Men's Guide Lite Pant


$145.00 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

Sizing Note: The ultralight Guide Lite pant features an athletic fit for active, early season hunts. After extensive field testing, we recommend you round up one full size in the waist for a more comfortable fit. 

The Guide Lite Pant offers the same freedom of movement as our award-winning Corrugate Guide Pant in a lighter-weight, more breathable package specifically designed for warm weather, early season hunts. The Guide Lite's 37.5-enhanced stretch nylon fabric not only dries quickly while actively working to keep you cool, but also stretches and moves with you for unparalleled comfort. The straight leg cut with an articulated fit and streamlined profile, feature mesh-lined pockets to promote airflow and keep weight to a minimum, without adding bulk to your system.

The Guide Lite pant features both belt and suspender loops on a rigid waistband, providing numerical waist and inseam sizing for a dialed fit on your new go-to early season, warm weather pant.

Material stretches after a days' wear

For single day hunts, these pants were great. However, I wore them for an overnighter and the material seemed to really stretch out (i.e. the crotch hung lower, making it feel like it might begin ripping while stepping over snags). I ended up selling.

Year round all weather pants

I work outside for a living, getting paid to hike around and look for invasive insects. I wear these pants day after day. No smell, they're quick-drying, insulate fairly well when wet. I have 2 pairs of these pants that I use on rotation every work week out of the year and they're holding up perfect to the PA wilderness. I also use these pants for hunting. In both situations, I often combine them with gaiters or brush chaps. Only downside to these pants is how much they start to pill after a few months. However, I feel if I had more on rotation and wasn't walking through very thick thorny understories as I am the pilling wouldn't be an issue. I'll be buying more of these in the future.

Great pants for sweaty guys

These pants are great for staying cool while covering lots of ground. The sizing is a bit wonky (I wear 38's in Levis and had to order 42's) but once you find the right size, you can live in these pants they are so comfortable. They have plenty of stretch and the rubber letters on the waistband keep them in place nicely. My favorite use for these pants is to wear on long hikes into the tree stand in late season when you're carrying lots of gear and trying not to sweat. Once at the tree, I throw a set of sanctuary bibs over top of them and can stay comfortable all day. They are also my go-to's when scouting as they've stood up to some pretty harsh abuse this season and are still flawless. I'm impressed how pants this thin can be this durable.

Great pant

Took these out and ran them through the paces about 5 miles each day for 3 days scouting between shotgun and muzzleloader season. Snow on the ground and temps in the mid 20s to low 30s with merino baselayer underneath. Followed first light chart to order up a size I normally wear 34 ordered 36 and I can fit light base layer with no issues or tuck an extra shirt in for the early season with them still comfortable in the waist. They are a bit noisy but a few washes and they are already getting softer, and the swoosh sound is getting better. I like the rubbery inner band to keep them in place.
