Best Pants AvailableReview by Jeff

These are my go to pants from summer scouting to rut hunts in November. Extremely durable and a joy to wear. The stretch on these pants make them very comfortable in any situation. I'm looking forward to the corrugate shorts that are coming out later this year. (Posted on 1/19/2017)

The Corrugate Guide Pant was the most comfortable pair of pants I have ever owned. They are light and feel like you are wearing nothing, yet are durable and keep you warm. They fit beautifully, and are extremely quite. I will purchase more pairs for everyday use as well. Thank you First Lite for hitting a home run with this product. (Posted on 1/16/2017)
Better than SITKAReview by OREhunter

I'm 6'4", 190. The large talk is perfect. Street clothes I wear a 36" inseam and these are spot on. These are better than my SITKA Accents pants for quiteness. I love the NON-digital camp pattern. Pockets are serviceable, stretch is great. If you wear suspenders, the loops are sturdy. Being in the NW, im a huge fan of waterproof seats. (Posted on 1/8/2017)
Favorite PantsReview by Eric

I have had the opportunity to use these pants in two totally different types of hunting situations. The first time I used these pants, was during a 7 day spot and stalk hunting trip in the early archery season. I loved the breathability of the pants and was comfortable in low 40 degree temps through mid 70's. I also used these pants later in the year, while hunting from a climbing stand. The stretch material allowed for a freedom of movement that I never had before in a hunting pant and really helped when climbing up and down the tree. I also love the Fusion camo pattern. These are my go to pair of pants and will be purchasing another pair ASAP. (Posted on 12/17/2016)

Passed the ULTIMATE test...Review by Jeremiah
5
I put these pants to the ULTIMATE test this year by wearing them for the Iowa Shotgun season. For those that don't know, pants can take a BEATING during this season. Most of the rips I get in my pants come from this season, and come from sticks/branches/multi flora rose/thorn bushes/barbwire.....and these things held up to it all. Besides the small strands that were pulled from the thorns (but are easily burnt back down to nothing), nothing beat these pants up. I paired them with some Alleghany Bottoms and stayed warm in 25 - 45 degree temps. I have just one request for a potential change to the pants.....and that's to use the same material that is on the gaitors, from the bottom of the pant leg to below the knee, to possibly help with the wear and tear in the area that see the most beating.

I will never wear blue jeans again! Review by Michael

These pants are amazing, some complaints of them being noisy but after washing them a few times they have quieted down. The fit and feel are amazing most comfortable pants I have ever worn. I recently wore them in 20 degree weather on a spot and stalk mule deer hunt in Western Nebraska and they worked perfectly. I was never too hot or too cold in them I wore a pair of Polar Tech silk weight for a base layer and the Guides over top. One day it was in the teens and the wind was blowing at 20 plus MPH and my legs were warm both days with just that. They cut the wind well and kept me just right as far as hot and cold goes.
My only complaints are the material the pockets are made out of isn't too durable I've developed a small tear towards the top of the upper hand pockets and I would love to see two back pockets or options. I'm kind of a weirdo I'm right eye dominant and left handed so I prefer my wallet in my left back pocket but I can live with the lack of that for how amazing these pants are! (Posted on 12/8/2016)

Nice PantsReview by Cheese

The material on these pants are great. Highly breathable. I only wish I had went with a medium tall instead of the large tall. I wear a 34x34 for jeans and these are a little lose around the waist, need to wear a belt with. The pants do have wuite a bit of stretch around the waist, so if you are befween sizes I would recommend sizing down. The length on these pants are great and they are pretty quiet. Hopefully they'll hold up well. (Posted on 12/2/2016)
No complaints hereReview by Thomas

While they don't rank IMO with my all time favorite Kanabs these pants have certainly earned their place in my gear room. They certainly shine in some areas MAYBE just a touch more than the Kanabs, like warmth and water resistance. Yet again, another FL piece that I wear both afield and to the office :) (Posted on 12/1/2016)
Versatile!Review by Adam

This weekend did three different hunts, twice in a stand for bucktail for 7 hours straight and once still hunting for muleys. It was cold (-3c or so) in the stand and they kept me warm and cozy with a merino baselayer and 0 degree bag over top. No sweating, just the right temp. When still hunting they were quiet, they didnt get ripped up when walking through brush, they kept me warm and dry and they were extremely breathable.

