[Top 10] Kenshi Best Pants (And How To Get Them) (2024)

You need them to protect your feet, legs, and groin. You can’t be a tough warrior with both legs either crippled or chopped off, that’s why you gotta wear a good ol’ pair of pants.

There are also pants that don’t offer too much armor but they offer useful buffs, like stealth or a nice bonus to martial arts. Anyways, let’s start with our first pantaloons:

10. Ninja Pants

Nothing special at first, just some pants that give a decent bonus to stealth. You usually use these pants when you’re playing as a pacifist character, just sneaking inside of ancient laboratories and getting out with loot and without a scratch. Useful for stealing stuff, not so much for fighting.

Why these pants are useful:

  • 1.10x stealth bonus
  • Don’t weigh anything
  • Useful for stealing stuff in ancient locations

9. Gi Pants
