, and kept everything I had in my pockets safe and secure...and the best part? After crawling through sand, I didn't end up with pockets full of sand like I did in my woodlands. Great pants, wish I had more, PLEASE MAKE MORE!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fit but has a construction/design flaw I love the fit of these, they are right on for 34". I am 5'11" and about 198lbs and love the fit and length of these. They offer the perfect amount of room with out excess baggage. My one complaint: They need to beef up the stitching around the top of the hand pockets. I always carry my knife and the clip has worn down the stitching and has come apart. If they address that one construction issue then I will have zero gripes with this pant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These pants deliver Male-5'8" 195 lb 34x32 pants. These pants deliver on their promise. Lightweight but super tough. Dried extremely quick when wet. Took them on a 15 mile Yosemite hike without rubbing, chafing or tugging on any areas. Side zipper pockets are placed perfectly and zippers are awesome. Front main pockets are angled awkwardly, so reaching for a wallet or phone is difficult. Fitted waistband is a plus. Other outdoor pants have the adjustable "mini-belt" but these are built for action and thus its a good thing not to have - although it'd be nice to have a wider range of sizes available for optimal fit. Fabric is super light for quick dry but makes a loud swishing sound while walking. You'll notice it when you wear them around the house, but on the trail or in a challenge it'll be far from your mind.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Pant - Better Options Out There Big fan of both GoRuck and manufacturing in the USA, but not big on these pants. I found that the upper leg was restricted enough to limit pocket function and cause some discomfort. This is a complete personal preference, but I also found that the straight leg design was borderline billowy from the knee down and would prefer to see a moderate taper with a smaller leg opening. If you want a quick-drying, made in USA pant with a classic fit then these are a great option. If you're looking for a more modern cut, I'd recommend looking to Patagucci or Arc'teryx (neither of which manufacture in North America anymore).