I love these pants, they are going to work for me all year.

On the sizing, im 6'0, 33 inch waist 34 inseam and the large works absolutely perfect. I suspect with a med/tall I'd be ok too but would not leave much room for layering underneath when needed.

Super happy. Can't wait to put them on again. (Posted on 11/22/2016)

Built for the Active Hunter and OutdoorsmanReview by RyanM
5
Summer scouting, travel, horseback, training hikes, antelope hunting, elk hunting, mule deer hunting...just a few ways I've used the Corrugate Duraflex Guide Pants this season. They are comfortable and easy to move in. The stretchy material and range of motion makes them great for active use. The DWR repels moisture very well and they dry fast. I'd describe these pants as a practical, all-around pant for the active outdoorsman. (Posted on 11/15/2016)

Might be the most comfortable pant I ownReview by Gerry Shaw

These fit and function like a dream. They flex in all the right places, enabling you to be agile and mobile working your way through the terrain. Whether its climbing over dead fall timber, hiking out of river bottoms, or even crossing the ever treacherous barbed wire fence, these things move with you. I would suggest two pairs, one camo and another in plain brown that you will want to wear everyday. (Posted on 10/21/2016)
Outstanding Illinois White Tail hunting PantReview by Dan Byington
5
I received my Corrugated Pants just in time for one of my White Tail hunts. These pants are Ultra lightweight, thin stretchy material. These are extremely comfortable no matter what I'm doing while hunting. Whether I was climbing tree stands, crawling through buck brush or just hiking, they are very quiet while walking/ bow hunting in IL. I have been looking for hunting clothes that will work in any environment, weather I'm hunting Midwest, Rocky Mountains, or Alaska. I don't want to be buying different camo for each environment. I want to buy one or two and that's it.

First Lite has became my favorite camo for hunting. I will also be looking at having a couple more pairs to ware on a daily biases. (Posted on 10/17/2016)
I'll be buying another pair for next year Review by Ken rat

I wear the kanab 2.0 when it's hot, dry. Bought a pair of these corrugate guide pants this year for rainy days on our yearly elk hunting trip to Colorado and i couldn't be more impressed with them. I wore gaiters when it was raining and snowing also and I have never been so comfortable in bad weather. When you stay dry you stay warm. Feet and legs were dry even in a all day rain 1 day and all day snowstorm and 30+ mph wids the next day. Awesome pants (Posted on 10/15/2016)
BEST PANTS ON THE MARKET!!!!!!!!Review by TJ Perez
5
These pants perform on another level! I got these pants in early August and waited to do a review on them until after my OTC deer hunt here in AZ and my OTC elk hunt in Colorado so I got a variety of use out of them.

All in all these pants are my new favorite and I wont look back at another set. I sold my Kuiu tiburons and chinooks as well as my Sitka mountain pants because I liked them so much and I am going to be getting another 2 pairs!

They have great stretch and breath on another level and and dry extremely fast!

The only downfall I would say about the pants is that when you put a belt on them and tighten the belt it rides up a bit and the belt comes in contact with your boxers or skin and find myself trying to pull the band of the pants over it to make it a little more comfortable. Also the material beading up in the crotch area possibly from your thighs rubbing together.

With that said if you're in the market for a great hunting pant or ones to just wear around town(solids) these are the best pants I've worn and will be buying several more pairs!

Thank you,
TJ (Posted on 10/5/2016)
Most comfortable hunting pant Review by Bruce P
5
Just returned from a weeklong hike-in elk hunt in Colorado. These have to be the most comfortable hunting pants I have ever worn. I was a bit apprehensive about the narrow cuff but in practice they fit around my boots almost like a gaitor and the stretchy pant doesn't allow them to ride up over my hiking boots.

We're going to Israel in February and I plan on having at least one more pair by then.

