I hunt whitetail in a lot of brushy, swampy, and extremely thorny areas in Northern NY, and the Sawbuck have unparalleled tolerance for abuse. They resist snagging and pulling so well that I barely notice I'm walking through endless seas of briars and honeysuckle hell. When I hunt areas I'm already familiar with and I know I can mostly avoid thorns, I wear the Corrugate. When I'm scouting or hunting new, unfamiliar areas, where there's likely to be lots of prickles, I wear the Sawbuck. If you want pants you can punish the way you'd punish your bratty, unwanted stepchild, for throwing a party in your home and trashing it while you're away, you want the Sawbuck Pants.
I spend a lot more time than the average hunting, I'd say, hunting and scouting the public lands of Alabama. I'm looking for the places nobody else wants to go. Sometimes that means I'm going in by boat, other times it means I'm walking in through a 3 year old cutover that's infested with briars thick enough to engulf a 6'3" 270lb man, believe me I know. I had been running the Corrugate guide pants for two years, but my thighs and lower legs paid the price from briar snags. Doesn't help that I'm allergic to briars (who'd have thunk it), and whelp up. As far as abrasion resistance, these pants are EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Briars roll off my legs like water off a duck's back. Absolutely haven't had one iota of problems with briars, snags, deadfall, rock, or barbed wire fences. My only "rub", pun intended, with these pants is that there are no zippered cargo pockets, and no zipper on your wallet pocket; however, the front pockets are quite deep and I've never lost anything. Call me paranoid, but when your bushwhacking through the tough crap, I need to know I'm not losing my wallet, head lamp, etc. For that reason I'm giving the pants 4 stars. If the cargo pockets and back pocket from the Corrugate pant were transferred over, made of the same tough as nails material, I'd give them 10 stars. Overally, excellent pant. Have held up from the hardwoods of northeast Alabama, to the swamps of the Alabama river down in the black belt. Also, a little bit of a "comfort flex" waist would be great for us fried squirrel and gravy eatin' southerners. Great job guys. Keep innovating!
Works good for upland bird hunting. A little long in the inseam. There wasn’t a shorter inseam length offered for the waist size
These pants hold up to a lot of interaction. My only complaints would be the design flaw in stitching of the seam direction and the material beading up in the crotch area. The seam down the leg catches on brush because the lip is present from the way it was stitched. And the material is made to breathe and it does a great job, just annoying that the material beads up in the crotch area from the material rubbing. I also went a size up on the waist, since everyone suggested it in the reviews, and they were right.
1 day pushing through green briar and blackberry in the Ouachita mountains chasing quail and 3 days in Kansas walking over 35 miles hunting pheasant and quail. I can say these are by far and away the best upland pants I’ve ever worn. There’s not a close second. Temps ranged from 80 degrees to 16 degrees with a windchill around 6. All it took was a little layering and they performed brilliantly. There are no snags or anything to show the abuse they took. I’m looking forward to the test of the season!
