GORUCK previously released the Simple Pants Heavy and I grabbed a pair immediately. It wasn’t until last weekend that I were able to use them in an event and they were phenomenal. Temperatures dipped to the low 40s and there were no issues being cold. Before that I had been wearing them out when it was chilly and they kept me plenty warm.
One of the things that surprised me with the Simple Heavy pants was the color. They’re not as shiny as the standard pants and seem to make less “noise” when walking around. These are both things I really like about them.
Today, GORUCK released the Challenge Pants Heavy and as much as I don’t need them I want them. The extra pockets on challenge pants are great for events and with winter coming they would definitely see plenty of use.
The $195 price tag isn’t ideal but now that all GORUCK gear has a lifetime warranty it’s reassuring to know I could beat these senseless at events and have them repaired or replaced by GORUCK. As long as I don’t gain (or lose) too much weight the GORUCK should technically last me as long as I’m taking part in GORUCK events.