The only CON I can find with ththe pant is the lack of a left hip pocket. I mean, would it kill them to have two back pockets like any other normal pant? (Posted on 10/2/2016)
Comfort and FlexibilityReview by Geoff M.
5
Guys... these pants... pretty damn good. When worn appropriately, I don't think there is a better option. Great flexibility, breathability, and wear resistance. The DWR finish works well, and is better than all others I've tried. The swishy noise that you get with nylon will mostly wear away after a few uses and washes. Best temperature range is between HOT and about 45 degrees. If you are tree stand hunting, a base layer is recommended under 50 degrees.
The fusion pattern blows me away.... I've walked up on numerous small and big game animals to withing 20 yards. If footsteps made no noise, I'm sure I could pet a deer with this pattern. Haven't found any cons when using this pant for its intended activities. (Posted on 9/8/2016)

2 yr testedReview by Joel S.

Two best pieces of kit I own are First Lite Fusion and one of them is the Corrugate Guide Pant. (the other is the Chama Hoody)

Pros: Durable - while they are not as thick as Duck material and you will feel some briars they have not had issues getting caught nor torn. Still, I wouldn't expect them to be blackberry or thorn proof.
Water resistant - I've been in some pretty good squalls hunting turkey and deer without worrying about getting drenched and they dry fast too. That said they are NOT a rain pant - dress accordingly.
Temperature Range - Good down to about 40-45 degrees for me but I run hot. If you get cold you'd certainly want a solid base layer.
Material/design - Stretchy! really works with going up over and around anything! The knee of the pant is well made and the side zipper pockets are easy to use with one hand. Good designing! Blood/mud has washed out easily as well
Camo - Fusion Pattern I just can't think of anything better. Even pics of me on trail cam (wish I could attach them) the fusion is so well blended to multiple environments.

Cons: A bit thin material - if you buy this pant it is not a heavy cold weather pant. Just be aware. Buy the stormtight if you need that.
Sizing - this was recently addressed in the 2016 line but previously there was no long inseam! So I had to buy Large pants. They are far too loose and still slightly too short - I may have to buy new ones and try to sell the original pair because of that and that's a bit frustrating. If you have a long inseam use the sizing chart to see regular sizes and note if you may need tall version. Further, they don't list the Tall sizing in the sizing chart.
Design: Internal belt system like higher end pant would be nice.

Conclusions: Great light weight hiking/early season hunting pant that with layering can still give you support in later season hunts. Be sure to layer appropriately and note that they are not a rain/snow pant. Stretchy material and fabric allow for Full Range of Motion. A worthwhile part of anyone's kit. Be sure of your sizing and hunting environment needs. (Posted on 8/10/2016)

Awesome PantsReview by Chris

The Corrugate Guide Pants are the perfect hunting pant for year round use. Lightweight, stretch fabric breathes well, sheds light rain and morning dew, and resists tears during wire fence crossings or hikes through thick nasty brush. In 80+ degree weather they are cool and paired with mid or heavy weight bottoms they handle cold weather well too. I have the Kanab 2.0s as well and it really is almost a coin toss as to which pant I like more. (Posted on 8/9/2016)
Excellent, nothing else to sayReview by Bperk

I have only had the chance to wear these pants on two scouting trips so far. Both of which were in AZ in August which translates to really hot humid weather. We beat the bush hard and hiked a ton with absolute comfort wearing these pants. They were bomb proof. I even fell on a barbed fence with no tears to the pants at all. They were a bit warm for the weather but in my opinion there is no pant that would feel cool with that much hiking and hot weather. Comfort level was through the roof, they were absolutely bombproof, and they look fantastic if that matters. I highly recommend these to anyone that is looking for a new hunting pant.

