Let’s review the American Training Shorts from GORUCK.

Whatever sports/workout you engage in, wearing the right sportswear can make the most out of your exercise. Appropriate activewear makes it more natural for you to move, keeping you cozy and cool, and nothing gets more satisfying than wearing shorts during workouts, especially in summer.

GORUCK American Training Shorts Navy and Camo Review (16)
The GORUCK American Training Shorts are here. These have a liner, and a pretty short inseam (7.5"). They are made in the USA – and they look pretty darn good too.

Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:

Men’s American Training Shorts (Dark Camo) Men’s American Training Shorts in Dark Camo. These look good. You see the American flag? These are made in the USA.
Men’s American Training Shorts (Black) Black is a good looking color option also. All of these shorts have a liner, and a 7.5" inseam.
Men’s American Training Shorts (Navy) GORUCK makes a lot of gear in this Navy color. It's a nice dark blue.
Men’s American Training Shorts (Charcoal) How about Charcoal? That's a dark grey color - and they've got that also. Are these shorts tough? All of these come with the GORUCK Scars lifetime guarantee.
Women’s American Training Shorts (Black) The Women’s American Training Shorts have a very short 2.375" inseam. Otherwise, all the same, great features (made from ToughDry Stretch and these have a liner.)

Let’s take a look.

Training Shorts from GORUCK – Overview

GORUCK captured the hearts of many with their rugged rucksack/backpack. But making the best and the most rigid rucking gears did not end with their backpacks. GORUCK included training shorts in the list. They even managed to combine both tough and comfortable in these training shorts giving you a fantastic look and feel.

These training shorts also create another buzz in the CrossFit world as they bring the best feeling and performance. They fit great, non-restrictive, and can be your favorite everyday shorts.

These are 7.5″ inseam. In my book that’s “shortie shorts”.

It’s definitely an “above the quad” fit.

Here’s a photo (provided by GORUCK):

With a 7.5" inseam – these are shorty shorts. It’s an above the quad fit.

They’re making some of the classic GORUCK colors available like black (of course), navy, charcoal, and more.

They’re also trying out some new looks. The Dark Camo color shown here is particularly good looking.

It’s not any sort of official US military camo scheme – but that’s ok the camo look here is strictly for style.

Here’s the Dark Camo color. It’s got a drawstring and an interior liner.

How do these work in the gym – or in the field?

They are great – comfortable, stretchy with a loose fit so there is no restriction in your movement.

After test driving the Black color, I picked up a pair of Navy and Dark Camo too.

Men’s American Training Shorts

Mens’ American Training Shorts come in different colors of dark camo, black, navy, and charcoal, all with the American flag sewn into the left leg’s bottom. The outside of the shorts is made of ToughStretch fabric, which is 86% polyester and 14% spandex. The polyester gives it its toughness, while the spandex gives it flexibility.

They come with a flexible waistband using an internal drawcord, and the waistband is stretchy and very comfortable. Another important highlight is the hidden zippered pocket within the right side pocket where you can put your keys while working out. They have a 7.5″ inseam and a built-in performance brief liner that is soft and dries quickly.

Being made from GORUCK’s ToughStretch fabric, you can bet these will last a long time.

They are low-rise, have a 2.375″ inseam, and a built-in liner for extra coverage. A zippered pocket on the right-hand seam is concealed to keep small items like keys or money. They have a subtle GORUCK logo on the bottom right hem, and they won’t pill against sharp surfaces like a rucksack or barbell.
