Obsidian Merino Pants

Ripstop Merino and Stretch Nylon

$180.00 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

Silent, odor resistant, and comfortable from 100 degrees into late season, the Obsidian merino pant takes the torch from the best-selling Kanab 2.0 pant with the fit being based off our hugely popular Corrugate Guide Pant. The Obsidian's ergonomic design and proprietary, stretch merino/nylon fabric work in conjunction to move and flex with the body and provide maximum durability all while preserving the qualities you love about Merino. Reinforced with rip-stop nylon, this woven merino pant has no UV signature or shine and fends off odor-causing bacteria better than any synthetic. Stretch nylon panels also enhance range of motion and provide durability and support in high stress areas. The Obsidian pant is equipped with detachable suspenders for a superior fit with pack or harness and can be used with other First Lite pants. This piece is machine washable and will dry quickly over a branch or on a line. These features make the Obsidian a superior choice for a wide range of stationary and active hunting applications.

I received these a few weeks ago and haven't truly field tested them in most of my hunting grounds. At this point I am very happy with the pants. I have gone snow shoeing and some winter hiking in them. They certianly feel comfortable and seem quiet enough to archery hunt in. I look forward to hunting with them this fall.

Love these pants!

I have used these pants over the last few weeks to hike and hunt small game over lots of miles. Weather from 20 to 60 degrees and they have performed great. Will definitely be adding more first lite gear ASAP!!!

Could be great

Let me first say I do love these pants! I really think they could be the best hunting pant on the market. My only complaint is they are not that durable. After 8 days of wearing them in 2019 I wore 2 holes in the crotch area and another hole in the knee. Only 8 days and not all in a row, spread out through the year . For almost $200 I would expect a little more. I wish they would reinforce these areas, or make the corrugate pant more quite.

Location: Tree stand
Primary Use: Hunting all kinds of game.
So far, so good.

First off I'm 5'9" 180 and no chubbie. I ordered medium based on comments here and sent them back for large since they were a bit snug in the waist. Other than feeling like that snugness would get on my nerves especially with a base layer, the mediums were perfect. The large ones aren't a bad fit either, so dont let that bother you. On performance, I haven't put them through the ringer, but they seem more durable than some of the other comments suggested. Holy crap they are comfortable. I wear them around the house. They are thinner than I anticipated, but are warm or cool when you need it. It's like witch craft. Couple them with a base layer and I've found them to be good down to freezing on a calm day in the stand. Windy conditions make it a different ball game though. Overall I'm happy with them and look forward to Turkey season in the spring. Hope my long winded review helps you, but with the cost ($$$$) it called for more than a couple lines of thought.

Location: Every time I’m in the outdoors
Primary Use: Hunting mostly but have used them hiking and fishing as well
Great product

I purchased these pants in August for the upcoming season. I waited to write a review to give an accurate assessment on the pants. Bottom line up front is they are a great pair of pants. I have used them from early season whitetail in Oklahoma to chasing mule deer, Javelina and oryx in the high desert mountains of New Mexico. They have kept me cool and dry in 80 degrees and warm all the way down to the 20s when active. These pants are as versatile as the advertised. I highly recommend for anyone wanting a pant that will fit a wide range of hunting.