The only downfall the pant that i saw and it could be just me was that as the day and myself warmed up the fit around the waist expanded and i was in deep need of a belt, my pants kept sagging down from the weight of my pack. A low profile belt would have fixed that instantly but i usually try not to hunt with a belt. (Posted on 8/9/2016)

Bought one pair in Forest as a hiking/ camping /shed hunting pant to save my camo for fall. I like them and so does the wife so I bought 2 more pair in solid color.
Love the soft shell stretch and now am wearing them to ride horse back. These are a great out door pant and she told me to wear them the last time she invited a couple for dinner. Wife approved. (Posted on 8/7/2016)
Ninja quietReview by Super Fly

I have used the Corrugated pants on several hunts now. A bit last year in rifle, some bow and most recently in open hand whitetail season. Great blend of form and function and perfect for the type of hunting I do. Man these are quiet pants! I put a stalk on a nice velvet six point. Brought him down with a double leg from 2 yards and finished with a rear naked choke. Dropped the people's elbow on a doe just this past Thursday from a tree stand. She never even knew I was there until I was standing over her doing the eyebrow thing. I am looking forward to using them later this month during Montana's new Snuka season. No pant gives me the combination of durability and flexibility I need to perform complex and sometimes ariel maneuvers while being quiet enough to get in close for unarmed hunting. Top notch stuff. Buy with confidence. Do you smell me now! (Posted on 8/7/2016)
You'll want another pair.Review by CimplMadeHunts
5
These are some of the most comfortable, yet durable pants I have ever owned. They are as comfortable as sweatpants, but are resistant like denim. When walking fields for pheasants in the early season, they are breathable and stretch easily to make some longer days more manageable. They allow you to walk restriction free through tall CRP and downed grasses. IF these ever wear out, I will be purchasing another pair. (Posted on 8/5/2016)

After tearing up some $150 hunting pants made by another company I began a search for a pant that could hold up to the brush I'm accustomed to encountering in Oregon.

I've had these pants now for just over a year and wear them at least 3 times a week doing all sorts of activities. These pants have performed flawlessly. They are starting to pile after washing just a little but after so much wear I can deal with that They are a slightly larger fit with heaps of room in all the right places.
The only addition I'd like to see is an internal belt system to take them in a bit. (Posted on 7/30/2016)

Best Pants I ownReview by Keaton

These pants are legit. Super light weight and comfy. Almost feels like sweat pants. They are a super light weight, but the material doesn't feel like it will rip if caught on brush. I really like the DWR finish. They survived a mountain house spill straight to the lap. It all just wiped off leaving nothing behind. They were noisy right out the box, but after walking for a while the noise was gone. These pants are bomb proof and I will be getting an extra pair. (Posted on 7/23/2016)
Pretty Darn Good PantsReview by Brandon
5
I ordered my Large Corrugate Pants (I am 6'3" 215 34.5" waist and they are a touch loose in the waist) before my Dall sheep hunt last year and I was excited to try them out. After 12 days straight in the field for that hunt and about 30 days of random scouting and bear hunting trips since then I can say this.
Pros:
Lightweight
They dry extremely quickly.
Super comfortable
Pockets... Seriously, a ton of pockets and deep too which allowed me to keep my pack on and have quick access to gps, range finder, sawyer water filter, phone skope, and snacks I would be eating throughout the day.
After 12 days straight of wear in hot, cold, wet, and dry they didn't seem to be stretched out at all.

Con:
Some of the high wear points could use some double stitching at least at the end of the seam. Day 7 of my sheep hunt the seem that holds the zipper flap down busted and while it doesn't affect the functionality of the pants at all it does seem like foreshadowing of things to come.

Buy two pair, you'll love them. Review by TL
5
I bought these pants fall of last year after I saw my Kanabs were showing some wear. I didn't know how I would like the "skinny Jean" fit so I was a bit reluctant.

First I used them as layering under my ice fishing/winter shell pants. I immediately purchased another pair in dry earth color. The first thing I noticed was how the legs fit into my winter rubber boots and didn't bunch up or rub. I wore them off and on all winter as a layering item. They breathed well when things got too hot and also provided the right amount of extra insulation under my shell pants, as well as a place to pocket some gear.

I wore them on spring time scouting and fishing trips, shed hunts, and hanging trail cameras.

I used them turkey/hog hunting in early April in Texas. On this hunt one of the first things I noticed was that I really liked the pocket layout. I could run and gun all day and my main calls were always at my disposal. I could easily separate mouth, slate, shaker, and my small box calls so that nothing rattled. The other thing I really liked was with the tapered legs the pants hardly ever caught on the Texas hill country brush. It was hot that week in Texas and the pants breathed very well.

