I was stoaked to see someone offering more technical brush pant. As soon as I tried them on, I wanted to write a glowing review but convinced myself to wait until after hunt season(s) so it was a more accurate review. I hunted Dove, Chukar and Quail in them this year - 83.7 miles . I plunged through fields of thistle jumping Dove, banged my knees on plenty of rocks scrambling after Chukar, knocked my ankles together plenty before the weather necessitated gaiters; there isn't a threadbare spot or busted stitch anywhere on the pants. The thistle poked right though the double nylon fronts, but I have yet to find a brush pant that will stop point penetration. I hooked the crotch on a couple of fences and, true to the line in the advertisement, the pants stretched and released from the barb instead of tearing. There is some pilling on the 4-way stretch nylon where my pack and sweater rub on the upper part of the pant, but that's it for wear. Seriously. Not a stitch out of place elsewhere.
At the end of Dove season, when the hunting moves out of the fields and into the hills, I stole the First Lite suspenders from my Obsidians and utilized the built in suspender loops on these. It helped them fit even better. This was especially true when carrying a pack full of birds; the belt of the pack can ride on the belt of the pant and push everything down onto the hips instead of the pants staying where they fit me best: right at the top of the hips.
These pants give you all the fit and comfort you would expect from first lite, but not the protection they claim. I've used them pretty extensively over the last few weeks and have found that even the lowly blackberry has enough thorn to stick you. The lighter material on the upper part of the pant is super comfortable and the far is as good as advertised but the heavy panel soaks up water like a dish rag. Overall review is good, and if you don't mind slowing down and picking your way through the bushes you'll be fine but these should not be used as a dedicated pair of Briar britches.
Purchased the pants for Coues Deer hunting in South East Arizona. The pants fit well and were comfortable. I do wish the cut was a little bit more friendly for boots. While in the field I still ended up getting stuck and scratched by the AZ brush most of it was in the back of the leg. The Pants did not seem to be very quiet, but I imagine it is hard to strike a balance between stealthy and durable. One of the reasons purchased the pants was they were not made of cotton and I do look forward seeing how they hold up to South East Alaska brush and Devils club for spring Grouse hunting.
I got these for my husband for Christmas for hunting in Pennsylvania. After 2 weekends of coyote hunting and walking through the brush and woods they have snags and small tears. A thorn tore through and left a huge scratch across his leg and he even had thermals on underneath. With the description saying these would stand up to brush and thorns I thought these would be worth the money. The only thing he likes us they do move well with the stretch. For the terrain here in Pennsylvania, you would be better off with regular jeans. Don't waste your money unless you are walking through a hay field. They might stand up to that.
My initial reaction to these pants was very favorable. The fit was a little goofy with the “slim fit” legs considering most upland guys wear 8” boots. I got past that and have worn these all season on many pheasant hunts (I would say that my first shift schedule forces my season to be at a moderate level compared to what I used to hunt) Almost any sicker, thorn, or briar can get through and poke you. I have not had so much of an issue with most types of seeds sticking to it, although there have been a few times I’ve had to clean them off. At the end of the day, these pants just DO NOT hold up to brush. I wish they would because they feel great. There is not one particular failure, as a whole they are just wearing out.
