Pants represent the best of the best as far as leg covering undergarment attire, landing them a place in the coveted ‘armor kit’ category of RUST lore. The stylish visual that we have today dates back to April of 2015, with other notable items such as the hoodie and shorts also getting a makeover around the same time.
Pants are, defensively speaking, the highest across the protection spectrum type for an armor slot of this designation. They are a direct upgrade from both the Burlap Trousers and Hide Pants, having significantly higher stats in the projectile, cold, and radiation categories.
There are multitudes of ways to acquire your first set of pants in RUST, ranging from but not limited to mid to high-tier crates as well as drops from mid to high-tier scientists. Players may research them at the research table or invest scrap into a Tier 1 Work Bench to learn them.
Pants are the pinnacle of skinnable popularity in RUST with more variations available on the RUST in-game store and steam community marketplace each week.
