We took the best of workwear blue jeans - the toughness, the simplicity - and chose a tough as nails 2-way stretch fabric that packs down to nothing and dries lightning fast. They’ve got articulated knees for a greater range of motion and a curved waistband for a better fit — when you move, they move with you.

The same performance fabric as the Challenge Pant in an athletic jean cut you can wear everyday, all day. The Simple Pant keeps the Challenge Pant's articulated knees, but trades the cargo pockets and diamond gusset for back pockets and a simple, straightforward look.

  • Tough and simple
  • Fits like your favorite pair of jeans
  • Back pockets and finished belt loops
  • Fast drying, abrasion resistant, two-way stretch fabric
  • Articulated knees for greater range of motion
  • Horizontal pockets so stuff doesn't fall out
  • Curved waistband for better fit
  • Made in the USA


Simple Pants Explained

Blue jeans are a good look when they don’t put diamonds and sparklers all over ‘em. Simple and classic is better, and I’ve been a Levi’s 501 wearer for a long time.

But my 501’s get wet and they’re twice as heavy. I’m on the move and they fight back. If I’m rucking or biking to the bar, they slow me down and I’ll be lucky if I don’t blow out another crotch, same as the last pair. The Simple Pants are the reason I’ve traded in my 501’s.

We took the best of workwear blue jeans - the toughness, the simplicity - and chose a tough as nails 2-way stretch fabric that packs down to nothing and dries lightning fast. When you move, they move with you -- on a bike and on foot from bus to bus, subway to subway, town to town.

And when you have to stretch to pick up what Monster left behind.

Be a hard target, not an easy one. Why horizontal pockets? If you’re on the move and your pants (or shorts) have side loading pockets, you’re an easy target for pickpockets and the devil of cracked screens.

It’s always better to be a hard target. Wallet in my left pocket, phone in my right. Thieves and gravity, go elsewhere.

If the only miles you get are scrolling with your thumbs, these are not the pants for you. But if you’re the active type and you’re tough on things, the Simple Pants, like GR1, are the new standard of excellence in performance and American manufacturing.

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.
