These pants are amazing, the fit is great, the pockets are well placed and they can be surprisingly warm. I will definitely be wearing these pants on any hunt not matter if it is a spring or fall bear hunt, spring turkey or early to mid season whitetail, they are always coming with me. I will definitely be getting a pair of these pants in a non camo colour for everyday wear and camping/outdoor activities in the summer.
Really comfortable pants but got jabbed by a stick and tore a 1 inch rip the third time I wore them. Is there any way to have a little more rip protection? 2 hours in the field total walking to and from my deer stand and got a rip on some pretty expensive pants. Bad luck maybe but it wasn’t very gnarly stuff I walked through.
fit is great. love the pockets. I can see where durability is an issue, but for whitetails these are a great piece from a scent control standpoint. I appreciate the stretch, cut, and overall layout of the pants.
Before this pant went through the washing machine a couple of times I would give it 5 stars for what I was using it for (northern Nevada chukar hunting) the pant was comfortable and kept me both warm and cool. I used this pant in weather ranging from 10deg to 80deg and never had an issue. The problem is that after it went through the wash a couple of times the wool fibers seemed stretch out or loosen up, after this happened the pants seemed to grab every burr possible rendering pant useless. I called customer service hoping they could at least give me a discount on a new pair that I would only use in situations where burrs were not an issue but this was to no avail. I was not looking for a handout, only looking for what I thought to be fair after spending 180$ on a pair of pants that can’t be worn.
I used these in Colorado for September deer and October elk seasons and they performed better than expected. Breathed well in the heat and insulated in the cold for the later season. The suspenders are excellent as well.
Cannot recommend these enough.