I hunted turkeys in Minnesota also this year and layered these pants up with the allegheny's and waited out a gobbler in frosty wet grass on my knees and was comfortable until I was able to send an arrow his way.

Just this week I was in the BWCA in Minnesota and wore the pants paddling and portaging camping and fishing. They were great. Durability is second to none. It seems when fabric is wet all day from traveling by canoe it my get "tired" (for lack of a better term) then tear, or rot from being wet all the time. These pants held up amazingly well. They dried out very quickly, and shed most of the water out of them before entry in to the canoe. Back when I was guiding canoers I wish I had them.

So far I have worn these pants hunting and hiking and working in all kinds of different conditions snow, rain, wind, mud, humidity, heat, you name it. They haven't let me down. I've beat them up and roughed them up. Now even when I have yard work to do or chores on the farm to get done I'm sliding into these pants first. I'll be wearing them during whitetail season and as a mid layer pant when it gets colder. Then they'll go along ice fishing and winter camping. The cycle will start over. They've seen hard use since last fall and the only thing to happen to them is the iron on labels have worn off, but I don't mind, I've already put them to the test. (Posted on 7/22/2016)
Best camo I have ever owned!Review by Stefan

I ordered these pants about a week ago and was able to finally get them in the woods today. I went scouting here in Tillamook Forest in Oregon, to say they work is an understatement. While scouting I saw a doe about 60yards out. I creep in without heavy cover to test my self. She could hear my steps and would look around but never focused on me. I hit to where I knew I had shot with the bow and pulled out the range finder......29 yards! She never stopped feeding on the cloves. These pants are quite and felt great. Fusion is the best camo I have ever owned. (Posted on 7/17/2016)
Comfortable but not breathableReview by Bart

These pants are very comfortable... almost like wearing sweat pants. The stretch of the material and the fit are both great! The pocket design is awesomeas well... I love having a zipper cargo pocket to secure important things as well as an open pocket for quick access to the things you need frequently. The hip pockets are deep so nothing falls out.

The downside is the breathability... You are going to sweat no matter what when hiking with 50+ pounds on your back in 70+ degree heat, but I feel like these kept the sweat in more than the Kanab's.

Haven't worn them enough to comment on the durability and if they stink after a few days of hunting. (Posted on 7/11/2016)

Felt like a dreamReview by Cody
5
Everything I read and watched about these pants gave a green flag. My brother even had the chance to try them on before I received them, and he told me how great they felt. I thought he was just over exaggerating.

I couldn't have been more wrong. They were more comfortable than any pair of pajama pants or sweats I have every tried. Lets just say they they are the most comfortable pair of leg wear I have ever owned.

I immediately went and grabbed a bottle of water to test how water resistant they were. I dumped the whole bottle out on my legs and nothing stuck or soaked in. I was amazed.

I then started to squat and bend and walk and move. I even tried the duck walk in them. No resistance at all.

The next night I decided to put them to the ultimate test. I throw them on and headed out into the pouring rain. I climbed a near vertical hill that was full of tall soaking wet grass, shrubbery, and short trees. It was thick with vegetation. I actually sat on the wet grass at the top of the hill long enough for me to catch my breath (4 or 5 minutes) I then finished my little journey with out any restriction in any direction of movement, and headed back to the house.

Now that I was back in the lights, I noticed that the pants were covered in water (not soaked, and not wet) just covered. I had water droplets everywere. I was surprised that the water had not soaked in at all. I was even able to just jump while stoping my feet down and 90% of the water fell right off onto the floor. I then managed to wipe away the rest of the droplets with my hands. I quickly ran inside to dry my hands and face so I could feel how dry they really were. Bone dry.

If you consider these pants and then decide on something else, then you are certifiable insane.

