‘Cotton Sweatshirt’ is an oxymoron. Cotton is the last material you want to be wearing if you’re gonna get wet, either through sweat or rain. It’s highly absorbent, which is why bath towels are cotton, and it retains moisture with the best of ‘em. With good reason outdoorsmen and Special Forces soldiers alike will tell you the maxim: cotton’s rotten.
The Rucking Hoodie, built out of Polartec, is a sweatshirt that wicks your sweat away and prevents the absorption of moisture.
Fair warning: it makes a terrible bath towel, so don’t plan on using it for that. But if you go for a ruck, and you sweat, then you hit the bar, you’ll be glad you aren’t wearing rotten cotton.

Scars Lifetime Guarantee
We use premium fabrics and premium threads and we reinforce zippers and take additional steps in construction to ensure that our apparel thrives during a lifetime of abuse. It’s never meant for a landfill and we don’t build it with that in mind. We believe if you buy something for one season, you can wear it all the seasons of your life.
SCARS WILL REALLY REPAIR MY APPAREL FOREVER?
We’ll happily patch up any holes or reinforce any stitching to keep you on your way in our Built in the USA GORUCK Apparel. If you’re actually able to wear our apparel out and we cannot repair it, we will replace it, free of charge. Don’t think of this as a pure replacement program, think of this as a repair program. We build the best and want it to last forever, with you.
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
Massive fire damage and mutilation are not covered as a matter of policy, but it’s always a conversation. If an ember from a Colorado campfire sparks your direction and then there’s a hole, we’ll happily patch it up, free of charge. If you send us a pile of ashes, that’s a slightly different story. If you share that story, we’ll get you back in action at a discount.
And we’ll send you a note of congratulations and do 50 push-ups, in your honor.
