Calling all Rangers or maybe Army folks, hard to say. What are roughs? I need to pack 5 pair and the Navy doesn't use this term.

Partner is headed to a joint services thing as soon as Sunday. Its all very last minute and we recently got the packing list. He is not yet moored from being in the middle of the ocean so I am in charge of this for now. The internet has very few mentions of "roughs" in this context, when it does it is mostly in an instruction on uniforms and then once in a ranger study guide where it appears in this format:

What are the 3 types of civilian uniforms and their equivalents?
Slicks- Business attire. Equivalent=ASU (suit coat and tie)
Smooths- Business casual (slacks, polo tucked in, dress shoes). Equivalent=duty uniform w/badges
Roughs- casual attire (collared shirt, pants, belt, tactical or hiking shoes)

This is informative but still pretty vague, from the instructions he received it kind of looks like he will be rucking (carrying on for long distances with a heavy bag) in these roughs, so its not like khakis and polos. Or is it! The packing list also calls for 5 pr of business casual outfits which definitely is khakis and collard shirts.

Please help point me in the right direction and pray its something we have in a closet somewhere.
