    Great pant

    Great pants! They’ve been just right for me lately, the weather has been mild enough to wear these so far this season. I paired them with the kiln boxer and furnace boot top zip offs. I was comfortable in a tree stand in light wind, and the reinforced legs were great for tracking and busting through some brush. They do fit great with minimal layers, but with two base layers under them they got a little snug. Not uncomfortable but just right. Order true to size and I think you’ll be alright unless you try and cram more layers under them than I did! The knee pads though!! I thought I’d just ditch them when they showed up and I tried them on for fit. BUT I gave them a chance and it’s heavenly you don’t notice them when you’re walking around and kneeling down is never an issue now. No rocks sticks or thorns jabbing your knees!

    Great pants, but a little in the large size. Knee pads worked great when gutting Elk on rocky terrain. I will definitely recommend them to all my fellow hunters. Keep up the good work FirstLite!

    Best hunting pants I’ve ever owned

    I’ve owned several different brands of hunting pants and these pants are on a different level. They are extremely versatile. They are extremely warm, especially with a base layer. The lower part of the legs is perfect for busting through brush. If I had to pick one con, it would be the amount of metal zippers that make noise. Rubber coated zippers or cords would be an upgrade.

    Just finished up a week long hunt in Montana with temperatures in the low teens. These pants held up great. Warm. Knee pads are perfect.

    These Pants are The Bees Knees

    Best pair of first lite pants I own! I love the layout of the pockets and the knee pads are a great addition when saddle hunting. Only fault in my opinion is they ran a little snug in the waist compared to my Corrugate Foundry Pant, I had to send back an go 1 size up. Would definitely recommend this pant to anyone interested! Can get down to about 35-40 degrees comfortably with the correct base layers.