I'll never buy another pair of hiking/hunting pants again unless they stop making these. (Posted on 7/8/2016)

When I found out that First Lite was going to be making nylon pant, I was so excited! Down here in AZ we have this gnarly vegetation called Catclaw. That stuff is notorious for tearing up pants and all clothing for that matter. The corrugates not only held up great through the stuff, but maintained comfort without gaining any pulls whatsoever. These are a great addition to the lineup and I would recommend them to anyone. Kudos First Lite! (Posted on 7/7/2016)
Tall size fits great!Review by Evan B.

Just bought the corrugate size LT and these are hands down the best fitting synthetic pants I've ever owed. I'm 6'5", 210lbs and have had trouble finding pants that don't fit weird. First lite nailed it with these. The inseam of the pants came out to 34 long. I usually wear a 38 waist and the large size fits even though they say it's a 34-36. They're definitely pricey but being tall I'm used to having to pay more for something that actually fits. (Posted on 6/28/2016)

I've trek many miles in the pants layered for cold and not for warm weather. Very comfortable and light for packing extra clothing. Drys fast and very resistant to wear. (Posted on 5/21/2016)
Belongs in the WoodsReview by Michael

I purchased these pants, as well as some other First Lite items, in October 2015 to use in the upcoming rifle season in NY. I am 6'2" 230lbs with a 34-36" waist depending on the pant style and brand. I generally wear a more loose/relaxed fit pant, due to the fact that I have tree trunks as legs. I was a bit concerned with what size to order so I called the customer service line and spoke to Casey I believe. He was really helpful in determining what to order and I ultimately went with these in XL, thinking that I would layer underneath in the cold months, and during the early season the little bit of extra in the waist can be managed with either a belt or a pair of suspenders. I am really glad I sized up slightly because these pants do have a more athletic fit to them, so the extra size allowed me to move comfortably in the hills. The nylon stretch, breathability, and DWR coating all combine to make this the one pair of pants to have on any outdoor excursion. The fabric is also very durable. There are a lot of briars in the area I hunt, so it is nice to have a pant that will stand up to some abuse. Busting brush and through the thick stuff never phased these. I would highly recommend these pants to anyone who is looking to find a great piece that belongs in the woods as much as we do! (Posted on 5/20/2016)

Just got my pants a couple weeks ago and have worn them quite a bit! Worn them to work, around town, and in the hills. We have had a ton of moisture lately and these pants have held up to everything so far, feel awesome, and look awesome. I find myself putting these on first thing Saturday morning and wearing them around the house like a pajama pant:) I agree they are a little noisy but not bad and noise might dampen a bit as they get broken in.

I've worn the guide pant everyday out shed hunting. Very comfy and easy to Layer underneath to keep warm or shed to cool off. I'd say it's comfortable from 75 degrees to 20 degrees with warm long jons. Or I'd go to the kenab pant for cooler weather. I'm gonna really test these pants this fall. I've ordered another pair for elk and bear hunting. I'll also test it in the stand during our whitetail bow season. (Posted on 5/14/2016)
Best Pant on the market!Review by Rusty

If your looking for a great all around pant for hunting look no further. For those days when it is below zero in the morning and 50 deg in the sun around lunchtime , these pants have you covered. Best features are the fabric itself, it is pretty water resistant and has amazing fit and stretch in all the right places. While quartering an elk you kneel down alot and they held up in the snow I wasn't wet. The suspender loops are also pretty cool, If i could add anything it would be a button to fold up the pants like they have on the kanab. Overall, of all the pants i own for hunting I will be wearing these next fall come opening morning. (Posted on 5/14/2016)

These pants really are bombproof plus not too hot in late august but plenty warm even on the coldest days, they are are my favorite piece of clothing after 1 season. The flex helps a lot in the steep country here in Idaho and I have had no fraying or ripping. The ability to have a "tall" sizing option is great plus for 2016 (Posted on 5/13/2016)
Comfort and FunctionReview by Matt Ortiz

When I first tried these pants on for the first time I knew they would be different. But it wasn't until I had them on on the field when I realized how comfortable they were. The stretch nylon has no resistance when extending your knees. The breathable fabric makes you question what has taken the industry to come up with this! These are great pants that will be my go to pants for a very long time. (Posted on 5/12/2016)

