Just like the Simple Pant only shorter. Built from a tough as nails 2-way stretch fabric that packs down to nothing and dries lightning fast.
SIZING NOTICE: THESE SHORTS RUN SMALLER IN THE WAIST AND YOU SHOULD ORDER UP ONE FULL SIZE / 2 INCHES (EX: IF YOU'RE NORMALLY 32, GO WITH 34. IF YOU'RE NORMALLY 34, GO WITH 36, ETC.)
The Simple Short is perfect for warm weather rucking and performs just as well in the gym as it does out at the bar. They're built from the same performance fabric as the Challenge Pant with all the same pockets and features of the Simple Pant.
- Tough and simple
- Back pockets and finished belt loops
- Fast drying, abrasion resistant, two-way stretch fabric
- Horizontal pockets so stuff doesn't fall out
- 10" inseam
- Curved waistband for better fit
- Made in the USA
Simple Shorts Explained
Here’s what I love about them...
1. My phone and wallet don't fall out of the pockets.
The pockets are like jeans pockets and not douchey gym shorts pockets that flap around all over the place.
That means with the Simple Shorts your phone and your wallet won’t fall out, and if you’re on the subway, you’re a hard target for that pickpocketer.
2. They dry super fast.
When Monster and the gang and I ruck to the bar in the middle of a Florida summer, we show up drenched. We stop, I change my shirt (I’m civilized, people, and A/C is very cold here … first world problems). By the time I have a new T on, these shorts are dry. Yes, they dry (almost) that fast.
3. Simple Shorts > Ranger Panties
I love Ranger Panties, too. I wear them to bed every night, lucky Emily lol. But Ranger Panties aren’t for work and they’re not for the bar.
Sometimes I like to ruck from home to work and later to dinner. Simple Shorts, just like Simple Pants, are a little more grown up. To really class them up, wear a belt with a badass Reverse Flag buckle.
4. They're tough.
This fabric was developed by a serious mill, and it was originally intended for rock climbers. When the industry figured out that the fabric doesn’t fail, they stopped using it so that you would buy more pairs of other shorts that would fail. It hasn’t worked on me, though, I have 8 pairs of these in my closet, already. These and the Simple and Challenge Pants are built of the same fabric.
I wear them every day and Monster thinks they're awesome, too.

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.
