The fitment of these pants is about perfect. They breath pretty well and they move with you. Haven't tested their durability in any thickets yet but they seem to be constructed with durability in mind.
Added these bad boys for a opener spring bear hunt. It was in the 70s and we hiked around 3000ft in elevation in 3mi. They did a great job of wicking moisture and kept me cool during the hike. At night it would drop into the 40’s and they were more than enough to keep me warm. I got them in a large as a 34 in waist and they were a little big but I swapped my suspenders off my rain gear and was good to go. Great pant and super quite. I am very happy with their performance and plan to pick up some more colors!
I have worn these (and the old version) for a few seasons now and am quite impressed. Very comfortable, no smell, dry pretty quick, quiet. Not to happy with the new cargo pockets that are on the side of you leg, the front of the thigh feature on the old pants was way better. Pretty damn tough considering what they are made of. I have had more than a few trips nasty locust patches and they came out with only minor picks in the fabric. Suspenders are a game changer for carrying packs. Just buy the pants.
I bought these to replace some of my early season gear. I was a little worried they wouldn't be durable, but they are well built. The feature I like the most about these pants is they are very lightweight. You can wear these next to skin or layer under neath. I bought the LT as my inseam in at 34 inches and would rather have extra material at the bottom than having the legs too short.
I’m pretty picky about my gear and these pants are a great addition. Comfortable in the heat and humidity even under exertion. The few burrs that would stick brushed right off, pockets were well-thought in placement and accessibility. Suspenders don’t seem to be a big deal for my needs but will see as time goes on. Well done on the design of these pants!