Ive used a few other brands light weight pants which have been good to marginal. I decided to try the corrugate and was really surprised. These pants are ultra light weight, breathable and very comfortable. I have been using them in warm weather in Hawaii where I am hiking across lava fields through rainforests and alpine forests. I even use them for work because of their comfort and flexibility. They have held up very well after use in thick forest and bushes, brambles and long elephant grass. The pockets were a little different to what I was used to but have become a favorite configuration for me now. (Posted on 5/12/2016)
The article of clothing that sealed my faith in FirstliteReview by Ryan

I work in military product integration and fielding. Without a doubt , this pant is a product of strict dedication to an evolution of product improvement. There is not a single thing that I would change. From its silent fabric to the security minded pocket design, without a doubt my favorite hunting/scouting pant I've owned. (Posted on 5/10/2016)

I can't say enough great things about this pant. They are as tough as nails, yet have just enough stretch to make them the most comfortable pants I own (even compared to non-hunting pants). They are the perfect weight/thickness, too. I wear them in the Texas hill country, which can temperature swings from the 80s to the 20s in a day and these pants are ready for it all. The fabric is sufficiently quiet for bow hunting. The pockets are perfectly placed, too. The fusion camo is a superior pattern, as well. Just ditched my kuiu gear for a complete kit in fusion this year and never looked back! (Posted on 4/20/2016)

New favorite outerwear Review by Brian

I bought these pants after I was having issues with my Kanab's tearing in the thick Pacific Northwest brush. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my Kanab's, you just have to be a bit more careful in our Western Washington environment.

I was a little suspicious on how durable this nylon would be, but after receiving them- I knew even before I had a chance to take them out in the field that these were the ultimate answer. The nylon is super durable, thick, and forgiving. It is not what you would come to think of when you think of nylon. These pants were the answer I have been looking for. As another reviewer put, I would buy these over and over again. They are my new favorite pants for when I hit the field. I'm 6'0, 210 lbs., wear a 34 waist and the larges fit absolutely perfectly.

You won't be disappointed with this piece. (Posted on 4/15/2016)
Great early season or high activity pantReview by Brock

One of my favorite pants. Breathes Great, fit is spot on, dries fast. I like the contoured/tapered fit in the calves as it fits snug around calves and boots but allows plenty of room for motion in the seat and thigh, even for us guys with bigger behinds and thicker thighs. I ordered a medium and I usually where size 31"-33" waist and 30" inseam and these fit perfect. (Posted on 4/8/2016)
Buy it again, and againReview by JB

I used these last hunting season with the fusion camo and they worked really well with the first lite base layers. They hold up well in brush and are really comfortable. They can be a tiny bit noisy if you are trying to scout/spot, like carly said. I really want these in dry earth but I wish they came in black too. (Posted on 4/2/2016)

I thought my kanab 2.0 pants were my go to pant, well the corrugate guide pant may be my new go to pant. These offer great stretching material so you'll feel a snag before they rip. They're comfortable, and repels water. Out of the package they wer a bit noisy but after a few washes the noise is gone. I wore them on an 8 mile hike to test them out and they blew me away. Great job FL!! (Posted on 3/15/2016)

I compare the Corrugate Guide Pant like your favorite pair of sweatpants...very comfortable! The pockets are well thought out, great stretch in the fabric for stalking/crawling, and water resistant. Was in tight on multiple mule deer this past fall with no noise issues at all. I'm ordering two more pair for 2016 (Fusion and Brown). Nicely done First Lite! (Posted on 2/18/2016)
Best All-Around Pant Review by Josh K
5
After 20-25 days of mostly backpack hunting in Idaho in Montana, these pants show essentially zero wear. They are remarkably comfortable due to the amazing stretch fabric. Yet, compared to other pants I own (Sitka Ascent, Kuhl Renegage) the Corrugate Guide do not become stretched out after getting wet or several days of use. Speaking of wet, the Corrugate Guide easily outperforms the Sitka when it comes to DWR. It takes way longer for water to eventually soak through the Corrugates. Drying time on on the Corrugates is fantastic. I am a big fan of the pockets on these pants. There are 3 pockets on each leg. The traditional hand pockets are deer and lines with a very nice feeling fabric. On each leg there are 2 cargo pockets, one zippered and one with a flap. Perfect.

