I love this pant so much....I feel like Mr. Fancy Pants. If I could wear them everyday to work I would (and do sometimes). Most comfortable pant I own, I've slept in this pant a-plenty and love the versatility. To be frank, I am mildly obsessed with all Firstlite gear and if my wife knew how much I own, I would be out in the cold. These clothes are well engineered. Wool is of course the best thing Firstlite does, but I am loving every piece. My Uncompahge is my go to for most weather. My Firstlite gear simply the best gear I own.
I'm going to start this off by saying I love these pants. They are extremely comfortable, to the point I end up wearing these around the house sometimes. They are cool enough, and wick moister, to wear in the dog days of summer (I live in the swamps of VA where it gets to 100 with 100% humidity. So trust me when i say they can keep up with wicking moister where it counts). But, they can keep you warm enough to use when the weather starts to get slightly brisk in the early fall with a little layering. The only downside, but not enough to drop a star rating for me, is their durability against heavy brush/briars. If I know that I am going to be wading through briar fields of VA or sage brush of the west, I am sure to reach for either my First Lite Sawbuck pants, or other heavier pants. Other than that, most of the time I am in the field I have these on.
Well made product. Good functional design. Comfortable. Thinner material than I am used to for pants. I like the suspenders that come with it. I am satisfied with the product, KUIU Attack pants seem to be more versatile and better value for the money.
These are a great pair of pants! Fit is true to size I’m 6’ 190lbs and a large fit me great!! I have yet to hunt in them yet but they are going to be great for tree stand hunting here in Oklahoma in the early season. And work perfect for my layering system going into late season Will also be using them to chase elk in Colorado! Highly recommend these pants if your on the fence just bite the bullet and buy them you won’t be disappointed!!
Used in both Western and Eastern Oregon turkey hunts with distinct weather conditions and temperatures. Performed great in both cold and warm conditions, very comfortable, breathable
