I had been looking for some Public Rec alternatives and found Rugged Black. I initially ordered the 33W-30L, as that's my usual pant size. When I received them, the waist was a little bigger than I liked. Due to the elasticity in the waist I exchanged the order for the 32" waist and they fit better. I think I could have gone with the 31" waist and they would have fit as well. The fabric is really soft and they look nice enough to wear out for a casual look. I'm looking forward to wearing these on a 10 hour flight coming up. They'll definitely beat wearing regular pants on a long flight. I'm 5' 6" and the 30" length is a tad longer than I like. I'll likely have the hem raised a bit. For the look, feel and price compared to the other guys I'm very happy with Rugged Black.
I really like the performance Joggers. I ordered three additional pairs. They are very comfortable and fit well.
I've owned these pants for about 6 weeks now, and they are easily the best pair of pants I've ever owned. I love the fit. I don't really consider them joggers because the ankles aren't cuffed. But they are tapered, but they're not skinny or tight to the leg. the leg opening is about 7-7 1/8" across. They look really sharp but are also stretchy and comfortable. I wear them out to eat, to coach my kids' games, golfing, working on house projects. I've slept in them. I've had three friends ask about them already.
A little more info. I'm about 6'-3 210. I bought 36W/34L. The overall length is about 42.5". My iphone 14 pro max fits in the pockets. The pocket zippers are high quality but I don't really zip the pockets often at all. I think I'd rather not have the zippers on there. The back pockets have a little flap which is perfect. it stays closed without a snap or zip or anything needed. I keep my wallet in it all the time.
What a great purchase. Better than expected!!!
I received three products. Pants, shorts, Hoodie. All were great products and I received great service. WOW!!!!
Pants are amazingly comfortable, great looking and well designed. And best of all wash good and look perfect right out of the dryer. No fuss pants that just perform.
I came across these pants when I was actually about to buy a pair from another brand. I found a review that compared the two and decided to buy both so I could pick which was best for me.
Hands down, the Rugged Black pants won! Super comfortable. The length is perfect. I'm about to buy two more pairs!
i was curious so I order some shorts, they are nice specially with liners, I also orders the tshirts, totally for the gym the gorilla logo let's the world know we're serious about gym time... out of curiosity I let my daughter try the shorts: they fit perfectly, she announced, non chalantly that they hers now.. so back to order two more... with liners... way to go dude, one can go commando all day and nothing is risked... what more could one ask for?
I love my new pants! The feel and fit are just what I have been searching for.
These are great for just about any activity in or out of the house. Wash in cold water and light drying come out looking perfect!!
Pants stitched better than public rec. Very comfortable.
I was looking for comfortable everyday pants that are pet hair resistant and these fit the bill perfectly! I mostly work from home and I have to change pants before going out b/c our Golden Retriever sheds like nobody's business. But, now I can go out and have a lunch and run errands without having to change pants! 5 Stars! They do run long, so make sure you pay attention to the length.
I have been looking for something like these pants for a while. I wanted something comfortable like sweats, but with a nice look for traveling.These pants are great! They are comfortable enough to wear on a long flight and waiting around in an airport, but still have a stylish look.I also appreciate that the sizing allows a perfect fit. So many other athletic type pants are too short for me and do not allow custom sizing of the waist and inseam.
