Tough, technical shorts overbuilt from our ToughDry™ 2-way stretch fabric, same as the Challenge Pants, that packs down to nothing and dries lightning fast. Complete with streamlined cargo pockets, easy clean back pockets, and a diamond gusset for added mobility.



  • Tough, technical shorts
  • Super fast-drying, abrasion resistant with two-way stretch
  • ToughDry™ fabric is the same material used in our Simple Pants, Simple Shorts, and Challenge Pants
  • Cargo pockets feature interior drain holes and zip securely to the back
  • Diamond gusset (diamond shaped piece sewn into the crotch area) for extra stretch during high steps and squats
  • Horizontal front pockets so stuff doesn't fall out
  • Rear welt pockets that flip inside out for quick cleaning
  • 10.5" inseam (fit is true to size, same as Challenge Pants)
  • Contoured waistband for better fit
  • Made in USA: Compare our pricing and performance to other brands made overseas with huge margins on top of many middlemen and this piece would cost 3x what it does now. Welcome to building the best in the United States of America.

Scars 6 Month Apparel Guarantee

Up to 6 months: We’ll replace 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; however, excessive abuse will be replaced at our discretion. 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 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 the best things in life get better with time.
