In a world where gym shirts were too soft...
In 2012, we fell deeply in love with Obstacle Course Racing. It ripped us off the treadmill, out of our comfort zone, and unleashed us into the wild outdoors. Events like Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, BattleFrog, and Savage Race tested us and our gear to the limits. We learned that cotton shirts got soggy in the mud, and that gym shirts got shredded during barbed wire crawls.
We set out to make a tougher performance shirt
MudGear was born to do what nobody else could do; make a performance shirt resilient enough to withstand outdoor race conditions and tough enough to help protect racers from the cuts, rope burns, and other injuries common in obstacle course racing.
They Said It Couldn't Be Done - They Forgot About American Muscle
The American apparel industry has a long history of quality engineering, but cheap labor gave rise to importing. While others cut costs and cut corners, we knew the world's toughest and best performance shirts should be designed and made in the USA. Leveraging decades of experience with top brands, our designers are experts in the technology of performance shirt construction.
Using Premium Fabrics and Strong Construction
The difference comes from starting with American fabric blends that are chosen for their durability and comfort. Next, we engineered our shirts to achieve specific performance results for their breathabillity, moisture management, and abrasion resistance. We designed an athletic cut profile that is optimized for athletic performance and comfort. In layman's terms, our performance shirts look and feel great.
And Tested In The Worst Conditions Possible
Normal testing of performance apparel involves stretching them to measure the material strength and passing them through a simple abrasion test to see how quickly they show wear. Our testing involves putting them on the backs of the world's top obstacle racers and trail runners for trips up and down mountains all day in all types of weather. We test for wicking by fully submerging them in muddy water, and we test abrasion by climbing up and down ropes, over walls, and through mud.
Through It All, We Were Made Tougher
Nobody said it was going to be easy. We heard a lot of "it's not done that way" and "it's not practical". But all the trials and trails made us tougher, and we're now proud to offer the world's best shirts for Spartan Race, trail running, rucking, or whatever outdoor adventure you think of next.
Size and Fit
The MudGear Race Jersey is intentionally fitted and tapered. Use the size chart as a guide, but when close or in doubt, go a size larger. Remember that a fitted race cut shirt will accentuate every muscle and hug every fat roll. Plan accordingly.
Great race kit
Excellent quality, held up and was extremely comfortable during its maiden voyage- a Spartan Beast.

The compression socks have really helped my longer runs and recovery. Definitely recommend them!
Great product, better service.
I ordered the same shirt in two sizes as i was not sure what i needed. The shirt in one size was perfect. Great quality. Have used it a few times and it is fantastic. The team then offered to swap out the other shirt very seamlessly. I liked the first one so much i got another.
First run with first MudGear shirt pays off
Took my new shirt out for a trail run last night. I thought the short sleeves might be too spare for a surprisingly cool SoCal evening, but it kept me warm and dry, doing a great job of wicking away sweat. Very comfortable as well, fitting my bulky torso without pinching under the arms. I bought the short sleeves because long-sleeved shirts were out of stock in Large size, and I'm sold. Once LS in LG is available again, I'll get one of those too.
Great shirt and great company
Company/purchase experience appears to really be customer satisfaction focused, reached out to make sure happy with product Followed their size instructions, fit was perfect Gear - one of best shirts: 12 mile easy run - zero chafing Spartan super (dry conditions) - zero chafing