Their are just a few things that were less than perfect. I personally do not like the big metal button that First Lite puts on these pants at the waist. I had an alterations shop replace it with a flat plastic button for $5. Another note, I am 6'3" and 185lbs. The perfect pant size for me is a 33'x35". To get the right size waist (33"), I had to order the Medium pants, which are then fairly short for a someone with a 35" inseam. I had the pants altered to 'let out the hem' to buy me about 1" of additional inseam. Not a design flaw, just something to keep in mind if you have long legs and a relatively small waist.

The real icing on the cake is that my wife actually gives me 2 big thumbs up on these pants from a fashion standpoint. I have the Pine color (in addition to Fusion) and I regularly wear them out to dinner and almost any social engagement.

Long story short, after wearing the pants once, I reached for the Corrugate Guide on EVERY backpacking and hunting trip I went on this year and left my other hunting pants at home.

Oh, and they are plenty quite for bow hunting. At lease according to the 2 elk I shot this year while wearing them. (Posted on 10/26/2015)

I put these pants to the test on the Oregon coast for the 2015 archery season. My boots ripped, two of my shirts ripped, a different brand of synthetic hunting pants ripped. However, the corrugate pants held up nicely. I've ordered another pair. (Posted on 10/24/2015)

Great early season pant. Very breathable as well as durable. I have been stomping through sage brush and berry patches looking for grouse and so far these things are bomb proof. (Posted on 9/7/2015)

The weight and cut of this pant is perfect; I believe you could forget you were wearing them! I'll be trying them out on an elk hunt this weekend. My only concern is that they seem a bit noisy. I believe that will subside to an extent as they are broken in. Should be a great bow season pant! (Posted on 9/3/2015)
MUST HAVE!Review by Jon

From stalking out west to sitting in a treestand, this pant has exceeded all of my expectations in regards to durability and comfort. The fit is great and comfort/range of motion far surpasses any pant I've ever worn (sitka, scentblocker, kuiu.) I ordered in fusion for hunting, but will be ordering the solids for work as well. Worth every penny!!! (Posted on 8/17/2015)

Probably one of the toughest pants you can get! Stalked on some rough lava and walked through Kiawe trees on multiple hunts and never noticed any signs of wear on the pants. Super light weight that has fabric stretch just like board shorts. (Posted on 8/14/2015)

These pants are amazing, extremely lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. With the stretch material it made climbing over blow down and up clay banks in western Oregon unreal. Never once felt restricted in my moment and with the fusion pattern it makes these pants a must have during archery season (Posted on 8/9/2015)

Ultra lightweight, thin material that stretches between seams. Very comfortable and breathable in hot weather. Fabric stretch made hiking a breeze while striding and ascending.

Must have early season pant! (Posted on 7/21/2015)
Out of the Box/Initial Thought: Great PantReview by carly
5
I just received my Corrugate Pants and I have been walking around in them for a number of hours getting a feel for them and figuring out its strengths and weaknesses. So far, my overall consensus is that these are great pants. The stretch is fantastic. I can freely kneel, stoop, and raise my knees without discomfort/without hiking my pants up. The pockets are great... front pockets are lined for cold days/nights if I need to put my hands in to keep my fingers warm, and the side pockets have sewed in top flaps so that whatever is in there, wont jump out aka keys, calls, gps, etc. The legs are nicely tapered so that I don't have extra baggage hanging around and they hug my ankles well. I also appreciate the elastic on the back, as a girl who is quite small and finding anything in my size in camo is impossible. But First Lite offered the smallest waist size and now elastic so I am on board!
Now, with all these positives there is one thing I would like to have changed for the next line. These pants are rather noisy. They aren't as bad as some pants out there but for the price of the Ascent Pant by Sitka, I was hoping for something as quiet as Sitka. Spreading my feet apart as I walk helps a little bit, and sneaking wont be an issue, but if I want to scout/spot quietly? ehh that may take some effort.
But overall I do like these pants and I will be interested to see how they do in the field. (Posted on 6/25/2015)
