The best hunting pant I have ever owned. Comfortable, warm, quite, and durable.
I purchased these pants a few months ago and have used them in a variety of situations. From squirrel hunting in January to spring turkey. Temps from 30-75. I’m able to sit with them in temps down to about 35 without another layer, and still hunt in temps up to 75. They are perfect in the temp range of 40-65 without being too cold or too warm. They are not made for tromping through briars. They are extremely comfortable as well. I didn’t have much use for the suspenders that are included. Overall, a great pair of pants for hunting and hiking.
I purchased this piece last year and wore it as a mid season outer layer in TX / KS archery seasons. It is perfect as a stand alone pant from 55 degrees and up. Water resistant qualities kept me dry while walking through dew covered bean fields. It is a solid quiet bowhunting pant. I bought the XL to allow for a heavy base layer if I needed it. I could have easily gotten away with a large for a stand alone pant without base layers. Everything I have purchased from First Lite has been of exceptional quality and has no doubt made me more efficient in the field.
I'm glad I bought these and not the merino pants. These are a great mix of warm and breathable. I went turkey hunting last week and hucked my way through much unexpected thorn brush. They held up great- no tears or even any sign of degradation. Very easy to clean, and the suspenders are awesome. I think these would even be nice in the summer when windy, and especially useful anything sub 50-degree weather. To my surprise, I thought the excess room would be a downfall but the suspenders hold the pants in place extremely well spot on or over the hip and allow for much more room when sitting down, squatting, hiking, and not to mention breathability. Cant go wrong with these although 200$ was a bit pricy they seem to be pants I will wear for years to come (and hopefully out west eventually).
Wore this backcountry hunting in Colorado in April turkey hunting. Whether it was 20 or 60 degrees I was comfortable. I can’t believe how weightless these are. I also really like the stretch when climbing ridges. Super impressed.
